EcoSoya CB-Advanced Soy Wax (1kg)
Ecosoya Advanced Container Blend is simply the best soy container wax on the market today. It's designed to eliminate 'frosting', surface colour changing and imperfections on the surface. It produces a smooth, creamy appearance and can be poured over a wider range of temperatures with good results. It has a very long shelf-life, with candles over 5 years old still stable. This is one of the big differences between Ecosoya soy wax and other soy waxes on the market. Ecosoya is for the candle manufacturer that wants the best result and peace of mind to know their candle will be stable and last. Other cheaper soy waxes available are perhaps better suited to the home hobbyist. Most of the large manufacturers use this wax and this is the wax we recommend.

Determining Optimal Melting and Pouring Temperatures
You should first melt the wax up to and between 70 to 80 degrees Celsius. This will also vary depending on your pouring temperature. The wax has a pouring temperature between 50 and 70 degrees Celsius. We suggest doing a few small tests, pouring in 5 degree increments starting with 50 degrees Celsius. This way you will be able to work out what is working best for the room and conditions you are in. You should add any fragrance and colour about 10 degrees hotter than what you are planning to pour at and gently stir everything together. We recommend a fragrance loading between 8 and 10%. The best way to achieve this is to add the fragrance by weight. Therefore, for every 100 grams of wax, we recommend using between 8 and 10 grams of fragrance. See below for essential oils.
Please Note: Whilst some essential oils may perform reasonably in candles, we do not recommend their use. The flashpoint, especially in citrus-type essential oils, is quite low and with an ignition source a candle can easily catch fire. Essential oils do tend to work quite well in 'melts' whereby the heat source is coming from the tealight and not from the direct flame of the wick. For candle making we recommend using our fragrance oils only as they are much safer and designed for candles with a much larger variety. All oils due to their raw nature may discolour the wax.
