  1. Wicking is so tricky. Who am I kidding the whole science behind candle making is tricky haha. I have been working to perfect a candle but have yet successfully completed one. My favorite wicks are eco 1s but I get a lot of soot and I feel my candle burns too fast. I’m using an 8 oz tin jar. But I’m using a much higher fragrance load then you are in at a 10% and after some research I’m beginning to think I may need to lessen the load. My candle does have a hot throw however after three hours it becomes a fuel like smell.
  2. Hi thank you so much for your response! making candles has become the most therapeutic part of my life. I absolutely love it, even while producing horrible candles. I refuse to launch without the perfect candle. I have invested my life to learning to make candles. I have been with the eco series wicks, but haven’t found one that will work for my candle. I’m hoping to find some soon. I’m also wondering if I should try lessening my fragrance load. It’s so tricky but I’m here for it and I’m determined to create a beautiful candle.
  3. Thank you so much for your reply and encouraging words. Right now I am working with an 8oz tin- 6 oz of wax. I have tried 2 Eco 1 wicks and 1 eco 4. I keep getting a fueled waxy smell. I can smell the fragrance but by hour three it’s a fuel smell. I’m using a 10% frangrance load. I tried 6- it didn’t produce any hot throw. I continue to mass produce and that’s where I’m messing up. I am curing for five days with the 6006 wax- all of this mentioned above is with 6006 wax. My tin size is 2.1 inches in height and 3.14 in diameter. When I launch I want to provide two candle the 8oz tin jars and a 13.5 straight side glass jar. I have not tested in the glass jars- should I be doing so aswell? The 2 eco 1 wicks with a ten percent fragrance load burned pretty fast with the 6006. By the third hour I burn almost the entire candle. Do you think lessening the fragrance load could help? Because I really liked the hot throw for the first hour and part of the second hour, but I burned too fast and by hour three it became a fuel waxy smell. Again, THANK YOU soooo much for taking the time to respond and help me! I really appreciate you! 🥰
  4. Hi everyone! I hope I am in the right place! I am a newbie here on craftserver, and I started my candle business in September of 2021. I plan to launch next year. Enough about me and more about why I am making this thread. Earlier this year when I started making candles I really wanted to do a soy candle. I got the C3 wax and began mass producing different scents- not knowing how it all works. After lots of wasted money and attempts- because not only was I mass producing candles with this wax, I was also using one wick, then found out that wick didn’t work, so what did I do? I ordered a new wick and mass produced again the following week- and so on and so fourth, going through about 6 different wicks, all while mass producing. I since then switched over to a para-soy wax- IGI 6006. I really love the wax but I seriously can’t figure it out with the wicks. Im almost to the point of doing an all paraffin wax because I know my candle will sell for the meaning behind it… I lost two children. My daughter passed away in 2014 due to sepsis and my son passed away in 2016 due to pneumonia. I started my business in memory of my babies- every candle will be named after a person. If you would like to see more I’ll link my YouTube here. I am also on TikTok @corrinamallory and my candle page @knlheavenscentcandleco please give me advice on what wicks to try and or if I should maybe switch to a paraffin wax? I am soooooo desperate for help! PLEASEEEE! YouTube
