About this Product

Nature Wax C-3 is a 100% soy wax. C-3  has a 125 - 130°F 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 70°F. 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 ~160°F. 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 185°F. 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.


Heat soy wax to 185°F until wax is fully melted, stirring gently periodically. Be sure you do not heat your wax too high, it can cause yellowing after cooling. Add fragrance oil and color.  Stir very gently for two minutes.  Allow soy wax to cool to ~160°F and pour. This is recommended to give the best glass adhesion, fewer bubbles and smoother tops. 

     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.

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.

My Favorite Soy Wax
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!

Love this wax!
I started out using GB 464 and was not happy with the poor glass adhesion and sink holes, so I switched to Ecosoya Advanced wax...had absolute zero scent throw. After reading great reviews on this wax, I decided to purchase a small bag and wow, I am so happy with the results. This is the best soy wax I have tried. Excellent cold and hot scent throw, smooth tops, etc. Will only be buying this wax from now on!

Questions and Answers

Q: How do I stop this wax from having air bubbles in it? I let the wax melt to 185, I don't stir but gradually break up the wax chunks. I let it cool to proper temp, pour in fragrance and slowly stir. I then slowly pour into slightly heated candle jars. I'm testing two candles now with this wax, one poured at 160 and the other with the temp you recommend and both have air bubbles. I actually liked the pouring temps that was suggested by cierracandles, it gave the candle better appearance. Any suggestions on how to prevent the air bubbles? Thanks!
Asked by: Chris - 3/10/2016
A: From CierraCandles: We've had other customers comment on this issue, but haven't experienced it ourselves. We use a paint stick to stir periodically and maybe since there isn't much surface area, that helps. You don't want to over stir - that will cause air - however, I believe you should be stirring some, as this does help release air that may be trapped in the wax molecules. It will also ensure the wax heats more evenly. I would use either a slotted spoon - like the kind you use with a fryer, or paint stick. We've had good luck with both. Hope that helps!

A: Try to pour wax slowly. I think it's also an important part to avoid air bubbles. Hope you'll get good ones too.

Q: Will this wax make good tarts?
Asked by: Raine - 6/12/2017
A: Hi Raine,

This wax is too soft for wax melts. Some of our customers have told us that they have had success in mixing this with beeswax for wax melts, but on its' own it is too soft a wax.
