  2. Yes definitely do lmk what some of your favorites for Fall are. The Orange Sugar & Shea is very nice. It's not an in your face orange it's light but has such nice undertones of greens and florals in it. To my nose it almost smells more tangerine smelling. But certainly doesn't disappoint. The Candy Crush is nice! If your looking for an in your face STRONG candy smell this is the one! It is heavy banana followed by kiwi and other fruity notes. It does well for sure. Do do you have any suggestions for Fall scents from WSP, Bittercreek or JS? Please do share if so. I need a handful of new Fall scents.

    It can be Fall or Winter. I will be placing an order with JS soon. I truly love 90% of what I have tried from them.

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    I went and pulled up the spec sheet for the GE 100% silicone II Window and Door Sealant (The link is below), and it's showing 400F as the maximum temperature for elasticity which is to say that's the maximum that they guarantee it maintaining structural integrity. So, yeah... If your roof gets up to 400F your skylight will stay sealed, the shingles and roof will have slid off, but that skylight will be water tight!----- Dammit! Red Permatex RTV's max is 600F continuous. Permatex's claim to fame is that it is supposed to stand up to hot fuel and oil as well as high temperatures. For engines it's required, for candles, meh... Kinda like bringing a Howitzer to a turkey shoot. So <$5 for 3 oz. or $4.47 for 10 oz... If it was me, I'd be willing to try it out to see if it was as good as the permatex at least... I'd be willing to bet the clear silicone could withstand the wick burning right down to the tab without any deterioration. The clear would look better at the bottom of a glass jar too, (Y'know if you took the sticker off and actually looked at the bottom of the jar) https://www.builditsolar.com/References/Caulks/Silicone II Window &amp; Door - TDS[1].pdf

    Mason jar cracked?

    I think that is just a flaw in the glass.... Trappeur
  7. I'm sorry you haven't found a good replacement yet. I hope you do. I will say I didn't care for the oatmeal cookie that FB carries but you might. I also hated the one from BCS. They're closed now and I'm not sure if BCN carries it or not but it stunk so bad to me and was SO strong! Let us know if you find a good one. I'm always looking for a good cookie scent.

    Aroma bead ornies

    They have some good oils too. What scents were you using from Lone Star and the other company? Maybe it was the scent itself. Some are just stronger than others. I hope you have good luck with NG's beads. I baked some of theirs the other day and they seem to be great so far.
  9. I love several of their oils. Some of my favorites are: Toasted Marshmallow ,Pumpkin Pie Spice Caramel Pretzel Bar Pumpkin Bread Baked Apple HI Barbershop 1920's Birthday Cake Glazed Donut Grandma's cupboard Key Lime Red Lipstick Strawberry Musk Rustic Lodge Santa's Whiskers Southern Pecan pie Spiced Pumpkin Latte Sweet Potato Spice Tis The Season Vanilla Butter Fudge Vanilla Lace Warm Vanilla Nutmeg Welcome Home Are they having a sale soon @Darbla

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    Thanks executor of bad ideas for the ideas 😂 Red gasket sealer in my parts is under 5.00 a tube and lasts a really long time- I didn’t think that was expensive 🤔 so this silicone caulking....is that a permanent stick and okay for high temps? I’m not versed in these type of things and went with it based off many on here using it successfully

    Canwax

    Im sorry lol. 20 bucks is to much. I just checked them all out, its a few im interestedin but they are $15 and imo,thats not clearance priced
  12. Oh man, I love so many of their scents. Baked Apple HI type, Spiced Pumpkin Latte, Coffee House, Badedas (although I haven't been able to sell a lot of it - I need a good name for it), Golden Sands (I LOVE the scent, but the fo turned black-ish purple on me after about 6 months, very weird). Oak Barrel Cider is nice. Also Sparkling Pomegranate Prosecco. I could probably go on and on!

    Ok... (YIKES!) Wow! Yeah, um, High temp Permatex will work fine, but it's EXPENSIVE (at least compared to other alternatives). And now for the disclaimer: I DON'T MAKE CANDLES, so you are forewarned. I DO make a LOT of other things that have high temps and (ok, I'll just say it: I use non "standard" stuff in fixing cars all the time.) It's the knowing WHERE and WHEN you can use a non standard part or adhesive is really key but knowing WHAT the materials are made of... Oh; that is the real magic. I really like to approach things like this as though I were a monster sized factory making product "X". How would they go about sticking their tabs into the jars? Why are THEY able to do this and I'm NOT? Unless it's a synthesizing materials situation, I find that 99% of the time I can do it almost exactly the same way that the factory does it. I can just about guarantee that "BIG CANDLE INC" is using a solvent based adhesive to stick wick tabs down (if they stick them down at all). If you really want a Type 2 Silicone adhesive to stick your candle wicks down just get a squeeze tube (or get a caulking gun tube if you're in mass production) of clear Type II 100% silicone caulking. It'll work FINE, and a tube will last you probably 10 lifetimes. (You will have to keep it properly sealed and all.) Just out of curiosity, why aren't all y'all using a contact cement like "Weldwood"? Yeah, it's got all kinds of nasty solvents in it and junk, but we're talking about a dot in the bottom of the jar and a dot on the tab, not bathing in the stuff like me. I'd do all the jar bottoms in one shot and then do all of the tabs, by the time you are done with the last tab everything will be ready to stick together and BOOM! Yer done. You could leave them in the sun for a day to gas off if you are concerned about the smell. (Small disclaimer: rubber can deteriorate over time when used exclusively with petroleum based products *e.g.: paraffin.*) Anyway, just thought I'd offer those alternatives if it could help. Also, if you are going to stay with the Permatex, ( or any of the above suggestions) go with Walmart. I hate them as much as any human, but they DO have the best prices I've ever seen on adhesives. HTH! Cheers, Sponiebr The Executor of Bad Ideas and Sundry Services
  15. Rustic Escentuals that I sell quite a bit of: Amish Quilt, Spiced Pumpkin Latte, Christmas Bliss. Also like Celtic Moonspice, & Warm Vanilla Nutmeg GoldieMN
  16. I'm going to order that Love's Baby Soft someone put me onto a few weeks ago, but what else is good from there?

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    Also, the melt pan has an adapter to use a glue stick. I know my big box has super high temp glue sticks

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    i threw away my package (grumble grumble). Pretty sure it is this one https://www.menards.com/main/paint/adhesives-glue-tape/glue/glue-guns-glue-sticks/surebonder-reg-skillet-pan-glue-1-lb/b-2001/p-1444430629385-c-14002.htm?tid=5031253741023570089&ipos=11 The pellets are pretty white, not tan though as in the description. Softening point is about 200*F High strength/superior bonding/minimal stringing For use in Surebonder® #805 glue skillet 1 pound bag Ideal for artificial floral arrangements and various craft projects Softening Point: 176°F to 212°F Color: light tan I’d give them a good long, hard test in your containers before selling. These definitely are sturdier thank typical glue sticks, but nowhere near permatex tough. I use in tins and am fully satisfied with it for that container. If a wick wanders a bit in a tin it’s not as much of a deal breaker as in glass. As an aside, permatex red gasket sealer is available in most auto parts sections of big box stores. Great stuff for when it absolutely positive y has to stay stuck.

    Also can I use this for glass and ceramic vessels? I would like the client to be able to remove the wick and tab after candle has burned completely and utilize the jar for something else. Thanks for your help!

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    do you use the Surebonder skillet/pan blue in pellets? I looked into it and it does not say it's high temperature. Just want to make sure. this is the greatest suggestion! Thank you!!

    Experience with Indigo Fragrances???

    Pleas let me know how you like them. I wanted to order a scent from there too, but was a bit hesitant.

    Wick Migration when wax is low

    Thank you everyone for your feedback!! I decided to try out the gasket sealant. I bought permanex copper high temp. It’s super tacky and can withstand up to 700 degrees. I did some tests and...PROBLEM SOLVED! I think you can only buy this stuff at auto stores like autozone or pep boys. The didn’t carry it at Lowe’s or Home Depot. Thanks again ❤️

    Mason jar cracked?

    What temp do you recommend pouring? I've heard so many different opinions on the matter.

    Weird reaction with Palm

    That's weird. For palm to get hot enough to melt you would not only get wax on your finger but it would be at the very least warm to hot to the touch.

    Tins vs. Glass Jars

    Impossible question. How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood. simple answer, the smallest size you can for the type of wax you use. In my case, the current lot number of C3 soy open in my shop, eco 6 - eco12 or eco14 in extreme cases depending on scent. You have to test each and every fragrance, color, change from start to finish. Different batches of soy wax may need different sizes. Last year’s soy cd10-cd16. 4360 in my dragons blood I got a nice burn with paper wicks with the size starting with P44.
