We've done quite a bit of testing with essential oils in candles and have found that they are just not compatible. Through our testing, we have found that they have a good cold throw before you light them, but once they start to burn, you may get very little scent. At the worst, you may get a fuel-like smell. We do still encourage you to experiment and see what you can come up with. If you want to try using essential oils we would recommend you use 1 oz of oil per pound of wax.
