  1. Same here, the "soy is best" hype is all around me and not to mention them selling 8 ounce jelly jars for $5, 16 ounce for $10.

    Jar scoopables melting in heat?!

    I know many ship candles that use softer container waxes without issues, so why would a wickless jar be any different? I have seen popular wax vendors who sell scoops exclusively with great success, and all year round for that matter. I know a particular vendor (only sold scoops all year round) that is now retired that never used ice packs along with orders, so it makes me believe it can be done. I ask this very question as I prefer scoops to candles myself and would like to get my customers on board. However, all I picture upon arrival is sweating tops or half melted wax 😨😓 and would not want to introduce something that can only be offered locally.

    Are warmers hot enough lately?

    Other than square dishes (wax hang up in the corners), low watt wall plug ins, and a large clamshell company who sells lower watt warmers (Scen**y)...would you say majority of warmers get hot enough nowadays to use a wax like CBL 141, 4625, or palm without blending in a container wax? I feel these 3 waxes perform very well on their own for me using hot plates, but not all customers use hot plates. Every wax actually is throwing amazing for me in quality oils as far as paraffin and palm goes (including CBL 125, 4786, 4630, CBL 129). Some that say the throw is lighter (which is not very often as I use great oils), I wonder if it just may be the wattage of the warmer they're using and not my melts themselves? I know I could just eliminate this concern by blending container with one of the 3 mentioned initially, but I like hard clean tarts for warmers. Plus since it throws so great on its own, why work harder for the same result?

    CBL 129 Wax issues

    Even the finish/texture/appearance around the rim does not look like the same wax in both clamshells...very odd.
  9. Either a rubber spatula or jumbo popsicle sticks...
  10. Not Sarah, but I find all of my white paraffin waxes to have discoloration depending on the oils (when I do not color). This is just the nature of being dye-free wax, just like CP soap once it cures over time. I have not had anyone mind it. I have never used white pigment so I cannot comment on that aspect.

    Calling All C-1 Users

    Whom are these huge candle manufacturers and how do you know they use C1 if you don't mind me asking?
  12. @Trappeur curious on your thoughts of going from soy to pouring paraffin? I happen to miss the texture of soy sadly, but not the throw.

    Belinda, Just Scent and Indigo. Was also wanting to try Aztec since it has over 100 great reviews but why do that if I already love ICS version?!
