Candle Wax Guide

Ok so you have decided to make candles...now what?!? Deciding which wax to use is a common question that many candle makers have and always ask. Before you ask yourself this question consider answering the following questions first:

How important is it for my products to be all natural?

What amount of scent throw would I like?

What type of finish would I like my candles to have? 

What type of wick and container/ vessel will I be using?

What range would I like my cost expenses to remain in?

What level of difficulty of wax am I willing to work with?

 

Typically we usually recommend Golden Brands 464 as a beginner friendly wax. Our customers have expressed that this wax does have a trial and error method but once you cross that hurdle this wax has an amazing scent throw and perfect for those who prefer to tailor their brand to all natural products. If all natural is not a main priority we also recommend IGI 6006 known for its very strong scent throw!

However, dont be afraid to test more than one wax as you may find other waxes or even blends of more than one that may better suit your specific needs.

Be sure to check out our Candle Wax Guide to help you navigate on which wax you may want to use to make your candles.
