One of the exciting and challenging parts of running a small business is the task of deciding which new items to add to your line, or how to change things up in preparation for the upcoming season.
For our chandlers, we understand that it isn’t a simple task! There are so many considerations, whether you’re adding a new fragrance, changing a container line or even just adding another size to your existing line of products.
Our most recent addition to our fragrance line is Vanilla Woods. Our newest fragrances will have a red flag on the image. You can easily browse the newest TruScent fragrances if you sort by “New” in the drop down box. Don’t forget, all TruScent fragrances are available in 1oz sample sizes, and our wax is available in 5 lb samples sizes for your testing purposes.
We also recently reworked our wax case pricing. So, be sure to check out our new pricing.
While each chandler’s product line will be unique, a clean burn, a clean jar and a good throw are the basic characteristics that are expected of each candle.
An experienced chandler will tell you that it takes a tremendous amount of testing in order to arrive at the proper formula – wax type, fragrance, wick type & size, and container.
Even though there is still much testing required, we’ve tried to pull together some guidelines that should help get you started in the right direction. Documents specific to a product will usually be accessible at that product’s description page.
Wax Handling Sheets provide some basic details about pour temperature and handling for each type of wax that we carry.
Wax Properties Chart pulls characteristics of our waxes into 1 location to help you identify the wax that best suits your needs.
Wick Selection Chart provides recommendation on wicks based on the diameter of the container. If your container diameter varies or has distinct shoulders or a smaller opening than body, you may need to test a wider range of wicks.
TruScent Fragrance descriptions provide flashpoint as well as maximum % uses for Soap or Lotion applications, and Vanillin and/or Ethyl Vanillin percentages.
MSDS sheets are also available for download for your safety records.
