Jar Fill Volume
The first thing to do is work out how much liquid your jar holds up to the point it will be filled with wax. If you are using our jars, we’ve worked this out for you already, just look for the “recommended fill volume” on the product page. In this example we’ll use the Libbey 478 Status jar with a RFV of 300ml. If you are using your own jar, just fill it with water to the level you plan to fill with wax and measure the amount of water in the jar with a measuring jug.
Example Fill Volume
300ml x 10% = 30ml Fragrance
Calculate Wax Weight
270ml x .83 = 224 grams of wax
Now it's time to measure up!
Don’t worry, it’s easy….grab your ruler and let’s go!
If you are still not quite sure about how to measure out the right fragrance and wax or would like some help with the size of wick to use then why not attend one of our candle classes. We run these every month but it pays to book early.
