great wax for mixing!

This is a great mixing wax. I use it with 444 and it's perfect! I don't recommend using it alone, because it always comes out with a lot of frosting on its own.

Owner of Light of the World Candles

I bought the 415 soy wax for my candles and I am well pleased with this product. It burns smooth and clean. Works well with reggi-glow dye chips.

If you are looking for good natural smooth wax for your products, 415 is the kind to have.

What wick works best

Donna what wicks do you use wirh this wax. What do you find that works best for you.

LOVE Making Candles

Just wanted you all to know that I am now obsessed with making candles since I found your site. I LOVE all your products!!!! They are PERFECT! I've made candles with other products but they do not compare to this. Now I'm thinking of branching out into making floating candles and soaps. Thanks CandeScience! Keep up the FABULOUS work.

good mixer

I am very new to candle making, I have been doing it for a month now. I bought a very good book on Amazon by Jameel Nolan ; "The Ultimate Guide to Soy Candle Making". I would never know how to make them without that book. But anyway I have been experiencing with wax and found that as suggested by
candlescience 415 should only be used as part of a mix. It just is not good alone. Lots of frosting and tunneling . But when I mix with 464 it turns out fabulous! I have used several combinations but 50/50 has worked the best for me.

Great deal for quality wax

I purchased the 10lb bag.

What i liked so much about this product:
-I found the size to be a great amount to have plenty for experimenting and still have plenty to make some final products.
-The wax melted easily and evenly in a double boiler.
-Its easy to mix in scents and colors to the melted wax.
-The wax is easily high enough quality to sell at farmers markets, or for a small business.

My Recommendations about this product:
Do not use for pillars, tarts, or melts for soy wax is very soft and will make a large mess if burned in any form except if properly made in a container.
The color has a nice creamy color to it with a slight yellowish off white color. I found the color satisfying also there is no need to add huge amounts of color since it mixes so well and all color dyes on candle science are very, VERY pigmented.

Great Wax!

I just started making Soy candles for myself and to give as gifts. I have read a lot of reviews and have learned a lot from them! I have finally figured out what works best for the GW 415 in my particular environment, I live in Maine. House temp. Is usually 65 to 67, a little drafty in winter. Anyway, I heat Wax to 185 degrees, take off stove, gently stir in 1.5 oz. of FO/ 1 lb. melted wax. I use a glass mixing bowl with pour spout. I let the wax cool slowly on the counter, stir a few times gently. I pour when wax turns just a bit cloudy and a little slushy I don't use a thermometer here.( approx. 45 mins or so) When ready to pour, I tilt my glass container and pour very slowly at first than straighten out the glass and continue to pour to fill line just before glass narrows at top. I then gently wrap glass(s) with a small towel, clip with clothespin. I have found this method to work great, I might have a tiny hole on top, then, I just use a heat gun on low and remelt the top and it will end up smooth. I really don't need to do this, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. This wax has a great hot throw after a couple days of curing, better after a week or more. Very pleased! Will buy more!

First try with soy

I have had great success with paraffin waxes and have ventured into the world of soy wax containers. The 415 has holes and quite a bit of frosting with the first pour and also after every burn still frosting at the top. Others have suggested mixing with the 464 and heating the containers, so I will try these tips as my containers were room temp at 75 degrees. I will say Excellent cold and hot throw. After making one 24 oz. candle my house smelled amazing during my curing process. Every time I come home and walk in the door, smells amazing. I almost don't even have to light it, but what fun is that?! Also the color dye chip maple was darker, richer compared to paraffin candle was more orange. Maple color dye matched the color picture on the order page exactly with this soy wax. (even though order page states was made with the IGI 4794 paraffin- which I have not personally tried, I had used 4630 harmony blend which I like very much.) I will keep testing and finding the best formula for me. Happy Candle Making!

Great Wax With A Little Something Extra!!!

Decided to get back in to it candle making and so i tried Golden Brands 415. Took me a few batches to get my recipes down again and proper pour temps but over all this wax is great. But after a few weeks i ended throwing about half the wax in the dumpster. Nothing wrong with the wax. I was just so Pissed Off! the reason because i discovered something a little extra at the bottom of the box. I happened to lift up the bag of wax and uncovered a huge cockroach nest. CURSE YOU! candlescience. now i have to deal with making sure i get rid of the ones that happened to escape!!

464 wax

Love this wax. I use this during the cooler times for shipping reasons. During the hot times, I use the 444. Love them both. I am curious Simone, since you mix the 415 with the 464 and you say it holds more scent, what is the max in ounces you use per pound?


This seems like a great wax in every way! But why shouldn't I use this for tarts?

Best Soy Wax for Blending

I blend this wax with the GB 464 from Candle Science as well. I use 3/4 of the 464 and 1/3 of this 415 wax. It increases the scent throw, both hold and cold. I mix it with the 464 for appearance reasons. I do sell my candles and my customers aren't concerned if their candles are pretty, as long as they burn properly and are highly scented, that's what they really want! I explain to my customers that pretty doesn't mean better You could have a pretty candle with NO scent throw then have an imperfect candle with excellent scent!

Great for home use.

This wax is easy to use, making a smooth topped candle in one one pour. It holds & throws fragrance quite well, but colors tend to frost once it has been burned for a while. It burns cleanly, with no soot, that I have noticed, and it is a pure soy wax, which appeals to me. So I would recommend it for home use, but due to the frosting, I am not sure how good it would be for candles that are intended for sale.
