Blended Waxes – BW 923 Instructions
BW-923 is an all-natural specialty wax blend with soy, palm, and coconut for wax melts and tarts. This wax blend is in a easy to use pastille format, is off-white, with a smooth and creamy appearance and formulated for a high fragrance load.
Molds: Wax Melt Containers, such as clamshells, should be clean and at ambient temperature. No pre-heating is necessary.
Dyes: The various dye blocks we carry work well with Blended Waxes – BW 923. When using dyes, heat the wax to ~180°F, add the dye, and mix until dissolved.
Fragrances: Recommended maximum scent load is 15%. It is recommended that after you melt your wax that you remove from heat and then add your fragrance, stirring gently for approximately 2 minutes to make sure fragrance is fully combined with the wax. If you are using a fragrance with a lower flash point, make an adjustment to your wax temperature as necessary.
Melting: Melt Blended Waxes – BW 923 to 180°F under gentle agitation to promote even heating and thorough mixing. Add any desired fragrance and dye, mixing well to incorporate. Allow the wax to cool to the 160°F - 180°F pour temperature.
- Pour temperatures will vary according to mold type and size, fragrance(s), essentials oils, dye(s), and the wax tart effects you desire.
- Different mold configurations result in various cooling rates. Cooling too quickly or too slowly can cause concaving and/or frosting. A recommended starting temperature is 160°F-170°F. Pour temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes and adjusted as necessary for the size/type of container using.
- As the wax is being poured, it is typical for wax to solidify at first contact with the container. Blended Waxes – BW 923 should have a pour temperature high enough so that when the container is full, the initial solidified wax has re-melted. Please note–the temperature should not be so high that the liquid wax sits more than 30 minutes before starting to solidify. Higher temperatures can also damage the plastic clamshell, if using.
- Depending on the size and style of your mold a second pour may be required to have a smooth top/bottom. If the candle has sunk down after the initial pour has set, then ensure there are no air pockets, heat up your wax again to approximately 5 degrees higher than your initial pour and do a second top up pour.
Tart/Melt Cooling: Cool undisturbed melts at an ambient temperature of 70° F (21.1°C). The molds should be about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) apart to allow air circulation for even cooling. Wax Melts should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test melting.
Storage: Packaged: Due to its low melt point it is important to keep wax stored in a cool dry location away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture.
