Nature Wax C-3 is a 100% soy wax which is ideal for container candles. Super clean burning, very low shrinkage. Comes in easy-to-measure flake.
Nature Wax C-3 has good adhesion to containers, which can be improved,especially during winter months by pre-heating jars. C-3 has an exceptional scent throw with both fragrances and essential oils and a creamy white appearance with some potential to bloom (white frosting) when using dyes. Candles made with C-3 have a soft creamy appearance. C-3 Wax has a maximum fragrance load of ~7-8%.
Wicking: We recommend the use of our CL or Stabilo wicks. Woodwicks also work well in C3 wax. The table below may help to get you started and is for guidance only:
75mm Diameter: CL17/18 or Stabilo 18
70mm Diameter: CL16 or Stabilo 16
65mm Diameter: CL14 or Stabilo 14

As ever, if you have had success with other wicks, please let us know and we will add to the table.
