LiveSoy™ (Pillar) Wax Pellets - Quality Soy Wax for Pillar Candles - Various Sizes

Description

New LiveSoy™ Pillar is made from 100% pure soy beans and carefully selected botanical oils.  It has a soft creamy appearance, with a more natural soy scent.

We would recommend purchasing and testing in small batches if you are switching from another Soy Wax Blend. LiveSoy Pillar might perform slightly differently to others on the market. Fragrances and Dyes do not always perform the same across different Soy Blend Waxes. 

Product Overview

Please note that this is a PILLAR wax and comes in PELLET form. This soy wax has excellent scent throw with both fragrance and essential oils alike (Max Scent Load 8%).  It also has less glass adhesion when compared to LiveSoy™ Classic, making it perfect for melts and candles designed to separate from their moulds.

Suggested Use

Melting

This wax has a melt temperature of approx. 55C (131F).  It may be heated temporarily as high as 86.9C (188F) if powder dyes are being used, but temperatures in excess of this may cause the wax to discolour.  Before adding any colour or fragrance, make sure that the melted wax has been thoroughly stirred to ensure an even heat distribution.

Using Dyes

This wax works well with most powder, liquid and solid dyes, but to achieve a deep colour, about 30% extra dye will need to be used.  When using powder dyes the wax needs to be raised to a temperature of approx 86.9C (188F) and stirred continuously until all the dye has been completely dissolved.  It is often easier, when using powder dyes, to dissolve the powder dye in fragrance before adding to the wax.

Using Fragrance

Many, but not all, fragrances work well in this wax.  Fragrances can be either synthetic, or essential oil, depending on taste.  The recommended maximum scent load for this wax is 8%. If you use more than that, the wax may not be able to hold the fragrance in suspension and you will get 'wet spots' where the fragrance has puddled.

It is recommended that any fragrance is added just before pouring - but a temperature no lower than 57.2C (135F).  Make an allowance for the slight temperature drop when you add the cool fragrance.  

The optimum scent throw from this wax is achieved when you have a full size melt pool with a depth of 1/4 - 1/2".  Not all fragrances are suitable for soya wax and may lead to frosting or poor flame quality.  If this happens, try a different fragrance.

Wicking

Soy wax needs a larger wick than paraffin waxes, and cotton cored, paper cored and zinc cored wicks should be avoided as they tend to get a bit of a carbon build up which will give rise to 'sooting'.

The general guide from the manufacturer is to achieve a full melt pool extending from side to side, with a depth of 1/4-1/2" in approximately the same number of hours for every inch (2.5cm) of the diameter of the container.

For example:  If you have a container with a diameter of approx 10cm (4"), the full melt pool should be achieved in approx 4 hours.  ie: 1 hour for every inch diameter.

Wick Size Guide

The following wicks are a guide ONLY.  They don't take into account any use of fragrance or dye, which will effect the wick.  Use the guide as a starting point, but Test-Burn and adjust if necessary.

Diameter of melt pool        Suggested Wick

25-51mm (1-2")                 LX8, LX10   
       
51-76mm (2-3")                 LX14, LX16, LX18

76-100mm (3-4")               LX20, LX22, LX24, LX28

Pouring

Pour temperatures will vary according to the size of container being used.  The size will effect the rate of cooling, and cooling too quickly (or slowly) can cause the wax to frost, or the top surface to become concave.

Large jars - 8oz or 235ml and over - will cool more slowly and need a lower pouring temperature to allow them to cool evenly.  Pour these size candles at approx 51.7C (125F).

Smaller containers - (less than 8oz or 235ml) will cool more quickly, so a higher pour temperature of about 68C (155F) will work well.

Allow the candles to cool undisturbed in an ambient temperature of approx 70F (21C).  The containers need to be at least 1/2" apart to allow for proper air circulation and even cooling.  Leave any lids off the containers for at least 24 hours - longer for really large ones.  Allow the candles to 'cure' for at least 48 hours before test burning.  It really does make a difference!
