Product Description

YALEY-Microwaveable Soy Wax. This is a special blend of soy beans with other botanical oils and it makes up this 100% natural soot-free wax. Soy wax is an excellent alternative to paraffin wax since the melting point of this wax is 135 degrees and the melting point of the pillar/votive blend is 140 degrees. Each box features full color project ideas on the top of the lid and complete instructions on the inside. This wax may be enhanced with any Yaley candle scents or dyes. No special wicks needed: sizes and types vary with the project as explained in the instructions. This package contains 1lb/454g of white wax. Made in USA.

Microwaveable Soy Wax sounds like a great idea, and it certainly is a perfect way to get started with candlemaking. You get a 1 pound container of soy wax chips. You simply toss some into the microwave, melt it down, and then pour the wax into a candle-safe container with a wick. Voila, it hardens, and you have a candle.

You can get the kit for $6 and from that you make about 3 medium sized candles. By default these candles have no odor and are milky white in color. You can add candle coloring and candle aroma to them easily enough. I only had soap coloring on me when I tested this out, and those didn't work at all :) So make sure you do use a candle color system. The soap coloring, which is liquid, just stayed suspended as tiny little balls and never affected the color of the liquid. I thought I might get a "dots of color" effect, but since the candle cools to a solid milky white, they became invisible.

So, the process. You start with a bag of chips. It looks like a lot, but really this melts down into a very small amount of liquid.

It only takes a minute or two, in a tupperware container, in the microwave to have this melting happen. I would set aside a tupperware just for candlemaking, rather than trying to clean the wax off of it to use it for food again. Once the wax is fully melted, it is a clear, yellowish liquid. You pour this into a candle-safe container, usually glass, but of course you can use pottery or other containers as you wish.

Since the resulting candle is not translucent, your options for decorating are generally restricted to colors - or creating layers by making one color from part of the chips, then another from another set of chips, and pouring them in one at a time.

This product is great if you are just beginning to think about making candles. With this wax you don't need to spend a great deal of money just to discover that you are unable to obtain beautiful candles. If you have what many houses today have - a microwave, a safe microwave container (maybe a measuring cup?) and a votive holder- you are almost there. You just need a candle thermometer CANDLEMAKING THERMOMETER-, some wick clips CANDLE WICK CLIPS 12/PKG-20MM, wick CANDLE WICKING BLEACHED-MEDIUM 6 FEET and this wax. If you are up for something more fancy, you can add color and scent, although they are not necessary.

The wax comes in flakes, so you don't need to cut it. Just put any amount in the measuring cup, heat it on the microwave and wait for the correct temperature. Meanwhile, attach the wick and the clip to the bottom of the votive with a bit of hot glue. Then pour the wax in the votive holder and wait for it to harden. And you are all set! The result is a very nice looking candle. Of course, if you add a color, the result is even better.

I have observed that when adding scent, the best ones to use are the liquid ones. They add a creamy texture to the finishing candle that the ones in block don't.

This was an easy way to get into candle making. My only complaint is that the wicks will randomly go out. I know it is not the wicks fault because I have used with other wax. Maybe there is a wick that is more compatible with soy but as far as I know there is not. Good luck with you candle endeavors.

after 5 minutes, it exploded in the microwave. And it did not melt quickly. It seems like it does not need to be "microwaveable" for soy candle since i have to use can/tint bottle for melting job anyway.

Takes a few minutes to melt in the microwave but, it melts very well. Works well with crayons.
