464 Troubleshooting Tips

Not getting a smooth finish on the surface of your candles?

  • Try pouring 5-10°F (2.8-5.6°C) hotter.
  • Don’t let your candles cool on surfaces like marble and granite. These materials draw out the heat from the candles too quickly.
  • Try a second pour or a heat gun to smooth the surface.

Not getting a strong fragrance throw?

  • Ensure you are curing your candles for two weeks to get the best results from the fragrance.
  • Make sure you are adding fragrance at 185°F (85°C).
  • Re-examine the wicking.
  • Make sure you are evaluating the scent throw of the candle in an appropriately-sized space relative to the size of the candle.

Candle Maker's Notes:
This wax can be a little too soft for the summer heat. If you are shipping finished candles in hot weather, you may want to consider a soy wax with a higher melt point, like Golden Brands 444.

The Best Wax!

I have been using 464 for many years now to make my candles and I have been so satisfied on how my candles have turned out. There are other brands on the market but I refuse to stray away from Candlescience. An amazing company that cares about their customers.

4 out of 5 Stars.

I must say I love the 464 soy wax! However, the last few bags I ordered, I noticed it taking longer to melt down and notice clumping which I've never have with previous order.

I’ve been using this wax for quite some time and I make sure I follow all CS instructions through and through. The only issue I’m having is I don’t smell anything whenever the candle is lit. It’s been this way with several candles that I’ve made. They smell really good when mixing and when the wax settles in the jar but when lit I don’t smell anything. Even after being lit for hours. I even up’d the FO% and still no change. I would love for my candles to fill the entire room and that’s not what I’m getting. Could it be the wax I’m using? Could it be the CD 18 wicks I use? I’m desperate and would some guidance. Thank you!

cloudy soy wax

I have been using the 464 wax and have been very happy with it! Very nice wax! However, the last 45 lb box I got was horrible! I could tell right away when I opened it, the flakes didn't look the same as usual. And sure enough, when I melted it down, the wax was very cloudy. I remembered seeing this problem on the website, so went back and read the article. I followed the tips they gave for working with this problem. True, it does get mostly clear eventually if you heat it for a while, but it is very inconvenient. But for anyone else out there who experiences this, follow the tips for heating cloudy wax and good luck! Hopefully the next box will be better!! Don't give up with one bad box! I really like Candle Science's quality over all! I order all my supplies right here!! Up until now I would've given a 5 star review on the wax but knocked it down a lil because of this last box. I did have very helpful customer service tho!

My last shipment came with one bag of wax totally opened and it was all over the box. I think it’s important to put the wax bag into another bag / ziplock. But beside that I have been using this wax for sometime and it’s awesome.
