A few months ago I decided to try coconut wax. I really love how easy it is to use and the way it looks. After reading up on it I was prepared to have a hard time wicking it but it is way more difficult than I expected.
Basically my current issue is that either I have a good hot throw & the melt pool looks good but the flame is too tall and I start getting black smoke -OR- I size down one more from that and the flame looks good but the hot throw always seem to be significantly weaker.
I want to eliminate any black smoke and still have a good hot throw, but I don't know if thats even possible. I'm still new at this (only been making candles for a year) so maybe I am doing something wrong.
for additional information:
I'm using 7.75oz tumbler from specialty bottle
8% fragrance oil
Wax is my own blend but primarily made up of Northwood Coconut wax
(My results were worse when I used straight coconut wax, and seem to be better with the blend I am using, so I wouldn't say thats the entire issue)
