    Candles
  1. I realized after I posted in here that you had probably already seen his post. Maybe it'll be helpful to someone who hasn't seen it yet though.
  2. Favorite Aztec FO?

    What are your favorite scents from Aztec for candle making?
  3. @Brad Ford posted this article in another thread: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-basf-forcemajeure-aroma/basf-declares-force-majeure-for-certain-aroma-ingredients-idUSKBN1D21AB Hopefully this is something that will be fixed quickly.
  4. Favorite FO from Fillmore?

    I wonder if the coffee could be improved by mixing it with something else?
  5. Favorite FO from Fillmore?

    Has anyone tried the coffee or creamy chai latte?
  6. I'm thinking of placing an order for fragrance oils from Fillmore Container... What are your least/most favorite from them? I'm not that picky about scents so all suggestions are welcome.
  7. Essential oils vs. Fragrance oils

    I think all cats are pretty amazing. I joke with my husband all the time that if he wasn't around, I'd just be a cat lady. haha! I hope I can have my sweet fur baby for at least that long! She's around 10 now. She seems to like the lavender but I don't put a lot in the diffuser so I'm sure it's pretty diluted.
  8. Essential oils vs. Fragrance oils

    WOW... 18 1/2 years!! That's amazing! That sounds like an awful/scary experience to go through. I would've been terrified. My cat doesn't seem to be bothered by the EO's in my diffuser but dust makes her sneeze a lot. If I run just lavender in my diffuser she will often go sit in the same room near the diffuser. When I made the candles with FO, she was in a separate room, and I only made the one batch with 1lb of wax. So I don't think I was using it long enough to really fill the house with the scent. She didn't seem bothered with it but I will definitely take more precautions going forward.
  9. Essential oils vs. Fragrance oils

    YES!! Last year I ordered several FO's for the first time and I really didn't take any kind of precautions with them. I didn't know I needed to. I didn't wear gloves... no respirator... didn't open the windows. I had a horrible headache for hours and felt really dizzy. It was awful. I almost didn't want to use them ever again. I think that situation made me really want to look into them more. That said, I obviously didn't take the necessary precautions as I should have. I do wish they labeled the bottles with how to handle them properly.
  10. Essential oils vs. Fragrance oils

    Yeah, they are definitely way too expensive to waste. My favorite company is Simplers Botanicals. They're definitely on the pricier side but out of all the brands I've tried... these smell the best. They smell so pure. I will definitely get a respirator though and wear gloves. I was going through a lot of lavender and still am... but rose geranium is probably my new favorite. I can't get enough of it! haha. We don't have kids yet but I will definitely be extra cautious using these things around them when we do. Ideally, I'd like to have a space to make products outside our home but we just aren't at that point yet. So I'll have to make do and just be very careful in the meantime. Also, I had no idea there was coffee EO!! Where have I been??? I need to get some ASAP! haha.
  11. Hi From Canada

    Oh wow... 6 months! lol Poor guy! I don't think my husband would ever agree to live anywhere else, even if I said I was going without him. hahaha. I'm sure I'll adjust to the winter and we will find things to do to make it more bearable. I'd love to try cross country skiing, although I've heard it's pretty challenging. lol... that's funny. I've been to a Titans game and a Vols game. Once was good enough for me... I'm not super into football but I sure had to hear about it constantly in TN. Most people there are obsessed with the Vols. There is orange everywhere. It was worse when I lived in Knoxville (home of the vols) for awhile. Game day traffic there was the worst!
  12. Hi From Canada

    Yeah, so far it hasn't actually been too bad. lol The first time I visited Toronto was in February so sadly, I know it gets much worse than this. He actually bought me a Canada Goose jacket for Christmas several years ago to entice me to move here... but it took me a long time to make the move. haha. I do need some ear muffs and a nice warm hat though. But yes, the plan is to sit around and make candles all winter. Are you a Titans fan?
  13. Hi From Canada

    I looked into shipping from some of the suppliers I've seen in the U.S. and the shipping is brutal!! One place was $41. And I'm sure there are extra costs for it to go through customs and all that. I'm from Tennessee (I don't fit any stereotypes of the south though...lol) - born and raised, so while I didn't experience hot weather year round... our winters were very mild in comparison. We went out the other night for his work's christmas party, I had to wear a dress without leggings and told him I'd head back outside again once it was summer. Once it gets below freezing... I'm for sure not going out anywhere. lol
  14. Hi From Canada

    @Gary in Canada Thank you for all the great info, Gary! I will definitely check out those places! I'm trying to make it feel like home here as best as I can. It's going to be an adjustment for a bit (can we say cold??!) but I think my hubby is worth it.
