A favorite for wax melts, pillar candles, embeds, and votives, Blended Waxes® Pillar Soy Wax (BW-921) is made with 100% soybean oil and uses soy-based additives to enhance performance. It exhibits very good scent throw, vibrant colors, and excellent mold release.

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.

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.

A Must Buy!

This wax is the bomb! I am a faithful user of 494 wax from another supplier but I tested out this bW921 last night and just popped the wax out of the clamshell and babyyyy! That snap is truly unmatched! I literally just spent the last 3 or 4 mins just holding the wax in my hand because the texture is amazng and I am really thinking of making the switch. I am going to test 2 cubes in my warmer (has only been 24 hour cure) and then test again at week 1 for HT. But so far I am rating this wax a 9/10 on usability, and texture! That snap is a sassy snap like the wax is saying "yeah baby your regular wax don't snap like that do she?" Lmaoooo! BW921 has done it's big one with this one.

worked fine for me

i think this is a nice wax, i didnt have any issues with the h/t or c/t. i like that it is in pellets vs shavings too, makes it easier to scoop. good price per amount you buy.

Great wax!

This is the wax I was looking for, after using 3 types of different waxes. Finally, I got the correct one. Thank you!
