Testing Questions

Recommended Posts

1. I've got some 1 oz samples from Peak's and I would like to test 2 different kinds of waxes with the scents. Should I use 1/2 oz of FO to one kind of wax and 1/2 oz to another? Can you get an accurate test doing it this way? :embarasse

2. How many testers of each FO do you test? (i.e. once you get the wick you think is right do you test another one to be sure it is right.)

I want to do some testing but don't want to order bigger bottles of scent til I know whether it has good hot throw etc. and whether I like it or not.

Sure, you can do that. If you go by the standard 1oz per pound of wax, just use 1/2oz per 1/2lb of wax. Should work just fine! When I test, I pour all sizes in one scent. Then I test burn them all. Once I finally get the right burn, I make note of it and make that particular candle the same way every time! HTH
