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.

Super hard to work with.
I agree with the review above when it says it feels like plastic when melted. I will never buy again. VERY POOR QUALITY

Not for Silicone Molds

This wax has not worked out for us. We use it to create female body candles, poured into silicone molds and no matter what we do the products comes out with a bumpy crater like consistency all over. We have tried pouring at 200f , 180f and 160f. We have poured into warmed molds, room temp molds and even cold molds in a desperate attempt for a smooth finish. We have cooled in enclosed settings at a slow pace as well as spread out on wire racks in hopes this helps eliminate the bumpy texture. Nothing worked. Our candles are unscented and use 2 drops of color per lb.

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.

Works as advertised

As of today I've used this was to make pillars and now votives and tarts. I've paid attention to the testing notes, pour temps and the alerts regarding shrink. Nothing about this wax is surprising or disappointing. I will definitely be buying more.

Quick and easy votives with varying hot throw

I was so excited when I made the first few batches of votives with this--- the first two scents I tried were so strong that they filled up the entire room. I made dozens of votives over the course of the next few months- all of them used LX12 and 6% FO, just like those super strong first ones.
Unfortunately, that strong aroma just didn't pan out with almost all the other fragrances I tested. I used high quality fragrances from a multitude of suppliers. Most of the votives had a very minimal throw, just barely detectable, some had absolutely zero throw. Only 2 out of about 15 different votives were strong. Pour temp, percentage - everything was done the same. I'm wondering if quality maybe varied from bag to bag, or if theres some chemistry that explains this? I dunno, but it's discouraging and definitely not a reliably strong throw.

Did not like!!!

I made waxmelts last night. I made them with another wax (Bw-921) to compare which would be better for my final product. This wax was not hard to use, but the cons I found were it leaves sinkholes and the ct was not strong which is the result of only being able to use 6% max of fo. I will allow them to sit and cure but hands down the bw921 is my favorite!!! The bw921 doesn't leave sinkholes and the ct is great even at 8%.
