  1. In all the stuff I've been reading and hearing from people about stearic, I've somehow missed the part about When to add it to the process. Is it at the start with the unmelted paraffin for pillars? Is it after the melt? At the end? At a certain temperature? Thanks everyone, Q
  2. At what point in your pillar making journey with paraffin, do you know it's time to consider some sort of additives are needed? Stearic acid perhaps? I've tried to do everything in a step-by-step, scientific method type of way. I'm taking notes, etc. I can't seem to get any sort of consistent results. Really puzzled as to what should be done next. Q
  3. Here is a link to my YouTube channel with all 25+ additives and combos of a couple additives so you can see for yourself how a pinch of something or a sub of something for water can make a big difference. https://youtube.com/..._1jhgyNHoYrE-NA Make sure to hit the Videos link at the top to see a list of all the videos numbered from 1-26 if you want to see more than the 3-4 youtube pulls in the quick query. Sink Test Quickie Links: 1 & 1A) No adds or subs (basic recipe: control bars one at 5% SF and one at 8% sf) ~1a Sink Test Video Control Sink Video 2) Sodium Lactate .25 oz/ppo ~ Sink Test Video 3) Sugar (granular) 1 TBSP/ppo ~Sink Test Video 4) Honey 1 TBSP/ppo Sink Test Video 5) Silk ~ N/A 6) Rosin - Sink Test Video 7) Bentonite Clay Sink Test Video 8) Tetrasodium EDTA Sink Test Video 9) Goats' Milk subbed for all the water (used powdered) ~Sink Test Video 10) Aloe juice subbed for all the water ~Sink Test Video 11 & 11a) Coconut Milk subbed for all the water SD note:(canned AND powdered) 11 Sink Test Video 11a Sink Test Video 12) Beer 12 oz subbed for an equal amount of the water Sink Test Video 13) Powdered - Replaced with Fresh Goat Milk ~ Sink Test Video 14) Evaporated Milk (the stuff in the cans) ~ Sink Test Video 15) Powdered Sugar (1 TBS PPO Used)~Sink Test Video 16) Kaolin Sink Test Video 17) Cetyl Alcohol ~ Sink Test Video 18) Beeswax (not necessarily a lather enhancer, but some claim it changes/decreases the lathering properties.) 19) Oat Milk Sink Test Video 20) Yogurt ~ Sink Test Video 21) Sorbitol ~ Sink Test Video 22) Sodium Citrate ~ Sink Test Video 23) PKO sub for Coconut-Voluntary Sink Test Video 24) Kefir ~ Sink Test Video 25) Sodium Citrate and Sorbitol ~ Sink Test Video Conclusion: Yes. Additives can make a big difference in both enhancing and decreasing lather. Sometimes less is more.
  4. Hi. Does anyone know if 444 works for melts and whether it needs additives? Thank you for any advice ?
  5. For those of you that use soy additives, what do you use? I am trying to increase the frangrance oil load in c-3 for use in tarts. Thanks so much!
  6. Do you all use additives to improve the HT and overall performance of the candles? If so, which one and why? Thanks guys
