Many are. Look for the fragrances that have the red heart and hand icon. These indicate fragrances suitable for soaps.

I'm making soy container candles and measuring .75 lb of wax per candle. I thought that I read somewhere that I should use 3% sent by weight per candle, is this correct?

Hi Jen,

Actually, to have any type of smell when using Soy wax, you will need to be closer to 5-6% fragrance by weight. Most people measure in 1 pound quantities and round up and use about 1 ounce of fragrance per pound of wax when starting out.

Thank you!
