Too much stearic

Recommended Posts

I recently got a couple different types of soy container waxes to try out. One of the waxes said to not add stearic, which I later realized after I had already added 2%. The candles that I've made with that batch are frosting quite heavily. Does anyone have any advice as to how to reverse the effects of stearic? It's only about 5 lbs of wax, but that is still more than I want to waste.

Thank you in advance!

I don't think there is anything to reverse the effect of stearic as such. I would add 50% paraffin to it and make votives or 30% and make uncolored wax melts so at least it isn't a total waste. But use for containers, don't think so... sorry, it is miserable when things like that happen!
