Manufacturer suggestion for candle making with Coco Extreme
- Heat Apricot Extreme to 180F
- Add scent and color
- Stir well
- Pour between 160 - 170F
Candle Cocoon Note: Some scents with higher flashpoints may not bind well at this lower 170F temperature. If you notice your scent is not giving great hot throw you will either need to either heat the Coco Extreme to 190F or heat the scent a bit before adding to the Coco Extreme. Experimentation is required. Heating the wax higher may cause rough tops that can be smoothed with a heat gun.
NOTE: Do to the natural properties of this product small amounts of shell/husk may still be present in wax. Unfortunately these pieces will fall to the bottom of the candle which may be your top. Solutions - use a fine mesh strainer when pouring or wait until debris has settled and take from top portion of wax.
Also, color may vary from batch to batch as this is a natural product. It doesn't affect the burn.
