Best pillar wax so far

Finally, I found the perfect pillar wax! It is opaque that the color comes out vivid. My candles are better looking with this wax as I work with layered pillar candles. Above all, easy to handle, I do not need my husband to break the wax into small pieces. Thank you Candlescience!


Great for Votives, But be Careful when its Ships.

This wax is great for votives and super easy to clean up if the wax spills over the molds. My only issue was that I lost about half a pound of wax pellets because the bag came open in transit. That is my only concern, I will continue to order this wax for my votives.

great stuff!

I love this wax, I experimented with the best way to use it for my wax melts and found best to use with ratio to my soy. With 1 to 1 ratio the molds drop right out . If I use the wax alone it is a little tight in the molds. So glad they found a way to make it into pastilles !


love it

So glad I don't have to break the wax up with a hammer any more!! I love this wax!


love it!!

I absolutely love this wax!! Firstly so easy to work with now , no longer have to break with a hammer! Melts faster and cools quicker. Beautiful creamy white opaque color too. I love it!


Love this!!!!

I am a beginner and I have a lot to learn. The only problems I had with this was my own fault.
The wax comes right out of the mold with a little pull, and is amazing looking. I am thinking of getting the 45 pound bag becouse i am burning throw the 2 smaller bags i got.


Amazing quality, amazing price

This business saved my own business for at least a couple weeks! I have owned a candle shop for a few years now and all of a sudden the only paraffin wax that I have ever used through another company went out of distribution. I searched for days, endlessly looking for something that matched its quality and properties that I could use for my uniquely layered pillar candles. Everything was at least three times the cost of what I was used to spending and was just way too opaque. I couldn't stop envisioning having to close everything down until I came across this newer wax from Candle Science.

I am SO beyond pleased with this company. The quality of this wax is amazing and the low price is just unheard of when it comes to similar products through other businesses - most are at LEAST $30 for 10 pounds. My favorite thing was that this wax came in pellets and if you are a candle maker, you know how time consuming breaking up and melting bricks can be! This saved me a lot of time.

Processing and shipping was also extremely fast! I hadn't been following tracking and was blown away when I looked outside and saw my boxes sitting on my patio much earlier than I expected. I was also super excited about the free fragrance sample. I chose "currant absinthe" and it smells absolutely incredible. Very potent and luxurious. Even my mom, who hates anything scented, loved it. I will be making my own personal candle with it so I can take full advantage.

I also wanted to mention that when the pandemic started, I had ordered five sample blocks from Candle Science because my distributor had shut down for a couple months. Those paraffin block samples were also very high quality! I would recommend this company to anyone. 12/10. I will be placing another order to get through these difficult times for my business.

Thanks so much!
