Traditional Wax: Paraffin provides the strongest room filling scent.
Soy Wax: A natural wax that provides a clean burn and a gentle scent in the room.
Coconut Oil Wax: A natural wax that provides both a clean burn and a strong fragrance in the room.
How strong will the scent be in my candle?
Scent strength is based on two factor: type of wax used and % of scent to wax allowable for the wax to perform properly. This is called "fragrance load".
Traditional Wax: has an allowable fragrance load of approximately 2%-12%
Soy Wax: has an allowable fragrance load of approximately 2%-8%
Coconut Oil Wax: has an allowable fragrance load of approximately 2%-10%
Geeda’s Hand Poured Candles uses the highest % of Fragrance load allowable by wax type. You choose the wax and we provide the strongest scent possible. Try all three for comparison!
We use paper wicks for Pillars and for natural waxes. We used Cotton wicks for traditional wax container candles because it is a slightly cooler burning wick for this soft wax. We do not use any metal in our wicks.
All our fragrances are phthalates free and while 90% are also skin safe, we do not do any testing on skin.
