Candlecrafters...

How can you make gel candles that don't smell like the gel? I've had rotten luck with scent and gel, but yet I don't like gel without scent if I can get it right.



I refill glass wall candles when they get burned down, and I like the look of gel in them.

  • If you're talking about the grain wax that you can spoon in there, yes I have, but I could never find any scent for it. I live in a small town in the middle of Texas, and you have to go out of town to find anything...
