1 part is whatever you want it to be. If you are working in drops, then it is a drop. If you are working in teaspoons, then it is 1 teaspoon. 1 cupful, 1 thimbleful, etc. It’s up to you. Just be consistent. If you are using drops then continue measuring in drops, don’t switch to teaspoons in the middle of the recipe unless it is written that way. I hope this was helpful.

So that means if you know you need 1 oz of fragrance oil for your wax and you want to use 2 scents such as for this one: Apple Vanilla Equal parts: Apple and Vanilla you would do 1/2 an ounce of each. Think of part like a fraction. There are 2 fragrances there so think of the fraction like: 1/2 + 1/2 = 2/2 =1 because there are two parts. I hope that helps a bit. 🙂

if you are mixing in a 4 oz bottle or any size bottle and the recipe calls for 1 part…it would equal 1 ounce. so…1 part vanilla 1 part cranberry 1 part lemon 1 part orange would equal 4 ounces…and so on

Just when you think you’ve seen it all 😐

• Katy says:

saying part leaves it open for interpretation. Its intentional. If you need 3tbs of scent for your project and lets say its an equal mix of Honey lavender and Vanilla then it would be 1tbs of each. 1 part in this case would be 33.3% of the total mixture. So if you needed to make a larger amount then you could calculate out one part as 33%. if your scent contained 4 ingredients in equal parts the each would calculate out 25% of the total amount. In a case where you have 1 part cinnamon 2 parts apple then 66% of the total amount would be apple fragrance and 33.3% would be cinnamon.

Parts can mean anything. If a recipe asks for 1 part, and 2 parts, this could mean cups, ounces, grams, whatever you are using. For example, 1 ounce of Lavender ( which is 1 part) and 2 ounces rose (2parts). 2 parts is double of 1 part. Another example, humming bird food usually is 4 parts sugar and 1 part water, using cups, would be 4 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. I hope this is understandable and helps out.

4. Judy Richie says:

What oils can be mixed to get tropical fantasy that was discontinued at some companies?

5. Dee says:

Rose, Lavendar, and Vanilla – equal parts of orange and pomegranate

I’m confused with the above ingredients. Is this a typo? Is it supposed to be equal parts of rose, lavender and vanilla?

Thank you!
