Review of Quantum Soy Waxes by EcoSoya Brands, LLC - UPDATED 8/1/2017
This review was originally posted on July 13. We have some updates based on some testing that we had a few of our customers do. Updated content is preceded by asterisks.
Cierra Candles recently received samples of the newly developed Quantum soy waxes. There are three waxes that can be used for candle applications and one wax that can also be used for bath and body products as it has been dermatology tested. All waxes come in pastille/pearl form which is easy to scoop and weigh. Case weight is 45 pounds. All three waxes have a maximum fragrance load of 18%.
Here’s our review of the new products.
Make Bath Bombs:
1. Add your baking soda, citric acid, and any salts to a bowl and whisk together well. Bure sure to break up any clumps. Additives can also be added at this stage.
2. Once your dry ingredients are well mixed and no clumps are remaining, add your fragrance oil. Whisk well and distribute the fragrance as much as possible. It will be clumpy, so you need to just keep whisking.
Make Aroma Beads:
Fill your glass jar with aroma beads, leave some room at the top. Add your fragrance oil – you can use 1 – 2 oz of fragrance per pound of aroma beads. It will depend on the fragrance. Thicker, more viscous fragrances take longer to absorb. If you would like to add color, do so, but go easy! It only takes a drop. Be sure to use liquid candle dye – water based dyes and chips will not work. Cover your jar with a lid and shake well to distribute all of the oil through the aroma beads. Allow fragrance to soak into the beads. This can take anywhere from 24 hours to a week or so, depending on the thickness of the fragrance oil. Shake your jar periodically to ensure complete mixing. When your beads are completely dry, they are ready for use. If you can’t get them to dry, you make need to add some more beads to soak up the oil. Just add more, shake well and allow to continue drying.
