Melt pool color


Recommended Posts

I know I've read about this but did a search and didn't come up with anything.

On a couple of fragrances I'm trying, after burning when the melt pool cools,

it's a different color than the rest of the candle. For example, one ivory colored candle has a slight green hue to top now. What causes this? Am I not mixing it enough? or does it just happen with some fo's?

I've noticed this with different fos. Also, if I over wick a container, it seems the heat will scorch the top layer of wax, especially in white or ivory ones. Just the nature of the beast I guess.

That explains what happened to my last test candle...and confirms it was over wicked....Thanks!
