No additives are required.
If you wish to stiffen the wax, yet keep it all natural, we suggest blending with an all natural soy wax. You could start low, at 5% soy, and see how you like the results, and adjust as needed until you reach your desired candle performance.
As with all natural products, blends can vary slightly from batch to batch.
Heat to 200-210º F, remove from heat source. Add fragrance oil and dye, blend and stir for 30 seconds while cooling. Pour at 200º F for best results. For consistently smooth results, it is recommended to pour hot between190-200º F for a slower cooling rate, which will result in consistently smoother looking candles and minimize any blooming. Maximum fragrance load is 8%, but higher fragrance loads should be tested per fragrance.
For thick glass and or cooler room temperatures below 65ºF, pre-heating the glass is recommended and pour at 200º F.
