Great Wax

I use this wax just as recommended with 2oz per lb and it works wonderful. The cold and hot throw is amazing if you're using a quality fragrance.


I have nothing but GOOD THINGS to say about this wax! AMAZING hot AND cold throw...looks beautiful AND performs perfectly every time! My customers love my melts/tarts and this wax is the only wax I use for them. :D

I like it!

I really love this wax. I enjoy making wax melts and this wax is ideal! It releases easily and so far I have not seen any frosting. I am very happy with the products I buy from Candlescience and this product is no exception. They only sell top quality !


I’m hitting the dislike button on this wax... the cold and hot throw is horrible. I got not frosting and I got no smell.

Price Jump???

I bought this wax approximately two weeks ago. I loved it, but I go back in to purchase to see a price increase. I've spent so much time working on a budget and calculating my costs and then this so quickly!! This is upsetting. I would give five stars because of the product, but the rating goes down if things aren't consistent.

I'm in love!!

I'm a newbie to this industry and I ordered this wax out of constant frustration trying to make melts out of GB 464. At the time I didn't know how soft 464 was and my melts looked more like a coat of powdered sugar had been applied with all the frosting. I got the package in, tore open the box and waited with bated breath. I am smiling from ear to ear!! Absolutely perfect molds, smooth as glass and released with such ease!! Thank you.. I will be going on a melt pouring rampage from here on out!

I love this parasoy blend! My customers love the wax melts I make with it. Very strong hot throw after two weeks of curing. Very minimal frosting but that doesn't bother me. It also takes dye beautifully. I thought about switching to a less expensive wax but I'm very happy so I'll continue to purchase.

Better than expected

I poured my first ever tarts. I used Pumpkin Caramel Crunch and this wax and no color. I was very nervous. They turned out fantastic. I’m just using them for personal use. The throw was fantastic and the house smelled so yummy. Thank you Candle Science for all the great info on your site.

Love This Wax

I bought a 10 pound bag of this wax to test out and love it. I had no problems whatsoever with my melts cracking, and they looked beautiful. I started making my melts with my 464 whenever I ran out of this and I've had nothing but problems with my melts as far as cracking coming out of the tarts or molds, and they frosted a lot with the 464. I'm seriously thinking about just going with this wax for all my melts because I sell a lot of them.

Awful frosting

I really wanted to like this wax but the frosting is horrible. I actually had someone ask me if it was mold.

I do not care for this wax at all. I have used a variety of scents and can not get a hot or cold throw. I have used at 9 and 12% FO.

Cracking & Crumbling Tarts

They look great, smell great but crack. I am using the melt & tart soy wax and it continually cracks. Any suggestions? I do dry them in a warm environment. has anyone added golden 464 to this? has anyone switched over to the new ones? I miss the old pillar blend.

Gift Store Owner

This wax is great for wax melts. My customers keep coming back for more. I'm very happy with the hot throw too.

I think this wax works great. My customers LOVE my wax melts. I have thought about changing to 464 many times because it is less expensive and may do that at some point, but this ain't broke so why try to fix it?? I have had no bad luck with this wax and have ordered many times. Maybe I have been lucky but I love it. Also, keep in mind that this is a natural plant based product.... it will not always be exactly the same, just like no two plants are alike, even if they are the same kind. You can go to the store and buy 2 apples from the same bin, both the same type, and they are always a bit different. I would assume this would be the same for plant based waxes. I have not found any of the differences to be deal breakers. I hope you all love it too. :)

Inconsistent results....and FROSTING!

This wax is decent but unreliable. Sometimes I have great results, other times it's frosting city. I've also noticed it doesn't always harden as much as I want and breaks off unevenly.

Awesome for Melts

This is the best Wax for Melts I used.

More frosting than a birthday cake.

This wax has great cold and hot throw characteristics, lasting many many hours.. Sadly the wax does NOT resist frosting as stated. We had absolutely terrible frosting with dye drops, bad frosting with blocks and even frosting with uncolored wax.

Frosts so much

Since the Eco Soya has been discontinued, I had to try this. I am so disappointed with how much frosting my wax melts have. I have adjusted the temps for pouring and mixing the scents to no avail. I will not buy again.

With discontinuation of EcoSoyaPB I had to use this. Heated to 188° added scent, poured at 160° into clamshells. Visually and texturally perfect, cold throw pretty good, hot throw is terrible! Will not purchase again!

I like it!

I love this wax! It is very easy to work with.I only make my tarts with this wax and my candles with the new Ecosoya.

Tart making issues

I have been working through my first 50lb batch of the new soy melt wax. first 80 turned out great, second batch is cracking everywhere? What did I do wrong? I heat to 180ish add fragrance at 175 and pour around 165.

Good for wax tarts

This wax has performed beautifully when making my wax melts and tarts. It takes the form of the molds nicely and doesn't crumble with a bit of pressure. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is that it does frost when it says it's made not to. Besides that no complaints.

Good and bad

I ordered this wax a few days ago and just decided to try it out yesterday. The first thing I noticed is that it takes much longer to melt than the 464 wax that I'm used to using. Which is fine because I assume that's due to the fact that it hardens quicker and more solid than The 464. The only thing that I am disappointed in is that it says it resists frosting. And when you don't add color to the wax that seems to be true. But I've noticed that there is a good bit of frosting in my wax melt clamshells when I add color. This is somewhat disappointing due to the fact that I bought this wax specifically to avoid frosting. Aside from that I have no complaints.


I like it. When I purchased this new wax ( I used to buy Ecosoya PB) I was bummed out that we couldn't use this wax to make candles... However, I've made tea lights with this wax using CSN tea light wicks and they turned out great! My tea lights burn so nice! And that's why I'm giving five stars. My clamshell tarts came out great as well. Very smooth and hot throw is great. Make sure not to pour below 160. This wax sets fast.

I love making tarts

I was ordering wax off line for 2 months there is a warehouse ten minutes from me open 3 days out of the that does amazing orders I'm paying 10 dollars less for my 10lb bag now they have over 1000 oils soon as they open I'm heading that way I've only been there once I'm pumped I spent so much money first time I walked in there didn't know it existed I was looking for molds online took 10 minutes from my house I was like really love it 😀❤🌸

Easy to work with

I used to use a blend of eco soya PB and another soy for my tarts but when that was discontinued and I ran out I decided to give this tart wax a shot. It's easy to use. Sets about as fast as my previous blend. Nice even creamy appearance, no frosting. The throw is fantastic. One cube and our whole house smells lovely. The problem I'm having (and a few others) is it does not break at the seam for clamshell molds. It crumbles into the adjacent cubes. It's not a deal breaker and I'm sure I can figure out what to add to harden it up but it's worth noting. I'd recommend giving it a shot :)

Great for clamshells

I had been making candles with 464, but made the switch to clamshells because they're easier honestly. So far, (20 lbs later) I like this wax a lot

Heat to 180, add FO and dye, mix slowly and consistently (cools quick though!)
Start pouring at 165-160
Go as long as you can without moving the products after pouring.

Great cold throw. So far good warm throw also

First test turned out alright, will test more.

I'll come back and update once I've tested more, but my first batch turned out okay. Visually, they look a little messy as it's not a solid consistent cream. There are white flecks that make my melts look less professional, they do bother me. It could be that I need to adjust pour temp, but I have only tested one batch following the instructions listed on candlescience. They did stick in my moulds a bit, which does worry me, as that will definitely be a deal breaker and a nightmare for production. The solid texture of my melts seems a bit soft for my liking. I actually had a few melts break in half as I was removing them from the mold...again another deal breaker if that happens regularly. I have not tested the hot throw yet so I can not speak to that. I will continue to test.

Works Great!

This was my first time using this wax to make soy wax melts, so I was a little nervous. After my first batch of wax melts came out perfect, I decided I better make a few more batches before writing my review just in case I had beginners luck. :) It's safe to say that I am very pleased with this wax. Wax melts are SO much easier to make than candles! Here is exactly what I did step by step in case some of you are curious.
1. Melted 15 oz of this wax to 185 degrees F.
2. Took wax off heat and poured in 1.5 oz of FO in @ 180 degree F.
3. Poured @ 160 degree F into six clam shells. (Make sure to bend the back of the clam shell back so it will stay flat more easily before pouring)
4. Let harden. (they seriously harden super fast)

All of my wax melts had smooth tops and no cracking! I love candlescience, I just wish I lived closer so I didn't have to pay for shipping. :(

I am very disappointed with this product I have had nothing but issues with it.

First: It is not throwing a good hot scent. With the eco soya I got a great throw.

Second: when using the clam shell they are not breaking clean it breaks way over on the melts next to it.

Third: when using it in my silicone molds it does not release and breaks off and parts stick to the mold.

Over all I'm very disappointed and basically waisted my money on a 50lb. Box plus shipping.

Please don't waste your money on this like I did.
