What causes clouding when I pour gels?

The clouding of the gel can come from several different sources. It could be from the wax coating used on the pre-wick assembly, or some fragrances–even though gel compatible–can cause the gel to cloud. Finally, if you are using wax inserts they can melt, causing the gel to cloud. There are several ways to reduce the clouding. One is to use the highest temperature coating on your pre-wick assembly. (Candlewic uses one that is over 210 F.) Other ways to reduce clouding include making sure your fragrances are as clear as possible and trying a wax that has a higher melt point for the wax inserts.
