  1. I've been able to get a good hot throw from most of my fragrance oils using new 464 in pint canning jars and CD or Premier wicks. Still having problems with Rustic Escentuals Apple Pumpkin Strudel. Are any of you using this fragrance in this jar and getting good results? If so, would you mind sharing what wick you are using?

    hello! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    @Sponiebr Soot on walls from candles, not rare at all. I have streaks of black on my light green slanted ceiling where I burned paraffin candles on the counter. When I repainted my kitchen, the wall where I burned a candle all the time was a lot darker than any other area of the kitchen. Insurance agent says insurance companies deal with soot claims from burning candles all the time. GoldieMN

    Main reason my customers want soy is the soot paraffin candles leave on their walls. GoldieMN

    @Moonstar That is interesting. . .adding something to harden the wax. I have quite a bit of Ecosoya's PB. I wonder if that would make a difference. Oh God, MORE TESTING!!! GoldieMN

    Welcome! Looking forward to your joining in the fun, hearing about your experiences with candlemaking. Goldie
  10. I experienced #4, yesterday. Thought it was weird but deleted the previous answer and replied. I wonder if this all doesn't have to do with the other popup message that came up asking us to "agree" to the rules. And that there is a major problem with the site. Goldie

    Hello from Virginia

    Welcome, Storybook! All kinds of help and fun on this site. Biggest challenge for many of us is to avoid those sample fragrance oil sales! lol Best of luck with your renewed interest in candles and soaps. GoldieMN
