A few more reasons to use EcoSoya Waxes:
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.
I used this to make soy candles. It melted smoothly and made a creamy white candle. I did try it in some salves but they failed. I think it is too soft -- but it works great for candles.
I used this wax to make wax tarts for my first ever wax project. It was easy to use and they smell great. Energy, Island Escape and Anjou Pear all seemed to work well with this wax. I was especially pleased with the Anjou Pear--it is very light and sweet. I followed directions from tutorials on the Soap Queen Blog which were very clear and easy! Thanks to you all for your quick courteous service!
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!
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!
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.
