Wholesale Soy Wax Ordering Check out our wholesale page for more information on ordering 464 Soy Wax in bulk or by the pallet.

Candle Making Notes Golden Brand's soy waxes are a little newer than those from Cargill and Nature's Gifts, but they've become some of our favorites - especially the 464. It has been very consistent over time, and gives a smooth and creamy appearance - mostly due to its low melt point. While this helps create a nice look and helps to reduce frosting, it can be a little too soft for the summer heat. If you are shipping finished candles in hot weather, you may want to look at a soy wax with a higher melt point, like the GB 444. Golden Brands 464 holds lots of fragrance, but even better, it throws fragrance very well. There are other soy waxes that hold as much, but we've found that if you put the 464 up against other waxes - all with the same amount of fragrance - you get the best fragrance throw with the 464.

VIDEO: Golden Brands Soy Wax Comparison We speak with Golden Brands about the differences between their container soy waxes.

VIDEO: Golden Brands Soy is US Grown We caught up with Golden Brands at the NCA and discussed where their soybeans are grown.


New to Soy Wax? Check out our video Candle Making with Soy Wax featuring GB 464. The video includes a list of materials to get you started.

As you'll see in the video, the 464 wax in a candle tin, with no color, is really the easiest way to get started making soy candles. There are a couple of reasons why: the opaque sides of the tin hide any glass adhesion imperfections. The natural white color of the wax hides much of the effects of frosting. The 464 soy wax is very consistent, so a beginner will be able to make a terrific candle if they follow the directions closely. Just use one of our soy-tested fragrance oils (ratings of 2 and 3 work best), check out our wick guide, and get started!

This wax is very easy to work with and has amazing cold & hot throws!

First burn results
Submitted On 2014-05-14

I am new to the 464 soy wax. I love the results as it gives good throws, both hot and cold. When I first burned my candle it burned very well but after burning it created a lumpy surface. Does anyone know how I can correct this?

Great Wax!

This wax is really good. It has great scent throw. It has smooth tops. I have a candle company and use this wax all the time.

Lumpy surface after 1st burn... help!
Submitted On 2014-04-29

I made a batch of candles 2 days ago with 1.5 oz FO per lb of wax.
I heated to 185 and poured at 170 (as people recommended on CS). When it dried, I used a blowtorch to get rid of any sinkholes. I lit the candle today and it burned beautifully; however, after I blew it out after 3 hours of burning it has caters and weird bumpy surfaces too! I noticed that the wax slightly bubbled when it was lit.

Wondering how to fix it?

Also, I would prefer more scent throw from the candle? Any suggestions? Has anyone used vybar for soy?

This is my favorite Soy Wax
Submitted On 2014-03-20

I have been using GB 464 for several months now. It isn't always consistent from box to box but you will learn to work out the kinks. I usually use 1 ounce to 1 1/2 ounce of fragrance oil per pound and have not had any leaching problems at all. I live in California in the San Francisco Bay Area. I heat my wax to 180 degrees, add my fragrance and stir for about two minutes. I heat my jars in the oven and take them out to cool when my wax is about ten minutes to pour time. I have been pouring between 140 and 145 and that seems to work for me with the cooler weather, however I don't see the need to do that in the warmer months. I have used Ecosoya 135 before this and find this wax much easier to work with.
If you get discouraged, keep on testing. I tried several pour temps before I got it down.
It seems that there is no hard and fast rules to making soy candles except expect the unexpected and go with the flow. As the weather changes soy wax may change too.
I find the GB 464 to be worth the trials.

Awesome wax for a beginner as well as an expert

I've used 100 pounds of this wax in just under three week.I don't understand why some people are having a frosting problem? I've had no complaints from my customers!

Best Soy Wax Ever

I have tried several soy waxes but GB464 is by far the best. I love the smooth tops and the end result. Will definitely continue to use this wax. Great job Candlescience. I love your products!!!!!

Sent the wrong wax, please ignore review below
Submitted On 2014-02-15

I wrote the review below this one, and it turns out I was sent the wrong wax, I was sent Golden Brands 444 and not the GB 464.. What a huge difference in wax! The GB 444 would not work for me.

Great in 1lb sizes, but 50lb size is horrible!!
Submitted On 2014-02-15

I ordered 3 separate lbs of this wax and it was absolutely awesome, so I decided to order a 50lb box and now I have a horrible mess. I have sink holes and cracks on the tops of my candles and the wax is lumpy. Nothing changed in my candle making but the size of the box I ordered. I have experimented with different pour temps to try and get this wax to work and its all bad.. Couldn't have come at a worse time, as I had just launched my company and I was standing their holding a bunch of really bad product. I'm not sure why there would be a difference between single pound wax and a box of 50 lbs,, but there is!!

Perfect Products

I am new to candle making. I received my products to make my candles with in two days. Extremely fast shipping. I made 12 candles with one 10 lb. bag of 464 Soy Wax. Amazing. Very easy to make. Your videos are helpful. I made beautiful, sellable candles. Thanks Candle Science for helping me start my candle business. I will definitely be ordering from ONLY you guys. Beautiful jars as well. The only place I've found all the jars that I need for my customers.

I was wrong!

Had some problems with my first try at the appropriate wick, but have actually ended up with your recommendations being incredibly helpful! So my thanks and apologies to customer service...I'd be lost without candle science :)

The Secret to Success!!!
Submitted On 2014-01-03

This is my second order for the GB464. I went through tons of test and my container candles kept ending up with wet spots, sink holes, major frosting, very little hot throw,ragged tops etc. etc. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed and I almost stopped ordering this wax.

However, I have now seen the light! The pour temp listed did not work for me. It says to pour at 135, give or take 5 and I tried pouring everywhere from 120-150 and I kept having problems. I've now made 3 container candles (in the 12oz cube jars) and they are beautiful! No frosting, no separation, no sink holes, perfectly smooth tops! The secret? I stopped pouring in the 120-140 range and started pouring at 170. Ok, so it's not a secret. Other comments mention this, but it's made a huge difference for me. The cold throw now reaches all over my house and I live in a bilevel, 4 bedroom home. I can smell the candles in every room, even when they aren't lit!

So, if any of you are experiencing the problems that I am, try heating the wax to 185, adding the color and scent and then pouring at 170. See if you love the results as much as I do!

Also, if you're not getting the throw you want, make sure you're adding fragrance to 1lb of wax. I was using too much fragrance and was getting poor hot & cold throw. Using a full 1lb of wax changed this for me as well. Sorry this review is so long, but hopefully it helps someone out there!

Happy candle making!

WOW! BEST SOY WAX I HAVE USED YET!
Submitted On 2013-12-19

I absolutely love this wax. I came from using GB 444 and was unhappy with the amount of frosting I was getting using it so I decided to try the 464 and I am very happy I did! I get zero frosting, smooth and creamy tops and overall beautiful looking candles. I think the hot throw in this wax is better than the 444 as well. I will continue to buy my 464 from Candle Science! THANKS.

How to use with essential oils
Submitted On 2013-12-02

This was my first time making candles. When I made a couple with the sample fragrance oil, they turned out perfectly. I want to use essential oils though and my first try they had very little scent throw when burning. I put in 1 tsp per lb of peppermint essential oil. I heated to 185, stirred in the scent, and then poured at 135. Does anyone have hints for using essential oil with this wax?

Great Wax for Beginning a Candle Maker!
Submitted On 2013-11-26

I will start off by saying that I never ever write reviews for products, but I'm so pleased my the results I had to comment. I have never made candles before, but decided it was something I wanted to try for Xmas presents this year. I used this wax and my candles turned out beautifully! I used the double boiler method. I heated my wax until it melted, added in color chips, got the temp. to 185 degrees and added my scent. I also heated my jars in the oven at 200 degrees, and poured a little hotter than suggested, around 160 degrees. No frosting, no pooling of FO or sweating, no problems! I'm kind of obsessed now and already ordering more scents. Luckily, the warehouse is only 15 minutes from me so I don't have to pay for shipping :)

Wick size
Submitted On 2013-11-20

Just a warning, don't order by the recommendations, go through the testing. I followed the recommended wick for jar size. Soy type, and it would not stay lit for 15 minutes. You may need a different size!, And it varies with scents, so be careful to test! My only complaint was the way I was treated on the phone, after spending 150 including shipping. Rather cold. The products are good, the scents are yummy!

Newbie at Candlemaking
Submitted On 2013-11-20

Thought I try my hand at soy candle making after buying soy candles and loving them. I ordered 10 lbs of the GB464 and made 24 candles. They turned out beautiful...only 1 had a little frosting. I heated to 185 and poured at 135. I did warm my jars in the oven. Maybe this helps to not get the frosting. My only issue is getting more hot throw from some of the scents. I added 1oz of fragrance per lb but am going to try 1.5 oz per lb on my next batch. I'm obsessed with my new hobby...I just ordered more wax and can't wait to try more fragrances.

Great product!
Submitted On 2013-11-17

I used this wax to make candles for a wedding (2-5 oz jars for favors) - it was perfect! I was a bit hesitant because of the mixed reviews, but I had used soy wax before and couldn't find a better deal online, so I went with it. I played around with scents, dyes, and temperatures at different stages - from wax temp, to jar temp, to even room temp. Almost every batch turned out great, with a few minor flaws here and there. As soon as I realized that not EVERY candle was going to be perfect (haha), I'd created a chart to document each step and every detail along the way ( _strongly recommended for beginners like myself_ ). By doing so, I could easily pinpoint every problem I encountered (i.e. see the error of my ways) ...most mistakes were very minor, which I don't think I would have paid any mind to otherwise. The chart also allowed me to experiment a lot more, and quickly upped my learning curve. ...not to mention, it helps to simply follow directions ;)
Con: The 50 lb box of wax was delivered to my door step on a warm summer day, several hours before returning home from work ...so yeah, apparently ants really like soy.

Good Cold Throw, No Hot Throw! WHY, Golden Brands 464, WHY?
Submitted On 2013-11-12

I am having the WORST TIME with this wax. I don't understand? I keep reading reviews and see some people saying they got a bad batch.. Should I trust purchasing soy wax from here? I got a 50 pound batch and am curious if I should even trust Golden Brand. Also, I am using fragrance oil from Mill Creek http://www.mcsoywax.com/) with my soy wax. I tried heating it between 175-180, pouring at 135. I even tried melting at different temps and max FO loads. Any combination you can think of. Does anyone have advice? I am using a double boiler but putting my pouring pot in to another pot of water and place something beneath the pouring pot so my pouring pot is not directly on top of the heat. Is it the fragrance oil? I have even bought multiple different thermometers in case it was not reading correctly. I put the thermometer in the wax and one in the water to test also. I tried going by the temp of the thermometer in the wax, and tried another batch with the temp of the thermometer in the water just for kicks. What gives? Pretty frustrated. So frustrated I'm not sure if this rant even makes sense! Please help, any advise is helpful.

Why all the complaints?
Submitted On 2013-11-03

I just made 3 batches of candles for the first time yesterday and I honestly don't see why it's gotten so many negative reviews. I didn't get a single crater or sink hole. All came out with smooth, beautiful tops. However, I did experience frosting along the sides of a couple glass containers with my first batch so I tried pouring at a hotter temperature the 2nd time. The 3rd time was the charm. I poured at somewhere between 175-180 degrees and only experienced a minimal amount of frosting on the very bottom of my glass containers. I will definitely keep using this wax and my advice to anyone having issues with frosting would be to make sure to pour at a high temperature, 170-180 degrees should help reduce frosting. I'm going to try adding a tsp of crisco or coconut oil next time to see if it helps eliminate frosting all together.

Loved it!
Submitted On 2013-11-02

This wax worked great for me! I'm not sure what others are complaining about, but I made my first three candles about two weeks ago and I have no complaints about this wax. I will definitely buy it again.

Not good at all!
Submitted On 2013-10-22

The first time I got the 646 wax was through a different company so when I needed to reorder I decided to get the wax plus the fragrance all through the same company to save money on shipping. I love the fragrance oils candle science sells but was not happy with the wax. This wax holds hardly any fragrance at all. I have to use 2oz per lb and I still hardly get any scent from it when I burn my candles. I will never buy this wax again. Had to replace all the candles I sold to people and lost out on a lot of money because of this wax. :(

Horrible horrible wax - bad batch???
Submitted On 2013-10-10

I have previously used EcoSoya Advanced wax which was fantastic. It was sold out where I normally buy it and thought I'd try a new one. Maybe I got a bad batch but this wax looks absolutely horrendous as it dries. Tops look downright disgusting in my opinion and the scent is pretty much gone after cooling. What a waste. I now have candles that look terrible and smell like nothing at all. I would not buy this wax ever again.

Frosting of GB464 wax
Submitted On 2013-10-10

Some 50 lb. boxes work well, others not. I don't know why? Also, I'm concerned about the frosting that occurs regardless of fo, amount, color, pour temp,etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Sweating issues
Submitted On 2013-10-07

The first box of GW 464 was great. I'd give it almost 5 stars. I was using an FO load of 9% and getting smooth tops. I just got a new box a few weeks ago and this time I am getting horrible tops as well as massive amounts of sweating. The only variable in my formula that changed is the new wax. I have now reduced my FO load to 7% and am STILL getting pools of FO on the tops of my candles. I did a temperature test last night making sure to stir very well the entire time. I poured at 155, 150, 145, 140, 135, 130, 125 and 120. All have good adhesion but ALL are sweating. Is anyone else having this issue? I think I may have gotten a bad box. My order shipped from the NV location.

Latest batch is a FAIL
Submitted On 2013-10-06

My original order was great, I followed the directions on melt and pour temps and had no issues. This time around, I am getting craters in the tops and it almost appears crystallized on the tops. I have adjusted the pour temps and decreased the FO added. Same results with this batch. I am open to ANY suggestions?

Help!

I used the Golden Brand 464 for the first time and did not get a hot throw. I heated wax to 185 in double boiler, took out, added dye and fragrance immediately, poured at 135. The candles look gorgeous but no throw. BTW, I made 5 batches! Please help!

This wax has great hot and cold throw however if I pour at anything below 170 I get ugly lumpy bumpy cratered candles. If you are having trouble with this wax try pouring at 170.

Smooth tops - No frosting!
Submitted On 2013-08-26

So I used GB 464 for the first time recently and was amazed at how smooth and creamy the tops of my candles turned out! There was zero frosting on the tops and the sides. Very happy with this purchase, just wish shipping wasn't such a killer! But because of the beautiful candles that this wax gave me, I will definitely be buying more.

Love it!
Submitted On 2013-08-06

I'm a total newbie to candle making. I made my very first candle last night with GB 464. I heated up to 185 and poured at 160. I woke up to a beautiful, professional looking candle! I didn't have to re-pour or anything. It developed a little bit of frosting on the sides of the jar, but I'm told this is normal. I've made 2 more since then and except for having to re-pour one because of a tiny crater, they all look perfect! I recommend this wax to anyone starting out. Will definitely reorder!

Frosting on GW464
Submitted On 2013-07-10

I recently bought GW464 soy was from hearing such good views from this product. I just started making candles and I have done about 6 batches of this wax so far. Each seems to be frosting. I do this in my basement where it is cooler, I have heated my wax to 185 degrees then add FO @ 180 and Dye (liquid)around 170 degrees, then have poured at temps from 110 degrees up to 130 degrees. Seems like it pours and sets ok at first, but after about a day, I see the frosting start to occur. Anyone else having issues with frosting? Please give any advice that may help. Thank you.

Please I have a question help!
Submitted On 2013-06-29

I'm using soy wax 464. My question is two part: to add fragrance oil are we measuring the dry wax amount or melted wax amount? Because I scooped 1 lb of wax and when it melts it is less than 1 lb so I'm wondering if there is a ratio I can use. Like what weight of dry wax equals melted wax so I know how much fragrance to use, please help. Btw I love this company and its products. Great prices also.

Golden Brand 464 is by far the best on the market. I have been making and selling candles for years, without being completely satisfied. That changed a few years ago, when I was introduced to the Golden Brand family. It is a definite no fuss wax that puts out a big throw, hot and cold.

I use the Premier WI wick 775-777 on a 3-3.5 inch jar and get the perfect candle everytime!! Also, I heat to 180 and pour between 150 and 145.

What else can I say, other than thanks Golden Brand 464, for saving the day!!

For those wanting tips on smooth tops for their candles; i've noticed that certain oils give a frosty look, i usually heat to atleast 180 and pour at 170, i have got about 98% smooth tops, if not frosting with lavender and chamomile only so far, and if i do have craters or dips they are small and actually i havent had a problem selling these either. 464 is what i have used and it works great for me. i'm not too familiar with wicks, my candles are between 3.5" and 4.5"...what wicks would be best?

Great wax!!
Submitted On 2013-06-01

I have been making and selling candles since 2006 with this wax you need to pour your candles at a higher temp or you will have problems with creators and holes on your candles. It just takes practice, I had the same problem when I first started using this wax until I figured it out. You do get excellent scent throw with this wAx and the price is great. Don't give up just play with it a little and I do think humidity plays a factor for the woman in flicking in Florida. I was making candles in the basement and in the winter with cooler temp and less humidity I had better results. Hope this helps.

Beginner's Luck, or is it the Wax??
Submitted On 2013-05-18

I am a new candle maker, and so far I love the GB 464! I use 1lb of the wax with 1oz of fragrance. I heat to 185, add fragrance and dye chip, stir gently but thoroughly for a few minutes, and pour at 135. This process has produced perfect candles using the 8oz tins and 8oz jelly jars. There is no, or extremely minimal, frosting. The tops are smooth and pretty, no craters or frosting. Using the proper wick from the wick guide, the candle burns perfectly, with a melt pool that extends across the entire container. Oh and the scent throw is fine - I've tried several of the soy-rated fragrances and they smell great and you can begin to smell the fragrance in the air very shortly after lighting the candle. I think the key is to be very precise in your process, and stir gently so as not to introduce tiny air bubbles into the wax. But so far I'm a huge fan, and have already sold over a dozen of my candles, they really do come out perfectly and everyone loves them!

Excellent Hot/Cold Throw

Once you go Golden Brands 464, you never go back. In my native language, that rhymes.

Excellent wax. Great cold and hot throw. A bit too frosty though, however, you can add a little vybar 260 (1 teaspoon per 1lb) to get smooth tops.

Great throw(hot/cold), but not pretty surface.

ive been using soy 415(100% soy) and i had lots of problem with HOT scent throws, so i tried switching to soy 464. thought that since its not pure soy, it will reduce A LOT of frosting, and have EXTREMELY smooth tops. but i was wrong, it has a lot of frosting. and first pours are always pretty for me. but after the first burn i get craters, bubbles (foam looking), weird bumpy surfaces!!! the only good thing is the throw. i get both cold and hot, but i would have to use 1&1/2 per pound. i heat my wax 175-185. usually 185. add color, and fragrance, and then mix for a minute to two, and then let cool till 135, 125, 100, 90 degrees. ive tried it all and my candles(containers) are always frosting. and after first burn they have deformed surfaces. i have even tried adding a tiny little bit to medium amount of paraffin wax to see if have better surfaces. it does make the surface look a lot smoother, but it takes away the hot scent throw if anyone can help me solve this problem or have any suggestions please email me at leesalovee@gmail.com

I have bought many 50 lb boxes of this soy and have always been very happy with it until this last box I got. It was like one big clump of soy, it was hard to dig apart to measure, nothing but a total mess. When I measured the soy from this box it did not give the the same measurement from any other box I purchased. For example I measured 1lb from this box which was heavier and got less liquid wax from the same amount I used from a different box of soy measuring 1lb. I assume it was due to it being wet and weight was heavier so my calcuations were not coming out correct. This made it very difficult to measure the correct amountof soy for the amount of candles I wanted per oz of scent. I am on the last of it now and sure hope I NEVER get another box like this. I called and they told me it was because it was left out in the heat. It wasnt left in the heat by me it was sent to me this way!

So pleased =)

Before I had pretty tops and no scent. Now I have pretty tops and a great scent throw from even my 4oz candle! I used .5 oz of cotton candy with my 1oz of peach and it smells yummy.

Perfect Wax
Submitted On 2012-02-26

I burned through about 10 lbs of wax due to testing, and because I am a newbie, I just had to try many variables. I poured some 8 oz ball jars that were slightly warmed at 120 and I am literally beside myself at how creamy and wonderfully beautiful these candles are! I thought of trying another wax, but... never mind.

Great Wax !

I had been looking for a good container wax that was one pour, had trouble finding one that was just pure soy until now. I followed the directions to a t the first time and poured @135 and did not have a flawless top but after dropping the pour temp to 120 I had a smooth creamy finish everytime after that with my candles.So now not only do they smell good they look good too!

The Best Wax
Submitted On 2011-12-16

After researching how to make candles and where to buy wax, I decided on using this soy wax. When I made my first batch of candles, they were flawless. The color was amazing and the fragrance was better than the two candles I bought at Yankee Candle Co. They burned perfectly also.

I used this wax, it is very messy. I have sink holes in the top of all of my candles.

Nice Soy Container Wax

This wax works really well. I followed all instructions carefully and the result was a nice smooth candle with powerful scent throw.

Easy to work with and excellent scent throw!

This was my first time using the GB464 soy wax and I was very pleased with the results! I added 10% FO @ 185 degrees (no dyes)and poured @ 135 degrees. Glass adhesion was perfect and the scent throw is amazing! Thanks CandleScience, I will be reordering again soon!

LOVE,LOVE,LOVE, OH AND BY THE WAY LOVE THIS WAX.

I used a more expensive wax and loved it but being new to this wanted to try others. Well no more! I love this wax. I went through 15 or so pounds to get the candle I want. I asked around and I found that all the info on melt points were too high. I have found the perfect formula for me and have even found with this wax you can get oils that do not do well in soy to work great with cold and hot scent throw. I have been in business for 2 months and already have my candles in 7 speciality shops and on many occasions been compared to Yankee Candle. I love this wax and I love Candlescience. You cannot go wrong with this wax!!!!

I was so excited I mistyped the last line...I meant I wish I had started with GB 464 but I am glad I have it now. All experience makes me a better candle maker...

OH MY GOD!

I started making candles two years ago. I will save you the heartache and pain stories (we candle makers have enough of those to keep us up for a week typing). I started with nature wax c3...hmm. It has taken me until NOW to actually get the results I desired with it. I used EcoSoya CB Advanced last week. Beautiful candles with NO HOT THROW WHATSOEVER! I followed instructions to the T. But then...ahhh, I ordered a 50 lb. case of Golden Brands 464 and I tell you, my heart skipped a beat when I woke up this morning and saw the beautifully set candles with great cold throw. I could not wait until the proper cure time to test burn so I did one 8 hours after I poured and a 4 oz. Jelly Jar Vanilla scented I wish I had but I am oh so grateful I have it now..Thank you Candlescience, I love your helpful website! A treasure it is!

pretty good stuff

I played around with this wax for a bit but I found my stride with it. My candles have been consistent every time I make them and they burn pretty evenly.

PROBLEMS SOLVED
Submitted On 2010-09-10

At first we had nothing but problems with this wax, the candle tops were full of craters (holes) the sides were frosted and had wet spots, once and a while we would get one or two nice candles, well after alot of playing around with melt and pour temps we have finally been getting perfect candles with a melt temp of 175 and pour temp @ 170 we have not had one bad candle since. Hope this helps others that may be having problems also.

Ive had trouble using this wax in the beginning getting scent oil on top of my candles. I finally decided to change the pour temp to 160 degrees and yet to have a problem with my candles since.

Best soy wax ever!!!!!!!!!

I love this doy wax works great!!!! This is the only one I trust!

This is to the previous post...

I had the same problem with a batch. No matter what I did the wax would not solidify correctly with the oil. I tried insanely to fix the problem making over 30 candles. I still have the 50lb box sitting there not being used, but thankfully when I ordered the next case there was no problems at all. So its not just you!

Having problems with this wax
Submitted On 2010-03-13

I wrote a previous review for this wax and gave it a great rating. Snice that time...The last 50 lb box that I purchased was a nightmare! I had scent oil coming to the top of my candles. Usually this only occured after I smoothed the tops with a heat gun.(which I have always done with all the waxes that I have used and I have NEVER had a problem) I recieved a lot of support from CS and we were never really able to come to a definate conclusion. Has anyone else ever had this problem? If so ....please email me at j.nordi@comcast.net

"air bubbles/wells" forming near wicks
Submitted On 2010-03-01

I really do like this wax - however - i am finding that i get "air bubbles/wells" near the wicks in 1 out of 4 candles i make. i am able to somewhat fix this situation and have tried everything suggested to me to keep this from happening. Not sure why 3 candles can be fine and only one will have a hole.....I might rethink reordering this wax...

i do love the way it looks-very creamy and burns clean & even.

So Easy!!

Finally, a one pour Soy with a smooth creamy top. This will be my choice of container soy from now on.

Best wax yet !!
Submitted On 2009-02-13

I have used many soy waxes. This is by far the best. Tops sometimes need a little work with the heat gun but I get a very smooth looking jar candle. This is the first time I used this wax and it will be the only one I use in the future.

Beautiful, easy wax

This wax produces a beautiful smooth creamy appearance with great scent throw! Very, very easy to use. I have tried many different waxes includung Eco-Soy and this is the one I will stay with. Thank you for a great product at a great price!

SO easy to work with

I have been making soy wax candles for over 5 years and just finally found this wax this fall. It is SO easy to work with - it really streamlines the process and it takes almost no time to crank out a whole bunch of candles!

Easy to use- Amazing scent throw

I was having trouble finding a soy wax with amazing scent throw until I tried this wax. Very easy to use once you get the hang of it and the scent throw is insane! My all time favorite soy wax out there and I have really tried almost all of them!
