NatureWax C-3 soy wax from Cargill is an all-natural soy wax blend that is well known for excellent jar adhesion (minimal wet spots), minimal frosting, and excellent scent throw. We have found that NatureWax C-3 produces the best aesthetic candles among the various soy waxes we have tested/carry and is very easy to work with.

- Pouring temperatures should typically be around 120° to 165°, though experimentation is recommended to determine optimal pouring temperature
