Amazing Wax

This wax is AMAZING. Just stuck on which wicks to use for my 8 oz tins . I think I’m wasting money at this point and it’s getting frustrating. But I love this wax , the hot throw and cold throw is OUTSTANDING. I always read the reviews , I wish you could comment on other people reviews because we ( the people who need help with certain things ) could ask the other people for advice and see have they tried what we tried .

The wicking with this wax is running me Crazy. I have tired LX and Eco. I have tired different size wicks and not is working. They all mushroom and give off smoke. At this point I’m wasting money and losing customers. I want to use this wax because the HT is great.

Thank you so much for your product review and for allowing us to help out! As always it's a pleasure to help in any way that we can!

This wax is Perfect sinkholes and all

I’ve worked
With pb600 and soy bliss. Both look way better after they’re curried but IGI 6006 is a stronger hot throw. I would touch this formulation. It’s perfect.


Love this wax!

I love working with this wax! I loved Soy wax but I always Had trouble getting a good scent throw. This wax is definitely a game changer. I’m still trying to find the perfect wick. I tried Several Eco wicks but am not feeling it. I ordered Some LX wicks so I’m hoping it does better!

I just switched to this wax and my gosh it's SO much easier to work with! The CT and HT was amazing just 24 hours after pouring. I had to do a quick wick test and was amazed that my entire room was filled with the smell! I highly recommend!


new to this wax and love it

i am new using this 6006 wax... used to do 464... i am loving this 6006... do not love the sink holes, but they are fixable with heat gun.... just not exactly sure what cd wick to use for it in a 3.5 inch diameter 12 ounce jar.... please help?

CandleScience Reply

Hi There! We're so glad to hear you're enjoying working with IGI 6006 so far, although we're sorry to hear you've been having some trouble with sinkholes! Sinkholes are a common issue that we see in candle-making but we're happy to confirm that they are fixable with a few adjustments. We have a few great tips for this specific issue in our Soy Wax Troubleshooting Guide here which you can find by clicking the link here: www.candlescience.com/wax/soy-wax-trouble-shooting-guide

To answer your question about wicks, we would recommend trying the ECO 10 wick to start with IGI 6006 and a 3.5" diameter container. Depending on the results from your burn tests and your specific fragrance and dye choices, you may need to adjust the wick size up or down from there, however, that should be a great place to begin your testing! You can find this and more wick recommendations for IGI 6006 in our wick guide here: www.candlescience.com/learning/wick-guide It's a great resource that will provide a suggestion based on your wax and container choices, with all of our recommendations coming from in-house testing!

Amazing cold and hot throw!!!! Love it!

I am really loving igi 6006 so far. I was originally using pro blend 600 but was just getting average HT. I get great hot and cold throw with 6006. Still trying to find the perfect wick . You do get occasional sink holes and ugly pours sometimes but nothing a heat gun won’t fix . My candles come out beautiful and smell amazing .

Nice cold throw, hot throw comes in waves… trying different wicks to perfect. Has anyone tried to use LX 22 with this wax? Any recommendations?

CandleScience Reply

Hello! Thanks so much for leaving a review. Our top picks for use with IGI 6006 come from the ECO wick series, but the LX series can certainly work too! The size will be dependent on the diameter of your container. A member of our Support team has also reached out to you via email to assist further.

No Hot Throw

Smooth tops, but usually get sinkholes that I fix with a heat gun. The cold throw is good, but having issues with getting the right wick for the hot throw.



So I finally did my first candles last night and no CT whatsoever..
I am so disappointed.. I followed the rules to mix the fragrance at 185 and pour at 170... :(
I give a 3 so far..


Love this wax

I been making candles for three years now. I absolutely love this wax. I make 8 OZ candles.
It took awhile for me to get the right wick and technique down and now I feel like a PRO LOL. I get a very strong cold throw and hot throw using this wax. I noticed the price went up on this wax recently but it’s still a good price considering you can make a lot of 8 OZ candles with 40 lbs.
thank you candle science.


Great Wax

6006 gives me amazzzzingg cold throw and hot throw!! i just dont like that it leaves black soot so im currently trying to figure out how to prevent it. Sad to see the price go up and most things are out of stock.



I can’t good a good hot throw with 6006. I think I’ve tried every wick out there. So frustrated!

444 to 6006

I switched from 444 to 6006 with hopes of having a better HT and I'm sure glad I did. Most of the Fragrance oils I'm using have amazing CT and HT in this wax. You do get the occasional sinkhole but nothing a heat gun won't cure. I have also used this for wax melts and have had success.


Wicking this wax is hard!!

I can't find a right wick for this wax, 2Eco2s as recommended for 16oz jar which was too small. I wicked up still not a full melt pool pluse there was sooting. By the way no HT whatsoever. Tried HTP and LX still no HT.
I am making candles as a hobby and don't mind a challenge but this starting to get a bit tooooo much. Very confused and stuck!!!!
Please HELP!!!!

Love This Wax

I just switched over to this wax & I love it. at first I was unsure to order it bc of all of the bad reviews, but I must of done something right. test tried a couple for the first time this week, burned amazing, smelled awesome, & i'm happy. The ONLY thing I will mention is that around the wick some candles had sink holes. But no big deal, I used my heat gun & filled the holes and melted the tops for a smooth look and it came out amazing. I am happy I switched. Sometimes you just got to make a change and experiment a little bc everything does play a part!!


Love this wax! Just want to know when or if this wax will be available on the west coast?

Sink holes

I have been using this wax faithfully for the past few years and have loved it. But this last batch is awful. Every single candle has sink holes. I can’t figure it out. I am using the same process. My only conclusion is this is a bad batch of wax. So frustrating!

No ht, cured for 5 days. 40lbs and 100$ down the drain very up set 🤬


IGI 6006

This wax is really easy to use, I switched from 464. Although 6006 does have sink wholes once it cools, this is a characteristic of 6006 depending on the vessel that you use. I started working with 8oz jelly jars the aroma from my 8oz jelly jars fill my living room and kitchen which is an open floor plan. I also use CS fragrance oils and follow the guidelines of heating wax to 190 add FO at 180 stir then pour in vessel at 170, but follow your own testing being that several things come into play with candles, such as your environment, the humidity of the area in which you are making the candles, and how much FO you use, I try and stick to 8% for most some I have to drop down to 6%. -7%.
This was is very easy to use I LOVE it the CT/Ht is O-mazing!!!

Naja Candle Co

Disappointed in this wax

This was my first time using this wax.. I heard great things about it especially how it hold Color since I was having so much problems with C3 and C6.. decided to keep those waxes white and try this one for my color candles!!! Well my candles came out beautiful!! Perfect pour.. smooth tops.. my deep purple came out beautiful and perfect glass adhesion!!! HOWEVER... Absolutely no CT and HT!!!!! I heated wax to 185, added FO/Dye 10 % FO at 185 I stirred slowly for 2 minutes and poured the wax at 175.. after curing for 5 days.. I smelt absolutely nothing!!!!!! I wicked my candle and did the burn test and all I smell is the heat from the wick 😩. Wasted wax and FO!!!! I may have gotten a bad slab... I am so scared to try the wax again because I don’t want to waste my FO!!!!!!

Christina Lenore

best of both

I started off using GB444 but was frustrated with the scent throw, appearance and curing times. Decided to give this a go and am so happy I did. This wax is the best of both, better glass adhesion, vibrant colors, good H/C throw, and quicker turn around time for me (can ship in 2 weeks instead of 3). I use it in my own branded candles, embeds, and melts, as well as my white label candles.

Fundamental Magick

Great HT and CT! Highly recommended!

After reading some terrible reviews of this parasoy wax I was pretty nervous about purchasing. I compared this to two other parawax from different suppliers. This parawax had a better HT and CT than the other two, hands down! I had no issues getting great scent release with the three different scents I tested in my mason jars and melts. Maybe there was a bad batch that went out? I purchased just a month ago and have had no issues whatsoever.

AfterBurn Candle Co

Love this wax so much

Love this wax very much! I have a question though, what is a good temp to add the FO I'm sorry if I missed it.

CandleScience Reply

Hi Nika! When using any of our fragrances in any of the waxes we carry, we recommend always adding your fragrance oil to your wax at 185°F. This is the optimal temperature for the wax and fragrance to bind in order to provide the best scent throw!

Best Wax. Always Consistent. High-Quality!

For the past three years of our candle business I have been using IGI6006 parasoy blend, purchased from CS. We just received 10 cases of this wax last week and there is no issue with CT/TH. Wax is performing as expected. I have 45+ fragrances and never experienced an issue with the throw of our candles.

Rick Maloney- Owner, Pour & Penchant

What happened!

I'm a faithful user of this wax for ALL my candles and it usually performs very well.This last batch was clearly faulty, as I've never had an issue before with HT throw. I'll need to order more wax, but as a very small business, this causes big expense issues for me. Hopefully the next batch of IGI-6006 is corrected before my next order.

Best of the BEST!

I wasted so much on Soy wax trying to achieve the look I was looking for and each and every batch failed! Switched to this wax and I instantly fell in love! You definitely have to play around with it and figure out what is to your liking but I was able to achieve what I was looking for.


First time buying IGI 6006. After 3 days of curing, I got a great HT. I used a vessel that is over 4" in diameter.


No CT or HT

So I ordered 10 pounds in September and loved the HT and CT was out of this world so I ordered a full case this new year haven’t changed anything in my process and am getting 0 throw of either kind across 6 different FOs I’m highly upset don’t waste your money I’m testing my 10th candle hoping it’ll work also cured for over a week

No CT or HT

I did research on this wax before purchasing and heard great things about its cold and hot throws. My candle is wicked with the recommended wick for the vessel and it has the max fragrance load added at the suggested temp. Not sure why there is no CT or HT.

I am highly disappointed in the IGI 6006. Absolutely no CT or HT. My first time using this wax. Added FO at 180 degrees and poured at 140 degrees using the Libbey tumbler. I have been using the Comfort Blend and the CT and HT are excellent!! I’m bummed about this purchase..☹️

I have been using this wax for YEARS. Prior to 6006 I had tried multiple soys from CS as well as other suppliers, all were good but I wanted BETTER. Then I decided to give this a try and I have never looked back! I have never had an issue with a “bad batch” like so many are claiming below, and although I can understand those concerns... you can’t judge a wax by a small businesses ONE bad batch. That is what testing is for. I pray these poor reviews don’t lead to Candle science ditching this product.


I tried the iGi 6006 for the first time in 12/30/20.i just ordered 10 lbs I wanted to test it out first I made only 5 candles and let me just tell you guys the ct and ht are amazing. I was using the soy 464 but wasn't getting a good ht so I did some research for a month before I decided to make this change I've been using soy 464 for 1 year. And this is the best decision I've ever made IAM so 😊😊😊😊😊. Sorry but I will not go back to 464. The ht that I get with the igi6006 is amazing. Also when using iGi 6006 the best wicks to use are htp I used the 8oz jelly jars with the htp 105 and it work beautiful ❤️❤️❤️ ht and ct is great I used 8% fo.

First Time User

I brought this blend because I’m not a fan of soy wax but I wanted to be natural. I needed to have a great heart throw in order to sell to my customers. After testing my first candle I was amazed at the scent that was coming through. Are used wicks ECO 8 and 8 ounce tins. I couldn’t be more pleased. Are used 10% fragrance oils which came from CS. It gave me a clean burn straight to the bottom. I will purchase again.


Highly disappointed

I bought this wax after researching for a long time. It seemed like it would be the best wax for scent throw however, it’s been about two months since I’ve purchased this wax and have wasted about 25 containers trying to test this wax out. Let me tell you, by far this wax is worst than any wax I have dealt with. I have let the different batches of candles cure any time from a week to a month and my candles are odorless. I’m supper bummed out because everyone seemed to love this wax, but is just simply not working for me. I wish there were more tips on how to make this wax work, at this point I’m very frustrated.

Owner LWW Luhrswickedwicks

I wish I could post pictures of how bad this wax batch I received was. First of all, I bought two 40lb cases from candle science, and two from Lonestar. Every single candle pitted horribly. I used my exact same recipe and did not vary a bit. I have spent more time fixing my candles than making them. When we received this wax, it had a yellow tint. the lone star's brand was white. I immediately emailed support, they told me not to worry. So we poured. Two hours later, we noticed the lack of quality that candle science provides. This is not ig6006 wax. And the pictures are extremely misleading. Horrible product. They need to make this right immediately. This is the kind of stuff that can destroy a small business.
Is there any quality control with your product? Do you test it before selling it? WOW!

Hi! A member of our team is reaching out to you to help troubleshoot!


I have purchased 2 slabs of IGI 6006 on 2 different occasions. The one I purchased recently must be bad because I tried different fragrances and I couldn’t get any hot throw at all. It was certainly a waste of money for me on the whole slab. The last slab worked well but this one disappointed me. I need to replenish and I’m reluctant to get it again.


Wick issues

I'm using the IGI 6006 in a 8oz tin. I went with the wick chart here and it told me to use a eco8 wick the melt pool with that seemed to small so I tested a eco10,12 both still did not have a full melt pool.So I tried a eco14 that had a full melt pool but flame was high and the wick started to mushroom! I'm so confused and stuck I need help!.



I am having similar issues with this wax. This is actually the first review I’ve ever left, I’ve received jars broken before and never once felt to reach out to the company because I know how shipping can get pretty careless. Completely not your fault. But the hot throw is basically non existent. I’ve tested 4 different wicks with this candle, I am using 10%fragrance load & still NO HOT THROW WHATSOEVER.

Candle science, can we please get a solution to this ASAP!? Very frustrating!!!



I’m not sure what’s going on but I’m having issues with my igi 6006 wax. It’s causing a great amount of soot and the hot throw is not coming through. I’m using all the same products and tools as in jars wicks and I get my fragrance from candlescience also.I have an event this weekend and already made 30 12oz candles. I have over half of the 40lb case of wax I bought left. I’ve never had issues with this wax until now this was my absolutely favorite I didn’t change anything so I know it has to be the wax. Can someone contact me ASAP? I really don’t want to give a bad rating but this is beyond me I feel let down !

40lbs of useless wax. Time and money wasted.

I recently purchased 40lbs of this wax based on previous good experiences with it. Unfortunately for me I’ve had to refund several customers because they weren’t getting a HT. I added FO and poured at the recommended temp as well as use the recommended wicks. Clearly it’s a faulty batch. This wax is horrible and the inconsistency of the quality is very costly to small businesses like myself.


Love the Wax!

Does this wax have Vybar already mixed in?


no smell horrible wax

i am very disappointed with this wax . no hot throw or cold throw. the wax came damaged and smell horrible. candle science you need to fix this problem. i am losing money.


Major Soot problem

I love using this wax because it is so easy with a perfect smooth top that stays smooth throughout the burn but the sooting is a major problem when you get halfway down the jar. I am using straight sided tumblers 3” opening. I’ve tried CD 10, CD 8, CD 6 and LX 14 all with unbearable sooting. I’ve tried 6% fragrance load, 8% and 10% all with terrible sooting. HELP!

Best wax we have tried

IGI 6006 from Candle Science is not only the best wax we have tried, but we noticed a difference when we purchased from other suppliers that were closer to our Shop and Ship location. The same wax purchased from other suppliers was more yellow and had extreme difficulties with wicking, as we wouldn't get full pools. Candle Science wax has been very consistent in texture, appearance and performance. If you care about the quality of your products, we definitely recommend buying this wax from Candle Science, even if you end up paying more.

wick type and size for wooden and regular


I am curious what the correct wick size is for 16 oz apothecary candle jars with this wax. I read CD 18" my candles are tunneling and I'm afraid to order the wrong size.

CandleScience Reply

Hi! If you are using the IGI 6006 wax in a 16 oz Apothecary Jar, we recommend starting with double wicking ECO 2's! That means you will be using two ECO 2 wicks in your candle.

Finding the right wick

Hello! I've been using this wax for sometime now and it's gives a great scent throw but I need the correct wick to use. I use mason jars 8oz and 16oz but I do have soot but I am needing the right wick. Thanks!

I really enjoy working with this wax. It has a excellent CT and HT. The only thing I am having a difficult time with is finding the right wick. I’ve used all the ECO series and the CD series ive also tried wooden wicks. I just seem to get a lot of soot. My jars diameter is 3.75 and I have tried the recommendation that’s on your wick guide I even went up and down on the wicks. I’ve tested with one, two and three wicks but I’m still getting soot. Please help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! A member of our team will be reaching out to you soon!

IGI 6006 is amazing, but need help wicking.

I love working with this wax. It gives me perfect CT and HT, it's creamy, it melts evenly, it burns slowly, it does need some TLC for the sinkholes in taller jars. The issue I have found is that the wicking for this wax is quite difficult, I use CD and I'm looking for a better one. Any recommendations??


Now for those who gave this a bad review and those considering buying this wax I want to put things into perspective. I bought this wax maybe 3 months ago because I heard the CT was comparable to the high content soy and the HT was even better. I hated it I hated everything about this wax I was really frustrated and at the end of my wits because I had tried 3 different soy waxes before this to no avail BUT boy let me tell you everything you’ve heard about candle making is true and it’s not until you’ve actually learned how to make a perfect batch that you come to understand and appreciate all that you’d been given advices about. For those who say they have poured at 185 and still no hot throw what I have learned is if your thermometer is laying in the pot after you’ve taken it off the heat source and the reading is 185 lift your thermometer so that it is not touching the bottom of the pot to get the accurate reading, the pot may be steady at 185 but the wax might be hotter so that should fix your FO pouring problem. Mix the wax before adding FO to make sure all of the additives have melted even if the wax is crystal clear. I’ve heard this one a lot and I’ve also seen many complain that the recommended wicks for the containers they’ve bought did not work out. TESTING WICKS YOURSELF is a MAJOR part of the process MAJOR! The recommended wicks provided here are most times starting points for your testing so take the suggested wicks and buy the wick below and above that size as much as two sizes up and two below just in case and test test test. Major tip and this feels like common sense but trust me it took a while for me to figure out. Measure your wax to a T! If you’re pouring 8 Oz jars figure out where in the jar you want the wax to stop and weigh how much wax will give you that perfect amount of pour keeping in mind that you have to factor in the FO in that calculation. I use water in my jars so I know how much wax will fill each of my jars each time so my leftover is virtually nonexistent and I can guarantee the fragrance load that’s going into my candles Finally please please please let the candles cure! This was the hardest for me because the suspense killed me and I didn’t want to have to wait so long only to end up with bad candles and start the process all over. Sometimes you can get away with a candle curing after only 4 days but this will not always be the case and the smell will be 100% stronger (also you might want to consider letting someone else test your candle throw with you if you’ve been pouring a lot because you will become nose blind especially if your sense of smell isn’t your strong point) after that 2 week cure time trust me! If you love candle making you’ll grow to accept the process. Labor of love.


Having a really hard time wicking to this wax. I think there is a great cold throw but, even after two weeks of curing, I'm not getting a good hot throw. Tried HTP and LX to now avail. Help!

CandleScience Reply

Hi! A member of our team will be reaching out shortly!


I had high hopes for this wax, but after experimenting with it using different wicks, I still don't have a HT. I added my FO at 185, stirred for 2 minutes, poured at 160, and then cured for 3 days. I do have a decent CT, but no HT whatsoever. I'm going to try again and let this batch cure longer and see if that helps.


❤️ IG6006

I love 6006. Candles burn a longtime and has a good HT & CT. I can smell my candles when I open the door.


Proper wick testing is paramount! There are many reviews claiming no HT but these are all because of temperatures or wicking. With proper testing and effort, 6006 is a great parasoy wax for any candle maker.



I've tried and tried but this wax does not work as advertised. I've tried many methods of heating, adding FO between 8 and 9%. I've done the pour hot, pour cooler. I've done heating the glasses ... and so on. The CT is ok to nice. The HT isn't coming through. I've tried CD, ECO, HTP, and Premier wicks. I've done the recommended cure time of 3 days and longer (2 weeks) and Nothing. This is beyond disappointing and Frankly a waste of 100+ dollars because of the astronomical shipping. This is unfortunate. Maybe people are right about this batch was being bad.

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us so we can help!


Okay, so I usually use C-3 for my candles, however, I decided to try this out, because I truly appreciate Candle Science’s speedy shipping, but they don’t carry the C-3, unfortunately. I read just about all of the reviews, and I have to admit, I was a bit nervous to try this wax, especially for candles I’m selling to people. I decided to test 8 different candles, to see what I was dealing with. I only use CD wicks, and for my size containers, I stick with the CD 8 or CD10. I decided to try both wicks with this wax, in a variety of containers, including tins, glass jars, and Amber glass jars. I have yet to burn them, so I will come back when I test the hot throw. Cold throw is good.

I used two methods...the first method, I heated the wax to 195 degrees, and immediately poured in my fragrance oil (9%) and I always stir for two minutes. I always set a timer to get that gentle two minute stir. I had read in the reviews, that people suggested to work with this wax quickly, and to not allow the temp to decrease any, before adding FO, or pouring. So, that’s what I did. Normally, I let my wax cool a bit, to at least, 175 before adding FO, but I added it immediately this time, and poured right after my two minute stirring. I also used my heat gun to warm the jars, which I have never done with my candles before. But, again, I was going by the reviews I had read.

The second batch, I did it my way. Heated to 195, added FO at 175, and poured immediately after. However, there was a huge difference with the temp difference. This wax was already cloudy at 175, and I’ve never had that happen to me before. By the time my two minute stirring was up, I looked unusual to me, as I’ve never had any wax turn out like that before. Especially with 175 degrees! I could see that happening at 140 or less, but not 175! So, I poured it into my jars that were NOT heated.

A few hours later, I went back to check in both batches, and I do love the creamy white, shiny color of the wax. All of my tins (first batch and second batch) were very smooth at the top, and no sink holes. Amber jars, were smooth and no sink holes. However, BOTH Batches with the glass jars had A HUGE HOLE in the middle! The hole was probably the size of a penny. So, I didn’t see any difference in results, if the jars were warmed or not. And besides, the cloudiness, I didn’t see much of a difference in the sinking either, because they both sunk. I used my heat gun on both, and it took two rounds of the heat gun, to even out the tops. So, so far, I don’t think I’d want to continue using this wax, because having to use a heat gun on every candle (TWICE) is too high maintenance and time consuming.

Now, I’m just waiting on the hot throw. Like I said, cold throw is pretty good. I will test these candles these next couple weeks, but I will have to go back to my C3, as I can make a candle with that, and ship that baby out the next day, knowing confidently, the hot throw is phenomenal!


I’ve had great results with 6006 using CD wicks but I keep hearing about HTP wicks working the best. I don’t think CS should recommend ECO wicks for this wax especially when there are better options. I really wish CS wouldn’t have discontinued selling HTP wicks because I love CS and they really have the quickest shipping for me. Trying to find HTP wicks that can get to me within a few days is very challenging :(.

Great burn......A little confused

The burn with this wax is amazing. It has a long lasting burn. However, the scent throw is minimal and not sure which wick to use. Wooden wicks, I think, are too powerful for this wax. Suggestions, please?

6006 Works Great, With Proper Wicking

I'm baffled at the past reviews regarding no HT. Just because ECO wicks are recommended doesn't mean you have to go with that recommendation. ECO wicks are mainly for Soy Wax but since 6006 is roughly 70% more Paraffin Wax, you need to use wicks that can properly burn this highly viscous wax - I suggest testing with HTP, Zinc, or Premier wicks. I'm currently testing with HTP and the results are amazing - Good luck to everyone, remember you got this!!


I would love to try this wax. Any thoughts of selling !lb sample package.
I put 5 stars to avoid messing up your ratings.


IGI 6006 Paraffin/Soy Blend

I use IGI 6006 Paraffin/Soy Blend and it’s great for my candles.I double wick and I get a great hot and cold through. They burn really nice and my customers love them. I make 180 different candles, some are done weekly and then I have my seasonal candles that I make for my customers. I have 5 stores that I sell them from and they are wonderful. Thanks Candle Science.

Hi Fiona! We're happy to have helped troubleshoot this with you!

This is my first time using 6006 and when I blew the candle out, got an brownish wax color. I used ECO 10 for this container, which was suggested. Also, I did not get a good HT.

Excellent Wax

Been using this for a year. I found CD wicks work better for me then the site recommended Eco wicks but make sure to always WICK TEST. All the bad reviews on here sound like people aren't properly wick testing.

So I tried this wax the first time & got not HT. Chunked it up to the fragrance oil I was trying from another company. However, I tried it again with one of my normal FOs and still no HT. I only smell wax.

No hot or cold throw

Got 6006 with very high hopes but I’m disappointed and don’t know what to do. I have customers waiting on candles but don’t want to send them because there’s HT. I heated to 185F, added FO at 180F, cooled to 140F, mixed for 2 minutes straight, then poured. Nothing!

Make Your Marco
CandleScience Reply

Hi! With the IGI 6006, you will always want to add in your fragrance load at 185 degrees, stir for 2 minutes, and then cool to 170 before pouring. If you add in your fragrance oil at too low a temperature, you risk losing some of your hot throw!

Is this wax natural/vegan?

I like this wax I’ve been using it for a little bit but I’m looking for Natural Products! Also wondering if Fragrance oils are Natural at all

I purchased IGI 6006 last week and made my candles. I allowed them to sit before selling to my customers, well there was no HT. I have never rec. a batch that had no HT and this was shocking. So a slap of wax wasted and my customers are mad because they did not get their candles.

Pretty disappointed in this wax. I’ve tried the traditional method of heating to 180, adding FO and stirring for 2 minutes, then pouring around 140. Cold throw is so-so. Hot throw is pretty poor. I’ve also tried the Alex method and gotten similar results . I’ve attempted with multiple wicks ( CD 14 and CD 20), scent types ( all from Candle Science), and ratios of FO to wax ( everything from 8%-15%).
Zero luck and SO frustrated

HT issues

I've been reading the other comments and I agree I'm not having the HT as I expected. I mix at 185 temp but nothing. Is there something that I should change? Also the wick that is recommended is not the best. It burns black and it mushrooms. Help!

I am having the hardest time with achieving a HT. I recently switched from your 464 soy wax to this in order to hopefully fix my HT problem, but still I have no HT whatsoever. I’ve tried researching ways to fix this issue on my own and I am completely lost! I bought 40lbs of the IGI 6006 wax and I do not want to waste any more of it. I use your FO as well as FO from Wooden Wick Co and I use the wooden wicks made for ParaSoy also from Wooden Wick Co, so I know the quality of the products I am buying is not the issue. Can someone please help me with this?

Best Wax!!!! Perfect Blending of Soy & Paraffin

I have been using this wax for three years and never had an issue with HT or CT. IGI 6006 wax is among the most consistent on the market. It is consistent from supplier to supplier. I have also received several boxes of IGI 6006 in the past few months and experienced no issue with HT or CT. Test your thermometers regularly and if they require batteries, change those every few weeks. A thermometer that isn't functioning properly may yield inaccurate temperature.

I melt my wax to 220, let it cool to around then add my FO and candle dye at 180-190 (depends on my FO and dye count) & pour between 170-160. I wont give out my exact temperatures that I mix my FO and dye at, but 185 should be a good starting point. As you get more comfortable with pouring you'll figure out which temperature works best for your candles.

Seldom do I use a fragrance load above 8.5%. The HT on this wax is so good you do not need to over burden the wax with FO. I use dye in many of my candles and I do not exceed more than 5 drops per lb of wax. I saw no color difference between 5 drops and 9-10 drops of liquid candle dye. I use a variety of wicks: CD6, CD8, ECO6, ECO8, LX14, LX16, LX18, and HTP 104. It took me almost three years of testing to determine the best wick for the greatest HT. I wanted a slow, even burn and high intensity fragrance and that takes time. When I first started pouring I used CD6, triple wicked in glass tumblers (all from CS) at 6% fragrance load and 3-4 drops of liquid candle dye. This is just a starting off point and I perfected my candles over time.

I use 8%-10% FO depending on what the FO is. The only problem I have noticed is soot, but if I trim my wicks properly no soot but im tryin to figure out if my customers trim their wicks properly, I use ECO 8 and ECO 10 wicks. My customers love the scents

Decent cold throw, No hot throw

The candle smells fine when not lit but I don't get any scent when it is burning. I tried two different wicks (htp 83 and 73) in a 2 3/4" diameter jar. The 73 is too small...the 83 burned great but no hot throw with either. Heated the wax to 185/190, add 8% fragrance at 180, and poured at 170.

i love candle science i never had any problems with any items. i give four stars just because when i got my delivery "which fast shipping by the way," only problem i had was that my wax was almost completely melted and i had to hurry to put it in the freezer just to save what could be saved. over all i always buy this product and its worked wonders for me...... i think better packaging for wax should be looked up on.....

CandleScience Reply

Hi! We understand your concern about wax being left outside in the warmer months. The good news is, even if the wax has melted from being outside, this will not affect the quality or burn of your finished candles. Wax is meant to be melted, and can even remelted several times without sacrificing the integrity or performance of the wax.

I love this blend! It's easy to work with and the fragrance oils attach to the wax really well and makes the candle smell so good. I have had nothing but great compliments of how the candle smells.

Hi, Can I use this blend for my pillar Candles??

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Great question! The 6006 is an excellent container wax but it can be a bit too soft for pillars and may not release well from molds. For pillars, a harder wax like the IGI 4625 would be a better option.

New candle maker, perfect wax! Not loving the recommended ECO wick.

I am so impressed with the hot and cold throw of this wax. My customers love how strong the fragrances are, even when they haven’t been lit. You will get sink holes if you’re jar is tall enough, but it’s so glossy and smooth once you melt the tops down or pour over with extra wax. My ONLY complaint is the eco wicks that are recommended with this wax are so sooty! I followed size recommendations from Candle Science, and use about 1.3 oz/lb. FO in my candles. I don’t know how to problem solve the soot of these wicks, PLEASE HELP!

Caitlin McGuire


I use 6006 and it works best for me. I love the hot and cold throw and the burn is clean down the jar. I do get sick holes in my gIass containers but it's an easy fix. I tested EVERY single wick and what I found is that LX wicks works the best and those aren't the ones recommended. Hardly any soot especially if you trim between burns. I burn them all day in my store so I blow them out after 3 hours, trim and re-light. My jars are 3.58 inches wide and I double wick with LX14. I would rather use LX12 but Candlescience only has LX12 in the 3in length and I need 6in. I could get the LX 12's 6in from another supplier but I love the way Candlescience packages their wicks so I'll manage (PLEASE offer the LX12 in 6in length Candlescience)

Great wax

I love this wax so much! I am a new candle maker and am just now getting into the swing of things with my business. This wax has not let me down. I highly recommend!


Making candles

I’m making 8oz mason jar candles. I started using 464 soy wax but didn’t like the hot an cold throw.. I wanna switch to this brand of wax using fragrance an dye chip... will this be best for me? And what size wicks should I use...



Great, easy to work with wax. Two things, though:
1. you will always get sinkholes no matter your pouring temp, but this is easily fixed by just going back later and pouring extra wax in
2. this wax does give of a bit more smoke than soy.
Easy to use and awesome!! Gives off scent really nicely!! I use 6% fragrance load and its perfect!



Are eco wick good to burn in the IGI 6006 WAX?

Benjamin P.
CandleScience Reply

Hi! Yes, we typically find the ECO wicks to work the best with the IGI 6006 wax. Be sure to check out our wick guide for help getting started! https://www.candlescience.com/learning/wick-guide.

Too Soft

The batch I received is far too soft for wax cubes. Candle Science has a YouTube video using 6006 to make wax melts & also states that you can use it this way in their answers to people asking about it. The only way I have found this to work is if you store them in the freezer. The hot throw is fantastic but I can't use the wax in this way. I have even tried mixing 25% 6006 with 75% Soy & it is still too soft. Much better hot throw than soy alone though so I'm still experimenting. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


This wax works well in the small straight sided jars with small wood wicks. It also works well in the tumbler jars with large wood wicks. I had someminor frosting because I was using a heat gun to warm the jars. It holds great scent for cold and hot throw as well as using dye chips.

Candle Lust


I don't believe the batches in this type of wax are consistent. I have ordered this wax three times now and the third time I have ordered it it's much harder then the previous. I have done everything the same and I am not getting any hot throw from my candles. I do love this wax though! I just don't know what happened to this last batch?


LX Wicks for IGI6006 Wax

I have been using LX wicks for this wax for over 3 years now. It's always down well for me. It's not a perfect system, but not a ton of soot and no mushrooming, if trimmed between burns. Worked much better for me than CD or HTP wicks. If you are having issues wicking this wax, give LX a try.

Candle Lover


Why do you recommend eco series over other for 6006? I currently have a 3 inch jar that you recommend an eco 8 for iv tried and eco 10 that doesnt reach full melt pool with in 4 hours but the flame seems huge. I'm not sure where to go at this point help please. I love 6006 the hot / cold throw is amazing but wicking it seems very challenging


Never dissapointed!

Everything about the company is amazing. I am a new candle maker so I had many trials and error but I have found this wax works beautifully. Its grabs onto the fragrance and color great.


Great wax

Super happy with this wax. Didn't have any issues at all!


Great wax

We use this wax and it does a great job making beautiful candles. We gwt no sinkholes or any other problems when pouring. I use a sink wick 44 36 18z and they work beautifully

Joshua cornett

Fantastic wax

I’m not sure what problems all of the other reviewers are having with “sink holes”. Of course it took plenty of trial and error but once we found the perfect wick for this wax and our container, we have had nothing but growing success month over month. The formula has not changed whatsoever since we switched our brand to this wax. A lot of factors go into perfecting a beautiful candle with excellent hot throw. Best tip I could give if you’re having problems but dead set on this wax is to keep experimenting and researching until you find a formula that works for your products. My only major problem has been dirt or some other material in random parts of the block but over all, I give it 5 stars.

Let’s Stay Home Candle Co.

Which Wick

I normally use soy but am thinning about switching to this blend, so what wick would be best in an 8 ounce Mason jar with this blend wax?


Formula changed?

Hello was there a Chang to the 6006 it doesn't seem as soft as it used to and it has a hard top layer, the wax seems to be harder than previous batch?? Was paraffin % increased??

CandleScience Reply

Hi! The formula for the IGI 6006 has not been changed by the manufacturer. However, it is common to see some consistency differences from batch to batch. The performance of the wax will be the same despite any consistency changes noted.


The wax is easy to work with. You will have sinkholes but these are easily fixed. My issue is wicking. CS recommends an ECO 8 for two of the containers I am using (8 oz tin and 12 oz status jar). I understand the need for wicking up and down depending on scent and scent percentage but we're talking an ECO14+ or CD 18+ in order to achieve a full melt pool with the 6006 I've purchased over the past few months. I'm not sure what has changed but people that do this for a living have assured me that 6006 has not required wicks of this size in the past. CS really needs to do some testing on recent 6006 batches.



What temperature should this wax be heated to?


I am new with the candle making. Is this good for Containers, jars, tins, pillars and votive or I have to buy a different set of wax.
And what are the best wicks as well


Decent container wax

The IGI 6006 parasoy wax is a pretty decent container wax for many applications. One concern with this wax is that, regardless of pour temp (I've tested anywhere from 140-190) there are some serious sinkholes going on with every candle. My only other concern is that there was a considerable amount of foreign substances on the outside of both slabs I ordered, as well as obvious signs that it had been scraped against pavement (scrapes and holes in the bag were a dead giveaway). Regardless, IGI 6006 is a decent wax and is easy to work with. Cheers!

Glass City Candle Company

Does this wax frost like soy?

CandleScience Reply

This wax does not typically frost as the paraffin wax component helps stabilize the wax vs. a straight soy wax which is more prone to the frosting.

I am happy with the wax and have purchased many times. However, the last delivery had multiple spots of something black all over the back of the slab that I had to scrape off before using.


Great wax

I was using 464 and I was new to candle making. I love that 464 is natural, but 6006 is AMAZING! I go through so many 10lb slabs lol. I love the finish it gives, minus the sink holes but that's an easy fix. Everyone who purchase my candles love the scents and how strong they are! I use wooden wicks and it gives it that even more great apark.


Well worth buying!

This wax is easily sliceable! It's glossy when the candles are settled. I enjoy how easy and fun this wax is to work with. I shopped around before deciding that this is the best priced wax that also has excellent quality.

Making melts

I get a great hot and cold throw from this wax. As I read other reviews I see people have issues with crumbling. This was or my order of it is so soft I can't put it in clam shells. I have to pour them in silicone molds which is cuter anyway. It sets like chapstick for me. Super soft.



What wick will you recommend for 8oz tins with this wax?

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Typically, we'd recommend starting with an ECO 8 wick for testing. Depending on your recipe though, a burn test may show that wicking up or down a size might work as well. We always recommend testing but an ECO 8 would be a great starting point!

I love this wax & I’d love to switch from 464 but I am having the hardest time wicking 3” straight sided tumbler jars. I tried the recommended ECO 8, I tried CD 18, CD 22, HTP 105. & nothing works. I can’t get a full melt pool with any of these. Other than the wicking issue the wax is pretty amazing! I love most that it doesn’t have that petroleum jelly look.

Blind Ambition evolved


I recently tried a coconut wax because I wanted something natural with no paraffin. I must tell you that the scent throw of 6006 is definitely superior and I will not be switching. I LOVE this wax.


Love this wax

This is my favorite go to wax and my customers love it. I use them for my wax melts and have a great CT & HT. I heat the wax until 180-185, add my FO and when the temp gets to around 170 i pour. If it's a little lower thats fine. I've used it in the 3" 8 oz tumblers and using the ECO wick got horrible soot. Used the HTP104 and it was great a little tunneling. I'm going to try HTP105. I'll also be purchasing the 4oz mason jar. Starting with a CD wick.



What do you label this on your candle jars as being that it isn’t all soy?

Hi! It would be your personal preference but we often see soy and paraffin blend candles being labeled as "soy blend" or "para-soy". I hope this helps but we're always happy to troubleshoot further at support@candlescience.com!

I love this wax but was unhappy with the Eco and CD wicks. There was a tremendous amount of mushrooming and sooting with both. I decided to try HTP 83 wicks in my 16 oz, about 3 inch mason jars and I am so glad I did, the issue has been RESOLVED. I have found my wax and wick----HOORAY!!!!

Hi! We'd typically recommend an ECO 2 wick for the 4oz tin and an ECO 4 for the 6oz tin, the ECO 8 will likely burn too hot for either container. You could also use this wax for melts and tarts. We're always happy to help troubleshoot at support@candlescience.com!


After test burning the CD wicks with this wax, I find the Eco 8 wicks work best, better HT, etc., I just have to keep them trimmed. Eco 8 is what Candlescience suggests for this wax. Thanks Candlescience!


Finally I have a hot throw

After two years of trying to use 100% soy wax, all different kinds, and never achieving a good hot throw, I decided to try this wax and I finally have a hot throw, I'll be using this exclusively now. I am using Eco wicks right now but they burn a little too hot with tall dancing flame and soot, I'll be trying CD next.


Great wax but...

I recently switched to this wax and absolutely love how easy it is to work with. Excellent cold and hot throw. I did have some issues with my order however, it’s mostly the carriers fault and not Candle Science. The wax is great and I do really like it but... I can’t sell the products I’m making with it. There’s little particles and debri inside the wax that you just can’t pick out. I highly recommend and hope Candle Science can select better shipping boxes for a 60 pound box of wax. My box arrived basically torn apart and the bag was also torn to shreds. I will continue to use this wax to test with, but that’s about it.


Absolutely love this wax

I have been using this wax for a couple years now and it is great. I have multiple videos on my youtube channel talking about it and showing how to use it. www.youtube.com/c/standleyhandcrafted

This is the wax I suggest to all beginners because it is so forgiving unlike soy. You are almost guaranteed a nice strong smelling candle from the first batch.
Heat to 180, add fragrance oils anywhere from 175-160, stir and pour and you're good.

You will get sinkholes with this wax almost every time and no matter how cool you pour. You will want to buy a heat gun to fix them. Not a huge deal but you need to be aware of them. The amount of paraffin in this wax causes shrinking as it cools so you will see larger sinkholes the hotter you pour.

Still a great wax though and I highly recommend.

Way Better Than 464

I just switched to this from 464, and while I felt kind of bad using some paraffin, it's worth the guilt. This wax really delivers.


Wax performance

Not good


Owner @ Cheers a candle company

Just switched from 464 to this, and absolutely love it! Beautiful smooth pour, great cold/hot throw, and decreased my overall production time by half! 1 oz to 1 lb is PLENTY! 🤩


In love!

I am testing this out in order to move over from IGI 4630... and I am already in love! The cold throw is absolutely amazing, much better than 4630, and the hot throw is the same, if not better. I am using about 1 oz scent / lb of wax and this seems to be plenty! It carries the dye just a beautifully as paraffin, but appears to be shrinking a tad more once cooled. Plus, this wax is slightly cheaper! I will definitely be switching all my candles over to this wax!


Love <3

Love this wax, its awesome! perfect in capturing scents. Fast shipping


I love this wax and the cold and hot throw are awesome. Thanks for the fast shipping!!!


Love this wax

This wax is so easy to use. Heat to 185° add fragrance oil and pour at 170°. Heat jars to 170° but not necessary for tins. Return to cooling oven after pouring to slow down the cooling process. This eliminates sink holes. I prefer the CD wicks for a smaller, more controlled flame but the echos are ok. I would love to give this wax 5 stars but there is a problem with smoke and sooting which might could be corrected if they increased the soy content. By the way really expensive candles from big companies have this same problem

Beautiful wax - Difficult to wick

After pouring this wax a few months ago, I was very happy with the appearance and single pour qualities of this wax. If I use a heat gun and warm my glass container and pour at 170 degrees F, I get a perfect pour every single time. Fantastic cold throw! I was ready to fall in love with this wax, but then, I lit the wicks... I started with ECO wicks, and got a great hot throw - but also a ridiculous amount of sooting even after testing many wick sizes. I moved to CD wicks from a different supplier, and the same problem. I tried cotton wicks, paper core wicks, zinc core wicks etc. Now I have sample packs of every wick ever made and none of them work. Either the burn pool stays around 2 inches instead of going to the 3 inch diameter of my container, OR, they soot after an hour of being lit. My tests have all been with 10% f.o., and I am now debating whether to spend yet more money on fragrance oil and try a lower fragrance load, or just break up with this wax entirely.

I would like to start off by saying I received my order VERYYYYY fast, it was expected to be delivered on the 8th of this month and came in today. I was so excited about my purchase that i made my candles tonight and let me just say i can already tell the candles are going to be just what I've been wanting. The cold throw is very loud so i hope and pray the hot throw is just as powerful. I've heard awesome things about the parasoy wax and i am sooooooooo excited about it. Thank you candlescience, i look forward to ordering here again very soon!

Love working with this wax. Originally got it to use for clamshells, as the instructional video uses this wax. However, it crumbles when I pop it out of the clamshell. I tried mixing it half and half with IGI 4625 and that worked great for the clamshells and tarts; no crumbling. I like it for container candles. I've used it in tins and jam jars. I like the cold and hot throw as well. It is very easy to work with for small batches.I give it 5 stars as a container candle wax, but only 3 stars as a tart & clamshell wax; thus the 4 star rating.


Owner of Nancy's Soy Candle Creations

I love this wax for candles and tealight, but it is to soft for clamshell melts....


just okay

I like the wax overall but have two main complaints.

1) Been inconsistent over the past year with some lots having issues. Not as bad as straight has had, but still some issues.

2) Wicking/Soot. Various wicks work okay with this wax, but none of them work great. sooting becomes an issue with this wax as well (similar to parrafin).
You have to keep wick trimmed at all times or it soots. Problem is, customers dont do that. At least with some other wax blends, you can get more self
trimming or a nice curl that will keep the flame consistent with little or no soot. Not with this wax. If customer doesn't trim (even if the wick is small
enough it doesn't look like it needs trimmed) it soots like a chimney after relighting.

All in all, its not bad and I still use it it in a lot of candles but they are kinda high maintenance.

@Stanley - what wicks do you find seem to do the best for you and if you dont mind me asking, what FO % do you typically use? Also, how long do you find they need to cure for both testing and selling?



I absolutely love this wax, easy to use, great hot throw

I have been using this wax for a year now and I will never switch. I started with 464 and had the same issues that everyone does, weak hot throw.
I was able to get a nice hot throw eventually from 464 but after lot's of testing and work. 6006 gets a better hot throw with little to no work.
Easy to work with, I scoop it out with an ice cream scoop. Easy to add FO, easy to pour and sinkholes are easily fixed with a heat gun.

I have a video that shows the best way to use this wax if people are interested.

Not the Best

I was less than impressed with this wax. It tunnelled every time I used it. The surface was always bumpy. Just not happy with this product. The color retention was nice, but that's it. Will not buy again.


issues lately

Been having issues lately. My 6006 has a strange wavy bumpy top that is slightly discolored. Its subtle, but its there. And I am having to wick up 2 sizes on average. And sometimes that doesn't even work and I have to abandon ship. Not sure whats going on. Anyone else having issues?
Lots I have open and are acting this way so far are Lot #T1700447 and Lot #T1603781


a few tips for IGI 6006

After reading the previous reviews for this wax I thought I'd add a few tips that will help you to make perfect candles:

1.) heat 6006 to 185-190 (no hotter than this!) I consistently pull my melting pot from my water bath at 185 to prevent the wax from being too hot and "killing" my fragrance oil.

2.) QUICKLY add your fragrance oil and stir; remember, when you add your fragrance oil it will drop the temp of your wax VERY QUICKLY! You can pop the melting pot back into your water bath while stirring to keep the temp above 170. You'll want to get about a minute of stirring in to disperse your FO.

3.) Eco wicks are not meant for soy blend candles--you'll want to use something else. I use CD 14 in the brown tumblers from CS and CD 10 in the 8 oz tins.

I hope this helps!


This is Fabulous!

I am very new to candle making, in fact I have been doing this for 1 month. So I have experimented with a few different waxes, I like soy. So after reading the reviews on this site I decided it was time to try this one. IT IS FABULOUS! The paraffin causes the wax to solidify quickly so you have to be ready to add the fragrance almost immediately as stated by another reviewer. But it is worth the time and effort you put in this wax! The finish is smooth and beautiful to look at . The cold and hot throw are both fantastic ! I use the recommended wicks for the jars I bought and everything was right on target.


my favorite wax

I absolutely love this wax as it never gives me ANY problems! I heat to 185 and pour at 170. You have to be ready to add your fragrance oil right when you take if off the heat source as the temperature of the wax drops quickly to 170. Great hot and cold throw with this wax with high quality FO.


Hot throw

Can any one please tell me how to get a good hot throw with this wax. Like what temp to heat wax and what temp to add fragrance . Please help


Good results

I tested this wax in 2 oz, 4 oz, and 8 oz tins using various sizes of the LX (14, 16, 20) wicks I had on hand and the results made me happy and confidence to go forth with adding fragrance. The wax was smooth and creamy looking once it cooled in the tins and burning according to what my calculations say they should burn in a certain time frame. This wax was easy to work with, just cut and weigh and also worked well with clamshell containers. I think I found my go to wax!! I only gave this wax a four star rating because I'm going to test with frangeance, and will update my ratings depending on further testing.


Beautiful wax!

I started with 464 and switched because I was struggling to get a decent scent throw and didn't like the look of my candles after they had been lit and dried - crater like and not smooth. I started using the 6006 wax and I'm so glad I did. This wax creates a beautiful smooth and creamy candle. I mix in a small amount of 464 wax to increase the soy percentage in this wax. I use no additives or dyes. A couple of times I lit the candles just 2 days after making because I wanted to test the wick and was surprised to find that I had some hot throw with very little cure time. Obviously letting them cure a couple of weeks is ideal, but I'm pleased with the initial results. I heat to 185-190, add 9% FO, stir for 90 seconds and pour into a jar with a 3-inch diameter. I have found the CD wicks work the best with this wax. I also always used to get wet spots (even with this wax) but I started pre-heating my jars at 170 in the oven for 8-10 minutes before I pour and no more wet spots. After my candles set for 3-4 hours, I move them to a closet to keep them away from drafts. Hope this helps!

To Soft for Clamshells

I used the IGI 6006 for clamshells, I was not happy with this wax for them....The clamshells was very soft and the throw was not as good I expected. I do use this wax for my candles and am very happy. I contacted Candlescience and they recommended IGI 4794. I haven't tried the IGI 4794 yet, but I will be trying it very soon. Hope it is better.


Very satisfied, now that I have the right wick

I love this wax. It is very easy to cut and weigh. It has an amazing scent throw and dyes very well. I was new to candlemaking, but this wax made me look like I had been doing it for years. Only takes one pour to turn out perfect. Sometimes there is a hole on the top, like if I pour too fast. I got a $30 heat gun and can fix the hole in seconds. Like other reviewers, I also had issues finding the right wick. I started with the wick recommended by CS but found the flame was too big - melted the wax too fast and not evenly across the top. Also it smoked and left a lot of unattractive soot on the jar. When I read up a little more about wicks, I discovered that these issues are not uncommon with ECO wicks. I tested several size and brand wicks and now use (2) Eco 4 wicks in a jar with about 3" diameter. This solved all my issues with the way it burns, except that it still burns down faster than what I want. I'm going to test mixtures of IGI6006 with GB464 to see if I can get the same quality candle but lasting a little longer. I hope I can accomplish this without the headache of having to test wicks again. But honestly, I'm not in a hurry to change up the mixture. The candles are beautiful as is and I get 5 star ratings on all of my reviews. Customers love the scent throws with this wax.


Wick Guide

Lots of great reviews about this wax but having a very difficult time sizing the wick. Tried them all - eco, htp, lx, csn, etc. I'm using 9% FO + 3.25" jar.
My biggest concern is that the flame burns too high and produces a lot of black smoke or soot. Any suggestions are much appreciated.


Good wax.. wicks not so much

I like the wax a lot. Good scent throw as and pretty easy to use. Its only wax i use currently.
With that being said, I found the wick recommendations by CS pretty for off for me. the size was wrong on multiple jars. Also, the wick type I am simply just not a fan of.
Eco work best with all soy wax, not a blend of only 30% soy. Eco is commonly referred to as wild wicks because their flames are pretty wild and tall frequently. And I see this completely true. Yes, I can use a smaller wick but then I do not get a good melt pool. With all that being said, the WORST problem I had with Eco wicks and this wax is the discoloration. Anyone else have this issue? The burning of Eco wicks with this wax causes ugly yellowish tarnish to the top of my candles. Not noticeable on some coloros, but it is on most of them. Especially noticeable on uncolored candles.The pleasant creamy white turns a horrific gross yellowish on top. I am not sure if they just burn too hot or what, but its definitely not good. Granted, Eco wicks are not the only ones that do this for me on this wax but they are probably the worst. I find the best wicks for this wax are a couple options not even sold by CS unfortunately.

I am just shocked that ECO wicks are what CS recommends for this wax. I am guessing they just chose the best of the ones they sell since the other options they sell do not work very well either. But just think about it.... if ECO is not recommended for Parrafin, and IGI6006 is mostly parrafin.... why would anyone expect these wicks to work well with this wax? Just my opinion. But I did LOTS and LOTS of testing and had SO many wicking issues with this wax but can tell you the Eco was among the worst.

Great wax, but would be really nice if there was a great wick specifically designed for it. I realize with a blended wax like this, that can be difficult but its, afterall, my only real knock on this wax.


happy now

I tried again. This time i heated the wax to 190, took it off the burner, added the color chip stirred til melted added the fragrance at 185 and poured at 165. Used tin container.... no holes perfect. also tried it in the 12 oz cube jar and perfect no holes and has a beautiful glossy finish.


great wax for candle tins

I have made several batches of 8 oz candle tins and actually just did an all day test burn on one; the IGI 6006 with an Eco 2 wick burns the wax evenly without any tunneling AND burns all the way to the bottom of the tin. I read the reviews from other CandleScience customers regarding scent favorites and how much scent to use per pound so that I don't have to figure it out and waste time and money. IGI 6006 is a fantastic wax--melts quickly and you can pour quickly after adding fragrance oil.


I am using IGI 6006, but having a real hard time finding a wick that works. I was using the ECO 2 wick and believe it was to small for the Mason 8 oz jars. I am trying the ECO 4 wick I am getting so much black soot. I am also having trouble with holes around my wick. Got mixed feeling with this wax. Just don't know where to go with this. I was using the 464, there was to much frosting. Anyone have any ideas what to do?



I used this wax after watching the video on candle science web site. I used the 21 oz status jar with eco #8 wick 6 inches. Heated the wax to 185 degrees. Added the color wax chip after taking off the burner and Stirred until the color chip was melted and then added 1 2/3 ounces of lavender chamomile fragrance. Then i poured at 167 degrees. Finished candles all three had a hole next the wick.



I'm pretty new to candle making and started with the soy 464 blend. The wax poured beautifully for me and had an awesome cold throw but no hot throw whatsoever. I decided to switch to the para/soy blend because of the reviews. I'm highly disappointed with the holes and frosting I get on EVERY candle. I've tried varying my pouring temp and even heating my glasses. No luck. I use a heat gun to get rid of my holes and can cover some of the frosting with labels. I do have to say that I am soooooooooo very happy with the cold and hot throw I'm getting from this wax though! My house smells glorious!!


Holes by the wick

I'm new with candle making. I've played with the soy and switched to this one. I'm happy with it so far but I'm having trouble with holes by the wick once it dries. What am I doing wrong? Also mixing 1oz per pound of wax and the scent is strong once I add it but once it dries it's not very strong.



Tunneling is not caused by the wax, but by the size of the wick. If you get tunneling, step up to a larger wick. Soot can be created by letting the wick get to long while burning. Keep wick trimmed. If you keep getting tunneling keep going a step bigger. I only use ECO wicks.....


No Scent Throw

I switched to this wax from 464 because I believed all the reviews saying it had an awesome hot and cold throw and needed less fragrance than soy.

I HATE this wax. I've wasted so much money on it. I've used 1.5oz/lb of wax with Sweet Pea and Caribbean Teakwood fragrance and I get a miserable hot throw and not a great cold throw. Grapefruit and Mangosteen I used 1oz/lb of fragrance and I have a great cold throw but no hot throw. I've got Huckleberry fragrance (from a different supplier) going right now at 2oz/lb (the highest I'm willing to go, slightly higher than recommended) and I can't smell it AT ALL hot or cold. Smells amazing out of the bottle and while mixing so I don't believe it's the fragrance.

I will be going back to 464.



I needed to make a quick decision on a wax because the straight soy that I used turned out awful. Just by reading the reviews on this wax I took a chance and ordered. The Best Decision ever!!! It's like night and day. No frosting, no starring, no cracking, awesome scent throw hot and cold. I'm Hooked!!

NIkki Leonard

I am so glad I switched over!

When I started candle making a few months back I used 100% soy. The soy is hard to get perfect and the hot scent throw is not strong. I switched over to this wax, and I am so happy I did. I made over 30 candles without a hitch. They all came out perfect. I save money on dye and fragrance oil since I use less per pound compared to soy. The hot throw is wonderful. This is my permanent wax!



My wife and i created a side candle business and were using GB 444 and did not go well once we used this all of our problems went away. Only one thing is i wish military got a discount from the site.


So far so...

GOOD! I have had a great time using this wax, so far. I'm a newbie at candle-making, and this wax makes it easy. I used the 'White Tea and Berry' fragrance at 1.5 oz/ 1 lb. and the cold throw isn't as strong as I was expecting to be, so I REALLY hope the hot throw is stronger. It smelled nice when I mixed it with the wax, and if it smells anything like it did then while its lit then I'll be alright.

Great product!!

Ashley Punausuia

Great for beginners

I'm very happy with my purchase of this wax. I was working with GB 464 and was having both frosting and sinkhole issues as well as hot throw, the wax was just too inconsistent for me as a casual candle maker. I purchased this wax and had some great first pours! I had sink hole issues around the wick but I found that could be reduced by pouring around 160 (that and a heat gun!). I have run into one issue however, which is tunneling. I made candles in Ball jelly jars with a diameter of about 2.3". I used the ECO 2 wick as suggested but my burn pool isn't wide enough. Perhaps maybe ill move up to the ECO 8? if anyone has wick suggestions please let me know! other than that both the cold and hot throw are way more prevalent than I experienced with the 464!


two thumbs up!

Loving this wax blend. Pour at 180. Sometimes has wet spots, sometimes top isnt smooth, even though I preheat my glass, but overall great wax! Beautiful texture, no frosting, generally good cold throw at 8-10%, great hot throws. Burns rather quick (no more than 30hrs on a 9oz) , sooting with LX 24 wick (gotta cut them real short). My glass size is 3.25 inches... HTP 104 too small. Trying Eco wicks based on CS recommendation, will update.


Love, Love, Love this Wax

I forgot to mention that I preheat my jars for just a few minutes before pouring the wax. :)


Love, Love, Love this Wax

I am fairly new at candle making and after watching the video on how to make soy candles, I bought some of the GW 464 that was in the video. I've gone through a case of it, and was having such a hard time with frosting, wet spots, rough tops, and sinkholes that I almost gave up,but after reading reviews on the different waxes decided to try the IGI 6006 blend. I'm SO glad I did! I have virtually eliminated all frost, and wet spots. This is how I've done it: I add 1 TBS Coconut cooking oil to the melted wax @185°, Pour the wax between 165° and 170°, after they have set up enough to move, I put them in an ice chest that I've preheated with a heat gun, to make sure they don't cool too quickly. I leave them overnight and the next morning I had no frosting, sinkholes or wet spots. They are a beautiful, creamy texture. with perfect tops. I've done 14 of them this way and so far, so good.
I will never go back to straight soy again.
Hope this helps someone else who frustrated and getting disenchanted.


great for first timers!

I'm new to candle making and this is the only wax I've used so far. I wanted to use Soy but from the reviews I've read it can be hard to get just right. So I tried this one and its so smooth. I do occasionally get wet spots but they're always small enough to cover with my label. I haven't had very good hot throws so far but I'm still experimenting with my FO amounts so that could be why. Cold throw is almost always amazing though! I used an Eco 2 wick in a 2.75 in jar and the melt pool just barely reaches the sides of the jar so I don't get any tunneling as long as I let it burn for at least a few hours each time. In the medium straight sided jars (which hold 5.8 oz i believe) I get around 40 hours of burn time.


Trouble wicking

So far I like this wax - has a great smooth look and nice hot throw scent. I made a large 3 in jar and used the wick recommended Eco 8 and it tunneled right down the center. I see there a few people who are also having this issue. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Eileen Rosenbaum

So far so good with this wax! I am new to candle making, so I wasn't sure what to start with. I chose GB 464 and had a really hard time with it (even after pouring at cooler and cooler temperatures, cooling it more slowing my covering my pot, pouring slower, etc). Even after all that I was still getting rough tops and almost no hot throw. I did a little more research and decided to try IGI 6006. It's so much better and I think it's easier to handle than soy. I just made a batch of Dragon's Blood candles. They are so smooth and pretty. The cold throw is amazing and it holds color beautifully. I have to wait until tomorrow to light one, so not sure how the hot throw is yet, but I have a good feeling this will be my go to wax! Definitely sticking with this one!


Love it!

I must say I started with pure soy and I just could not perfect the look of my candles no matter what I did. I started using IGI 6006 and I have the best looking candles and the hot throw is unbelievable and the cold throw is also just as great. I've had customers tell me "when I walked into my house I thought I had forgot to turn the candle off" because the cold throw is that good. And when people tell me how great their purchase was just makes me feel great!



Oh, we're using 10% FO.


Does anyone get soot when using this wax?

This wax works perfectly; however, we're still trying to experiment on the wicks. We're using a 3" container and the CS recommendation is ECO 2 - ECO 8. The ECO 2 is too small and the ECO 8 is also a bit small and produces a bit too much soot to my liking.

We also tried ALL the other brands and find that some soot (particularly LX and ECO). Anyone else experience this?

Any wick suggestions would be helpful. So far, we're liking HTP 104 (HTP 126 produces a better pool but wick flickers a bit too much and produces soot), RRD55 (good pool but a bit of flickering and mushrooming) and now trying CSN 16 (as CSN 14 is a bit too small).

Any help would be great!!!


Product review update!

I don't know why, but when I was using the wick guide, I searched for 4' or larger. I use 16oz mason jars, and the perfect wick is the Eco 2 6". This is still by far the best wax I've ever laid my little fingers on. I recommend it to anyone who's just starting out, or is a candle veteran.


Parasoy blend igi 6006

I'm loving this wax! It's so easy to separate, and what
Wax that stays on my hands can be rubbed in for baby soft hands!
I do however need to repour once because of small dips in the top.
I definitely recommend this wax for all jar candle makers.
I still can't find the perfect wick. I tried csn 14, but got a
Small amount of tunneling. I use a 16oz mason, and if
Anyone has any suggestions on wick, please email me




I live in a cold foggy forever-drizzling climate, and spent months trying to force my soy candles to look perfect despite the climate. They improved dramatically, but there were still so many aesthetic issues. I finally decided to give IGI 6006 a try, and every candle I've made since the switch is PERFECT! The wick suggested by CandleScience was likewise the exact right choice. The hot throw is wonderful, the appearance is beautiful, I am never going back to pure soy.

Ruth - St George Candle Co

Excellent Wax!

Wonderful wax; consistent, with none of the issues you get from pure soy, i.e., frosting, mottled tops, adhesion. Holds color very well with even the palest of shades and the scent throw is excellent. Very long and even burning clean candle!

Love it!


LONG Burning candles.

This wax is great. Really easy to work. Beautiful looking candles, smooth, and great color. However, made really long burning candles. More than 4 hrs burning and still no burning even. I try whisper jar with light color Eco10 & Eco12 1.5oz FO per pound.


Very good wax!

This wax has GREAT scent throw hot and cold.Takes color very well and has a very long burn time.I use an ECO-6 in a 8oz. mason with 8% f.o. load. TRY IT!
