This soy wax is perfect if you're just starting to make candles. Shipped fast in a large resealable bag.

I didn't want to invest yet in a bunch of supplies since I didn't know if I wanted to stick with this or not (making Xmas gifts for now). After heavy research and making 5 imperfect candles, this is how I finally figured out how to make beautiful candles with very few store bought supplies:

1) Clean glasses and ceramic cups/bowls/jars thoroughly. I used mason jars I had at home and bought a few ceramic cups from thrift stores.
2) Melted wax flakes in a cleaned tin can (ones that hold canned food), inside a heavy-bottomed pot. Don't turn up heat too high.
3) Use candy thermometer to track temperature while gently stirring flakes until melted. Remove can holding wax from heat when thermometer reads 180-185 degrees F.
4) Depending on type of fragrance you're using, let wax cool until you're able to add fragrance. I used fragrance oils from Candle Science (B0092RNCSY most of which were safe to add at 180 degrees F.
5) While wax cools, thread wicks through wick tabs (B001683N86 I fray the end that's going to the bottom of the candle so when I make the wick taught later I won't pull the wick out. If you don't want to purchase wick tabs I found this method to also work ([...]
6) If using glass, run it under a hair dryer or hot water to warm up the glass. This will help the wax bond with the glass instead of making holes along the sides.
7) Place the wick and wick tab inside the container.

I'm pretty sure I got the 5 pound version of this same product, but for some reason I'm being prompted to review the larger size. I would recommend this wax to anyone who makes candles. It melts suuuper fast and pours easily, and it hardens really quickly when refrigerated. It doesn't hold scent as well as I wanted it to, but I've also only used it one time so far, and that was my first time making a candle since like the first grade so maybe I just need to try using more perfume than I tried. When I added color to it the finished product came out a little bit lighter than I wanted, so just add a good bit of whatever color product you're using and it'll be perfect.

I just started making candles and I love this soy blend rather than the regular soy wax with no additives. I couldn't seem to get it right with the regular 100% soy. But with the GW 444, I was able to get smooth tops without a 2nd poor with a great scent throw. Not saying I got perfect smooth tops every time , but 4 out of 5 candles I did. Also this wax is good for making whipped cream wax once it cools.
I heated the wax up to about 190 to 200 using a candy thermometer. Took it out of the boiler and poured into a Pyrex measuring cup which cools it faster. I add my color if needed. I add my fragrance at 180 degrees. (If it cooled down below 180, heat it up again in the microwave in 30 sec increments until it reaches 180. 180 is the temp that the fragrance will mesh with the wax and maintain it's scent. Use a digital thermometer for quick readings for the fragrance pour and container pour) Mix well with a wooden skewer. Pour at 145 degrees exactly for good results. And it comes out great if you don't touch or move the container after it's poured. I've learned, messing with it or moving it after pouring could cause some issues on the surface when it cools. So pour in a place where it's out of the way and it can sit still.
This wax says it can take up to 15% fragrance. I misread that when I started using it only using 12%. But it still throws great. But for sure I will try 15% now. lol
Over all, I see people having all kinds of problems like I was. My advice is to use this 444 soy wax, get a digital thermometer, get good concentrated fragrances that are really potent and get a scale that weighs in ounces and and can "tear" (Zero out the weight of the pot or measuring cup on the scale so that it will only weigh the new liquid being poured in).

It's a very good wax for container candles!
Not recommended for pillars though they tend to crack!
But for a container candle Just great! The price was great also!

Power goes out frequently in the winter in the north east. I decided I wanted to make a few dozen emergency candles. This wax was super easy to work with. I put my Mason jars a large stock pot with water 3/4s the way up the jar filled with wax. The wax melted in no time but, you'll need to top off the jar a couple of times to fill it to just below the threads. I let the wax set a bit before I placed my pre-tabbed wicks so they wouldn't fall over. Once the wax was partially solidified on top I tossed in a book of matches and screwed the lid on. I now have virtually vacuum sealed emergency candles ready to go. 5 lbs will do 12 half pint jars to just below the threads with a sandwich bag of wax to spare.
