Description

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:

CL10-12-14
VRL12-14
V12

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.

Eco System RCX

RCX was a new wax to try out for me, so far I have only used soy wax. I had to pay close attention to the desired temperatures, as they differ from the waxes I am used to. I overheated the first batch, but from the first impression it didn’t do much harm to the appearance. I’ll have to see whether it affects the burn of the candle. I am looking into the RCX as a possible alternative if the 464 Golden Wax keeps being difficult to obtain, but also to see if the HT can he improved with a different wax for some oils. So far I am very happy with the RCX.

Enjoy working with Rcx wax

Very simple to use, enjoyed working with this wax. I did however need to refill the containers for a smooth finish. Average scent throw using high flashpoint essential oils only. Will keep testing fragrances using this RCX wax
