Make perfect tarts and votive candles with our proprietary blend of soy wax and paraffin wax. This para-soy wax comes in granular form for easy measuring & scooping, and has a melt point of 132°. Candle scent fragrance load is up to 10% (1.6 oz per pound of wax). Making scent tarts and votives are now a breeze and you get premium scent throw with para-soy wax!

**Please note: the texture of this wax has changed slightly. It is no longer granular but now in small pastilles. This is the same formulation - that has not changed. You may receive the old or new texture as this change is implemented.

Helpful Product Information:
Melt Point: 132°F



Directions & Ingredients


Directions:
All wax should be aired out 24-48 hours prior to using to remove excess moisture. Open up bag and stir/rotate wax every few hours. Store in a cool, dry area.

Heat to approx 160°-175° using a double boiler or a melter;, add color and candle scent, stir constantly for two minutes, then pour into clamshells, foil cups or molds. Pour temperature should be around 150°-160°.

When doing votives, a repour is required.

Because this contains soy wax, it needs to cure. Start with 1-2 weeks. As with all candles or melts containing soy wax: the longer they cure, the better they will throw. WARNING: Never melt wax on direct heat such as stove burner, always us a melter or double boiler method.

"Hello! Just got this wax and it's wonderful. My question is what exactly is the temperature to add fragrance?? The directions state to heat this wax to 160-170 and then add fragrance. However other sources state to always add fragrance at 185. Adding fragrance at a lower temp will not give off the best throw. "

"I used to use only soy wa..."
COMMENTS:  I used to use only soy wax for tarts but got mixed results with cold and hot throw. Someone on YouTube, I think it was Holly at MoRiver, recommended this wax a few years ago so I tried it and I LOVE it. It never goes wrong unless I don't pay attention and use a fragrance oil that doesn't do well in wax. I would like to get away from paraffin but this blend gives me exactly what I'm looking for when making wax tarts. It can hold a pretty high fragrance load, they're nice and hard, and they always throw well when I play by the rules. Advantages: Hardness, 10% fragrance load, value for the money (for me and my customers) Disadvantages: Paraffin ... but plain old soy just doesn't work as well, and other hard waxes are too hard and not economical

"I'd heard a lot of positi..."
COMMENTS:  I'd heard a lot of positive comments about this product from different forums and places. I decided to start making wax melts/tarts with the best I could find and the Para-Soy blend seems to be just what I was looking for! The product is finely ground up so it's easy to melt. Made my first product less than a week ago but even using a tester for a day 1 heat of the wax melt, the scent has already lasted 4 days without replacing the wax in my melter. It's easy to say I'm amazed. I wasn't expecting this type of payoff. I'm excited to try with other scents and blends knowing that my products will come out just right! Advantages: Holds on to scents like glue! Cold throw and hot throw are both fantastic. Already comes in ground so finely that no cutting is needed, just weight it before melting.

COMMENTS:  I used 1.5 oz. of fragrance oil per pound of this wax and my tarts are perfect. Since they are a little softer due to max. scent load, they melted quickly in my burner and i could smell them almost immediately. There was no problem with them releasing from the clamshell. One tiny square of the tart has scented my livingroom and kitchen. Great! Advantages: Great cold and hot throw. Disadvantages: None.
