Which EcoSoya wax is best for container candles

Container candles can be poured into glass jars, tins, vases, and even some ceramic holders. The best part is that most of the time these containers can be reused for any number of purposes, including for more candles. Many people prefer container candles because the stylish and contemporary options on the market add to their home décor.

For soy wax users, it’s important to have a wax that will work well with your containers. Our EcoSoya CB-135, CB-Advanced Soy, and CB-Xcel soy waxes are all carefully engineered for use with container candles. Any one of these choices will make beautiful container candles with consistent scent throw and performance. With EcoSoya waxes, you can use containers in all different shapes and sizes to express your creativity.

Which EcoSoya Wax is the Best Soy Wax for Container Candles?

Depending on what look you want for your container candles, you can choose an EcoSoya soy wax that’s designed to adhere to containers, or one that’s designed to pull away from the sides. CB-135 and CB-XceL are designed to adhere, while CB-Advanced Soy is designed to pull away.

Using our EcoSoya soy waxes for container candles can also benefit your burn time and scent throw. As a general rule, container candles made with our CB waxes and appropriate wick choices achieve a full burn pool of 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep in about the same number of hours as the number of inches in the diameter of the container. For example, a container candle with a 3 inch diameter would need to burn for 3 hours to attain a maximum burn pool that is 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.

One more tip for container candles: remember to secure the wick before you pour the soy wax. Please see our Knowledge Database for pour instructions and more information on how to wick a container candle.

Are you more interested in a pillar candle, or molding your own creative design, than pouring soy wax into a container? The EcoSoya Pillar Blend is self-releasing, so it is perfect for all molded candles, including pillars, votives, tarts, and novelty candles.
