  1. CDNs are not even close to CSNs. I don't use them but I have tested them.
  2. When I tried the RRDs the wicks turned into huge carbon balls. Sometimes so bad the flame would go out. That was at 6% FO. Maybe playing with the FO percentage might help.
  3. WHAT THE H**L!!!! Thanks a bunch CS! I just went to order some and they are out of stock. I did get some CSN7s. I guess I will have to order from the UK!!!!
  4. They have some really good fragrances. I use Fraiser Fir, Cracklin' Birch, Farmhouse Christmas, Sweet Grace and I have a few samples I made for testing but letting them cure.
  5. I tried Gooseberry Gardens in palm wax and it was not too bad. It filled up my medium size bedroom but I don't think it would fill up a larger space. It smells just like the name says....a berry scent. I got a sniffie of the River Birch and it smells good OOB but have not put it in wax yet. I never tried the Raspberry Blitz.
  6. I saw they have a few new FOs but have not tried them yet. Vanilla Voodoo is good but it's not a hit you in the face FO. More subtle for me in palm wax.
  7. I never noticed having to wick up on everything from them. There might have been a couple but nothing noticeable.
  8. I like Tall Grass from Keystone. It used to be a Peak oil. I have to up the percentage a little for the HT but it works. It is not a big seller in my area but the ones that like it really like it.
  9. I am still in the process of using up the old ones, but they are now gone. I have to start making candles again next week ans will be using them. I will post my opinion I guess. Lol!
  10. I have this same problem with palm wax candles. I start them out at 1/8 inch and tell all of my customers to trim to 1/8 inch. They work a lot better that way.
  11. If I remember right you have to be a member for a week and have a certain amount of posts under your belt before you can get in to the Classifieds forum. My numbers might be wrong. It have been so long.
  12. Interesting! Then they must just screw up once in a while and not make it right.
  13. I do not make lotions or any other type of bath and body product. But I do buy them. Once in a while I will buy a bottle of lotion and as time goes on and I get towards the bottom of the container the lotion gets very runny and doesn't seem to work as good. And sometimes it will not be every container from the same maker. Can someone tell me why this happens? Thank you.
  14. Yes, make sure the bottom of the jar is clean. I always use the wick stickers and never had any problems.
