This is an update on my previous review. I poured a large batch of this at an 8% fragrance load in a 464/444 blend. I poured my FO in at 185F, stirred for a few minutes, and poured into my jars near 155F. I’m using the same technique as I always do and it never really results in any problems unless the ambient temp in the room I’m working in is low, which wasn’t the case last night. I’m guessing the FO had binding issues with my wax because it got very grainy and was pulling away from the jar in such a strange fashion. I wish I snapped a picture of it before I fixed them all. I ultimately stuck the reject candles in the oven at 170F to melt them all back down again then set them aside to cool. Now they’re looking much better but that was VERY strange to say the least, I’ve never seen it before!
Either way, my kitchen smells sooo good. I didn’t have any leaching this time and my batch is looking like it’s saved, so will I stop using this one? Absolutely not. It’s too good to give up on.
