  1. There are just so many variables - every situation is different in regards to what each of us uses - the wax or wax/blend, wicking, jar size and shape, environmental issue, etc etc etc - that is why what works for me might not work for you That being said, I was told by someone many years ago that if any FO was not strong enough for me at 6% then just forget it and move on to one of the other FOs that are out there - and there are a million others that are out there! - plus there is the economics of it - that $15 bottle used at 6% is a $30 bottle at 12% - I think you find some knock-your-socks-off higher end FOs might actually be cheaper because you use less
  2. Sorry I disappeared from this thread right after posting - life got in the way and I was offline for a while Seems the consensus is to average but like everything else in life it must ultimately be determined by the individual situation Thanks everyone for your input
  3. Specifically, how do you set your price to account for FO when different FOs can be priced so differently? I can't see setting different prices for different scents but they can run from $15.00 a lb. to $30.00 and up (way up!) - Do you figure your price point at the highest price and just reap the benefit of any lower priced FO? I can't see averaging them all because with my luck the highest priced FO would be by far the biggest seller and that would not work out for long
  4. For those who sell, what is the maximum price you are willing to pay for your FO with shipping? In keeping your costs in line there has to be a bottom line to all cost and FO is so all over the board there has to be a point where an FO is just so costly that it just isn't feasible to carry it in your line - Do you have a price point for FO that you just will not go over?
  5. We are consumed with our Craft - we are proud of what we do and feel we must put out the very best we can - the companies on the other hand are driven by "the bottom line" and making a buck - all it takes is the properly worded warning sticker and the team of corporate lawyers and it's no problem right?
  6. Today through Friday, Candle Science has all 1oz fragrance oils on sale for $0.99 ea - limit of one sample bottle per fragrance while supplies last
  7. Of course he meant like when Mama washes your mouth out with soap for swearing - shame on you for thinking anything else!
  8. I have an idea for a novelty candle that I would have to make my own molds for but might be popular enough in this area to be worth it - it would not be a pillar but rather would be narrower and wide - most people would never burn it but is is wax with a wick so I have make it for that one person - and I don't want to burn that one person's house down
  9. Yes thats the type of mold I am talking about - I understand about the testing - am wondering about the burn itself - I have never even thought about attempting to burn a novelty candle so have no idea how they actually burn but I know it would have to be completely different than a traditional pillar - with the various odd shapes do you wick for each to tunnel or what? Is it just determined by whatever you think is the best burn for each individual shape? Some I have seen are fairly thin but very wide making it impossible to consume most of the wax - I guess I am just confused as to what kind of burn I would be looking for
  10. I have a question about what I will call "Novelty" pillar candles for lack of being able to think of the proper or a better name - I am talking about the various different shaped pillars that I have seen such as a Yin Yang, maybe an animal, etc - I guess that these are mainly for looks and don't actually get burned but they are wax and do gave a wick so they WILL get burned sometimes - so my question is exactly how do you go about wicking these? They are completely different from a normal round pillar and that is pretty much all I have ever read about as far as how to wick and what to look for in testing - thanks
  11. Are these boxes on your site yet? I can't seem to find them
  12. Got an email from Candles & Supplies saying that they have their Coconut Waxes back in stock with more on the way I personally do not use it but I know from reading here that many of you do and that there has been a lot of places out of stock so just wanted to share
