Everyone knows that one of the best parts of a beeswax candle is the awesome smell that it gives off. How can you not love it!?
My question has to do with rendering beeswax and retaining that smell.
My initial rendering comes from a solar wax melter. After which I typically melt that wax in boiling water on the stove and strain it back through some sweatshirt material. I have noticed tha it does not smell as nice or strong as the beeswax that I purchase from some of the local distributers.
Am I doing something wrong?
