  1. I'm translating as best as I can. My German is a bit rusty having lived in the US for 28 years already. Hello, I use the calculator from NiCandles (a chandler based in Ireland) This calculator is a blessing for all chandlers and so easy to use. Here's the link. https://www.nicandlesupplies.co.uk/blogs/how-to-guides/how-to-calculate-fragrance-scent-load You just have to add how much wax you want to use and what fragrance load % you want...the calculator does everything else. I hope this helps you and everyone who's been trying to figure this out.
  2. I really love the Candy Corn from The Candle Source. It's been one of my bestsellers for 14 years.
  3. This is the 5th ot 6th picture I have seen floating around of a doughbowl that caught on fire in the last 6 months or so. Common sense is non existing with these candlemakers. Sure it looks good and people go cuckoo for them but is it really worth the risk? Nope. Of course these days there are are plenty of people who on the whim decide to make and sell (untested) candles without insurance. Very frustrating as a oldtimer.
  4. I agree with you on the Eco wicks for parasoy...they have done a wonderful job in parasoy waxes for me too. I never had any luck with the in straight soy.
  5. Skewers works well too. I wrap the wicks around them and lay them on top of the rim in a triangle
  6. I used to love WSP but it's gotten so so bad!! People are pissed. And I don't blame them. It's a shame that it's gone downhill.
  7. I hate to be "that" person...lol...but no. Last time I called I got an attitude, got hung up on and overcharged by 10$ for shipping. )
  8. Hi Guys, does anyone know if there's a twin to BCN's Cedar & Saffron? I forgot to order it with my last order and am not about to spend 15$ for shipping on one FO.
  9. oh wow....looks like soy wax does after burning. Ahhhh yes....the wonderful world of wax. Just when you think you got it....you get kicked in the arse! I tell you ...I have been testing soy for 4 years now and it taught me patience on a whole new level. As an Aries that's a big deal.
  10. Rustic Escentuals
  11. It's a thick heavy oil. It's used in making roll on oils and used as a solvent for incense. To use as a spray you'd have to dilute it further with alcohol. It's pretty easy but requires some testing to find your perfect recipe. Cyclo would be my next choice. That you can just add FO to it. Same as most premade bases.
  12. I've only ever made it with DPG and FO. Simple, easy to make I've been eyeing this base...may try it later on this Summer. https://vacandlesupply.com/Room-Spray-Base--PreMixed--64-oz_p_671.html
  13. I'm in CT. Yup, it's was 25.69 estimated then it went down to 21.69 when it shipped from WI to CT via UPS Ground. I checked on the UPS website and it showed me 11.95 from WI to CT via UPS Ground. Not sure what to make of that. Even from PA and OH it costs me an ridiculously insane amount in shipping. Especially CW in PA. One bottle of FO shows me 20.92 shipping.
  14. I wouldn't be surprised. I have never tried it. Shipping from BC to me is insane. I just paid 25$ for shipping for 3 bottles of FO.
