Paraffin Pillar Wax (MP-137)
Choose a Variant

Paraffin Pillar Wax (MP-137) is a fully refined paraffin wax perfect for creating glossy pillars, votives, tarts, and wax melts with excellent scent throw. Typically reserved for major manufacturing companies as a private label wax, MP-137 is an opportunity for the handcrafted market to try a premium wax. The white wax is opaque and provides a fantastic canvas for vibrant colors. It requires no additional additives, just add fragrance and dye. 

As a bonus, MP-137 is packaged in pastille form for easy scooping and measuring - no hard slabs to break up!

Candle Maker's Notes:
Experiencing sinkholes? As is common for paraffin pillar waxes, MP-137 will require a second pour for most projects due to shrinkage as it cools.

Enjoying it so far

I’m still playing around with this wax. I had some stearic acid I had purchased in 2007 for soap making that I never used. Well I like how the stearic acid increases opacity and helps pillar candles shrink off the molds. I’m going to try making pillars without the stearic acid and use the vybar 103 at 1% for comparison. I have bulk powdered solvent dyes that I sell and I use this wax to max my own color chip concentrates as well. I need to try making wax melts

Easy to work with, great scent throw

Love this wax - so easy to scoop and pour into my melter. I use it with silicone cup molds and they pop out easily. The best scent throw even with less than 6% FO, so don't waste money adding more FO than you need. I don't use dye, the white natural color is very nice. I'm one of those "cool temp" makers and usually just take it up to the melt point, add FO, stir and pour and they come out perfect every time.

Use it as a blender

I have been using this as a blender w/ soy wax for my melts and I have been very happy. It hardened the melts nicely to get a nice snap. Getting a good HT and CT as well.

Love it!

I had to cut my previous wax, but not anymore! I love it, gives awesome HT and holds colors really well. This is by far the best pillar wax I have tried.
