1 Fragrances that are indicated as gel compatible are compatible with Penreco Versagel for making gel candles. It is important to realize, though, that many of our fragrances may contain just a slight amount of a "polar" ingredient which would cause them to be listed as not gel safe when in reality, the fragrance may mix into the gel just fine. The bottom line is test, test, test for yourself to find out which ones work for you.
2 Flash point information is very important when using these fragrances in gel candles. Most gel manufacturers recommend using a NON-POLAR fragrance with at least a 170° flash point. The flash point is the temperature at which a fragrance can ignite when it comes in contact with an open flame or a spark. It is still perfectly safe to heat a fragrance higher than its flash point provided there is no open flame, spark, or other ignition source.
