  • New candle maker, discolouring in soy wax

    Hi all, fairly new candle maker here.
    I have made a recent batch of candles. I use tins and this batch has discoloured during the curing process. It is looking orange all around the edges. I do not use colourings, just fragrance oils so I am guessing the discolouration must be from the oil?. I always stir for two minutes. I am wondering could this be due to the temperature I am adding the oil? I am just following the manufacturers instructions. Any ideas?
    Many thanks!

    Hi, we are a bit short on candle makers at the minute, might I suggest you contact Kev or Peta Partner at “Making your own candles dot co dot uk”. Kev is a member of the forum although not a regular poster but very knowledgeable.

        Hi, the forum does not allow links to comparison sites as they usually lead to a sales page, also not allowed.
