Joy Wax- 1 CASE

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.  43-46 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

New Candle Maker Review rating is 3 stars

3 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from New York, NY

I am new to the candle making business. I have been attempting to make the perfect candle for over a month. I wish those experienced candle makers that also swear by Joy Wax and "can't believe people are saying that they can't smell a scent," would be a little more transparent. Did you get the perfect, frost free, excellent cold throw and hot throw on the first try?
Are you following the manufacturer's instructions to a science or is there a candle making hack that I am missing?
I have been frustrated over and over, even with the pretty appearance of Joy Wax, the faint scent is what is most frustrating. Fortunately, I am not a quitter and I have invested too much money and energy in trying to get it right. When I FINALLY get the successful results, I will be sure to inspire and inform other new candle makers coming behind me that the candle making business takes PATIENCE, MUCH TESTING, and MONEY and No you are not crazy, there isn't a smell but there will be one day....Stay encouraged

Reviewer: from Maryland

I've been using Joy Wax for a year now and it has never given me any issues. I always get smooth tops, great cold and hot throw, and bright colors! I would recommend this to beginners as well since it's so easy to work with.

1 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Sarasota, FL

I've ordered Joy Wax many times in the past with no problems. This past order (Feb 1st) the joy wax I received had absolutely NO hot throw and hardly any cold throw :( I have no idea what happened this time! I used the same scents, the same measurements, everything! I've been experimenting with new scents for some major changes to my line and even those failed. A couple of weeks ago I purchased some 464 but I'm soooo missing the simplicity of the Joy Wax. Now I'm nervous to purchase more :(

Horrible Batch Review rating is 1 stars

1 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Pittsburgh, PA

I've purchased several slabs of the Joy Wax and have always had great results, my customers were always happy and they always returned for another candle. I never went above ordering the slabs because Natures Garden makes it clear that "all wax sales are final" - but I went against my own better judgement and I figured my results have always been great so let's order the case of Joy Wax. HORRIBLE DECISION!!! I knew it would be a few months before I cracked the case so I called Natures Garden to inquire about the Wax losing "something" if it sat for a while - I was told as long as it was used within a year all would be fine. I opened it in about 3 months.

I used my exact same measurement as I've always used (10%) load per pound of wax - which is the max load Natures Garden told me Joy Wax could handle as well as the exact same wicks that I've always used. Candles burn great as usual.

The problem is I have to stick my nose in the jar to smell anything as there is VERY MINIMAL COLD THROW and when they are burning THERE IS 0-ZERO HOT THROW. I mean absolutely nothing!!! I cannot understand how I could go from producing fantastic smelling candles with this exact same wax to absolutely nothing.

I made (40) candles out of this case - my candles always cure for AT LEAST 2 weeks before I'll allow any to hit the market. Twenty-Two (22) candles have already been returned for refunds, I've had nine (9) complaints, and I have not heard anything from the remaining nine (9) customers.

Natures Garden can afford these types of complaints because they are the supplier - I myself cannot, as I am the little guy just trying to survive in a market that is already saturated to capacity. This has definitely hurt my business and now I have all this wax left that's obviously good for nothing at this point. Very, very disappointed.

Fantastic wax! Review rating is 5 stars

5 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Philadephia

I am rather new to candle making and figured I would give this wax a try. LOVED it! Used it in 9 oz. Hex jars with Premier 756 wicks. Used Black Tie fragrance and followed instructions. Great cold and hot throw! I ALWAYS let my candles cure for 2 weeks before burning them. I am not sure if others are burning them too soon after making them, as that can throw off the scent greatly. (I had no need to add Crisco.) Very impressed! as I normally use IGI 4633 for containers.

This is an easy to use perfect wax for jar candles and first time users! Review rating is 5 stars

5 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from North Myrtle Beach, SC

After many years of dreaming about a candle business I finally decided to take the plunge! Did lots and lots of homework and read tons of reviews , finally settled on Joy Wax as my first investment in wax. This blend is user friendly once you get the swing of how it works. I suggest warming your jars before pouring your candles. This reduces craters and bubbles. Also eliminates the need to smooth tops as much. Lots of "Joy" from this first time user!!!! Have now ordered & received my second case continuing my candle journey... Follow instructions and you will enjoy it too!

Great! Review rating is 5 stars

5 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Modesto, ca

This wax is great. I was using a 100% soy wax before and wasn’t able to get a hot throw whatsoever. I gave up on candle making for almost a year due to frustration. I thought I would give Joy Wax a try and I’m sure glad I did. There are a few fragrances I am having a hard time getting a good hot throw, but I think it might just be me. I made an autumn wreath candle and gave it to my mom to try out. She says it smells great, but I can’t smell anything. Maybe I am nose blind? I recommend any who is having a hard time with 100% soy to give this a try. You won’t regret it. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED FOR THIS WAX! Does anyone know the soy and paraffin percentages?

5 Joy Wax- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Chicago, IL

I'm so confused by the people that say they don't get a scent throw from Joy wax! I don't know what you are doing wrong (possibly not letting it cure?), but this wax is awesome! I blend it with a pillar wax for my wax tarts & let them cure for a couple weeks. Even though it says no cure required, it will definately benefit the throw if you do let them cure. They get super strong after 2-3 weeks, depending on the fragrance oil, some are even very strong after a week. Anyways, I love this wax!
