Candle Maker's Notes:
Seeking a stronger hot throw in your melts and pillars? Make sure to weigh your fragrance oils, add them to the wax at 185°F (85°C), and stir for two minutes to ensure the fragrance binds to the wax.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Allow your candles to cure for at least a week for maximum throw.
  • View our Lab Notes for all the details on BW-921.
  • Use our Wick Guide to help get your testing started.

I have the same question as Sequoia, I will be using this for embeds and wondering how to wick and how it blends with 464.

Great wax

I love this wax but I am having trouble figuring out the wick to use when making embeds. Does this wax blend well when topping on 464 wax and topping on 454? Especially with 454 wax since it’s a wax blend, I just want to know if it’s a good idea to use this embed on these waxes.

hole in the center of the candle. 🕯☹️

Good morning, I am very new to making candles, I bought this wax to make pillar candles but I respected the times and the temperature and it left a hole in the center, I don't repeat it and it keeps happening to me. I want to know what I am doing wrong? Otherwise, the candle maintains its smell and when unmolded into the silicone molds, it is a beautiful and perfect candle.😘🕯🙌

LOVE this wax for my pillar candle line

After waiting so many years for a worthy soy pillar wax, I've really come to love this wax. It took some trial and error to match the right wick for my 3" pillar candles along with the right fragrance load. DON'T use aluminum molds as the wax comes out dirty. I use plastic molds instead. Hope this feedback helps anyone wanting to move away from paraffin or palm waxes.
