If soy products are produced outside precise chilling conditions, they tend to fat bloom. Typically, a comfortable room temperature is from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit with a relative humidity of 35 to 50 percent. The pour temperature of soy wax would thus be between 150 and 170 F.
The container’s temperature should also fall within the same range as the room’s. You’ll often have wetness problems if the container is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. You will experience a greater fat bloom if the temperature is higher.
Due to the nature of soy, the fat bloom is the most difficult to correct and may result from various causes. You will get fat bloom whatever the candle cools—if it cools too quickly or slowly.
Solutions to the issues:
- Attempt to maintain a warmer pouring area.
- Warm the jars just enough to be between 70 and 80 degrees F.
- Modify the pouring temperature to account for the humidity and ambient temperature.
- During chilling, ensure at least 1 inch of space around the container.
- Countertop materials may sometimes make a difference. The worst countertops are metal ones.
Pouring Soy Wax of Different Types
464 Soy Wax
- Wax should be heated in a double boiler to 180°F–185°F. Add the color and scent, then thoroughly mix.
- Glass containers should be warmed up to between 100°F–125°F to improve side adhesion. (Optional)
- When the temperature is between 125°F–145°F, gently pour candles. Your climate may need you to experiment with pouring temperatures.
444 Soy Wax
- In a double boiler, wax should be heated to between 180°F and 185°F. Mix everything well after adding the color and scent.
- To enhance edge adherence, warm glassware jars to 100°F–125°F. (Extra)
- Pour candles slowly after lowering the temperature to between 125°F–45°F. You may have to play with pouring temps, depending on your location.
415 Soy Wax
- Wax should be heated to 180°F–185°F in a double-boiler setup. In a large mixing bowl, combine the fragrance and dye.
- To provide greater side adhesion, heat glass containers between 100°F–125°F. (Optional)
- Reduce the temperature to 90°F to 100°F before carefully pouring the candles. You could have to deal with torrential temps depending on your climate.

- In a double-boiler system, heat the wax to 180°F–185°F. Stir in the aroma and the dye completely.
- To improve side adhesion, preheat glass containers to 100°F–125°F. (Optional)
- Lower the temperature to about 140°F–160°F, then slowly pour the candles.
Recommended for all types of wax
- Soak up as much cooling time as you can. Avoid placing it in a water bath or refrigerator to hasten the chilling process.
- Depending on the dye/fragrance mix, different wicks may be required. It has been discovered that this wax works nicely with the CD and ECO wick lines.
To summarize, everything is regulated and optimized in full-scale candle factories to produce excellent candles: containers are heated to the appropriate temperature, cooling takes place at the correct temperature for the exact time, and wax mixing and pouring are done perfectly. When working with soy wax, people who make candles at home should try to get as close as possible to the same level of precision.
In other words, look around, try things out, measure them, and write down what you find until you have a method that works well and is consistent.
