    Default Candle wax catching fire!

    Hello all, I have been making soy wax candlea for about a year. I use an eco blend, and add palm stearin and essential oils. They usually burn well. The last week the wax has been catching fire when I might the wick. Before long there is a huge flame and the Tea light case catches flame and melts. I have a Christmas market in a week and am starting to really panic. Has this happened to anyone else? Please help!

    perhaps the wicks are substandard?
