Details

Finally a plant-based (NO PARAFFIN AT ALL) natural wax with a fragrance throw that will knock your socks off both hot and cold!  This is considered the finest plant wax available and will not disappoint in a luxury candle line.  

Coconut Apricot wax produces a truly unforgettable candle experience for both the end user and the candle maker.  Its smooth, creamy, off-white finish, fantastic scent throw, and long burn time appeal to the user.  The candle maker will love how easy it is to use, no additives are needed, it's single-pour, and does not need to be finished with a heat gun for smooth tops.  You don't need to use as much fragrance oil to get a strong scent throw!  The cure time is 12-18 hours so candles can be made and sold pretty much right away.

Its a keeper!

I've never had much luck with soy, so I was eager to give this a try! Now, I live in Florida - so the wax was little more melty ordering in July, but I wanted to test before candle season. I made my first candle and its true! It cures practically overnight! I made a 4" recycling an old B&BW jar and used a large wooden wick. Following the scent guide, the scent throw is good hot and cold after just 3 days of curing! The wax pool is right where it needs to be! I really couldn't be happier! I typically use feather palm wax for votives (that's what I've had the best luck with and they are always beautiful), but now I feel confident to make containers too! I am just a hobbyist making candles for myself and as gifts. But you never know ....

Sweating and sinkoles and often weak cold and hot throws, but I'm still experimeting

I really want this one to work, however the chronic sinkholes even at various temperatures that are within suggested pouring ranges are either too low or high, and I can't see a way of fixing that without the use of a heatgun or slightly modifying this wax with a little bit of beeswax. I'm now trying hard to find that perfect amount of beeswax. Also, in every test either using the original blend on its own or adding a little beeswax, using anywhere from 7-8% fragrance, the fragrance sweats out. IMO, does not seem this holds more than 6 ounces without the surface sweating.

It's A Keeper!

LOVE this wax! The HT is way better than I ever got with Freedom soy or 454, and it's so easy to work with. I still recommend letting it cure 2 weeks prior to burning for the best throw but the smooth, glossy tops and amazing performance are worth it.
