Candle Making Calculator

Sometimes doing the math can be difficult when trying to calculate how much wax and fragrance oil you need to fill your containers. The good news is that we can help.

You can use our candle-making calculator to help you calculate how much wax and fragrance oil you need to fill your candle containers, no matter what size they are.

Our calculator not only helps you calculate how much material you need for your melting pot, but it gives you the measurements in three different units of measurement.

Candle Making Calculator

Our candle making calculator comes with a few simple inputs.

Calculator Inputs

  • Container Size
  • Number Of Containers
  • Fragrance Load %

Additionally, our candle making calculator has two outputs, given to you in three different units.

Calculator Outputs

  • Weight in pounds
  • Weight in ounces
  • Weight in grams

You only need to use one of the units of measurement. If you want to measure out your candle making materials using ounces. Then measure out the number given to you for wax in ounces, and measure out the number given to you for fragrance oil in ounces that is just below it.

However, you may find it easier to just use the measurements in grams if you are making smaller batches of candles.

Here is an example of how it works:

In the above example, if you enter in that you want to make 4 – 8 oz candles with a fragrance load of 8% then you click “Calculate” and get your measurements at the bottom.

For this example, your measurements for those 4 – 8 oz candles would be 23.55 oz of wax and 2.05 oz of fragrance oil.

If you choose to measure in grams your measurements are 667.69 g of wax and 58.06 g of fragrance oil.

It’s that easy.

When you use this calculator you have to do ZERO math. Just put in your numbers in the top and get your measurements from the bottom, in the unit of measurement of your choice.
