An 800g sample tub of our Rapeseed & Coconut (RCX) natural wax blend.  This wax is blended in Europe exclusively for Candle Shack and is made from rapeseed oil and coconut oil and nothing else.  It is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm, beeswax and synthetic additives.

 

The wax has a melt point of around 40 Deg C and is firm to the touch.  Maximum scent load varies between 8% and 10% depending on the oil.

Wicking is fairly easy, with CL wicks being the first choice, although many other wick families may also work, including V, VRL and Stabilo.  

Here are some recommendations for 30cl vessels:

CL10-12-14
VRL12-14
V12

Woodwicks for 30cl - LA3 & LB3

The wax can be heated to and poured at 40-70 Deg C into ambient glassware (20-30 Deg.C ideally).  Depending on the fragrance and conditions, a surface re-melt may be required to get a smooth finish. You can also pour this wax quite cool, anywhere from 38c upwards.

In the laboratory, we heat RCX to 60 Deg.C and pour at around 50 deg.C, although you can alter this to suit your local environment.

Love this wax

I really liked this wax and I love the idea of no palm oil or soy, as these are two things I want to avoid in my candles. It looks great and sets well, but I have found it does crack a little bit. I think this would be overcome though by using frosted or coloured glass. They have set fine on top, much the same as soy does. It has pulled away from the wick a little, but nothing a top up pour wouldn't fix. I am yet to burn them as they are still curing, but I'm excited to try them out! I have had issues with adhesion, but I think this would be helped if I had been able to warm my containers (but my oven only has two settings so it's hot or almost cold...). They seem to have retained fragrance really well, and I can smell them even as they sit. I only used 8% fragrance which is plenty with this wax. This wax does come apart easier than the melt blend, however again, I would suggest offering it in smaller bits as it is still a hazard to try and break up. I also found it a little messier than soy wax to clean up because it is an oilier texture, but that is a really small issue.
