So I made my soy tarts which look great and smell great cold, but there is no hot throw whatsoever! And were cured for a week! Not unless you are right over the warmer and only then is it very weak! My warmer is an electric one and not a tealight one.

So where did I go wrong? Did I add my fragrance oil at the wrong temperature, between 140 - 150 degrees Fahrenheit?

Should I use a soy / paraffin blend?

I am absolutely at a loss now :( and would be most grateful if anyone could point me the right direction please

How much fragrance did you use per lb. of wax and where did the FO come from? Are you using all soy or a soy blend? Paraffin does hold the scent better.

I make soy candles and just recently started playing with melts as requested by my customers. I make the melts the exact same as my candles and they throw hot and cold great. Perhaps your having trouble with you FO's, or wax?

What % fragrance? And what type of soy wax? I too use an electric melter and 100% soy wax, but haven't had any issues with throw. Even at 5% you should get more than proximal throw, but it may take some experimenting to get it just right. Wax can be a b**** to work with until you get used to it!

That said, you may find it easier to work with a soy/paraffin blend and slowly work up to 100% soy. It took me a few years to get comfortable with using just soy. You can mix a blend yourself too! Maybe 65% soy and 35% paraffin, or 50/50.

I started out just over 20 years ago using canning paraffin :lol: got a 25lb block of paraffin wax for Christmas that year, was the happiest kid alive! :lol: You can get blocks of paraffin at Michaels or AC Moore if you need some asap. I chipped away at mine with a hammer and one of my Dad's chisels! Ice picks work well too :mrgreen:

Good luck, my friend! Wax can be a delight, after you get to know it!
