A case of Golden Brand's soy wax is 45 pounds.
Details: Golden Brand Soy Wax 444 is a container candle soy wax that has a natural soy based additive that helps the candle absorb more fragrance oil and helps to reduce soy wax frosting. Golden Brands 444 soy wax will melt more slowly than Golden Brands 464 soy wax due to its higher melt point. This soy wax is also used by some of our customers for candle tarts. The soybeans used to make this soy wax were grown in the USA!
Directions and information: Heat soy wax to 185 degrees F. Add coloring. Add 1.5 oz. of Natures Garden concentrated fragrance oil of your choice, stir. Heavier fragrances (fragrances with higher flash points) can be added at 185 degrees F. Lighter fragrances (fragrances with lower flash points) such as citrus type fragrances, should be added at around 160 degrees F. Allow your soy wax to cool at room temp until it reaches 110 degrees F. Your wax will be slightly slushy in appearance. Pour soy wax at this temperature into candle containers. Allow to set up at room temp.
Note: Do not get your soy wax hotter than 200 degrees F or it may begin to discolor. It used to be thought that adding fragrance to soy wax at a low temperature would prevent it from evaporating out of the wax prematurely (we used to suggest adding fragrance to soy wax at 130 degrees F). However, our testing has shown us that fragrance needs to be added at a hotter temperature so that the fragrance properly binds with the soy wax. Heavier fragrances containing vanilla can be added to the hot soy wax at around 185 degrees F; while we suggest adding lighter, lower flash point fragrances such as citrus type fragrances, at 160 degrees F. Citrus type fragrances can break down at high temps; this is why we suggest adding them to the hot wax at this lower temp.
Soy Wax has a natural frosting look. In order to reduce this frosting look on the tops of your candles, apply heat to finished candles with a hot hair dryer.
