A few more reasons to use EcoSoya Waxes:

  • EcoSoya waxes are made using soy beans exclusively from U.S. farmers.
  • Soy is a renewable resource and environmentally friendly.
  • EcoSoya wax does not stain.
  • All EcoSoya waxes are Kosher Certified.
Detailed Tips and Tricks
Containers/Jars: Containers and jars should be clean and at ambient temperature.  No pre-heating is necessary.
Dyes: Most dyes work with CB-Advanced Soy.  To achieve better color depth, use about 30% more dye. When using liquid dyes, color blocks, chips or no dye, heat the wax to155°F (68.3°C).
Fragrances / Essential Oils: Many fragrances and essential oils work in CB-Advanced Soy, especially those designed for soy wax in general. To minimize scent loss, add scent prior to pouring but at a wax temperature no less than 135°F (57.2°C). Optimum hot scent throw is achieved with a full diameter burn pool at a depth of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm).  Some scents may react poorly causing bleed, objectionable frosting, or poor flame quality. Try a different scent to correct that occurrence.   
Wicking: CB-Advanced Soy requires larger wicking than paraffin.  A general rule of thumb:  have a full burn pool of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm) deep, from side to side, in approximately the same number of hours for every inch (2.5 cm) of the container diameter.
Example: An Apothecary jar with a diameter of 4 inches (10.2 cm) should achieve a burn pool depth of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm), side to side, within about 4 hours. The following table suggests wick types and sizes to begin testing, although adjustments may be needed.  Keep wicks trimmed to ¼ inch (0.6 cm).  If you experience poor flame quality or stability, try a different type of wick.  Test burning should be done after the candle has had a chance to set up and cure for 48 hours after pouring.
Container Size Initial Wick Suggestions (to begin testing)
Diameter: 1 to2 inches (2.5 to 5.1 cm)  RRD: 29
Diameter: 2 to 3 inches (5.1 to 7.6 cm) CD: 12
Diameter: 3 to 4 inches (7.6 to10.2 cm) CD: 20
Diameter: 4 inches + (10.2 cm +) Typically requires double wicking. Try using 2 wicks spaced 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart

Melting: When using dye, melt the wax to a minimum of 155°F (68.3°C) under gentle agitation to promote even heating and thorough mixing. Higher temperatures, in excess of 190°F (87.8°C), may cause the wax to discolor. Allow the wax to cool to the desired pour temperature.

Pouring: It is typical for wax to solidify at the beginning of the pour during its first contact with the container.  CB-Advanced Soy should have a pour temperature high enough so that when the container is full, the initial solidified wax has re-melted.  The temperature should not be so high that the liquid wax sits more than 30 minutes before starting to solidify.
Pour temperatures will vary according to container type and size, fragrance and dye, and the effects you want to achieve.  CB-Advanced Soy can be poured as low as 100° F (37.8° C) if the wax is kept in motion (constant mixing) until poured.  Lower pour temperatures  help to reduce frosting while producing a smooth top and good adhesion.  
There is a difference in cooling rates for different container configurations.  Cooling too quickly or too slowly can cause concaving and/or frosting.  Large jars such as the apothecary configurations and large candles above 8 oz (237 ml) in size cool slower and require lower pour temperatures, about 125°F (51.7°C).  Smaller candles (less than 8 oz (237 ml)) and metal/tin containers cool fast, requiring a higher pour temperature of about 155°F (68.3°C).  If difficulties are experienced with your pour temperatures, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 10°F (6°C).
When candles are poured at a lower temperature (about 110°F (43.3°C)), add the scent at a higher temperature (about 140°F (60°C)) and allow the wax to cool to the desired pour temperature.
Pour temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes.
Candle Cooling: Cool undisturbed candles at an ambient temperature of 70° F (21.1°C).  The containers should be about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) apart to allow air circulation for even cooling.  The container should remain open during cooling for at least 24 hrs (large candles may require longer times).  Slower cooling will encourage container adhesion while quicker cooling will encourage container pull away.  CB-Advanced Soy is designed to adhere to the glass and should be encouraged to do so.  Candles should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning.

Test Burning: Test burn the candle for burn pool diameter and quality after it has setup (cured or dried) for a minimum of 48 hours.  Every combination of container, wax, dye, fragrances, and wick should be tested for burn quality.
Storage (Packaged): CB-Advanced Soy flakes should be stored in a cool dry location away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture.  Temporary extremes in temperatures, cold or hot, have no adverse effect.  CB-Advanced Soy may be used frozen, and, if partially melted, allowed to cool and re-solidify before use.
General Trouble Shooting
Test for one variable at a time when trouble shooting to isolate the cause. Variables include (but are not limited to): the container, wax, dye, fragrance, wick, pour temperature, and environmental conditions such, as cooling temperature, along with manufacturing conditions.
  • First make a candle in the container with only the wick (no dye or fragrance).  If it looks good then the wax is performing normally.
  • Then, one at a time, change a variable. Try adding the dye without fragrance to the container, wax and wick.  If it looks good and burns well, the dye is compatible with the wax.
  • Try adding the fragrance without dye to the container, wax and wick.  If it looks good and burns well, the fragrance is compatible with the wax.
  • Try the dye and fragrance together with the container, wax and wick.  If it looks good and burns well the dye/fragrance combination is compatible with the wax.
  • If you are experiencing burn problems, try a different type or size of wick.
  • Other variables to try are different pouring and cooling temperatures and even different containers.
  • Ensure all equipment and materials are contaminant free.
  • Test for one variable at a time when trouble shooting to isolate the cause.
Shelf Life: When stored properly, as per instructions, CB-Advanced Soy has a minimum shelf life of 3 years. However, for finished candles, our tests have shown that they can last at least 10 years.

Does not hold fragrance well
This wax does not hold fragrance well at all. I put 4 table spoons of my frankinscence into a 4 ounce container and it completely washed out. Very disappointing!!

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Frances! I'm so sorry you were disappointed in this wax. We find the EcoSoya Advanced Wax holds scent beautifully and use it in many of our candle recipes as seen in the Sunday Night Spotlight: EcoSoya Advanced Wax blog post and Wax Tart Melts 3 Ways Tutorial. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Great wax. A little picky.
I bought this wax to make wax tarts for my business. I was really glad to know about the US grown soy beans and I use that as a selling point to my customers! I did find that the temperature can be picky when you pour the wax. Sometimes you get an ash on the top but it rubs off easily with a paper towel or pantyhose. It also isn't as strong as beeswax so be wary if corners get a tiny bit scuffed up when you store them. Overall really good if you keep them packed properly!

Perfect for Warmers
I ordered this on 10/23/2014 to try and make my own scented wax for my warmer. This wax was easy to use and the scent lasted all day with just one little cube. I am so pleased with how easy it was to use and how my house smells using this. I will be ordering again soon.

Chai Tea Latte Candels
This wax is very easy to work with. I have tried using paraffin a number of times with many challenges in timing, heat and warmth of the containers. These candles smell good enough to drink! I still am amazed that whipping hot wax will actually whip into what looks like whipped cream atop a Chai Tea Latte or Hot Cocoa Candles. I have made many of these throughout the year and they come out beautifully.
