Our 100% MIDWEST Soy is a container wax that is tremendous as-is, or as a base for your own custom formulation. With a 125 degree F melting point, this formulation gives great adhesion to your jars and offers very little shrink when poured cool. You can get better colors and tops when mixing 5% SOY MODIFIER to this wax.
For those who want full control of their specific wax blend, this wax acts as a very stable base for your creation. This wax will hold a fragrance load of up to 10% in its raw form, making it one of the best candle bases available. Readily available and compatible with most other waxes, including paraffin and beeswax, your custom wax formulation is easy to create with this wax.
Note: If you’re a beginner and want a simple, high-quality wax, we recommend starting with FREEDOM Soy Wax, and moving to MIDWEST CONTAINER as you get your formulas dialed in when creating your unique branded products.
For best results:
- Heat wax to 160 F (see update below).
- Stir in your fragrance and/or color.
- Pour immediately into your candle jar.
***UPDATE*** Some of our labeling suggests adding your fragrance at 140F. While this is true for most fragrances, we find that 160F is a more universal temperature for many fragrances. Be sure to test each fragrance for best results.
*Vigorously stirring your wax can cause aeration, which is a no-no for soy candle production. Always test your fragrance and wicks for proper burning qualities.
Tip: This wax is compatible with most other candle waxes and offers a tremendous base for adding beeswax, paraffin, or other waxes to customize your blend.
