Great wax for containers

I've had really good luck with this wax. I've been making soy candles for nearly 20 years, and the 415 works well for me. It has great hot and cold throw. True, it does frost, but soy wax does that, and I've learned to embrace it. The Flaming Candle has been wonderful to work with as well.

Not only is this soy kosher, but it also creates a magnificent overall candle! Great fragrance load capacity, perfect glass adhesion and it holds color beautifully! Vibrant. I was concerned at first using a wax with no additives but I prefer this over 464, 444, CB Xcel and so on. This one is a winner for me. 444 was a very close second!
My favorite wax

First starting out I tried several different soy waxes. I keep coming back to this one. The scent throw is really amazing. I always get compliments on my candles. After finding the right fragrance suppliers (the flaming candle is one wink; wink; and the best wick for this wax I have a great candle. Also it seems the cure time is less with this wax than others. I still have a couple of fragrances that I have to wait a week on, but that is usually the max. I appreciate that the flaming candle carries this. It ships the quickest to me. All around great!
