Golden Foods Soy Wax 444- 10 Pounds

Golden Foods Soy Wax 444- 10 Pounds
Description:

Golden Foods soy wax 444-  10 pound bag. 

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.

5 out of 5 stars Wonderful Wax 07/11/2014
Reviewer: Mandi Roxey from Beverly Hills, FL US
I've always used this wax, so I can't really compare it to others, but I love how easy it is to use. The flakes make weighing out the wax super easy, the wax melts beautiful and holds scent perfectly. There's some frosting on the top, but that's just because it's soy. I use a heat gun on the top and it helps even it out nicely. I love this wax!

We made candles for Christmas... soy wax 444 melted beautifully, poured neatly, and held fragrances beautifully! It cools to a beautiful frosty white, so add extra colorant to be sure your candles are vibrant and beautiful as they can be!

Reviewer: Gary Shove from Hartwick, NY US
First time using soy wax. Scents hot and cold seem a little better than paraffin wax. Great one pour wax. Might give five stars if I ever figure out wicking.
