We love it

We've been using this wax for a while and we have no complaints. We love that it is 100% soy with no additives. Our customers give us nothing but consistent positive feedback. Please don't disco this wax.

By far the best...

It makes me sad to see all the bad reviews of this wax. This wax has great glass adhesion. For most fragrances, I can load up on 12%, and the candle is still perfect and burns beautifully. I haven't had any issues with the wicks - just like with any other wax, you have to test a few to figure out what works for your containers. It holds color great and has a beautiful creamy finish. It's 100% wax which is really important to me and my customers, and it is also reparable. If you take it outside in the cold and it develops a wet spot (like any candle would with that kind of temp drop), you can easily fix it with a heat gun. I cure and store all my candles at 78-80 degrees in a spare bedroom using a space heater, since I like to keep my house cold (66-68). I'm really sad they are thinking of discontinuing this wax. It might seriously put me out of business, since I've been through so many waxes with such horrible results. Please keep this wax, Candle Science!

Sick and tired of wick drowning

Nothing will burn in the horrible wax. I've tried all sorts of materials. Not even hemp will burn in it.

Lots and lots of soot!

I was so excited to try Xcel. I made one of each of the fragrances I sell (All from CS). Used the same wicks as I do for the CB Advanced. They set up so beautiful. Smooth tops and such creamy appearance through my frosted jars. Excellent glass adhesion. I thought this was the perfect wax (as I do still experiment with different waxes) until I test burned the first one. There was puffs of black soot to where the rim of the jar was turning black....wick looked good. The same happened to the other nine candles. All black puffs of soot. Instead of changing the whole candle recipe I just went back to my CB Advanced.

Bad wax

I thought that I would try this wax and found that 1 out of every 4 candles came out unsellable. The frosting is terrible, some even discolor, and it happens very randomly. Complete waste of time and money. Wish I could give it zero stars.

Unusable. Completely unusable.

I ordered this wax after seeing that the wax that I have used for 3 yrs Cargill c-3 was now manufactred by a different company and also because it claims to not "frost".

The claim is wrong. The frosting is horrible.

No scent throw

I ordered 2 bags of this stuff wanting to love it. It's horrible. I followed every step to a T, didn't overheat the wax, waited to add fragrance oil... No cold or hot throw no matter what I do. I went through 15 candles to get 2 decent ones. Never ordering this again

beginner and I love it!

I would like to start off by saying that I am a beginner candle maker. I had no idea how much went into making candles when I made my initial investment. With that being said I love this wax! I've done my research since starting down this exciting road and I have seen how particular each and everything can be. I got lucky! This wax works wonderfully with the hemp wicks I bought as well as with the dye, scents, and containers I've bought from candle science. Thank you so much! I'm very thrilled as I sit here enjoying the delicious smelling fruits of my labor!!

I have nothing but great things to say about this wax. I used the CD-20 - Cotton Candle Wick 8" Pre-waxed, and I had no burn problems or soot issues.

I like the way this wax looks in the jar and the fragrance throw is great, however I can not find a wick that will burn in this wax. I have tried HTP, Hemp, RRD, CD all sizes nothing! If someone knows what wicks work in this wax I would greatly appreciate a post.
