Where To Buy Soy Wax For Candle Making

So, its no wonder that the pandemic has seen a massive upswing of folks trying to learn how to make their own soy candles, either to sell as a side hustle- or just for their own wedding favours!

where to buy soy wax for candle making

This is our coveted, tried-and-tested list of candle making suppliers that we've created over the years- and we're so glad to pass on this list of the best and most affordable candle suppliers in Canada.

Oh- except none of these candle making supplies are from Amazon... (see the note at the end of this blog post for why you SHOULDN'T SHOP for your candle making supplies on Amazon)

We don't list ANY wick choices here, as wicking is one of the hardest parts of candle making- and you may even have an existing wick in mind (such as the popular wooden wick, or braided cotton wick).

VCC is our top, "all-rounder" supplier, and if you don't get any further than this, you'll probably still be able to successfully start a candle business just purchasing from VCC! Keep in mind, many hobby candle makers already shop here, so if you want to stand out from the crowd- mix and match with other suppliers for unique candle results!

Possibly the hardest- and most important part- of making your own candles, is nailing the fragrance. There is Hot Throw (how the candle smells when lit), Cold Throw (how it smells unlit) to master- plus you need to worry about adhesion, frosting, sink holes AND cracking. And that's after you've made an accord or scent that folks actually want to buy!

So, long story short: you may need to test a few fragrances and scent combinations before you're on your way to selling your candles (or burning them yourself.). When in doubt, go with a single, in-house blend of fragrance oils such as the one's offered by VCC.

We have put a link to just the pthalate-free candle scents above, as you need to be cautious about consumer behaviour when making candles, and it's very common to get this question from customers.

This out-of-the-way supplier is on Vancouver Island of all places, so their shipping fees are HIGH. But, in our experience it's worth it for their super unique, higher-end premium candle fragrances.

For this reason- to make SAFE candles that don't lead to broken jars, or jars filled with molten hot wax- you need to be able to MATCH YOUR WICK SIZE to your jar diameter, once you've decided on your wax and fragrance.

The problem with Amazon, is that the Amazon candle making supplies and sellers change frequently- and you may not be able to replicate your results! Meaning you've wasted your time AND money, even if you thought you were getting a deal initially.

So, close those Amazon searches for "best soy candle wax deal", and get out your pen and paper (and maybe credit card). You're about to start your journey toward hobby candle making with actual, tested Canadian Candle suppliers.

Don't forget we offer DIY Candle Making kits for beginners- these make amazing gifts for candle lovers, or as a test-run to see if you even enjoy the process. And it IS a process. You'll see :P

CandleScience is the leading provider of all-natural soy candle wax to hobbyists, professional candle makers, and businesses of all sizes across the US. Our in-house team of experts conducts rigorous testing on our line of soy waxes, including waxes from AAK (formerly Golden Brands), EcoSoya, and Blended Waxes Inc, to ensure great performance and strong fragrance throw.

Working with wax can be time consuming and messy. An alternative to flakes are wax beads, which are easier to portion out and are designed to be melted in a microwave in a matter of minutes. The liquified results pour smoothly and take scent well; once hardened, your candles will burn slowly and evenly. The process requires some experimentation to figure out the ideal temperature setting for your microwave, but you do get a lot of product to work with.

These flakes have a slight yellow tinge to them, and they result in elegant candles with a creamy, opaque finish. They are ideal for melting down to create container candles, having a strong adhesion to glass as well as a clean and leisurely burn. It can be difficult, however, to achieve fragrance with this wax: It has an excellent cold throw (fragrance released when the candle is unlit) but a poor hot throw (fragrance released when the candle is burning). But the flakes alone carry no scent and hold dye well, so this is a good option for making decorative unscented candles.

Soy waxes have continued to increase in popularity over the past few years among candle-makers. Some benefits of using soy wax over paraffin wax include the following:

Naturewax C-3 premium wax is a soy wax for container candles and tealights and is formulated to deliver top quality and excellent performance. Superior fragrance-holding qualities produce candles with a pleasing cold throw scent that attracts consumers and stimulates impulse purchases at the point of sale. Plus, they throw their aroma further when burning, which fosters increased customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. The C-3 single-pour container wax also offers excellent adhesion to containers.

Naturewax C-6 premium wax is a blend of coconut and soy for container candles and tealights. This wax produces a smooth finish on top, has a beautiful white finish, is designed to adhere to the sides of jars, and is a true single-pour wax when used properly.

Golden Brands "Golden Wax" Soy Waxes are a little newer than NatureWax products, however, they have quickly become a favorite among candle-makers. They offer more products to choose from than the NatureWax line, which allows you to choose which wax works best for your specific needs. These waxes are used in candles, lotions, lip balms, and many other non-edible uses. We currently carry four Golden Wax Soy products, two of which are pure soy container waxes and two of which are enhanced soy container waxes.

GW416 is a pure soy wax that contains no additives and is FDA-approved and Kosher-certified. It blends well with beeswax, paraffin, slack wax, and microcrystalline waxes. This wax is excellent for making soy wax tarts, votives, and pillar candles.

Type of Wax: Enhanced Soy Container WaxMelt Point: 130 F - 135 FMax Fragrance: 8 - 10%Suggested Pour Temp: 140 F - 150FAppearance: Smooth and opaque (please note that this wax can shrink so a second pour may be necessary to level out the tops of your candles or tarts).For Use In: tarts, votives, & pillarsSuggested Wick Series: ECO Wicks or CD WicksFlash Point: >600 F

Our customers are the backbone of this company and we show appreciation by offering fair prices, local pick up by appointment and unbeatable products. A premium candle starts with premium wax. So let's get to making!

I waited for my curing and a week worth of burning to write my review. Out the bottle the scent is captivating! I used 10% in soy candle and it is perfect. Definitely one of my favorites! I will definitely order again!

For my first candle attempt using the Coco Apricot - I was soooooooo pleasantly surprised. The tops were beautifully smooth and white. When mixed with the Mint Lavender fragrance -- I was so surprised by the scent-- wasn't what I expected esp since Im not a fan of Lavender... but that's changed now!! Thank you!

When Mika says this scent would not be out of place at Neiman Marcus do not doubt that! I was inspired to get into candle making by candles like Cire Trudon's Ernesto. That $125 candle is iconic and this fragrance I believe rivals it. I read the notes and thought maybe this would be a dupe of Ernesto which I would have been happy with. It is not. It is unapologetically its own thing but just as iconic. It is unique, complex and top shelf!

A truly one-pour wax, No.7 requires no heat gunning, pour overs, or preheating your jars.

Fragrance Load: No.7 wax can accommodate a fragrance load of 10% to 12% with most fragrance oils. Please conduct your own testing to ensure candle safety, as each fragrance oil may behave differently.

Consumers also buy candles as a focus point for their home decor, as well as for aromatherapy like relaxation and stress reduction, according to the National Candle Association. Taking a quick look on Google Trends shows us that global interest for homemade candles is consistent:

And while candles may be used for various purposes across the globe, most of the searches for homemade candles are concentrated around North America, the UK, and Australia. This is great intel for candlemakers looking to find a market for their DIY products:

One of the hottest candle varieties on the market today, soy candles are made from a base of soy wax. This wax is derived from soybeans and, therefore, is made from vegetables (opposed to regular oil- or paraffin-based candles). The soy wax segment is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.5% from 2019 to 2025, according to Grand View Research.

Aromatherapy candles makers market their products as offering specific benefits that correlate to certain scents. Generally, the recipes for these candles use essential oils that are meant to enhance physical or mental well-being. For example, lavender scents are often associated with relaxation. 041b061a72
