Nature Wax C-3 is a 100% soy wax. C-3  has a 125 - 130F meltpoint and should be used for container candles. Super clean burning, very low shrinkage. Comes in easy-to-measure flake.

Nature Wax C-3 has good adhesion to containers, which can be improved,especially during winter months by heating jars to 70F. C-3 has an exceptional scent throw with both fragrances and essential oils and a creamy white appearance with some potential to bloom (white frosting) when using dyes. Tops may be uneven and require heat gunning to 1/8" to be smooth. This can be avoided by pouring wax at a higher temperature ~160F. Wax may also show signs of air bubbles. These can be avoided by minimizing agitation (don't stir too much) and heating the wax to 185F. NatureWax® C-3 is made from pure 100% soybeans. Candles made with C-3 have a soft creamy appearance and ships well in all climates.

Instructions:

Heat soy wax to 185F until wax is fully melted, stirring gently periodically. Be sure you do not heat your wax too high, it can cause yellowing after cooling. Nature Wax recommends allowing wax to cool until around 165 F and adding fragrance oil and color.  Stir until thoroughly mixed.  They then recommend allowing soy wax to cool to ~160F and pouring. This is recommended to give the best glass adhesion, fewer bubbles and smoother tops. 

However, in our experience allowing the wax to cool to ~125F and adding fragrance, then poouring gave excellent scent throw results. The tops will usually need to be heat gunned if you do this. Additives are not recommended for this wax, except for the UV Inhibitor, to help colorfastness.

We recommend you use HTP wicks with this wax for optimal results. If you are using our fragrances, you can use up to 5 - 10% fragrance load or 1 oz - 1-1/2 oz of fragrance per pound of wax, which works out to be 2 - 3 T of fragrance per pound.

We also recommend you upsize your HTP wicks to the next size. So, for instance, if your jar is 3" in diameter, chose a wick for a 3 1/2" container.  This wax tends to burn slowly so a stronger wick is required to achieve full melting pool.

This wax can be used in lotion bars and massage oils, if skin safe fragrances or essential oils are used.

For those of you who were members of CandleWealth, this appears to have been the original wax they started with. The eventually went to the C-1 version which was far more problematic. The C-3 version has better glass adhesion and less issue with frosting.

Rating SO FAR, SO GOOD
 
I'm using this wax for the first time to make container candles in jars. I've been making this type of candle for 2 years now. I've switched between waxes, generally using GOLDEN BRAND or the ECOSOYA ADVANCED. The GOLDEN BRAND has great scent throw, but I've never gotten the nice, smooth, opaque candles that I'm getting with this wax. ECOSOYA scent throw is just not up to my standards. NatureWax C-3 Premium just might be my answer.

I love this wax! Although it doesn't make the most perfect looking candles, the scent throw can't be beat. My candles come out better than with Golden Brand and I don't have to heat gun the tops as often, but there are still some wet spots. However, the candles burn very, very clean and the scent throw is awesome!
