So far I like this wax - has a great smooth look and nice hot throw scent. I made a large 3 in jar and used the wick recommended Eco 8 and it tunneled right down the center. I see there a few people who are also having this issue. Anyone else have any suggestions?

So far so good with this wax! I am new to candle making, so I wasn't sure what to start with. I chose GB 464 and had a really hard time with it (even after pouring at cooler and cooler temperatures, cooling it more slowing my covering my pot, pouring slower, etc). Even after all that I was still getting rough tops and almost no hot throw. I did a little more research and decided to try IGI 6006. It's so much better and I think it's easier to handle than soy. I just made a batch of Dragon's Blood candles. They are so smooth and pretty. The cold throw is amazing and it holds color beautifully. I have to wait until tomorrow to light one, so not sure how the hot throw is yet, but I have a good feeling this will be my go to wax! Definitely sticking with this one!

I must say I started with pure soy and I just could not perfect the look of my candles no matter what I did. I started using IGI 6006 and I have the best looking candles and the hot throw is unbelievable and the cold throw is also just as great. I've had customers tell me "when I walked into my house I thought I had forgot to turn the candle off" because the cold throw is that good. And when people tell me how great their purchase was just makes me feel great!

This wax works perfectly; however, we're still trying to experiment on the wicks. We're using a 3" container and the CS recommendation is ECO 2 - ECO 8. The ECO 2 is too small and the ECO 8 is also a bit small and produces a bit too much soot to my liking.
We also tried ALL the other brands and find that some soot (particularly LX and ECO). Anyone else experience this?
Any wick suggestions would be helpful. So far, we're liking HTP 104 (HTP 126 produces a better pool but wick flickers a bit too much and produces soot), RRD55 (good pool but a bit of flickering and mushrooming) and now trying CSN 16 (as CSN 14 is a bit too small).
Any help would be great!!!

I don't know why, but when I was using the wick guide, I searched for 4' or larger. I use 16oz mason jars, and the perfect wick is the Eco 2 6". This is still by far the best wax I've ever laid my little fingers on. I recommend it to anyone who's just starting out, or is a candle veteran.

I'm loving this wax! It's so easy to separate, and what
Wax that stays on my hands can be rubbed in for baby soft hands!
I do however need to repour once because of small dips in the top.
I definitely recommend this wax for all jar candle makers.
I still can't find the perfect wick. I tried csn 14, but got a
Small amount of tunneling. I use a 16oz mason, and if
Anyone has any suggestions on wick, please email me

I live in a cold foggy forever-drizzling climate, and spent months trying to force my soy candles to look perfect despite the climate. They improved dramatically, but there were still so many aesthetic issues. I finally decided to give IGI 6006 a try, and every candle I've made since the switch is PERFECT! The wick suggested by CandleScience was likewise the exact right choice. The hot throw is wonderful, the appearance is beautiful, I am never going back to pure soy.

Wonderful wax; consistent, with none of the issues you get from pure soy, i.e., frosting, mottled tops, adhesion. Holds color very well with even the palest of shades and the scent throw is excellent. Very long and even burning clean candle!

This wax is great. Really easy to work. Beautiful looking candles, smooth, and great color. However, made really long burning candles. More than 4 hrs burning and still no burning even. I try whisper jar with light color Eco10 & Eco12 1.5oz FO per pound.
