Tips for Identifying High-Quality Soy Wax

Choosing the best soy wax for yourself can feel overwhelming with so many suppliers out there and so many different brand names available. Some soy waxes are better for container candles and wax melts;  other types of soy wax can even be used for moulded candles.

Understanding which soy wax suits your intended application is key to achieving optimal results. Let’s explore how to select the best soy wax.

Tips for Choosing Soy Wax

Choose which type of candle you would like to create.  Choose paraffin wax if you would like to make affordable moulded candles that burn for a long time.  Paraffin wax remains an excellent choice for making candles because it is so versatile.  Paraffin wax can be moulded, coloured, manipulated and engineered to produce any number of shapes, surface finishes and physical characteristics.

If you would like to create luxury scented container candles or soy wax melts, there is no better choice than 100% pure soy wax.

  1. How do I choose the right soy wax for my candles? 

Consider the following:

  • Application: Choose soy wax designed for container candles and or wax melts.
  • Purity: Opt for 100% soy wax without additives for the most natural candle.
  • Fragrance Holding Capacity: Look for waxes that offer good fragrance holding ability.
  • Creaminess:  Choose a soy wax that is moisturising if you intend making massage candles.
  1. How do I melt and pour soy wax for candle making?

Use a double boiler or a dedicated wax melting pitcher. Heat the wax to the recommended temperature (usually around 65°C). Add fragrance oils when the wax is completely melted. Pour carefully into containers and allow to cool and set.

  1. How can I ensure my soy wax candles burn evenly?

Use the correct size and type of wick for your container. Ensure the wax is poured at the right temperature and allowed to cool evenly. Trim the wick to 1/2 cm before each burn to prevent smoking and ensure a steady flame.

  1. How should soy wax candles be stored? 

Store soy wax candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Keep them covered to prevent dust and preserve their fragrance content.
