I am so glad that this wax is back. I made a batch of puzzle piece wax melts and they came out perfectly. I used scents Cranberry Woods and Cintron and Mandarin.

Ecosoya PB Pillar Soy Wax

Why would they discontinue a product that we love? I use this wax for my votives, tarts, pillars and other products. This is so sad. Been waiting a long time for a replacement.

candle maker

Extremely upset that NGI is not making this product. I have measured my hemp wicks, burn times, and developed my candle making technique around this wax. Not looking for a huge scent throw, looking for a sustainable long burning, and eco-friendly candle base. If my customers wanted Yankee Candle or Scentsy or Glade Plug-Ins they would not buy from me.
Does anyone know how much vegan stearic acid to add to the golden wax to bring it up to 130 degrees? I've already made 2 trips to Canada to get this wax and now Voyager is out too. My end of summer show is not looking good. Back to the drawing board.

Need a Replacement Wax

I used this wax for tealights and have had a hard time finding a substitute. Why not stock Golden's 416?

No longer available

Are you kidding me. I use this wax for my soy melts and I love it. Now what am I going to use. I bet nothing will compare to it. I am so mad

Discontinued??

I've been making a living off of this wax; I can't believe it's discontinued, while I have absolutely none in stock. I'm hoping the new release is for a better upgrade. I am also concerned as to why it was discontinued, is there something we need to know?? I'm heartbroken, and hope the new wax comes in ASAP! =(

whats your eco soya pillar substitute?

I was pretty happy with this product. my clamshells got a little to brittle so i added some golden 464 to it. But now have no idea what to buy for my tarts. I really dont think i would like blocks of wax. Help spring shows in 3 weeks!!! yikes!

I am very sad to see this is no longer available!! I have never had any problems with this wax, and my customers are asking for more! I have very little left in stock, and very disappointed that I will have to look elsewhere for a soy pillar blend!! First time I have ever had to go to another store :(

Terrible

I can understand why this is being discontinued. Used it to make tarts that cracked, broke and were melting at the touch of a hand. I cannot understand why it received a 4 star review.

LV'S Beads n Things/Shop Owner

I used this wax for the first time and I was very pleased with how the votive candles and wax melts turned out. I used 10% fragrance and they smell awesome! I used Pam's recommendation, heating to 190, adding color and fragrance at 185, and cooled to 150 pour. The candles and melts are both smooth, the wax took the color great, and the aroma now fills the room. I have used many various soy waxes in the past but had problems with frosting as well as uneven and pitted tops. I was a bit apprehensive because of the negative reviews but decided to chance it anyway. I am glad that I did. I am sorry to hear that this wax is now being discontinued. I hope the replacement wax is every bit as good as this wax.

Most recent comment by Pam was rave. What type of wick did you use, Pam? BTW, my rating is 3 stars only because I haven't used the product yet.

I use this for tarts, pillar, votive and wax melts. I love how bright the color is when you add it and also you only need 1 oz of fragrance per pound of wax which saves money. The cold and hot throws are amazing. I heat to 190 add color and fragrance at 185, cool to 150 pour. So easy and clean up is a breeze also. I was a little afraid at first making a large pillar, but this wax turned out perfect. Now it is the only wax i use for pillars, tarts, votive, wax melts.

Love!

I have never used any wax other than this one for my wax melts, and I have no intention of changing that. Why change a good thing, right? I heat to around 185, add color, then remove from heat and add 8-10% fragrance oil, then allow to cure for around 1 week. I get perfect, room-filling fragrance throw every time, and I've been using this wax for well over a year now.

Best Wax Ever!

I have been using this wax for years for tarts. It's the best I have found. I use Wellington Fragrance Oils and the scent throw is incredible!

The Only Wax I Use For My Melts & Tarts!

This stuff is incredible. I heat to 185 degrees, add 2 oz. fragrance oil to 1 pound of this wax, cool to 170 and pour. Cure 1 week. It has the most incredible hot and cold scent throws I've come across. Please NEVER discontinue this product! I would be lost!

Love It

I have only used this wax for my melts and I am yet to be disappointed. I heat to 185 then add scent. Stir scent for approximately 2 minutes and cool to 145 then I pour. Cure for 3 day minimum and it is always a success. My most popular scent is Dragon Blood and Clean Cotton.

I love this wax. Temperatures are key. I have the standard mercury thermometer and wait to pour at 120 degrees. The Eco wicks are best and I love all candlescience scents. Good for candles and wax tarts. I love the clamshell containers as well as the tart molds.

A big step a lot of people miss is the cure time. It is a huge difference in throw if you wait about a week before burning or melting.

Give it some time

Kari, don't give up yet! I had the same problems with this wax at first. Great, strong scent when making and pouring, then the scent seemed to disappear after the tarts went in the clamshell. What a disappointment, BUT the scent will make a comeback! What I have started doing is pouring and putting the tarts up for a full week before re-sniff. What a difference that week will make. Maybe they just need more time to cure. Have had fantastic cold & hot throw with Candlescience scents Raspberry Sangria, Peach Nectar, Macintosh Apple, and Golden Rose. Hope that helps!

no scent throw

I make wax tarts and I was so hopeful when I bought this wax. I just knew this was going to be the one I needed.. but once I started making them using 1-1.5 oz of FO per pound I STILL can't get a good throw! I just don't know what to do.. I feel as if I wasted $80. Can someone say which oils you're using?.I use Indiana Candle Company, rustic essentials, candle science and swan creek candle company. They all have been tested with soy. I'm about to give up and move to paraffin but it has a strange petroleum odor. I feel like either way I'm screwed. Someone please help!

Tempermental--Suggestions

I bought this exact brand from a different supplier, I had no problems with hot throws. I got this from here and had all kinds of problems, I had good cold throw but zero hot throw. I experimented with it. I have found with this brand from here, if you are having problems with hot scent throw, try this....For one pound of finished product, 15 ounces of wax and 1 ounce of scent for a light scent, 14 ounces of wax and 2 ounces of scent for extremely strong scent. I experimented Monday 11-16-2015 with this formula (I did the 14 ounces of wax and 2 ounces of scent), let me tell you, even though my apartment is small it ran me out of my own apartment because it was soooooooooooo strong!!! So if you are finding yourself having problems with no hot throw (get someone outside of the home to test for you that knows what they are smelling for) try it. I was having problems with some 444 that I bought, did the exact same thing, perfect!!! Also make sure you are getting your temps up to at least 175-180 degrees. Get you a digital scale!!! Do not measure this stuff in a measuring cup, you literally have to measure by weight. I see people having problems all the time with this wax. I hope this helps the beginners! I would give it 5 stars, but I noticed they went up on their price since the last time I bought it from them.

Would recommend, Great wax!

Used this wax for soy wax tarts and they came out beautiful and held the fragrance very well!! I am a beginner somewhat to making candles and soy tarts but had tried doing this two other brand soy wax(both candles and tarts) I purchased before I found out about Candlescience and the results with the other brands came out horrible. I must say the wax and everything I received from candlescience was of much better quality. My results looked professional after following the video posted on their website. Will definitely purchase more orders of this wax and other products from Candlescience. I'd also like to add that customer service was great and professional before I received my order.

VERY TEMPERAMENTAL - Buy with caution!

I have tried a number of ways to get this wax to work in giving a hot or cold throw, including using many instructions provided here in the reviews and from friends who sell mass amounts of tarts and melts. It's very possible my one 10 lbs bag of wax had an issue, but Candle Science didn't seem to think so. It's either a problem with the wax or a problem with the CS FO. After trouble shooting with CS, melt makers, and keeping track of everything I've tried, I moved to a different brand. Shrugs.

Awesome Wax

I just started making candles this wax has been great with color and scent cold or hot !
Mold release is great to I will buy more soon .
I have read bad feedbacks from People All I can say is you are doing
something wrong if your candles are not coming out right !
Just make some changes until you get it right !
Thanks Candle Science !

We love this wax!

We've been using Ecosoya PB for a few years now, in tarts AND containers, and it's always been our favorite! I see a ton a negative reviews here. I'm pretty sure the complaints are coming from people who are making a mistake, not the fault of the wax itself. ALWAYS pour full pounds, not portions of pounds. We melt to 180 degrees. We always add over one ounce fragrance, up to 1 1/2 ounces. We add scent at between 160 and 155 degrees. Pour at between 145 and 150. These candles need to be properly wicked, and always wicked up! when we use the PB in a container measuring 3 or more inches across, use double wick. We've never ever had any complaints, our hot and cold throw is always amazing, and we'll never use another wax! Guys...just try adjusting your temps/measurements/wicks until you get the best performance.

Pretty wax

I make wax melts in clamshells with this wax. Its absolutely beautiful and smooth. I have had a lot of great hot throws with this wax and also a handful of zero or weak hot throws. However, I do believe it has to do with where the fragrance oil comes from. Most of my candlescience fragances have done well in this wax. I think some scents are just naturally stronger than others. I use 10%

Not the best (i think)

I'm new to candle making, but this wax has both good and bad properties. So far, the cold scent throw has been amazing, but there is very little hot scent throw. Tunneling has never been much of a problem (as long as I used the correct wick). Release from molds have been mediocre - not easy, but after some work it releases without damaging the candle. The most disappointing thing about this wax is the lack of hot scent throw.

I'm at a stand still.
The reviews aren't to good on this wax. I'm making tarts in clamshell containers and I/2 oz. - 1 oz. plastic container cups with lids. I want a great scent throw and my customers to be able to pop the tart right out of the container. HELP

Terrible wax! Hot or cold there is NO throw whatsoever!
I used 1 oz of fragrance oil to 8 oz of this wax. You can't smell the fragrance at all! Will never buy again.

SLJ

Have nothing but trouble with this wax. Worse I have ever used. Tunnels and scent throw is not good.

I have always used this wax for my tarts and have never had a problem in the past. The last box I ordered, the tarts would not release from the molds and there was no scent throw. I just assumed that I had done something wrong when making them. My husband went through kidney cancer, so it was several months before I could make more tarts. I made another batch and the same thing happened. When I complained to Candle Science, they would not replace the wax. This was obviously a bad box of wax. After shipping, I pay almost $100.00 for a 50 lb. box. I have always purchased from CS in the past and never had a problem, but this was very disappointing.

Soy-tastic

I bought this a few weeks ago, I haven't any issues with the soy. As far as FO, I use 1.5 oz. & my melts smell fantastic, hot & cold throw, awesome!

Microwave ecosoya pb?

has anyone microwaved this soy wax? I love the golden 484 for just this reason with fantastic results.

Love it!

This wax works excellent for wax melts! Hot throw has been great! I add color & fragrance at 185 degrees & pour right after stirring. Using 8-9% fragrance oil for stronger scents like Cinnamon Roll & 10-11% for lighter fragrances like Brandied Pear, has really worked good. I have a lot of requests to make more!

Horrible Wax!

This wax hold zero fragarance. When its first poured I smeller dot a tad but there is no hot throw!

Ecosoy PB wax

I love this week but I am having trouble with the hot scent throw in my votives. I used LX-14 for the wick. has anyone tried a different in their votives while using this wax? Help!

best wax ever

Absolutely love this for tarts. Don't be afraid to add more fragrance oil i use 2 oz per lb and they smell awesome !!!! Thank you candle science x

Wow!!!

I'm a first time candle maker, and I decided to go ahead and try experimenting with the wax, dye, and fragrance. My little votives came out so beautifully and they smell absolutely amazing. The first thing I noticed about the candles' texture was that it was SO soft!!! I love how soy wax feels.

Tarts & Tea Lights

I will tell you that this wax can hold more than the 6% per pound. We sale a lot of tea lights, votive and melts. We use 8.5% per pound and it does great. Get lots of praise about our product doing this.

Scent disappears in tarts

I bought this based on the reviews but I am having the same problem as another reviewer that my tarts don't smell. I used 1 oz of the strongest fragrance per pound of wax. The fragrance out of the bottle was incredible but disappeared once poured. I just made my third batch with different fragrances and it is the same issue. I'm afraid to make any more and waste my fragrances. HELP

Help!!!!!

I'm new at making tarts and votives. What temperature should i add fragrance? How much tablespoons of fragrance oil should i add to 6 tarts or a clamshell?? How long do i wait to cure? I want a strong scent throw.

A must have for pillar candles

I have been using this wax for about six months now and have never been happier. It looks prettier than paraffin, it burns cleaner, and it holds scent amazingly well. I haven't had a single complaint from a customer yet, and have even had one customer return her "candle remains" to me so I could melt them into votives for her. To the person who complained that the scent isn't there for the second burn, you may not have added enough scent. I make my candles one at a time and with this wax I've never had an issue with a lack of scent (especially using the scents bought here!) Color holds fantastically and this is a great wax for experimenting and mixing colors. I don't think I'll ever buy anywhere else again!

Candles Only smell the first time you light them

I read on another review that this wax could be used to make container candles as well, so I decided to take a chance and buy it because of how many stars it had. I am happy with the appearance of the candles, they come out beautifully. But sadly after you have lit the candle and let it burn for a bit, you won't smell the fragrance the next time you light the candle again. I wish Candle Science would sell a sample pack, or at least 1 pound bags of the waxes. That way you wouldn't be able to buy 10 pounds of wax just to find out that it doesn't work for you.

Please include a 1 pound bag of wax in your product selection. It would save a lot of headaches.

Sadly disapointed

We normally order our wax from another company, decided to order from you since we purchase everything else through your wonderful web site. Sadly, our purchase of this Ecosoya PB Pillar Soy Wax was not the same as what we have been ordering elsewhere. The description was the same as what we usually purchase from another company but the wax was definetly different. Not sure if maybe we were shipped a different type of wax and it was mislabeled but your Ecosoya PB Pillar Soy Wax is sadly not the same as what we have purchased elsewhere.

This was not a bad wax, it was just not the same as what we purchase. The ONLY reason I rated it 1 star is because it's not what we expected. we used it all but was just not happy with the results. We loveeeeee your fragrance oils and dye chips and will continue ordering all of that product and will try other products from you. This one experience will not change our minds of your company. Thank you :)

Great Wax

This wax is excellent for tarts, votives, and pillars..made my very first pillar today. Could not have asked for a more beautiful result...I can't say enough about this wax...I love it..

Great wax for a beginner.

New to candlemaking but I have exp with bath and body products. I made tarts and votives to start. My votives turned out great! Very easy. One pour and perfect. My tarts however have zero
Hot scent throw and I don't know why. Not blaming the wax as I have plenty of throw in a votive. It's something I am doing. Tried twice. Two diff pour temps. Two diff temps I added fragrance. Still nothing. Wish I could figure it out! Anyways, I would recommend this wax to anybody new to this art as its simple and forgiving. Wax pops RIGHT out of the mold!

Finally a wax for tarts that doesn't get mushy.

Coupled with Candle Science's high quality clamshells that actually lock and stay locked (thank you!) this wax is perfect for wax tarts. Don't pour too hot but don't wait too long. They set up fast. The owner of one of the shops I sell in was very pleased. Kudos Candle Science on a great wax for tarts!

Wow! Super Pleased

I just got this today and used it on my tarts and container candles. The wax is amazing, not to mention I did not need to re pour. The tarts were superb. I love it!

Amazing wax!

Purchased this wax to make votives and they look amazing! Does require a second pour. Mold release is clean and easy. Cleaning the equipment form the wax is very time consuming (not easy to remove from pour pot), which is my only negative with this wax.

The Best Wax Ever !

I originally got this wax to just use for my tarts , which turned out fabulous but I have also started using this to make my container candles with as well. I had a customer tell me that she has not even lit her candle yet and she can smell it everytime she walks into her house. It just works out for the best if you have candle wax left over from pouring a candle but not enough to make another candle but just enough that you can just pour into the tart mold , two products with one wax , gotta love it and I know I do ! Definately worth the money !!!

great wax

I just got this wax a week ago, just bought 10 lbs. because I wanted to try it out and I was very pleased with it. coming back to order 50lb. more.

The Best Wax For Tarts!

This is definitely the best soy wax for tarts! The tarts turn out so pretty and nice. I will definitely use this one from now on for my tarts! Great product!

LOVE IT

THIS IS THE BEST WAX,HIGHLY RECOMMENDED,I EVEN USE IT FOR CONTAINER CANDLES,THE FRAGRANCE RELEASE IS GREAT AND LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.
THANK YOU SO MUCH

OMG!!!

Love it, will NEVER ever leave it! Best wax ever for my tarts! pops right out!

Very nice product

This is my first time using this wax and it works great. My first batch of tarts turned out perfect. Nice release from the mold.
