    Soap newbie question

    I don't use Bramblebery's calculator. I added up your oils and you have 32 ounces of oils that is 2 lbs you need 48 ounces of oils for 3 pounds. I don't count water amount and weight for my mold. try calculation in Soapcalc 9 and put in 48 ounces of oils and use your percentages in your recipe.

    Burn tests

    Could be possible that the supplier got the sizes mixed up since they are so close in diameter and size.

    Burn tests

    Don't judge a candle on the first second or third burn burn it all the way down to 1/2 inch wax left in the jar and than decide which one is the better.
