  1. I went to the Northwood site to check them out - in browsing I noted that it would only show me the price for 1oz and no other sizes - since there was a "contact us" icon that pops up on every page I did so and explained the problem I was having and stated that I didn't know if this was a problem with their site or my Android phone - got a reply from them thanking me for my interest in them and assuring me they did have sizes other than just 1oz and telling me this was a known problem that affects both Android devices and some iPhones - I replied back that before I ordered 1oz sizes to test I needed to know the prices of the 1lb bottles as well as checking out their shipping costs to see what the final cost breakdown would be on my end (as I do with every single thing from every single site before I order) and that I was unable to do so on their site - got a reply back apologising for the inconvenience and suggesting I download another browser so I could use their site - I replied back that it was no inconvenience at all since I would just do business elsewhere and that I had never had any problem accessing any other site - did not receive another reply from them - so they tell me this is a known problem and their fix is for me to download another browser? No thanks, there are more than enough other suppliers for me

    Just scent recommendations

    If you like the Totally Scrumptious you had better stock up - I see where they are going to discontinue it and stated that they will not be bringing it back

  5. Hey, following up on a post that you made way back in June..............pls don't withdraw from the forum ...just saying..................

  6. I'm just thinking about the testing on these puppies - Ok, after 6,000 hours this CD wick seems to be tunneling a little bit - lets try the ECO now .......
  7. Once you get a stronger liquid dye you can make up very small batches of wax with just a smidgen of the dye (start with dipping the end of a toothpick into the dye and adding it to a very small amount of wax and repeat until you get the color you want) - You can then paint with this wax until it solidifies, then remelt it or make another tiny batch

    What do you think of this meeting?

    Yes ma'am I do - I know it was hard - I don't know that I could have handled it that well - I would have wanted to go confront them personally and ended up ranting and raving and ended up having to come up with bail money lol - luckily I have my best half here and she is able to keep me out of trouble most of the time

    What do you think of this meeting?

    Well done Trappeur - I personally feel that you handled this sad situation in a very professional manner - I am sorry you have had to deal with all this but at least you got one decent order out of them to help make up for some of the time you have spent on them - as others have stated they are going to crash and burn swiftly if they believe they will be able to crank out a ton of product and wholesale them as quickly and easily as they seem to think - keep your head up and this will all soon just be another lesson learned
  10. Interesting - thanks for posting that

    Vanilla and Discoloration

    As I have mentioned before I am unable physically (and financially) to do anything except read right now - I know the best way to learn is by doing but it is what it is and I am trying to learn what I can the only way that I can - My experience has mainly been with candles although I did play around with M&P a little bit - I did love the results of the M&P compared to off the shelf soap as did everyone whom I gifted it to - I do remember the discoloration of Pink Sugar to a dark brown which is pretty much my entire personal experience of discoloration in soap - Everything I make, be it candles or soap or whatever I do test - I thank you both for your comments - I like learning! What are some of the other variables besides Vanillin that Can affect discoloration?
  14. Several questions if you please - I know that Vanillin can cause discoloration but over time does it cause discoloration in smaller amounts? What I mean is I have seen Vanillin listed at say 0.3% (just an example as I don't have specific numbers in front of me at the moment) and also seen notes on that fragrance stating there was no discoloration for that particular fragrance - I know that Vanillin listed at 17% is going to look like a bar of Hershey's Chocolate if a stabilizer or colorant is not added but is there some "unwritten rule of thumb" as to a when a percentage of Vanillan in a fragrance will cause discoloration or do you just have to try it and for yourself and see? Also I know other variables can cause discoloration - what other variables can cause discoloration? Thanks
  15. Thank you! Definitely interested in this one
