How to Make
STEP #1 You
will only need a few simple tools, of which all
can usually be found in your
kitchen. A metal spoon,
a scale, a measuring cup,
and a crock pot with a
thermostat or a stovetop pan
and a thermometer.
STEP #2 Ingredients:Mineral
Oil, CP9000 Resin, Wick and
base, Fragrance and
color. (optional). Measure ingredients as
follows. 2 Fluid Cups mineral
oil, 25 Grams CP9000 Resin.
Mix and allow to set at room
temprature for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
STEP #3 Begin
heating ingredients slowly bringing to
200-210 degrees F (Never
exceed 220*F)and hold at this temp for
1 hour or
until the gel is completly
smooth flowing. The consistancy of corn syrup.
STEP #4 Be
sure to never let the temprature exceed
220 degrees as this may scorch
the gel. If gel does scorch
it is worthless and no amount
of fragrance can save it. Give up and start over.
STEP #5 Stir
the mixture often while cooking to to assure
proper mixture. If you dont
have a crock pot be sure to watch
your temp on a thermometer.
The gel may smoke slightly during the
process, this is not a cause
for alarm unless smoke is excessive.
before you are ready to pour add fragrance
to suit (do not exceed 3%)
as this will lower your
flash point to
an unsafe level.
Color should be added now
