“Love this thing!!! I use it to warm my soaping oils and it's marvelous. I have it wrapped around my buckets and at around $100 it's way more cost effective than using the water heated tanks (which are like $800). I will be buying more of these for my additional pails.”

Melting Wax & Glycerin

Soap making and candle making are ancient practices. The methods in which the glycerin or wax is heated into a useable form by the artisan are as old as the art forms themselves. Double boilers on the stove top, hot plates, and microwaves are the old standby methods, each complete with an equal list of pros and cons.

Melting Wax for Candle Making

Whether beeswax, soy, paraffin, or palm wax, the melting properties are similar. Rule number one for melting any type of wax is, never leave it unattended during the heating process. The nature of solid wax is that it liquefies slowly, but then the temperature rises quite rapidly. Certain types of wax can actually give off flammable vapors and even combust if the temperature reaches the flash point. Furthermore, it can quickly scorch and become unusable. As a general rule of thumb, wax should never be heated above 250F.

Melting Glycerin for Soap & Cosmetics

Glycerin is the most common base for melting and pour soaps. It is similar in feel and nature to wax, though with a lower melting point than wax (approximately 65-70F). Rule number one still applies here- don’t leave it unattended. Glycerin can scorch and become unusable in a hurry if not supervised.
