    Is there any chemical I can add to soybean wax to increase fragrance oil?
    I by no means know anything about chemistry and do not feel like blowing up my kitchen playing around with different acids, compounds, formulas. I am trying to find a chemical that I can purchase to add to soybean wax to bring out/that will release the fragrance oil I put into the wax. I don't care so much about the color enhancer additive, as much as I want to find a chemical that can mix with soy wax and be able to release fragrance when wick is lit. I know there is something that can help in achieving this goal, but on the same token, as I mentioned above, I don't want to blow my house up while experimenting.

    I don't know, and forgive me if this is unwanted, but aren't you shooting yourself in the foot?
    No one wants chemicals in their soy and natural oil candles. They even want to know that there is no lead in the wick!
    A best selling candle will emphasize that they use a lot of fragrance instead.
    You could even start a trend by saying how much, volume/volume.
    Fragrances, to my mind, are released by oil. Their own, the oil in the soy, whatever!

    I know how frustrated I was recently, when buying almond paste. It's generally part sugar and maybe other ingredients, but they don't say how much!
    Today's buyer wants to know EVERYTHING.

    Aromatic additives are common. Vanilla, cinnamon, sandalwood and others. Google "aromatic candle additives". I know of no " scent" enhancer.
