C6 Coconut and Soy Candle Wax: C6 is available in 12-pound slabs or 60-pound boxes only. This wax is fairly soft and is very easy to chunk up to fit into your melter. C6 is considered a "coconut wax" but is made up of a blend of soy wax and hydrogenated coconut oil. This is not soft like traditional coconut oil but it is also not as hard as any of the soy waxes. If you wish to have a pre-blended coconut wax that you can call a "coconut" candle, this would be the wax for you. It is very easy to use, white in color, works with either of the wicks we carry, and works well with just about any fragrance and all essential oils that are applicable for candles (not all essential oils burn for candles so always make sure to do a test burn first). You can use this wax to create container candles, tealights or wax melts. C6 will make a softer candle so if you live in a hotter environment or you are shipping candles to hotter areas you will need to have a warning that states candles can get soft in warmer environments,
- Melt wax to 124° to 165°.
- Stir melting wax frequently to evenly distribute heat.
- Cool the melted wax down to 130° or below to add fragrance/essential oil/dyes. If you add the fragrance/essential oil when the wax is too hot you will just start burning off your scent. The more you can allow it to cool before adding the scent/essential oil, the better your finished candle will smell. Stir well to allow the scent/essential oil/dye to completely blend in. I suggest a couple of minutes to ensure good dispersion. You can add 6-10% scent/essential oil. You will have to determine the desired amount based upon your scent/essential oil and how strong you want your candle to smell.
- Make sure your containers are at room temperature or even slightly warmer. Allow the melted wax to cool to between 110° to 130° before pouring.
- Allow the finished candle to stand for 24 hours before burning.

Coconut-1- 100% pure hydrogenated coconut oil. Ideal for container candles, lotion bars, and massage candles.

Golden Wax 444 comes in flake form, is very easy to work with, is white in color, works with either of the wicks we carry, and works well with just about any fragrance and all essential oils that are applicable for candles (not all essential oils burn for candles so always make sure to do a test burn first).
