    Box of C3

    Still available
  3. Hi all, I purchased a 50 LB box of C3 soy wax earlier this year and would like to give the remainder away. Would anyone be interested? Pick up in person or cover shipping. Iā€™m located in California for reference
  4. @Shari What does the cornstarch do?
  5. If you had to choose one. No blends. Things to think about: Eco-Friendliness "Cleaner" burn Customer favorability Easy wicking Easy pouring Easy to source Compatible with fragrances Aesthetics
  6. Hi Shari, here's my recipe. I used silicone ice cube trays and each steamer came out to 1 in x 1 in. 20 oz. Sodium Bicarbonate 10 oz. Citric Acid 36 mL Eucalyptus Essential Oil Witch Hazel
  7. Does anyone have experience with shower steamers? I've made a few batches but the scent did not come through in the shower as strong as I'd like. I am using essential oils such as eucalyptus and peppermint oil. Any tips on how to rework these batches? Thanks.
  8. CandleScience has them: https://www.candlescience.com/containers/3-wick-tumbler
  9. I buy mine at onlinelabels.com or sheetlabels.com and use their Microsoft Word templates to print my own labels.
  10. WOW, they have great stuff! I would love to try their fragrances and jars, but looking at the prices I'm not too sure I will šŸ¤£ They are no longer in USA, here is the announcement: https://www.candleworksusa.com/category/201460
  11. May I ask what wax you use? 3 day cure time sounds lovely!!
  12. Thank you thank you. I might just mix C3 with one of the recommendations above.
  13. Interesting ! Thanks for clarifying. For 8oz glass jars (2.5" - 3" diameter) would I be closer to cd14 or cd16?
  14. strange how CD12 achieved a greater melt pool than CD14 šŸ˜³
  15. this is extremely helpful! thank you
  16. Can anyone recommend a wax with short cure time and strong CT/HT? Is there such a thing? I'm currently using C-3, Candlescience FO's and HTP wicks. Zero HT after a month. So ready to ditch C-3 šŸ˜…
  17. thank you @soshiegirl and @Sarah S vanilla verbena is definitely on my list !
  18. has anyone tried the designer/brand scents from candlewic? please let me know if they are worth it bombshell vs type polo black type vanilla verbena slatkin type white palm slatkin type dkny be delicious type cherry blossom bbw type freshwater cucumber bbw type storm watch yankee type fig henri bendel bbw type
  19. hi everyone ! just out of curiosity , what do you stir your wax with and why? wooden stick, chopstick, silicone spatula etc.
  20. hi @Laura C i don't use dye but thanks for the heads up ! this is the respirator i bought: https://www.amazon.com/3M-65021HA1-C-Household-Multi-Purpose-Respirator/dp/B002NMFLU2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1548965720&sr=8-3&keywords=3m+household+respirator
  21. https://www.candlemakingsupplies.net/ also has HTP wicks. im currently testing HTP wicks with C3 wax. would you consider this as too big of a wick?
  22. thank you all. i'm going to shop around for a respirator. for now i'm going to see if a disposable mask would suffice. i have them laying around my house, might as well put them to use.
  23. terrible headaches while making them. i'm wondering if synthetic fragrances in general cause headaches and if working with natural oils would be better. i don't get headaches while burning them. i use C3 and the heat throw is 60% existent.
  24. hi all, can anyone explain why some fragrance oils cause headaches? i've been researching online and found out why but not exactly what ingredient or chemical causes the headache itself... can anyone recommend fragrance oils or suppliers for someone with a sensitive nose? who are your favorite suppliers for natural fragrance oils?
  25. hi everyone, who are your favorite suppliers for fragrance oils? i've been using fo's from a local candle store but they are headache inducing !! are all fo's composition the same? are there fo's out there less headache inducing than others? i want to try natural fragrance oils but read that they are just as tricky as essential oils in soy candles. thanks in advance.
