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:


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.

RCX wax

Very quick melting & easy to use

Pleased with my purchase

I am very new to candle making and a tub of this wax was included in the candle making kit I bought to start with. It seems to melt easily and doesn’t smell unpleasant, in fact it doesn’t smell of anything at all which I think is really nice, I imagined candle wax would be greasy and not very nice smelling, but I was completely wrong. I have just bought 5 tubs to keep me going.

I love this wax almost gave up with candles having tried C3, kerasoy and 464 Struggled a little with the tops but really helpful advice in the Facebook group to pour at a lower temp. Now pouring at 38 and perfect The CT and HT are amazing fills a large room - using 8% too so saving on my oils. Happy
