Ep064: What do you mean there's math involved?

Who was it that said making candles was easy? (probably someone who's never made a candle...)  Candle making can be challenging, especially at first, and when you're trying to learn the craft there is a lot of things to know and understand. Particularly when it comes to following the math involved so that you can make safe, reliable candles that perform well (and to be able to batch make candles). In today's episode I'm sharing the 'simple' equation to calculate wax and fragrance oil (FO) percentages needed for your chosen vessel.   ----------   SHOW LINKS: Here’s the equation: Wax weight needed: (net weight) / (100%) + (FO%) = wax weight FO weight needed: net weight - wax weight = FO weight   Here’s the example: Net weight = 300g FO% = 10% Wax weight needed = 300/110% = 272.73g wax  FO weight needed = 300g - 272.73g = 27.27g FO   Otherwise simply use the CandlePal app: https://candlepal.com/   Don't forget to DM me on Instagram to get your free copy of my Birthday Week Journal :)   - The Candle Makers Collective: https://www.candlebusinesscoach.com.au/membership - Free Facebook group for candle makers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/candlebusinesshub - Download the Candle Business Marketing Kickstarter Kit: https://www.candlebusinesscoach.com.au/opt-in - Sign up for my Daily Motivation emails: https://www.candlebusinesscoach.com.au/dm-emails - Website: https://candlebusinesscoach.com.au/   Let’s be Instagram friends: https://www.instagram.com/candlebusinesscoach/   Make sure you SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss any future episodes.
