Joy Wax- 1 CASE


Joy Wax - 1 Case

A wonderful combination of soy wax, other vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and proprietary ingredients.  Available only at Natures Garden! 

Joy Wax tm comes to you neatly packaged in slabs, all separated by wax paper.  54-60 lbs. per case.  We're so HAPPY about Joy Wax tm...we're doing a Joy Dance!! Joy Wax tm is only sold at Natures Garden. We have helped create a wonderful container candle wax that provides excellent cold and hot scent throw without any curing time necessary. Joy Wax holds more fragrance than most waxes on the market; without seepage. Joy Wax clings nicely to the sides of jars, and has a nice creamy, glossy appearance. Joy Wax requires that you pour only once in most jars, allows you to create candles rich in color, and has a wonderful melt pool. You do not have to add any additives to joy wax for it to perform wonderfully.

Note:  We personally test each batch of joy wax that is manufactured for us to ensure quality.  We test each batch using 100% joy wax, color, fragrance oil, and CD wicking.    However, since wax can differ from batch to batch, joy wax may vary on its level of creaminess.  In the event that joy wax is less creamy than a previous batch, we suggest that you add 1 ounce of crisco shortening per pound of joy wax.  Crisco is a low melt point soy product.  This will allow the wax to cling better to your jars, and will reduce the incidence of frosting and cracking of the wax. 

Directions for use: Melt joy wax (using a double-boiler method) to 200F. Add coloring to your specifications. Drop the temperature to 175-170F. Add 1 ounce of fragrance oil per pound of joy wax. Pour into containers at 165-160F. Wick your containers, and allow to cool at room temperature. We have found that CD wicks work the best in this wax, however, HTP, Zinc, Hemp and Performa wicks may also be used with great success. As with any wax, trim your wicks before lighting candles. We invite you to try our Joy Wax, put it to the test against your regular wax, and SMELL and SELL the difference! You too will want to do a JOY DANCE! 

Joy wax may differ from batch to batch.  All wax sales are final; we do not accept returns, and we do not offer replacements for any waxes we sell.  Please be aware of this when ordering.  There will be no exceptions.

NOTE:  When ordering large quantities of wax, our shopping cart may not reflect the correct shipping estimates.  You are charged exactly what UPS charges us for shipping.  This may require us to adjust your billing before we charge your credit card.  When ordering 40 or more cases of wax, your order will be shipped via LTL Freight, and you will be charged according to their shipping costs

Previously great wax... Now horrible problems

Reviewer: A viewer from Maple Heights, OH US 11/22/06

I've been using this wax for nearly 3 years. Recently I purchased a case, and I am unable to make a candle that comes out looking even sellable. Every candle turns up white patches and sometimes most of the candle is covered with them. Nothing i've tried fixed this... heating jars, cooling slowly, less fragrance, crisco.. left with 40 pounds unusable wax, and 20 pounds of candles.

Reviewer: A viewer from Burbank, CA US 01/21/13

I am very disappointed in this wax. first problem i have is the wax does not burn clean it leaves residue on the walls of the jars. i called customer service and have not heard back from anyone! I love NG oils but the customer service and knowledge about their wax blend is just not satisfactory. The other problem i have with this wax is that there is no scent throw at all! The blend is not consistant. i do however like the smooth look of the tops of the candles. very nice. but im sure my customers would like to smell the candles as well. This is not a repurchase for me! No Joy from this wax!

I'm in love

Reviewer: A viewer from Sacramento, CA US 11/08/05

After trying numerous waxes, joy wax out performs them all. No additives needed, excellent throw, no fuss. I'm in love!

Nice wax, very sticky

Reviewer: A viewer from Michigan 09/01/05

This wax slices like butter, but I mix it with 100% soy flakes in order to bring up the percent of vegetable wax in the mix. Plus, it's an extremely sticky wax, so the extra soy really helps harden it up so the candle lasts longer. Scent throw is good in all the scents I tested in this wax.

Problems with Zinc Wicks

Reviewer: A viewer from Wheeling, WV US 12/31/05

I love Joy Wax. It is awesome and creamy. I am in agreement with Chris regarding the zinc wicking. I, also, keep getting a hole in the center of the pint size or smaller jars. I don't get smoke but I keep getting carbon build up on all the candles. Any suggestions?

Not as good as expected

Reviewer: A viewer from West Jordan, UT US 03/23/13

I get beautiful looking tops but no matter what I do I cant get a good hot throw using Nature's Gardens FO and others too. I use the wicks recommended but horrible hot throw. I am now mixing it with GB464 and seems to work better. Very disappointed. I made one batch with this wax and another with GB brand, same container same FO. This one NO hot throw at all the other strong hot throw. Wish I could get it to work because the tops are very smooth and nice. Any suggestions Nature's Garden or other users?? Following instructions to the T

Never again

Reviewer: A viewer from Alma, MI US 11/28/08

Based on the negative reviews I read here, I bought some container wax from another company. Bad, bad mistake. The candles turned out terrible - mottled with ugly frosty patches. I came back to joy wax and once again my candles are beautiful. I'm not sure what is going on with other people's experiences but I wish I had never switched. It was an expensive mistake.

Not the same any more

Reviewer: A viewer from Erie, PA US 03/20/09

I mixed the soy container wax and the Joy Wax 50/50 for several years and had creamy, perfect candles every time. The last couple times I bought the Joy Wax I ended up with terrible looking candles. Lots of white spots, lines, cracking, etc. which I thought at first was caused by bad batches of soy wax. Nothing I did helped improve them. Then I started experimenting and found it was the Joy Wax not the soy causing the problems. I also had trouble with some of it having water in it like someone else did. At first I heard popping noises when it was melting in the pot (like when you drop water on a hot surface and you hear a sizzling sound) and didn't know what it was. I switched over and tried a slab of the Wow Wax and it works better, but with it being a paraffin blend, I lost my more natural wax blend from the Joy/soy mix. I would love to go back to the Joy wax that I had so much success with for so many years, but I am afraid to purchase it again not only to end up wasting money but having bad candles as an end result.

whole in center

Reviewer: A viewer from Norfolk, NE US 01/02/06

I love the joy wax. Does anyone know what do with the whole in the middle of the pt. jars and smaller ones? I have noticed alot of people have the problem. I use the blow dryer but it really takes a lot of time to do this. Just wondering if anyone else has a better idea?

Awesome Product

Reviewer: A viewer from Chicago, IL US 06/08/14

I have been using Joy Wax for years now. It is the only wax I will ever use! Awesome scent throw and it looks great (no need to do a second pour.) I highly recommend this product.
