Does it help


Recommended Posts

Here's some info from the NG website:

Petrolatum is added to wax to increase its oil content and make it creamier so that it will adhere to containers. This also aids in reducing the wax melting point. We use 1-2 oz. of crisco shortening per pound of single pour wax to achieve a better scent throw. We have found that the crisco works better in some container waxes than the petrolatum does. If you would like to achieve a mottling effect to your candles, add 3 Tablespoons of mineral oil per 1 lb. of wax. Pour at 160 degrees, and do not use a water bath to cool the candles.
