  1. They do. They don't advertise it much but should. It makes a huge difference.
  2. I use mineral oil and sunflower oil too. Tried both and they work the same. Do they have long shelf life? I just started making them.
  3. Hello ShelleyF, are you still interested in fragrance lots?  I have a bunch, let me know if you have any preference of company, and I'll check my stash.

      Hi did you get my message?

  4. Thank you. This morning I went to the Food Service place and bought the kosher salt. I am just reading your message but I was thinking coarse salt would work. They gave me kosher salt is it the same thing? It looks really pretty the difference though is the price it was $36 with tax for 36 lb. It is much more money than the salt crystals that cost $9 with tax here for 40 lb. But it's a lot easier to deal with and I don't know if I'd feel like beating the crystals all the time lol does it take a long time to do it? Because it is a lot cheaper. I accidentally bought the wrong thing 2 days ago. I bought salt pellets and I do not take color well at least these don't and there's huge but they were only 649 a bag plus tax for 40. Pounds. I am keeping my solar salts that are decent sized to make crystal potpourri. To sit in bathrooms. But for some reason these little ones are becoming very popular and they're calling them simmering granules and simmering salt an aroma crystals. I'm going to try beating the ones I have and see what happens. I didn't realize they were different sizes me a bag I did notice in the same bag there different sizes but I didn't realize some are smaller than others. I appreciate it I'm going to check it out.
  5. @TallTayl do you know where to get small salt from like coarse sea salt? I was using the solar crystals from Lowe's but I like the little bitty ones I see people using. But the coarse sea salt is 225 a pound where I live and a bag of the 40 lb big crystals is 7
  6. I make crystal potpourri salt but I buy the bigger chunks. I am looking for the smaller chunks that are tiny. Does anyone know where to get this or what it's called? Thank you
  7. I wanted to try them but heard they are a lot like CS Clean Scents.
  8. Thank you for sharing this TallTayl I hope it doesn't go like this because I don't like clean fragrances. The fragrances that I use are very strong. I don't like the companies that sell scents that seem natural. For example candlescience clean scents I am not impressed with at all. I don't like Northwood either because it remind me of clean Scents and no throw. I also make a lot of Bakery laundry fruit fragrances and I do not concentrate on nature fragrances as much. I do make all kinds but I hope it's not going this way because what am I going to do? We might have to sell stuff that we hate? People that I sell to like a lot of Bakery and they wanted very strong and they have never asked me if it's natural at all. This is a very good information that you have shared and I do appreciate it and I am checking it out to see what I need to do.
  9. That is horrible of them to do That. I don't buy from them any more. I haven't tried Cierra volcano but will now.
  10. Have you tried Cierra? She has great fragrances and has phthalates.
  11. This is why I try to buy new old stock. I'm tired of the formulations. Why do they ruin a great thing?
  12. You are a great motivator. I am trying to find out my audience. I decided that wax is not my thing because I cannot pour it sitting down. I need to sit more than I was. So it's hard because the things that I sell aren't as popular as wax. I am trying to sell scented salts, smelly jelly air fresheners, liquid wax melts made from smelly jelly, scented crystals Crystal potpourri, scented sachets and carpet fresheners, and soy drops since I can make those sitting. The great thing about most of this is that I can get some of the supplies a lot easier and cheaper then all the heavy shipping. And I do enjoy making all of these. I have been collecting fragrances like crazy so having a lot of choices I am hoping we'll help me out lol
  13. That's the thing I'm trying to sell online only. I have Achilles heels in both feet and a torn meniscus in my knee that have not healed and it's been 5 years. It is a struggle going places some days are better than others. Going to the fair is not going to happen I could not go through that. And I know a lot of people buy from those markets. I am hoping and praying that it is not too hard but I am not a quitter.
  14. Thank you TallTayl I to hear this. I have been trying to perfect my products for 2 and 1/2 years. I will admit when I was new I tried selling my products after a month. I do not make candles that is not my idea of a good time. I have never had any interest in that. I was selling while I was trying to perfect everything. I was making a lot of mistakes and I have changed my label 11 times now. I got tired of people seeing all my craziness so I had stopped selling. I am finally ready to go full forward now. I pride myself in making good products and I have tested a long time now. This is definitely not a get-rich quick deal. It is unbelievable how many people on Facebook think it is. I needed to hear what you said because I have felt bad about myself that it is taking so long to get everything right. I mean how many people change their packaging and products completely and their labels 11 times before they decide lol
  15. I saw someone saying they were launching this week. They made one set of candles and they didn't test anything and they don't know anything about it. She said she was super stressed because she knew she was going to sell out and won't have enough stock. She said she didn't have any more supplies to make anything else and people were going to be mad. It was not my business to say something but I sure wanted to. I saw another lady buy a pallet of jars and a pallet of fragrances and this was before she sold one item. She said she was making sure she was totally stocked. Then reality hit and she barely sold anything and now she's questioning if she overbought. I feel bad for them actually. I know how it is to dream about making a lot of money. I know that it can come in time.
