  1. Ok look at the banner on top of their homepage. They state 7-9 business days (m-f) which starts day after order is placed. You can do something called a jump but I'm sure it costs to do it and your order jumps in front of others.
  2. I think a lot of delays are due to Covid and the individual state's restrictions. I wouldn't write them off for a 1 time thing, check their website or call to see if they are impacted. Possibly inventory time as well, usually it's Dec or Jan, again they should post this stuff on website if they want to retain customers.
  3. I don't use your wax but with soy I wick down 1 size for the heavy citrus or straight citrus to avoid a fuel smell. I use cotton core wicks but the A&P series 60C or 62C in a 3.25" jar. I love citrus scents so use them a lot. Lemon Biscotti was one of my favorite scents when I could get it back in the day!
  4. The exact wax is important to know, all soy waxes are not the same. Also typically it would start at around 60 ml per kilo (1 oz per pound of wax).
  5. Flaming had a great coffee but haven't used since all this reformulation has gone on again.
  6. Thanks for the info, always interesting to see if market trends match my area. I guess I'm not personally trendy, all I seem to want to smell is citrus. This has been throughout 2020. Every candle & melt I made for myself or bought was either straight citrus or it was the main scent. Burning berry lemonade right now.
  7. If that doesn't work try tapering the wood wick. In other words use a larger than needed for first burns but trim off some from top, that way the larger portion of the wick is just in the last burns. I don't use them but my friend does and this is how she finally got good results all the way to the bottom of the jar.
  8. It's been quite a bit but if I remember correctly I used 6% fo otherwise I had wick buildup. I use Cotton core 60-62 in a 3.25" jar. Imo it's very much like C1, maybe C1 has more soy??
  9. Actually, just checked their website and chat is avail every day 9-5
  10. If you can't find, it might be worth it to try contacting Genwax's outlet store and see if it's something they would bring in.
  11. I agree totally @TallTayl if the suppliers would just give everyone a heads up it would help, well everyone that subscribes to their email notifications anyway. They know way before we do that the mfgs need to reformulate (I guess if you have nothing but time you could continuously research on this). Why not advise customers, last chance to buy the old formula? It's not just CS but I understand the frustration!
  12. Dang! Thanks, My notes say spritz until it holds together, I prob did too much. Also wondering if humidity plays a part, they are finally dry and not sticky.
  13. I know this is an old post. I just made shower steamers again (first time since moving to OR) and they grew like crazy. Last time they came out nice and flat. Not sure if it's the humidity in our house/outside or I added too much witch hazel? Any ideas? This batch was for me so I don't care I'll use them but I'd like to start selling them again.
  14. Candle Science used to be one of my fav suppliers. In the past few years they have discontinued more scents that were rated really good and several waxes. IDK what is going on with them but they are way down on my list of those to buy from. With the 464 I'm guessing it's the issues with both the product batches being so different and the fact that they can't seem to get enough to keep stock steady. Suppliers get tired of hearing complaints on products and have to weigh in the time and $ spent replacing stuff.
