Welcome McSporran! Really glad you have joined.
Hopefully soon there will be some more chandlers to chat with. I have tried my hand at soy candles, both pillar and container. They burned well. Some scents "threw" and some didn't. None ever sold at market, darn it. They were priced more economically than those in big box stores, but alas, no one bought them. Maybe I should have raised the price.
I am inspired, now that there is a chandler here, to try making some again. In the morning I am going out to my "shed" to root through all my supplies for holiday scents and colorants. I'll keep you posted!
