  1. I agree! I wish I knew how to get them though. I went on BCN website and 10 pounds of their beads are almost double what PP4F charges for theirs and that's before shipping! WOW! I don't remember them being that much better if any. I just remember them being the smaller beads that soaked up faster than the ones from Cajun and Aztec. The ones I got from AAA are larger too but they did soak up the oil I used in them but it just took longer. I did an experiment with them and the ones from Plastic and theirs soaked up days faster. Haven't baked them yet though to see which has the stronger scent. Do you find the ones from Cajun are bigger and take longer to soak up? I think the ones from NG are the smaller ones but theirs are more expensive too. I think I'm going to go ahead and order some from LS like I've been meaning to do and see how theirs work. They don't charge an arm and a leg for theirs and I would get them sooner. So far though the ones from PP4F are working out ok. I sure wish Aroma beads online would go back to their old beads.
  2. She has some good oils and some duds like everyone else. I like a lot of her oils but there are some that I thought were weak too. I don't like any of her pumpkin scents and couldn't get her pumpkin pie spice to throw much at all and yet it gets good reviews. I can send you some samples if you'd like!
  3. I am so sorry you're having such trouble out of your beads. It can be so frustrating and expensive for sure. I think I"m going to post this question in my group on FB to see if any of my customers are having thing happen that I don't know about. I will tell you that in my experience with Cajun beads you will have to let them soak longer and bake a little longer. Theirs, Aztec's and the ones from AAA seem to be bigger than the rest of the ones I've bought. They do bake up nice in my opinion though. I just can't bake the two types of beads at the same time because of the difference in how they need to bake. If you want smaller beads that soak faster then NG and BCN have excellent beads. They are higher but will be worth the cost in the long run. Wishing you much success and keep us posted on how things are going!
  4. Please let us know on here what you come up with. I hope it's something that's an easy fix.
  5. As far as I know I've only had one customer that's had one melt in their car while she was at the lake. How full do you fill your cutters? I've bought beads from Buy It Ship It, Cajun, NG, Aztec and PP4F and I've not had that happen. I'm in Southeast Texas so I would think we would have temps hot enough to do that. I sure hope something isn't going on. I fill mine pretty much full and make sure I have a good amount from the top to the hole in case it does get too hot. I hope you find out what's causing that and I hope it doesn't happen to you again. It is defiantly disheartening to have stuff like that happen.
  6. Cinnamon Crunch Cake Coffee Ice Cream Strawberry White Cake-I like the one from ICS almost as much as this one though. Hazelnut Marshmallow Fluff Snicker Doodle- forgot to put that one on the list. I like it better than any snicker doodle cookie that I've smelled. It's more of a maple cookie scent to me. I think it's stronger than her Butter Pecan Sandies but both are good. They're very similar. Her marshmallow fireside smells the same as any I've smelled as well as her buttery gingerbread and serendipity and you could probably get those cheaper from ICS or FB. Fluffy Towels is good for a clean scent with a touch of something else that I can't quite put my finger on.
  7. There are several of JS oils that I love. I love her Cinnamon Crunch Cake, Absolutely Fabulous Cake Blue Cotton Candy Butter Pecan Sandies Buttercream sugar cookie-same as ICS frosted sugar cookie Buttery Gingerbread-same as ICS BGB Caramel Cinnamon Latte Cherry Slushie Coffee Ice Cream Cornbread Muffins Fluffy Towels Hazelnut Marshmallow Fluff Jelly Glazed Donut Jingle Bells Lavender Milk Marshmallow Fireside Orange caramel crumble-smells the same as ICS orange caramel cake Peppermint Meringue Pink sugar Santa Baby Serendipity -smells the same as ICS Strawberry White Cake Vanilla Patchouli There are a few more but I think she's discontinued some that I have.
  8. I agree! It has a richness to it that most don't.
  9. Me too! I hope it's the same for sure. If not Cajun's is right there with it.
  10. So the sink holes usually just occur around the wick? That seems to be where I've had them happen with 6006 but I haven't made that many candles and thought it was just me not knowing what I was doing LOL! Which I'm sure is part of my problem.
  11. So after it's set up, you poke a skewer or something down in it a couple of times to check for sink holes and then do a re-pour or smooth it out with a heat gun? Just trying to get a mental picture so I won't do it wrong when I have to do it.
  12. Good question @Sebleo. I was just wondering the same thing.
  13. I don't know that I've ever noticed them having sales, have you? I just can't think of any. They do have some good FO's though and seem more reasonable than some other suppliers.
  14. I've only made a few candles and I seem to get sink holes when I use this wax too. @bfroberts and @TallTayl What do y'all use to poke holes? I'm not selling candles right now but maybe would like to one day.
  15. I too love CS pumpkin pie RE's pumpkin pie spice LS apple cinnamon CW Leaves ICS Nana's kitchen Aztec or FB or LS Cinnamon sugared donut Aztec or NG Gingerbread Aztec or FB vanilla pumpkin marshmallow JS cinnamon crunch cake I could smell these scents all year! I like bakery though.
