Golden Foods Soy Wax 464- 1 CASE


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.

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!
