If you have just started making candles or are using our calculator for the first time, follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Enter the weight of the candle

In the first input field marked "Weight of the finished candle", enter the desired weight of the candle in grams. This is the total weight of the candle you plan to make, excluding the weight of the container or mold.

Step 2: Enter the percentage of fragrance oil

In the second input field labeled "percentage of scented oil", enter the percentage of scented oil that you want to add to the candle wax. Take care of the maximum fragrance content for the type of wax you use.

Step 3: Do the math

Click on the "Calculate" button below the input field. Our candle making calculator will instantly determine the precise amounts of wax and fragrance oil needed to make your candle.

Step 4: If you are making multiple candles

If you plan to make more than one candle with the same specifications, you can easily adjust the quantities for multiple candles. After calculating the required amounts of wax and fragrance oil for one candle, simply multiply these values ​​by the number of candles you intend to make.

For example, if the calculator shows that you need 50 grams of wax and 5 grams of fragrance oil for one candle, and you plan to make 5 candles, you will need:


50 grams x 5 candles = 250 grams of wax

5 grams x 5 candles = 25 grams of fragrance oil
