Product Description

Ideal For

  • Glass Container Candles
  • Aluminum Tin Candles
  • Tea-Light Candles

Make beautiful soy candles with this all-natural wax blend! This Golden Wax 444 Soy Blend is composed of 98% soy wax with 2% natural additives to enhance the performance of the burn, color and achieve an excellent scent throw for container candles.

Mixes well with paraffin wax at any level. This blend will hold up to a 10% fragrance load and the finished candles have a smooth top with a rich, creamy, solid color. It is also a great blending wax for paraffin, beeswax or it can be used for lotions, creams, lip balms etc.

Testing proved this wax to be a single pour, but you may need to level the tops with a heat gun in your environment.

Meltpoint:  120-125°F
Primary Use:  Container candles
Packaging:  Flakes
Wick Suggestion:  Paper core, Wedo RRD, Heinz coreless
Recommended Pouring Temperature:  Cool and Slushy
Instructions for Use:  Heat wax to 180°F. Add color and scent and let wax cool until thick and slushy before pouring.

Directions:

This soy wax is 100% soy with a soy based additive, and is both natural and kosher. The soy based additive enables the soy to be poured at a hotter temperature to help reduce frosting, and also allows for a larger fragrance scent load. It also has a higher melt point to allow for better fragrance retention. You may use up to 11% scent load, and the finished candle will have a smooth creamy top with a solid color. The glass adhesion is very good, and there will be minimal wet spots visible. There may be occasions of a small breakage in the tops, but a few seconds with a heat gun will smooth out the tops. We test burned a candle with a broken top and there was no air pocket underneath that altered the burn.

Heat the soy wax to 160-180 degrees. This temperature will allow the fragrance oil to blend fully with the soy wax. At this point I like to add my color to the wax first. Just shave small pieces of a color block in the melted wax and stir. Then add your fragrance oil. It is very important that you weighed your wax before starting, so that you know how much fragrance oil to add. To make the calculations easier, we will use 10% by weight. If you have one pound (16 ounces) of wax, you will need 1.6 ounces of fragrance oil. 16 (ounces of wax) x 10% (fragrance load) = 1.6 ounces (fragrance oil), or 16 x .10 = 1.6 ounces. This MUST all be measured by weight, NOT fluid ounces. Fragrance oils all have a different density, therefore different weights. The only way to reach an accurate measurement is to use this formula. Using fluid ounces, or “eyeballing” it will give you inaccurate results, in which you have just wasted your time and supplies, and possibly created an unsafe candle if too much fragrance oil was added.

Stir the fragrance oil in to the melted wax while still on the heat. Once you see it is blended you will need to let the wax cool down to the pour temperature of 125-145 degrees. Turn down the heat to this range on the Presto pot, or if you did not melt the soy wax inside a pouring pot, pour into one now. Keep checking with a thermometer until you reach the desired temperature. We poured at 145 degrees.

Pour the wax into your containers. I use Popsicle sticks with small holes drilled in them to thread the wick through to hold upright while the soy wax cools. Some soy candle makers find that it is necessary to “cure” soy candles for up to 2 weeks before burning. When we test fragrance oils we generally wait 4-5 days before burning. If we don't have a good scent throw, we will wait a few more days to burn again to see if there were any changes.

Tips for producing tarts, votives and small pillars with GW444 soy wax flakes:

Use the same formula for container soy candles. After the tarts and votives cooled we were able to remove these from the molds pretty easily. Occasionally we needed to put a few in the refrigerator before they would completely release from the molds. Also, just holding the candles in our hands while in the molds would usually allow them to release. Be aware, that this wax will have a softer feel and begin to feel slippery in your hands as you hold it. Have plastic wrap or other packaging ready so that you don't mar the finish on your candles by handling them too much
