What are fragrance oils?

We hear a lot about fragrance oils in the crafting world, but what is fragrance oil? Fragrance oils are substances created by perfumers to mimic a particular scent.

From fruity and fresh scents to baked goods, seasonal specialities, fruity fragrances and floral fantasies, the aromatic possibilities are endless. Many people tend to enjoy using fragrance oils for candle making, as well as creating soaps and wax melts.

What can fragrance oils be used for?

Much like our pure essential oils, our premium fragrance oils are perfect for making luxury candles and soaps due to their long-lasting, potent scents. Finding the right fragrance oils for wax melts is also an easy, streamlined experience.

Fragrance oils are also great for adding to slime, enhancing potpourri, and creating bath bombs, along with a wide range of other bath and body products.

Containing a bespoke, professional range of fragrance oils for candle making and fragrance oils for soaps, our Fine Fragrance range has been specially formulated for use in these sorts of projects and can produce a longer and stronger scent than other fragrance oils for candles.

What are the best fragrance oils for candles?

The great thing about fragrance oils for candles is that they can accommodate a number of scent preferences and possibilities, however, there are some fragrance oils that are considered most popular for use in candles.

  • Vanilla: This classic, luxurious scent is a great base fragrance oil for candle-making due to its rich and versatile scent. Our vanilla fragrance oils come in a number of varieties including Vanilla Bean, and Vanilla Cream.
  • Fresh Linen (Floral): Ideal for creating the timeless aroma of cleanliness, this premium fragrance oil combines delicate notes of baby powder and light musk with soft stains of lavender, jasmine, and tulip.
  • Sandalwood: Gentle and musky, this scent is a great choice if you tend to like more natural fragrance oils for candles. This fragrance oil is also a great base for classic and calming candle-making, combining soft florals with fresh earthy notes.

All of these fragrance oils for candles are also perfect for making luxury soaps, and can function as wax melt fragrance oils too.

How to use fragrance oils to make soaps

Another popular way to use our fragrance oils is in soap making. As with candles and wax melts, fragrance oils lend themselves very well to soaps due to their unique but powerful scents, as well as their easy formulas.

While soaps can be a little trickier to work with, we've broken down the steps into a handy beginner's guide to help get you started.

What's the difference between essential oils, fragrance oils and blends?

Essential oils are natural substances derived from plants, fruits, trees and herbs.
