    Or, I could put a dab on a square of fabric and tuck it in there

    So, dab a drop of fragrance oil on it and then seal it to send it?

    I was really looking for a way to get scent to them without wasting wax. NG sends dipped wooden roses. Idk if I could send them in the mail. Either that or a swatch with a drop of FO on it and enclosed in a sealed small container. I need to figure this out πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜πŸ˜

    That's a great idea. Was hoping I could do a fabric swatch with a drop of oil on it encased in a cosmetic screw on cap container https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vivaplex-50-Clear-Empty-5-Gram-Plastic-Pot-Jars-Cosmetic-Containers/43513367?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=8753&adid=22222222228031448583&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=56385837656&wl4=pla-100829400776&wl5=9008052&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=115794464&wl11=online&wl12=43513367&wl13=&veh=sem
  7. Hi All 🌷 Lately I have been asked for samples of scents to be sent to potential clients (not wholesale). I only offer one size jar which has worked beautifully for me because it allows me to offer a large variety of scent combos. With that said, I do not offer clamshells. Clamshells would seem like the appropriate answer to the "can you send out samples" inquiry. But... I'm wondering if there are other ways that are more cost effective to remedy the sample need. I use soy and coconut wax and it doesn't set up firm enough to pop out of the container. Obviously, I can't send FO's πŸ˜‚ Thanks, Corgi Caper

    Gunpowder FO and Burnt Rubber FO

    Still looking and testing. Will keep you updated. I'm almost at 100% gunpowder on my own mix of FO's
  9. I am testing a coconut hybrid from Candles and Supplies. It's a proprietary blend for them. Mostly coconut and a tad of soy. Cold throw is outstanding. Testing wicks right now.
  10. The 50/50 blend that I totally loved and it worked great with zine cores for 10 years was Just Scent (JSB Blend). Now....not so much.
  11. Hi All, Doing some testing behind the scenes. For the last 10 years have used a 50/50 blend par/soy. 1.25 oz per pound FO and zinc core wicks. Zinc cores throw so well. Having some issues as many are with my wax now that has soy blended in it. All of a sudden not holding 1.25 FO load that I have always used. Heating, blending and pouring at all the temps I have always done with no prior problems. Cut back to 1oz FO pp and still bleeding out. Like...all of a sudden this out of the blue ? In addition, wax is cracking and tunneling. I am using same FO's. Room temperature 74Β° and candles covered for slow cool down. Nothing has changed from my end ? Getting disgusted because I have a large clientele and bunches of shows. Have enough candles that were made to get me through the Fall in inventory that I made before this shenanigans... Thank God!!! Anywhooooo... testing out a coconut / soy wax hybrid. Papercores don't throw in this wax and zinc cores are too hot for this wax. Loving both RRD and CD wicks. CD seems to burn a bit hotter and fast. RRD slow burn, but the mushroom bugs me. Wicked down and it drowns. Picking your brains on your pro's and con's of RRD vs Heinz Coreless (CD) Sorry so long ? Corgi Caper

    JS123 Wax

    I have used her JSB container blend for at least 5 years. Something is very "wonky" now with this 50/50 blend. I have been making jar candles with this wax for a long time and all of a sudden it won't hold 1oz per pound of FO. Heating to 175, adding FO at 160 and pouring. 7 days later, FO leeching out all around neck of jars. She said it's something I must be doing wrong ? I've been making candles for 20 years. This wax is cracking and having sink holes too. Not sure what's going on.
  13. Just ordered this from Candles and Supplies. Anybody try it yet? Switching from a 50/50 blend. Thanks

    Gunpowder FO and Burnt Rubber FO

    Thank you so much for your responses Yes, oddly enough I keep getting asked for candles that smell like both of them. Although I am not surprised since I live in the mountains where shooting guns is a sport. The burnt rubber thing... have no excuse for that one... lol CC
