  1. I use the coconut blend from Candles and Supplies so I don't know if this will be helpful but I use HTP wicks. I found the ECO and CD wicks burned too hot for my formula.
  2. Thanks so much for the response I didn't figure there was a work-around but thought I would ask
  3. I have an unusual situation on Etsy and wanted to know if anyone else had dealt with it yet. I finally decided to get up the nerve to sell my candles this year after 13 years of testing HAHAHA. Anyway, I decided I would test pricing to see if I could sell my candles with the $35 free shipping guarantee. Here is the problem; right now, I sell wick template guides on my Etsy site. They are instant download files so there is no shipping. If I offer the $35 free shipping guarantee and someone buys (1) candle and wick templates, I will lose money I emailed Etsy but they are too busy to respond. I missed the Christmas selling window because I didn't know how to handle shipping. I am not too disappointed in missing the Christmas rush because this will be my first experience with online selling, shipping, etc. and this time of year isn't the best time to get your feet wet but I do want to get it launched at the beginning of January. Has anyone else had this issue?
  4. https://www.ecowatch.com/are-candles-toxic-2196126131.html They state that paraffin candle fumes are toxic vs natural waxes. In my opinion, I don't believe soy is any better than paraffin but it has definitely worked to sell soy
  5. My husband got me the Cricut Maker for my birthday this year and I LOVE IT!!!! I don't think there is anything it can't do LOL
  6. I don't normally like to leave OOB reviews but I got a sample from RE of Sugar Frosted Plum and I LOVE IT! I am waiting to get it in wax and praying it delivers I also got the new Cypress and Bayberry FO from Candlescience. It is a beautiful scent and a STRONG thrower
  7. Hi Marleigha My all-time favorite from Candlescience is their Banana Nut Bread. I know it's been around forever but I never get tired of it LOL Some of my other favorite oldies but goodies... Hansel & Gretel's House Carmelized Prailines Lemon Pound Cake Mistletoe Lavender Strawberry Shortcake Hazelnut Coffee Pumpkin Souffle Sea Salt and Orchid Very Vanilla Sandlewood These all throw really well and smell great! Some of the newer ones I have been tried... Fallen Leaves - I didn't care for this one. I pick up a cologne smell but that may just be me Pumpkin Chai - I really like this one a lot! I haven't got it wicked right yet but it's got a good throw so far despite that Cypress & Bayberry - This is an amazing scent! If you like Bayberry you will love it! Black Current Absynthe - I can't decide if I like this one or not LOL. It is definitely different and interesting and STRONG! Hot Apple Pie - I'm not impressed with this one. I can't smell it real well. It is in wax I decided not to use though because I was having trouble with cold throw so I may give it another shot. Also, I have always had trouble picking up apple scents so I'm probably not the best person to review it LOL Cardamom and Star Anise - It's an interesting scent and strong but, if you do not like black licorice, you will not like this one Some I didn't like... Caramel Popcorn - All I smell is the butter, no caramel. If you need a movie popcorn scent, this would probably work. I haven't tested it for hot throw Cinnamon Chai - Just do not care for the scent at all. It does have a good hot throw though Apple Maple Bourbon - Again this could be because my nose has trouble with Apple scents, but i didn't care for this one either. It has a ton of good reviews though so I suspect it's probably just me Pomegranate Cider - Another one I didn't care for. It's too tart for me I haven't gotten these in wax yet but OOB scents I like... Black Sea - It is a cologne type scent but I like it Cinnamon Stick - I smell cinnamon sticks other people smell red hots Snickerdoodle - Yummy Toasted Pumpkin Spice - This is such an awesome scent OOB. I have high hopes it will hold up in wax

  9. I couldn't get the LX wicks to work for me either. I was using the Coconut-apricot blend from Candlewic. I had the best luck with HTP wicks but I have a triple wick candle so your results may be different.
  10. I would be interested in a co-op P.S.... I'm so curious, how do you dispense from the 10 gallon drum?
  11. Right now I only use (2) scents from Rustic Escentuals, Toasted Marshmallow and Amish Quilt. To justify the cost of shipping I need to find a few more scents so i went a little overboard. Any reviews or "Oh Kim you should have ordered that scent from here instead!" are more than welcome lol Here's the list Cranberry Salsa Baked Apple HI (KY) Salty Sea Air Bourbon and Brown Sugar Maple Glazed Bacon Warm Vanilla Nutmeg Barbershop 1920's Little Black Dress Beachwood Vetiver Birthday Cake Birthday Cake (KY) Bora Bora Christmas Bliss (FES) Christmas Past (KY) Pumpkin Bread Spiced Pumpkin Latte Caramel Cafe Flannel Sheets ClothesPins Wine by Candlelight Apple Cinnamon Caramel Pretzel Bar Caramel Sensations Kickin' Caramel Pumpkin Pie (KY) Pumpkin Pie Spice Welcome Home Leather Volcano type Celtic MoonSpice (CM) Pipe Smoke Dreamcatcher Tis The Season Homemade Apple Pie (KY) Main Street Christmas Bamboo Sugar Cane Earl Grey & Apple Luscious Vanilla Autumn Rain Champagne Ambre Lumiere type Apricot & Honey Awapuhi Seaberry Badedas Candy Cane Cupcake Cinna-Vanilla (KY) Cinnamon Toast (KY) Ezra Falling Leaves (FES) Fruit Loops type (KY) Sweet Pea type Pink Sugar type (Aquolina) Love Spell type (KY) Cornbread (KY) Red Currant Hippie Chick Sugar Frosted Plum Salted Caramel Popcorn Pink Berry & Tonka Bean Stainless Steel
