From Barbara: Thank you so much for your information. I have had so much fun today, and am so excited! It was just as easy as you said. I got the black cherry scent and it smells wonderful! I had to go to my local craft store to get the dye and it was a little bitty bottle and I used most of it today. I got my soy chips and scent and wicks from Bittercreeksouth off the internet

The ball on the tip of the wick usually indicates incomplete combustion. This could be that there are incombustibles in the soy wax, or the wick is too big and the wax is burning too quickly (therefore not burning completely). I have had the same thing happen to my candles from time to time. Finding the perfect wick size for your containers can be trying at times, but definitely the most difficult part of the hobby!
