Aroma blends for candles

All the measurements below are designed to scent 200g candle wax at 5%.  To make a stronger smelling candle you can add up to double the amounts suggested here.  Scale up when you are making more than 200g candles.

Blend the aromas together (apart from the raspberry ketone - see notes with recipe) and add to the candle wax just before pouring.  Stir well.
