I find this wax to be great for my pillar candles. I was a little skeptical because of the other reviews but the hot and cold throw are great. There is literally no frosting. It came out my molds perfectly smooth

Initially I thought I really loved this wax. I was only pouring in clamshells though. The release from the plastic as well as the snap was was amazing, no frosting, & good CT. As for a HT it seemed hit or miss depending on the oil. Now as time has gone on I’m finding that majority of my oils are not getting a HT with this and I started doing some shapes using silicone moles and those all seem to frost pretty bad. I’m not going to say I hate it but I am at the end of my supply and I have purchased a different kind this time and plan to try some new ones to see if I like something else better.

I've had the best experience with this wax for my wax melts but I'd like to know if there is any other wax that may be better than this one or is basically the same and does this good with melts. This one has such a great cold and hot throws. Plus every single melt I've sold gets reviews saying they last for days and throw off great Scents. In New to this and I'm just curious about everything. Please let me know. Thank you

Still loving my wax

Definitely loving this wax. Was thinking of testing out new wicks and was wondering if it’s ok to use CD Wicks with this wax type.

Not to bad

I have a love hate relationship with this. Great cold throw, no frosting, and the perfect snap for wax melts. Hot throw is only strong with a handful of fragrance oils.

I loved using this wax for molds but lately the frosting is crazy when I take my candles out of their molds. I tried numerous different things and nothing works. So disappointed.

I love this wax. I’ve tried others for my wax melts and no other compare ! The quality , the fragrance throw , the no frosting , the clam shell release all perfect . This is the first wax I tried when I got in the business of wax melt making and no others compare trust me I’ve tried a lot of others .

I found this wax to frost in my silicone molds. every tart is frosted on all sides. my melts go into small bags or boxes and this wax crumbles badly compared to the previous wax I was using. I will keep looking for the best soy tart but this didn't do it for me. most my end product was for testing anyway and is waste and cannot sell it.
