NatureWax C-6 Coconut/Soy Wax

Melt Point: 124 - 130°F

Advantages of using C-6 coconut/soy wax:
- Typically requires only a single pour (tops can be smoothed out with a heat gun if necessary)
- Strong hot and cold scent throw
- Typical fragrance load is 6% or less (fragrance loads up to 7-10% are possible with the addition of additives)
- Smooth and creamy appearance
- Excellent jar adhesion
- Comes in slab form
- No additives required
- Melt point: 124 – 130°F
- Heat wax to temperature 160 - 200° (caution: heating wax above 200° may cause wax discoloration)
- Add dye as needed and mix thoroughly
- Add candle fragrance oil as needed and mix thoroughly (fragrance oil should be added just before pouring to prevent fragrance oil from evaporating)
- Pouring temperatures should typically be around 120° to 165°, though experimentation is recommended to determine optimal pouring temperature
- When pouring melted wax into containers, the containers should be at room temperature or slightly warmer
- Allow candles to cool as slow as possible to achieve good jar adhesion and create a smooth finish

I ordered a couple 2lbs samples to give this a try. Yesterday I mixed 16oz wax with 1oz USA ( universal soy additive) , heated to 200 added 10% fragrance and poured right away.. Nice smooth tops but I always poke a few holes and hit with a heat gun just in case there is air trapped. The CT - outstanding. I'm test burning for HT right now ( only about 16 hours cure time) and I'm very happy with it! I made another batch but used 1oz Soy Modifier instead.. CT is outstanding and I bet the HT will be too.

I’ve been wanting to switch to coconut wax from para-Soy for a while. I was really excited to see TFC was carrying it now so I purchased 2 lbs to try out. From what I understand, coconut wax should be smooth and have excellent scent throw but I had neither. I was told that the manufacturer would not disclose the percentage of soy to coconut in the wax so I guess it’s mostly soy. I heated to 190 and poured at 165. After letting it sit overnight and smoothing with a heat gun, I still had sinkholes and couldn’t smell the fragrance at all while burning. Maybe I did something wrong? But from the reasonable price I’m assuming it’s mostly soy. Bummed.
