What is a Sandalwood Scented Candle?

In the massive universe of scents and fragrances, sandalwood is often forgotten and not valued enough. It is a sophisticated scent which complements perfectly with various other scents.

It’s smell can be best described as a ‘woodsy scent’, which makes it seem like you’ve been transported in the middle of a forest on a sunny morning! It can’t get better than this, right?

So, what exactly is Sandalwood?

Sandalwood is a category of tree that falls under the genus Santalum. These trees take a very long time to grow. Finally, the wood that these trees produce are heavy, yellow, fine-grained aromatic wood. And they can retain their scent for decades.

Sandalwood is one of the most expensive woods in the world! Understandably so because sandalwood trees can take up to 15 years or more to be fully grown after they are harvested. Fun fact: the older the tree, the higher the quantity and quality of the oil it produces!

Sandalwood trees originated from Southern India. However, the plant has spread to other countries such as Indonesia, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Hawaii, and Australia.

Finally, sandalwood scented candles are when the sandalwood scent is added to any type of candle wax!

How are Sandalwood Candles Made?

We, at Blue Hour Candle, use 100 percent soy wax to manufacture candles. Each candle is made separately with immense attention to detail and care, so as to provide our customers with the best quality products.

Using pure soy wax is Blue Hour Candle’s way to ensure that our customers’ health is not impacted in any aspect.

Soy wax is a clean burning candle so when you light the candle you will not be inhaling any toxins or petro-carbon soot, as is the case with paraffin wax candles.

Why Does Soy Wax Make Sandalwood Scented Candles Smell Better?

One of the many magics of soy wax candles is that they carry scent the best. No other candle wax can compare to the way soy wax candles carry fragrances!

This mainly has to do with the fact that soy wax candles are slow burning candles. Consequently, a pool of liquid wax forms around the wick.

From this liquid wax, the fragrance slowly emits into the surroundings! This gradual emission of fragrance makes the sandalwood scent more pronounced!

Additional Information

Process of Making Sandalwood Scented Candles

To make sandalwood candles, we begin by melting soy wax flakes in a pitcher and we continuously stir the wax with a wooden spoon to ensure that it melts completely and there are no lumps left in the mixture.

Once the wax is fully melted, we remove it from the heat source. At this step, we add colouring to get the desired colour. However, this step is optional and we skip it for some of our products.

Then, we measure the temperature of the wax. As soon as the temperature of the wax is lower than the flashpoint of fragrance oils, we add the fragrance. In this case, sandalwood. The measurement for fragrance oils varies with each case, depending on the total amount of wax.

After adding the sandalwood scent, we stir the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes to ensure that the fragrance is incorporated properly.

Then, finally, our talented team at Blue Hour Candle places a wick in each glass jar. The wick is attached to the bottom of the glass jar using a wick tab of premium quality to ensure that the wick is carefully secured. Let the wick be for a bit so the wick tab is hardened.

The last step involves pouring the melted wax into the glass jar. We at Blue Hour Candle hand pour waxes into all our candles! We then let the wax cool down for at least 30 minutes. Then, we end the process by trimming the wick so that it is only ¼ inch above the surface.

And that is how we prepare our sandalwood candles!

Why are Sandalwood Scented Candles Popular?

The real question is why wouldn’t someone like sandalwood scented candles? They’ve got the perfect smell! If you want to light multiple candles, sandalwood candles are likely to compliment well with them as well.

Is there even anyone out there who thinks that sandalwood scented candles aren’t the best? I bet there isn’t!

Sandalwood candles allow you to experience warmth, summers and freshness all together- in one pack! Who wouldn’t love that?

It should be absolutely no surprise that sandalwood candles are so popular!

What are the Notes in a Sandalwood Scented Candle?

While Sandalwood is basically a tree and has a ‘woodsy scent’, there are more notes to it! Sandalwood has a unique overall note of sorts, which can not be narrowed down to one or two scents. It is exotic, creamy, sweet, smooth and warm, all at once!

Once you smell sandalwood’s scent regularly, you will instantly recognise it!

Since sandalwood has such a varied and versatile smell it is found in a range of perfumes, candles, colognes and soaps.

Sometimes the sandalwood fragrance is used on its own and other times it is added in a combination with other fragrances.

Here are some scents that go extremely well with sandalwood:

  • Orange blossom
  • Lavender
  • Geranium
  • Ylang-ylang

    This is the best scent when you want to feel like you’re right outside with nature. A very woodsy feel. Burn time was on the lower side tho.

    As a huge consumer of candles this has to be one of the most unique candles I have come across. The aesthetic is so cute and I love it for the décor as well.

    love to cook and oftentimes that means the kitchen has some residual food smells. I bought this candle to help take out any odors left behind, but I love it so much I just light it all the time now. It has almost a cologne like smell.

    I love candles, but have been disappointed time and time again with other candles that I’ve purchased … for one reason or another. I have finally found a company that I actually like just wish it lasted longer!
