  1. Welcome! This is the BEST place to learn!
  2. These are beautiful!! Congratulations! I LOVE the containers
  3. Interesting, thanks so much!
  4. Thank you! That makes perfect sense now that you say it. I was reading through some old threads about oil warmers and seeing people worried about smoking or steam? And I wasn't sure if it translated into the salt. It makes sense though since the FO is essentially absorbed into it? I'm going to the store today and may have to grab a bag to play with! I'm intrigued by this idea. It's been a very l long couple of weeks with some family things going on and I am very interested it something easy and rewarding I think these will look beautiful and make great gifts for Christmas. I'm also thinking of ditching jelly jars since I am struggling to wick it with soy. I should have just gone straight sided. Anyway, I have a few and I think these salts would look really pretty in them Thanks again for your advice!
  5. Hi TallTayl! I know you’re a stickler for safety and I appreciate that so much so I’ll ask you this. It may have been mentioned in here but I’m seeing different things. Are these salts safe for the warmer just FO and micas? I am thinking so but always want to be sure. I know they’re fine just as a potpourri. I think I may take a break from candle frustrations and work on something easier. TIA!
  6. Certainly sounds like a lovely and interesting trip and so glad you had a good time! I'm in Ohio and if you go out far enough you can find Amish country. It's quite amazing and beautiful!
  7. That’s amazing! Will definitely be excited to see what you come up with. Didn’t realize the shape was patented.
  8. I got just a tad excited about FO's 🤣 But I should also say, glad your trip was fun! Is Waco where Chip and Joanna Gaines reside? Id be so interested to see their houses. I also love Amish stuff! I think their way of life is so fascinating. Part of me wishes they would adopt me.
  9. That's so cool! She seems like a lovely person. I got my order today and I am so excited about them. I got what a lot of you recommended. Lavender, Cedar Musk and Lavender (I really think my husband will like this one) Blazing Bonfire, Blueberry Pecan Waffles, Marshmallow Fireside, Fresh Mint and Eucalyptus, Espresso (excited about this one been looking for a good coffee FO), and Cocoa Cashmere. Let's just say I can't wait to pour some candles 😍 They all smell great! Very impressed.
  10. Yes! Thank you! I am already becoming spoiled by homemade soap. It's sooooooo much better, I had no idea or I'd have tried it sooner. I figure since it's my first batch and I didn't work too much on making it pretty I'd just use it as I go and note how long each subsequent bar has been used. I use to use dove and my skin is already better. It's kind of crazy actually. Much, much different. I tried a scrubby bar for my husband too as he likes to work on trucks. It was predominantly coconut oil and I added some apricot powder and a few coffee grounds to it. He actually really likes it! I just need to work on making them pretty and smell good too Have a great rest of your weekend!
  11. This is interesting. I like the idea of the tapered wick but don't have steady access to that that I am aware of. I am struggling with a stinking 8oz jelly jar. Do you think this method would work for that? I am using 464 and upon recommendation going to try it with a small amount of palm added today. I'm actually getting ok hot throw with a CD5 wick. It burns very well up top but i'm about 1/2 way down and an hour into a test burn. I can see the melt pool growing. I think I am going to try a CDN wick as well? I did notice that my CD was curling quite a bit making one side of the jar hotter than the other. So far the jar temp has been below 175 but I imagine it will exceed by the end. Would be interested to try a small votive. That is really smart. Do you have a recommendation for what would work well with 464? Thanks!
  12. Yes, i can definitely tell! She invited me to the FB group but I have been blissfully social media free (besides here) for 5 years. Once I actually am up and running selling I will likely have to get one. I will for sure add their group. They seem like real people and I like that! Very excited to receive my scents. Hoping they come today! Also hope you enjoyed your vacation! I could use one of those right now! Well.. anytime at all I could use one 🤣
  13. I think I should add that I ordered around 8pm EST last night and it's been shipped at 10:30am. Thrilled about that! 😏
  14. Hi there! New to this conversation. But I read through and went ahead and ordered some of your recommended scents from MWFC. VERY excited to receive them Also got an email from them welcoming me and asking if I had any questions, etc. Customer Service is not dead! Thanks for all of the recommendations!
  15. I have not, unfortunately, but once we get that in the US I will definitely be trying! I have a lot of interest in olive, rapeseed, and coconut wax. Hopefully someone with experience can help you. Let us know how it goes! Will be interested to learn along with you Best wishes!
