  3. Hello, I have been trying to make concrete candles and had an issue where the wax was falling out of the container if it is turned upside down.

I tried with Soy wax which stuck to the container, but the coconut isn't for some reason. I also tried
  7. Hello, I am pretty new to candle making and loving it so far, however, I've come into some trouble with the candles I've already made thus far. I bought generic beeswax and soy wax from hobby lobby, but neither of them performed that well, i used a fair amount of essential oil with it and i was pretty disappointed. I have since done some research and found a few people saying that coconut is a pretty good wax for scent throw and health etc. On the forums here i have seen people say igi-4627 is a good wax for scent throw, however, this is a paraffin wax which i d
