Palm wax


Recommended Posts

Well I decided today to pull out my sample box of Palm Wax (it's been sitting on a shelf for months and months because I...well was a bit intimidated by it LOL! Anyways this was my first ever attempt at any kind of pillars (I only make soy containers and wax melts) It's cooling right now as we speak and yes I am overly anxious to take it out of the mold to see what it ended up looking like but am trying to keep myself busy so I don't take it out of the mold to soon (I'll post a pic later if it turns out)

Ok anyways here's my questions

First...how do I know when it IS ready to come out of the mold????? It's driving me crazy....I mean I figure when the mold doesnt feel warm anymore but any kind of time frame? like should I just wait til late tonight or tomorrow morning?

Second... Does Palm wax need to cure like soy? I tried looking in past posts and I seen one person say it needs to cure for a looooong time and that has always been a discussed topic with soy...some say 3-5 days and some say 3 weeks with soy and with my soy it can ranges from 3 days to 3 weeks depending on the FO so is it the same with palm and which FO you use to determin curing time?

And Lastly....Any suggestions to which wick I should start off with? I have Eco's, HTP's and some RRD's and I think some Cotton core wicks

The pillar is a round 3x4.5

Thank you so much for your help:bow:

I would wait till it's completely cool to take it out, say tomorrow morning. I use eco wicks in my candles...love them. I don't know what others have found out, but my palm doesn't seem to need to cure at all. I burn them right away, and they smell great. They do increase in smell with time though. HTH

No I didn't use any steric, it did slide right out nicely. I may try burning it tomorrow....question: If it doesnt burn right the first time which I know it won't, do I just pull the wick out and put in another and burn again or should I level it or what do I do so I know the correct results with each wick I try?
