  1. @franu61, I would have never dreamed of combining lavender and pumpkin. Very interesting. Orange Gingerbread sounds good. I have blended a little. Once I had some gingerbread I wasn't crazy about and blended it with pumpkin. I have some Pecans & Pralines from Peak. Never cared for it, not sweet enough. Last Christmas I blended it with Sugar Cookie and vanilla I think, named it Nutcracker and it sold like crazy. Silly me didn't save the recipe but I'm sure it was just some vanilla and/or sugar cookie..

  2. Have to agree with ErronB. This takes a long time to master, there are many variables. I don’t like 6006 myself. As others have said pick a straight side jar, or glass no wider than three inches for practice. If 6006 is a stinker, then get samples of c3 and problend both at Flaming Candle to try. C3 has its own set of peculiarities FYI before you jump in. Sample packs of different types of wicks are good. Each wax like certain wicks with fragrance. Buy fragrance from reputable candle companies - not every fo is good in your wax. Some aren’t strong when burning, some are dang hard to wick. Keep your test candles 6-8 per cent with fo. Adding more fo does not make a better candle and the fragrance can leach out the top of your candle. Pick four fragrances you love for testing. It has to be simple, because it complicated. Once you understand different waxes, how they burn and throw and the qualities of wicks, you will be able to ,ale quality candles. You are not failing, learning. By the way, hahah I am waist deep in waxes. I have many many types in my workroom.

  3. The problem is, if you don't have the knowledge of how to wick high melt point waxes in the first place you're literally just throwing yourself in the deep end, parasoy waxes like Problend 600 aren't so tough to burn and are easier to learn with if you want something similar to 6006. Good luck with your wicking journey, I remember going through it, it's tough.

  4. Thank goodness you got them!!! 😊 Too bad it took so long though, always worse when you need something but don't have many choices as to how to get it. I've been there...
