Golden Foods Soy Wax 464- 10 Pounds

Golden Foods Soy Wax 464- 10 Pounds
Description:

Golden Foods soy wax 464-  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.

4 out of 5 stars Wax and Tarts 03/03/2014
Reviewer: Simone Musil from PHILADELPHIA, PA US
I ordered this wax to make tarts with. I am used to using IGI 6006 Para/Soy Wax! I hope this wax turns out good for tarts. I know when I make candles with this wax they come out beautifully. I love all your fragrance oils too. You are the ONLY company that has different types that has great scents and great prices too. I'm in love with your fragrance oils, all of them!! Thanks so much Nature's Garden for your wonderful products. Anyone who has made tarts with this wax please let me know how they come out and how you made them? Did you wait for wax to cool to 110 degrees or pour hot? Thanks
4 out of 5 stars Great Potential 07/31/2013
Reviewer: WisteriaCA from Lancaster, CA US
I made 2 dozen tea light candles with this wax. The candles came out a bit slushy looking ( as mentioned in the description). I will try using the hair dryer to even out the texture and will also pour at a different temperature. Besides that, the wax is very easy to melt in my double broiler and has a very smooth appearance when melted. I can't wait to try this wax in a tart recipe. I think this wax has great potential.
5 out of 5 stars Love It !!!!!! 07/08/2013
Reviewer: Joy Henderson from Bronx, NY US
I've been making candles for years! And this is my first shoot at the soy, and I must say I am in love after first pour! It pours perfectly no reheating tops or any thing they look great!
5 out of 5 stars Great for wax tarts 05/11/2013
Reviewer: Onita Mangini from Massillon, Ohio US
I only make wax tarts, but I use to make candles. Did not care for this in candle making, but for wax tarts, this is pretty good, I like it.
2 out of 5 stars Really wanted to like this wax... 02/23/2013
Reviewer: A viewer from USA
But I don't. (I'm sorry). I can't seem to get a decent scent throw, no matter what I do. I was using a different wax for tarts and will go back to that. I even had some clients ask me if I had changed something because my tarts weren't as good as all the ones they had gotten from me previously (even in the same scents) - uh-oh! The only difference is the wax. Like I said, I wanted to love it, but it just didn't work for me.
