    I have been making pure soy candles, soy blend melts, cold process soap, and bath and body products since June 2007 and I love it completely!

    I really love fresh scents and lots of mint, herbal fragrances. Not a huge fan of bakery or a lot of patchouli!

  1. Hi!  I saw in a different thread that you were looking for a fragrance oil to make a Butterbeer candle.  Did you ever find one?  I am struggling to find one, too.  Please let me know.  Thanks!  :)

  2. My hands down absolute favorite vanilla of all time is Bittercreek's Vanilla Bean Supreme! It is the strongest and best vanilla I have ever had and is a best seller. I pour pure soy candles and do para soy melts. Always a winner!
  3. No. Kathy's are the only ones I have every used. I have been so happy with the quality that I did not feel the need to try anyone else's!
  4. Hi all! I have had a special request for Butterbeer, the Harry Potter drink. I see that The Candlemaker's Store is the only one that carries that fo. Are there any other great fragrance oils that anyone can recommend from The Candlemaker's Store? Don't want to just order one bottle of Butterbeer, shipping is pretty high! Thanks so much!
  5. Hi all! Happy Easter! I have always used and have never had an issue with Indiana Candle Supplies! Her clams are great and at a great price. I think they average out to be about .31each. I use parasoy and I pour at about 152 with no issues whatsoever! Kathy is very fast and efficient and she has wonderful fragrance oils too! So if you are looking for a new clamshell supplier, I completely recommend Indiana Candle Supplies!!
  6. Hi everyone! My next adventure is bubble scoops. I have my recipe, ingredients etc. I want to package in a trio but wanted to know if there was a best selection for hanging bags for polypropylene?? Don't want to lose the scent! All thoughts are certainly welcome! Thanks!
  7. I don't know the instructions for you type of wax but typically for the type of pure soy wax I use it is 1oz per pound of wax for fragrance oil and 1/2 oz per pound of wax for essential oils. I agree with Trapp in that a picture of the jar would really help!
  8. Trapp you are a Saint!!!! God bless you for tolerating all that! I can take a lot but I don't know if I could that much! Lol!
  9. Well it seemed like it was a popular place and they have been in business for about 25 years and they pride themselves on helping handmade vendors. I will just have to see what information they send me and make a decision from there. Thanks iansmommaya!
  10. Hi everyone! Wow! Thanks for all of the wonderful insights!! Great thoughts! This is just something that I ran across as I was trolling for craft mall booth rentals. I do one locally and I love it and it has really paid off for me. Remote stock is something I have never done but was just curious. You all remind me of all of the pitfalls that can happen and do happen! This is a large craft and antique mall in Waco, Texas. I love the idea of a secret shopper but I don't know a soul in Texas! I only contacted them for more information but I am really thinking this is a road I don't want to go down! I initially was hesitant and you have reminded me that I am also picky about my displays and I go to my booth at the local craft mall at least once a week to keep tabs on the stock and straighten displays. I certainly would not have this option as I live in Central Illinois! This is why I love this board! I can get all kinds of experiences and advice! Trapp great to see you too! I have not heard from them yet but I really think I have already decided to stick with my local craft malls in driving distance! Thanks so much everyone!!!!
  11. Hi everyone! Does anyone have any experience with a remote stocking booth? This means that you ship items to be stocked in a booth? I live in Illinois and the craft mall is in Texas. It is just the monthly fee and the remote stocking is free. Any experience? If so was it positive? Just something I am considering! Thanks so much!
  12. I truly love NG Bayberry and it works fantastic in pure soy and soy blend!
  13. Hi! Has anyone made a soy candle in a beer can?? I use pure soy and cd wicks but I was just looking for some tips. I believe the beer cans could be anywhere from a 12 oz to a 24 oz? Any info and suggestions is greatly appreciated. A friend of mine is the manager of a restaurant with a distillery and she would love some "beer can candles". Thanks so much!
  14. Midnight at the Oasis!! This was the first thing I thought of!!
