Blended Waxes Paraffin Soy Wax (BW-910) in a bowl
Choose a Variant

Blended Waxes Paraffin/Soy Wax (BW-910) combines the excellent fragrance throw of paraffin with the visual appeal and usability of soy. A great choice for container candles and tealights, BW-910 shines as single-pour wax with consistent color and strong burn performance in larger containers. The higher melt point helps candles ship in the summer without melting in transit.

The exact ratio of paraffin to soy is proprietary, but can share that this blend is more than 50% paraffin. This allows for smooth, glossy tops, vibrant dye coloration, and excellent cold and hot throw in the finished candle at a variety of fragrance loads. 

Packaged in a soft slab form, this wax can easily be cut using a sharp knife or even a soap cutter like the Wavy Soap Cutter. No additives are necessary.

Candle Maker's Notes:
Every candle will produce smoke and soot while burning, and wax blends with paraffin tend to have darker soot. If you're seeing excess sooting, we recommend testing different wick sizes, or double wicking in larger containers (3.3"/8.4 cm diameter or larger). Additionally, reducing fragrance load can be beneficial - 6-8% will be plenty strong for most fragrances!

Troubleshooting Tips

  • For the strongest scent throw, we recommend letting finished candles cure for at least 3 days.
  • See our Lab Notes on how to get the most out of BW-910!
  • Use our Wick Guide to help get your testing started.
  • For help choosing the right candle wax for your candles, visit our Wax Guide.

Note: The weight of slabbed wax can vary slightly. Cases contain 4 slabs of wax packaged together in a reinforced cardboard box.

On my last order of wax, the quality was totally off. The color was white instead of its usual off white, and it soots heavily. For my holiday line, I made a total of 12 candles, but I am unable to sell any of them.
This is the first time I have encountered this problem after using this wax for a year.

I personally love this wax

I’m new to candle making, and I make cute confectionery candles. This wax is easy to work with even for beginners, it’s very soft and easy to cut my CT/ HT is amazing also I highly recommend it. But like I seen in the reviews above the wicking is a personal preference depending on your jar

It's been interesting!

I knew this would take some trial and error, starting with minimal experience. I started with straight soy wax, from that moved to coco/soy blend and now have found this para/soy. I love the para/soy! This blend didn't take much to figure out what fragrance load I wanted to use for the strength of my candles. The off-white color hasn't effected my colors that I learned with the previous waxes, which was a huge plus. This is a sticky wax however so you sometimes get a crystalized look on top of the candle but honestly I enjoy that it looks different from the other waxes. Wicks have been my hardest challenge, per not be universal to wax type or container. However I feel like wicks are more a personal preference after a while.

22lbs Later, I Finally Figured it Out!

Let me save you $$ on testing...use zinc wicks! I blew through 22 lbs of this wax testing over 3 months with no hope! Can't speak for larger containers, but for smaller GLASS containers (9 oz straight sided jars and smaller) just use zinc wicks. LX 16 was recommended for this wax in 9 oz straight sided jars which was way too hot. My vessel diameter is 2.75. I was getting great CT/HT with but with soot galore!! My containers were black! 2-day cure & 2-week cure, at 7.5% FL I was still getting soot and smoke. I tried the runner up on the wick guide (CD 6) also too hot! I tried the CD 4 as well as the CD 3 and it was still too hot. Although this wax is comparable to 6006 it is NOT 6006. This is a very soft wax that needs a cool burning flame (Think coco83, IGI6046). I didn't try the LX 14 because the runner up for that was the CD 4 which I had already tested, and it was too large. After looking at the ROC chart for the lx 16 & 14 I knew they would perform similarly so I saved my time & supplies. If you prefer to get your supplies from one place, I suggest testing the LX 10 & 12 in the straight sided jars if you have a smaller diameter vessel like mine. This wax is mostly paraffin so don't expect a full MP on the first burn. Parafin burns down first, not out first like soy. My MP starts catching up around the 4th burn and it's a beautiful and steady smoke-free flame all the way down!

Candle Science please bring back the zinc wicks ya'll used to carry they are awesome! Also if you guys could offer the lx 8 wicks in 6 inch that would be helpful for waxes like BW-910, IGI 6046, and IGI 4630 for those of us who use smaller containers!

Once you get it wicked right, this wax is 10/10! HT, CT, Single Pour, and easy to use! Highly Recommend!

I've been making candles almost 2 yrs now. When I did my research of which wax to start out for beginners, I herd the soy blend was great to start with and we end up choose the bw910 After experiencing with this wax the results
was amazing with the HT and CT. If you use the right wicks then you shouldn't get tunneling. I never had any bad experience with this wax. After seeing the bad reviews on here ,you can completely know these candle makers have no experience. Every fragrance can be different but always cure at least 2 weeks to get the best results. If you want to make wax melts then you need a hard pillar wax to hold its mold. I finally got a chance to do this review and I give it a 👍
