INSTRUCTIONS

Preparation:

  • Ensure that you work on a safe flat surface, candle wicks are firmly in place, and that the max fill line have been marked with a non-permanent marker to ensure that the jars are not over filled.
  • Lay down a few pieces of newspapers, as pouring candles can sometimes be messy.

 

STEP 1 – MELTING

  • The Pre-weighed Soy wax flakes should be melted in a Bain Marie double pot and should not be exposed to direct heat.
  • Melt your wax over a low heat slowly to reach between 70-73℃. The wax will have a slight yellow and clear look, which is normal.
  • Take care not to heat over 80℃ as this can influence the setting and performance of the wax. Overheated wax is very opaque in colour and can result in injury. It can also cause discolouration in the final product.

  

STEP 2 – ADDING FRAGRANCE AND COLOUR

  • Add fragrance at 69-72℃ and stir gently for a minute.
  • If adding colour, we advise to add it before the fragrance to ensure that the colour blends well with the wax.

  

STEP 3 – POURING

  • Once your fragrance and colour has blended, and the wax has cooled down to approx. 50-55℃ it is ready to be poured. The wax will still have a slight milky appearance. If the wax is too cool, it will create cavities in the wax when drying the first pour.
  • This wax does take longer to cool down to the pouring temperature. Take regular temperature readings.
  • The beeswax powder will speed up the cooling proses slightly.
  • The stearic acid does not speed up the cooling process.

IF TOPPING UP

This can be a single pour wax, but if a top up is required, follow the below steps.

 

STEP 4 – CURING AND TOP UP

  • Allow wax to cure for 12 hours. This wax will take much longer to set fully.

 

If a Top Up is required:

  • Warm up the remainder of the wax using a small Bain Marie to 54℃
  • Top up the final layer of the candle at 48-50 degrees to the maximum fill line of your containers. Allow to set for another 12 hours.
  • For very tall container candles, a half/ half pour would be required to prevent any sinkholes in the candle.

Important: Cure the candles for at least 7-10 days before use. And store in a cool dry space.

Wet spots may occur in this wax blend.

Please note: To ensure optimal performance, we strongly recommend first-time users conduct a test run on a small batch before using the wax in full-scale production.

Care & Caution

  • Follow the step-by-step instructions as closely as possible.
  • Ensure safety precautions when working with warm wax products.
  • Keep away from children and pets.
  • Store made candles safely, away from direct sunlight.

Always label a candle with a warning label. – https://sacandlesupply.co.za/product/pre-printed-warning-labels/

Wick Suggestions

Use the below as a guideline to wick correctly for this wax. Own testing is always required to ensure you select the correct wick with your wax. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING WOOD WICKS WITH SOY WAX DUE TO OVERHEATING THAT LEADS DISCOLOURATION.
