  1. Life is good right now w/ 464 for me, but I do wonder about trying a bit of c3, just to compare. People who have tried both, does the c3 give a better, firmer looking top? In general, is it a firmer wax? I don't love the "cottage cheese" tops after burning that 464 gives. Any difference in hot or cold throw
  2. Is it time yet to co-op any of my dupes?

    How much for sniffies?
  3. Does anyone have one? SOS has a few fo w/ these notes, but they got absolutely terrible reviews. I'd love to make an "old books/library" candle. Any ideas for blends on this one? Thanks so much!

  5. Candle Science White Birch - anything similar?

    Any idea when this will be back in stock? We sold out of it today at our Farmer's Market and have many more coming up. Crazy good Fragrance oil!
  6. Jars worked out perfectly, and I'm kind of in love with the fragrances I ordered. DANG! Another FO supplier! So much for "limiting" them to 5. Got the famed Iced Lemon Biscotti, Amaretto Tiramisu (oh my deliciousness!), and Lavender, Rosemary, and Sage. All delightful--can't wait to get them in wax.
  7. Or Snow Wonder (sounds like "It's no wonder" said quickly!)

  9. You are all awesome. Fillmore for the win!!!!!! While I'll be ordering from there, anyone have any good fo suggestions from there?
  10. Sadly, the CS lid doesn't fit. Looked at The Cary Co. Also pretty pricey per jar, but I could possible drive there (family in that area) and save on shipping. Thinking Fillmore has an option that's pretty close, too.
  11. ? about wholesale pricing

    Thanks everyone. Your advice has been stellar and so helpful. We just got our 2nd wholesale order! We can hardly keep up--what a great "problem" to have! Time will tell if our wholesale prices were enough for us to make a decent profit, I guess.
  12. Thanks Moonshine. Sadly, the price on these would raise our cost per candle a ton (they are almost double the cost of the Aztec jar) and it doesn't have the lid. But it's an option, I guess.
  13. Hi all! So in the last week we got 3 HUGE orders (2 new wholesale accounts, 1 for a corporate party)! GREAT NEWS! Our stock is nearly depleted and we're making candles like crazy. Just went onto Aztec to order more jars (8 oz straight-sided flint jar) and they are out of stock until 2018, and looking for a new supplier for this jar. HELP! I would hate to have to re-test--switch jars--we won't have time to do that and fill our orders. The reasons we love the Aztec jars are the low price, the continuous thread lid lines, and the matching lid (has a much nicer look than a lug/jelly jar lid). Can anyone help me find a similar jar and similar lid? I have our jar pictured below.
  14. My wick stickers are not sticking! I use the wick centering tool (great gadget, btw) but when I add a wick centerer they come right out. I usually get them from Aztec, I think, but often get them from wherever I"m ordering. Anyone else have this issue?
  15. ? about wholesale pricing

    Thanks everyone for the great advice. I did raise our wholesale price a bit (2.5x my cost) and landed my first wholesale account! Super excited--so many candles to make, so much more to learn!
