Candle Making Guide: Scoopable Wax

Scoopable wax is similar to a wax tart/melt however instead of being stand-alone the wax is poured directly into a container such as a jar or tin. The end user is then able to scoop out the required amount of scented wax and place directly into their wax melt burners. Scoopable wax is becoming more common for candle makers as the usual process of removing tarts from the mould, and packaging them, is no longer required! Scoopable wax also allows the end user to decide how much wax they’d like to use and is ideal for irregular shaped burners. Due to the wax needing to be scooped out by the consumer, a much softer wax combination is required. This wax combination is 100% natural too!

Bipol-X allows you to add more fragrance.When used correctly, Bipol-X allows you to triple scent your candles – meaning you can add up to 30% fragrance oil!

Bipol-X works by modifying the crystal structure of wax to prevent the leaching of fragrance oils from the wax. The additive will absorb the fragrance keeping the finished candle dry and eliminating sweating.

Typically, most candle waxes can hold a 10% fragrance load. If you were to use more than this percentage the fragrance oil will begin to ‘sweat’ out of the candle.

Pouring temperature: Dependent upon the wax you are using Bipol-X with.
