  1. Quick question about FO and wicks/wax. Ive tried a CSN14 in IGI 6006(parasoy) and have found that it burns really well other than a few things. It mushrooms and soots a bit a bit but also tunnels. I know that too small of a wick can cause the tunneling but I've read that soot and mushrooming identifies too large a wick. I am using 8.5% FO (as IGI 6006 says 10% is max). My question is, if I lower my FO % will this decrease the sooting and mushrooming? Also, will my HT be greatly affected? I'm not sure how much lower to go but I was considering trying 7.5%-8%. Ive ordered a size up just to see the difference and will be trying them this weekend. thank you!
  2. My setup is a 16oz country comfort glass jar double wicked with zinc core 44-32-18, using 6006 wax with mostly candle science or natures garden FO. I have noticed extreme sooting. It's on my ceiling, walls, when I blow my nose I have soot in my nose. I keep the wicks trimmed to 1/8-1/4" and if I go any smaller in wicks they don't stay lit. It's so frustrating because now I'm sitting on about 100 candles that I don't want to burn or sell. The jars themselves aren't getting sooted, it just ends up everywhere else.
  3. What types of soy waxes (with identifying numbers) are best to avoid cracks during cold throw and also has a great scent throw? Where do you purchase from?
