    Coco/soy candles

    @Trappeur any insight? I can't remember but I thought you had posted something about experimenting with coconut. Maybe I am mistaken..

    Coco/soy candles

    Thanks for the response @Linda P! I actually just tested a burn with the base (coco2) yesterday without adding more soy to it. I used 6% in a 4oz amber jar. I let it sit 48 hours, as I've read that's what some people on here recommended. The CT was awesome, HT, not so much at all. Did not even fill up my 4x10 bathroom. I'm not sure if it was the wax, as I have read that people with this ratio see awesome HT. It could be because I was unfamiliar with the wax and let it get to 220 while melting. I added at 200 and poured at 185. Not sure if that effected it or not, but the no HT is disappointing for sure. I thought the coconut would throw more than the straight 464 I was using previously!
  3. Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. I have been working away from soy a bit and going to a coconut base. I know there are a ton of people on here experimenting with other waxes than soy. I just wanted to get an idea of what your findings are if you are willing to share! The other day I ordered the Naturewax Coconut 2..coconut 98%, soy 2%. -Obviously, they are a bit soft after they set for a day. What's the type of wax and % are you using to harden the wax. Is it affecting your HT? -I used eco 4,6,8 and some very small wooden wicks to test. Seeing as coconut takes a couple days to set, I have not burned them yet. What wicks have you found work with your cocosoy blends? -My jars I have them in are the 4oz and 9oz amber jars from Fillmore Containers As a sidenote- I ordered the coffeehouse and toasted marshmellow FO from RE and hollllllllllly moley am I excited to use those, maybe even blend them????
  4. @lenarenee following this thread and seeing how you made out with the coco83 and the wooden wicks. I'm about 2 seconds away from buying the coco83. What wood wick worked best? Have you tried the eco's and how did they perform? I believe the ratio is 98%coconut/2% soy- is there any parafin addatives in there do you know? How does it hold up to heat, I would assume since it's 98%coco it would melt in heat and cause slumping? Let me know what your findings are!!
