Making F Wax Candles

Of all the natural waxes, the one that seems to be getting the most attention is the F pillar wax.

This unique wax creates a candle that cannot be duplicated using any other wax and each and every candle is a creation itself. Best of all this wax is very easy to use.

Melt the desired amount of the F wax to between 140-160 degrees F and add your color and fragrance. This wax will hold between 4% and 6% fragrance. Preheat the desired mold to 140 degrees F. Aluminum molds seem to work best with this wax. Pour the wax into the mold and as the wax begins to solidify re-pour at about 20 degrees F above your initial pouring temperature. It may be necessary to poke a hole on the top surface prior to re-pouring to ensure there are no air pockets in the candle.

For best performance results during burning, it is recommended you use the RRD wicks, HTP wicks or the CD wicks. All of these wicks are available from Candlewic. (Please call for CD wicks.)
