  1. I am relatively new to this forum and mostly just read posts. Regardless, I think it's a great idea! I love that this forum has always been focused on educating, learning, and sharing. If the new ads are a way to keep this great service going, then I am all for it. Personally, I really love the idea of links in people's signature lines.
  2. Thanks for sharing! How long do you usually cure your candles with this wax?
  3. Did you use 464 for wax melts? Often, I ask myself why I am not making more melts instead of candles...darn wicks...
  4. I just saw these red ones tiny ones on an Instagram ad a few days ago. I have no experience from ordering from this company. https://www.glassnow.com/glass-candle-containers/3oz-square-candle-glass-container-1468
  5. Blood Orange from CS smells amazing! I used it in my orange cold process soap and it was super strong then faded to almost nothing. I realize CP soap and candle making are completely different, but will admit that I am interested in hearing if you have any fading issues.
  6. Good to know! I haven't really branched out too much beyond what I can get at my local grocery store.
  7. Hello, I was wondering if anyone uses apricot kernel oil in their soaps and would be willing to share their thoughts on it. I just really love apricots-ha! Thanks!
  8. This is so fascinating. I have never heard about this! I am totally trying this out on a small batch! Ugh, Illinois has been a bit of a roller coaster ride lately. Two weeks ago we wore sweatshirts at my son's baseball game, now we are worried about heatstroke.
  9. I am attempting to try out some fragrance oil blending. Do you have any suggestions on how to start? Should I try small melts or just jump right in with a candle? Step one is just figuring out if I like the scent, then I will master the wicking process. Many thanks!
  10. I have two pounds of Red Currant and I am just not a fan. It reminds me of shampoo, but I have no idea why. This is a long shot, but does anyone have any experience blending this fragrance and would be willing to share their experience? I just hate looking those unused bottles.
  11. I bought a case of status jars, because I just love the look of them. I was super disappointed when I noticed that the jars were all molded wonky. The inside bottom of the jars were slightly at an angle and I just couldn't get past it. I love the cute lids that work with them!
  12. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had luck combining Nature Wax C-6 coconut wax and Golden 464. I happen to have both of these waxes on hand, but I thought I might gather a little information before I start experimenting. I tried using C-6 on its own and was very perplexed by it-could have been the wicks. What's a good ratio of 464/c-6 to start with? Do you have any thoughts on wicks? I was hoping to improve the hot throw with 464 by using the coconut wax. Many thanks!
  13. I will! Sorry about your friend. Although I only knew her through words, but she was such an sweet inspiration.
  14. I just wanted to put it out there-I just ordered Vanilla Bean Noel from WSP, only because Trappeur recommended it. I didn't need it, but I just felt like I had to buy a small bottle just because she "told" me to on this forum.
