    what does it mean when they talk about frosting?

  • CandleScience says:

    The flashpoint is the temperature at which a fragrance can combust if exposed to open flame or spark. Adding fragrance oil to wax that is above the flashpoint will not cause it to combust. With fragrance at room temperature and no flame there is no cause for concern.

  • Miki Boteler says:

    When your fragrance oils says flash point 200 degrees etc, what does that mean? Do you add the fragrance oils at that temp? I noticed some of your fragrances have flash points of 185-200. I wanna start making my own candles as well!

  • Lisa Gonzales says:

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge about making candles this is my first time of making candles and I really appreciate your videos

  • CandleScience says:

    Because of the low melt point of soy wax, soy candles tend to burn slower, however using the correct wick can affect the burn time.

  • CandleScience says:

    Any stainless steel pot or can can be used, but we would recommend using a double boiler. For cleaning the pitcher, it is best to wipe down the inside of the container with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol while the container is still hot.

  • CandleScience says:

    For issues relating to poor scent throw and bad tops we would first recommend adding any fragrance oil at 185 degree and pouring at the lowest temperature possible. This should improve the scent throw and the finish on the tops of the candles.

  • CandleScience says:

    Yes, you can. The flashpoint is the temperature at which a fragrance can combust if exposed to open flame or spark. Adding fragrance oil to wax that is above the flashpoint will not cause it to combust. With fragrance at room temperature and no flame there is no cause for concern.

  • CandleScience says:

    For accuracy we would recommend always weighting your wax out with a scale. We offer scales through our site or you can get one at your local department store.

    how many cups of wax would make 1 pound? I dont have a scale

  • RavenShadowhawk18 says:

    Hi! Can you mix the fragrance in the wax when its 180 even if the flashpoint for the fragrance is lower than 180?

  • DesertMoonBathNBody says:

    If using a larger container should you pour any hotter or the same. I am not having luck with the 464 giving good throw and bad tops, tried various pour temps and FO percentages. Very discouraged have invested a lot of money and not working out. I can’t anyone to respond to my email or FB questions.

  • Mary Walton says:

  • aebcrc says:

    Thanks for making a calm, no-frills video on candle making. Very well done, and it is greatly appreciated.

  • Martha Lee says:

    If you decide not to buy the pitcher, what kind of pot/pan would you recommend using and how would you remove all the wax out for later use? and is it safe to heat the wax on a stove?
