For the scented wax melts
You can dose your scented wax melts between 5 and 10g on 100 grams.

Natural mica powder for colouring your creations or cosmetics
Micas are mainly suitable for colouring scented fondants, home cosmetics and of course soaps.
However, we do not recommend the use of micas in candles. Indeed, mica is a colouring powder which risks saturating the wick and preventing its proper functioning.
