Golden Foods Soy Wax 464- 1 CASE

Golden Foods Soy Wax 464- 1 CASE
Description:

This wax is Golden Food's Soy Wax 464.  A case of soy wax is 50 pounds.

Directions and information:  Heat soy wax to 185 degrees F.  Add coloring.  Add 1.5 oz. of Natures Garden concentrated fragrance oil of your choice, stir.    Heavier fragrances (fragrances with higher flash points) can be added at 185 degrees F.  Lighter fragrances (fragrances with lower flash points) such as citrus type fragrances, should be added at around 160 degrees F.  Allow your soy wax to cool at room temp until it reaches 110 degrees F.  Your wax will be slightly slushy in appearance.  Pour soy wax at this temperature into candle containers.  Allow to set up at room temp.

Note:  Do not get your soy wax hotter than 200 degrees F or it may begin to discolor.  It used to be thought that adding fragrance to soy wax at a low temperature would prevent it from evaporating out of the wax prematurely (we used to suggest adding fragrance to soy wax at 130 degrees F).  However, our testing has shown us that fragrance needs to be added at a hotter temperature so that the fragrance properly binds with the soy wax.  Heavier fragrances containing vanilla can be added to the hot soy wax at around 185 degrees F; while we suggest adding lighter, lower flash point fragrances such as citrus type fragrances, at 160 degrees F.  Citrus type fragrances can break down at high temps; this is why we suggest adding them to the hot wax at this lower temp.

Soy Wax has a natural frosting look.  In order to reduce this frosting look on the tops of your candles, apply heat to finished candles with a hot hair dryer.

4 out of 5 stars I Love this wax 12/09/2013
Reviewer: Michelle B. from Baltimore, MD US
This wax is wonderful. I have been testing and lightly selling for over a year now. And I have tried other waxes but I love the scent throw on this. I gave it 4 stars only because it does need a good week maybe 2 to get a good cure.
5 out of 5 stars Awesome! 09/10/2013
Reviewer: A viewer from Gilmanton, NH US
This wax throws scent wonderfully as long as you keep it (standard for soy) at a minimum of 1.5 ounces per pound. It can hold up to a 12% fragrance load which is nice so you can increase it from there for lighter scents. Make sure to follow instructions. Soy wax likes to be kept cool and is easiest to work with when it is cool. Always heat low, add fragrance around 150-160, stir stir stir, preheat containers, and then pour at the recommended temp any deviation from this and you will need your heat gun! So happy NG carries this, they are the fastest shippers and their price including shipping has been the most reasonable for me. I will continue to come back!
5 out of 5 stars The only wax I will use 07/08/2013
Reviewer: Jennifer Schnittker from Butler, PA US
I love this wax, what a wonderful throw it has cold and hot. Pretty tops-well most of the time. When I do not get the pretty tops, simply go over it with a heat gun!! Highly recommend this
5 out of 5 stars 1st time making candles 03/15/2013
Reviewer: Sherry: XOXO's by Sherry Rene from Jackson, MO US
I made my first round of candles and choose this type to start with. I'm very thrilled with how this wax worked! It melted down faster than I had thought. It poured up very easy and I can really smell the scent I had added. Love it!

Reviewer: A viewer from Wappapello, MO US
The best wax. Been making candles for over a year and this is the only wax I use. I buy it by the case everytime. I wish there was more of a bulk discount if I bought more cases at a time

5 out of 5 stars The only wax I use 07/03/2012
Reviewer: Nina Walker from Louisville, KY US
I love this blend. I refuse to use any other blend. I've gotten the pouring just right on this so that I don't have a messed up top and I love it. I always buy it by the case.
4 out of 5 stars Good Container Wax 05/20/2011
Reviewer: B. Phillips from Streetsboro, OH US
Great burn time for this wax, throws scent and shows color great. The tarts were too soft to sell. I would recommend for container candles.
