Warm Vs Cold Curing, Final Test


Recommended Posts

The test was done using 8oz tins with 6006 and Lemon Verbena FO from FC. One candle was refrigerated while the other was in the garage at around 87. I burned the candles after two weeks cure time and posted the results. They seemed promising, but after an additional three weeks of cure time I could not see, or smell, any appreciable difference. Of course this is just one test and the results are purely subjective. I certainly expected to see a difference, I even wanted to see a difference. So, given my bias I think it is safe to say that temperature is probably not a major factor in candle curing.

So did the refrigerated one shrink so much that only the wick was holding it in the can?

 

I set them out over night so they were both at room temp, when I opened them and there was no difference.
