Ever wondered why your tealights don't burn as well or smell as strong as professionaly produced tealights? Read on…

SASOLWAX 5203 is a hard paraffin wax with a low melt-point designed specifically for use in tea-light candles. This is a professional grade tea-light wax with a very tight congealing point and excellent scent throw.

5203 can also be used as an additive to increase the congealing point of softer waxes. 5203 does shrink, so pouring cool or remelting the surface is advisable.

Blending it with container waxes can also create excellent blends, both for tea-lights and in larger candles. SASOLWAX 5203 is supplied in pastille format.

Wick Selection: We would recommend the use of TD13, TD15 or TD17 tea-light wicks with this wax. The exact wick will depend on the fragrance used and can be ascertained through burn testing.

Fragrance: SASOLWAX 5203 has a very strong scent throw, so does not require as much oil as softer container blends. 5-7% is typical, although the wax may hold more in certain cases.

If you get mottling with this wax, try reducing the amount of fragrance, or adding the oil at a higher temperature, as mottling is typically fragrance that has not been held in the crystal structure.

Sasol wax candles

I had just about giving up candles when I decided to have one more go with sasol container wax. This wax is amazing! I have a beautiful throw. Candles are consistently even and burn beautifully. Highly recommend this for normal sized candles.

Disappointing waste of money

I decided to try the Sasol tealight wax because I wanted to use the right product for the right end result. What a disappointment. I wasted 50 tea light cups, fragrance and wicks. I ended up with crystalline tea lights that don’t burn very well at all with a scent throw that was fairly average despite trying different melt temps and different pouring temps. They look awful so I can’t sell any of them. I contacted customer services to complian and asked for advice and was told that the labs would look into it and someone would respond. I waited and waited and no response, so I’ve chased it up and still no response, not even an acknowledgement. I’m a good and frequent customer so the attitude of candle shack is very disappointing. Don’t waste your money on this product until candle shack add usage info on the product listing.

T lights

Product & service 1st class as usual. I haven’t used them yet as I am still looking for packaging. It would be helpful if packaging was stocked for these large T Lights.
