  1. I hope this is ok to share. I saw this on Facebook recently. It is a Bath & Bodyworks candle. The consumer says the wicks were in the center when purchased but migrated to the sides after second day of burning for two hours. The wicks are not attached on the bottom. Company just keeps saying "we'll look into it".
  2. What is pfo? If Pure Fragrance Oils, I am not finding it on their website. GoldieMN
  3. US Candle Supply just got more in. Not sure how their price compares to others with shipping. https://uscandlesupply.com/product/naturewax-c-3-soy-container-wax-flake-50lb-case/ GoldieMN
  4. Side note: I can get beautiful smooth tops; but when I poke a shish kabob skewer all the way to the bottom (about 1/2" from the wick), I often find holes. I cool in front of a fan and pour around 110 but plan on going even lower until I get this perfected. Until then, I will continue to poke holes through those beautiful tops. Welcome to the craziness!

  5. LOL, thank goodness! That is what I am doing. . .about 105. GoldieMN
  6. Is this just for Midwest? (Pouring right after stirring.) Are you also doing this with C-1? GoldieMN
  7. If the cd16s don't work, I can send you a few different sizes of Premier wicks to try. GoldieMN
  8. Is this a new bottle of Christmas Tree? I hope Filmore hasn't changed its oils. GoldieMN
  9. UGH! So might as not buy a sample pack of any wick to test as they may be different from a 100 pack. GoldieMN
  10. @sarahmarah Hmmm. . .I might try making a few clamshells with the C-3 to see if the bubbles still appear. Is it just the appearance of the bubbles that bothers you or is the performance of the candle affected by the bubbles? LOL Hey, I already go through all that with any/evert soy I've used. Poking holes. . .I'm so afraid of selling something that might not be safe. GoldieMN
  11. I do like the C-1. Is it hard getting a good hot throw with C-3? I ordered both to begin with last year but didn't give C-3 much of a try. Are the champagne bubbles the only drawback? Do they go all the way through the wax or just on top. GoldieMN
  12. @sarahmarah I have 50 lbs. of C-3 that I need to do something with one of these days. I may be calling on you for help. GoldieMN
  13. Congratulations! We are all so fortunate to have you sharing the knowledge you have gained over these ten years with us. We all miss things as our children grow up. But it is amazing what children remember from their childhood. Not that first step, first word, of course; but that you showed them how to plant vegetables, that you took them with you to the voting booth, that you read to them or showed them how to put a worm on a hook, or how to make a bar of soap. GoldieMN
  14. @TallTayl Ok. I started wondering if this is the way it SHOULD look, and I've been doing it wrong this whole time. 😏 My cooling wax doesn't usually get very cloudy even at 120. But I will add your suggestions and keep an eye out for that island. GoldieMN
