  1. Hello everybody, I just came across this forum and I‘m so glad! Hoping ya‘ll would be so kind to help me with an issue I have been having. The wax I‘m using is a coco and rapeseed blend (RCX if somebody is familiar), it‘s been working great (just had to get used to the irregular, bumpy surface after burning the candle, which I have been told is normal for vegetable waxes? -please correct me if I‘m wrong, I was only familiar with burning paraffin waxes prior) The scent throw is great both hot and cold, melt pool diameter and depth is good, minimal to no mushrooming when using the right wick size, nice safe flame height, no tunneling, no sooting or smoking, acceptable amount of after glow when the candle is extinguished, the burning temperature is good, everything is great- except for the dreaded, god awful FLICKERING. I‘ve tried different types of wicks suggested by the manufacturer with CL being most recommend, VRL and V wicks, in all different sizes to optimize burn qualities, different fragrances and FO percentages (6%, 8%, 10%) and the issue of flickering still arises every time. However I noticed, that this starts when the candle has burned about halfway through the container, so when it‘s still pretty full, flickering isn‘t an issue, but when it‘s ‚emptied‘ more is when the flickering becomes a problem. I was thinking that it might be due to the containers I‘m using, could that be a possibility? That there isn‘t enough oxygen feeding the flame and therefor the flame is flickering? I‘ve attached pictures of the jars I‘m using, maybe the opening isn’t wide enough.. I would be really appreciative if anyone might have a solution for me. thank you!
  2. Hey everyone! I normally wouldn't post this kind of thing but I figured it soy and coconut wax would best be used by all of you. I am moving in a couple weeks and do not feel like lugging my wax with me. I have 49lbs of NatureWax Coconut 2 and 9lbs of Golden Brands 464. I live in Lancaster, PA. If interested, swing a text at 717-682-7108!
  3. Has anyone heard of or tried this wax? I stumbled upon it on Aztec's Facebook page. Aztec claims to be the only company that has it. An IGI custom blend? I'm a little skeptical. The congeal point is 128F, which seems higher than the coconut waxes already out there. Aztec states there is no soy in it and that it is vegetable based. However, as we've found out, not all coconut waxes are petro-free. I wonder if it's harder and has a higher melting point than the other coconut waxes. Edit: I just realized the Aztec post was made two days ago. Well, then, since no one is likely to have used it, does anyone have any tidbits of information about it they may have heard or read somewhere?
  4. Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. I have been working away from soy a bit and going to a coconut base. I know there are a ton of people on here experimenting with other waxes than soy. I just wanted to get an idea of what your findings are if you are willing to share! The other day I ordered the Naturewax Coconut 2..coconut 98%, soy 2%. -Obviously, they are a bit soft after they set for a day. What's the type of wax and % are you using to harden the wax. Is it affecting your HT? -I used eco 4,6,8 and some very small wooden wicks to test. Seeing as coconut takes a couple days to set, I have not burned them yet. What wicks have you found work with your cocosoy blends? -My jars I have them in are the 4oz and 9oz amber jars from Fillmore Containers As a sidenote- I ordered the coffeehouse and toasted marshmellow FO from RE and hollllllllllly moley am I excited to use those, maybe even blend them????
  5. Hi guys! Recently candle science discontinued their island coconut fragrance oil. Now I need a new coconut fragrance oil to replace it. I use 464 soy wax so please suggest oils that would work with soy. Thank you so much for your help.
  6. I'm sure this has been asked but I'm having a hard time finding a good coconut. I have Sweet coconut from Tennessee but haven't put it in wax yet so I may already have the perfect one! LOL! I'm placing an order with RE today and they have several coconut FO's. Has anyone used theirs? I guess I really want one that smells like coconut suntan lotion. Thanks!
