Introducing our EcoSystem 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:
Woodwicks - 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 that this is a plant based wax and has been working well with my candles. I understand there is a high demand for wax at the moment but the rapid price inflation is disappointing, I run a small business and unfortunately cannot use this wax anymore as it is too expensive.
I love the wax, built my small business around it due to it having great sustainability etc. Sadly I have to find an alternative now as the near 50% increase to the price now makes its unsuitable for my small business.
I like the wax and the whole plant based, clean burn idea etc. The wax does take some time getting used to as the caving can be more extreme than those in paraffin wax candles. The surface doesn't set as nicely as it does with paraffin wax, but a dash on top with the heat gun has it looking pretty clean. Giving this 3 stars as the price has nearly gone up around 50% since my last purchase only a few weeks ago As a super small scale home candle maker this means i cannot afford to buy this any longer and will have to look elsewhere for my plant wax. Disappointed to say the least
Very soft, smooth, no fragrance wax. Gives smooth tops. I like it.
