Wick Testing Soy Bliss / CB2 Wax & Zinc Wicks

I'm currently testing Soy Bliss / CB 2 candle wax with Zinc candle wicks.  I'm hoping that this will be helpful to some when narrowing down which wicks to use.  Feel free to adjust based on your wax/vessel/fragrance oil combo.  I'm using a vessel that's 3-1/8" inner diameter at the top, so if yours is smaller, you will want to wick down.  It's best to test a couple wick sizes in a few wick series or brands to see what you like the best!  Feel free to reach out to me anytime if you have any questions at all.  I'm here to help. 

Zinc core wicks have a unique construction that provides maximum rigidity in a wide variety of candle waxes.  The Zinc Core's jacket design is 100% all-natural and maintains unmatched rigidity in the molten wax pool.  Zinc Core wicks are cotton braids with an inner zinc core (no lead alloys).  Zinc core wicks are cooler burning reduce soot and mushrooming.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are Zinc 44-32-18 (single wick), Zinc 51-32-18 (single wick), and Zinc 60-44-18 (single wick).  I'm using Warm Sugar Cookie fragrance oil at 9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them. I will keep you updated!  

If you've found a combination that works for you, please feel free to share your results below.
