Melting:

Heat to a temperature of 71-93C (160-200F).  Do not heat above 93.3C (200F).  If the wax is held at a high temperature for long periods of time, it will discolour.  Stir regularly to prevent localised 'hot spots'  and always use a thermometer.  Never leave you heated wax unattended.

Adding Fragrance And Dye:

The fragrance and dye should be added to the wax after it has completely melted.  Stir thoroughly to ensure even distribution throughout the wax.  NB: fragrance is generally added just prior to pouring, to ensure that the top notes of the fragrance don't evaporate off before the candle is poured.  This wax works well with powdered or liquid dyes.  Recommended fragrance load is 6% by weight.  7-10% can be achieved using additives.

Pouring:

Reduce the heat of the wax and allow to cool to a temperature of approx 49-73C  (120-165F).  This will reduce cracking and discolouration of the wax after it has cooled.  The pour temperature should be matched to the ambient room temperature.  ie: Use the lower pour temperature if the room is 16-21C (60-70F) and the higher pour temperature if the room is 26-32C  (80-90F).  Keeping the pour temperature only a little above room temperature 

Containers:

Ensure that the containers are either at, or slightly above room temperature when you pour,  this will help tospeed up the cure time and help with adhesion.

Before Burning:

The candle should be allowed to cool and cure for at least 12 hours before burning, to allow the crystals to completely form and give a nice smooth surface.

NB:  Candles over 8.5cm (3.5 inches) in diameter may need to be double wicked to reach a full melt pool.
In our tests, we found this wax works well with the ECO series of wicks.
