  1. Greeting to all. Nice to find this forum. I am fairly new to candle making but find it awesome to do. Mom bought out my brother and I make the candles now. I understand container candles and am doing good on custom pies, jelly rolls etc. So my problem is, I found several blocks of Clear Pillar Base wax in our booty but can't find any online anywhere. The stuff is really neat to use for smaller items and some clear gel embeds. I don't have much left but would like to know if it can still be purchased. If not, why has it been discontinued? Thank you for the help in advance.

    Anything else we should know? I am sort of a cancer patient with lung cancer. Beat throat cancer via surgery two years ago and took up candle making since I can't really work anymore. I love doing the creative stuff like pies and cakes, embeds, candles in candles. I am learning how to make the ultimate votive/pillar wax but have experienced failure. Am starting to work with custom smells. I am single so can devote time to candle making but have bad thyroid issues and often want to nap but oh well. How yall doing out there in the world of wax? I love it.
