This is one pound of our low temp wax, NO WICK. You can heat it in the microwave or simmer in a pot of water or chaffing dish. You can heat and pour directly from the package or empty it to a double boiler and warm it that way. Stir with a spoon or your finger. It may be a little too warm when first taken out of microwave or water. Do not boil or put in oven. This wax is a mixture of paraffin, soy, and beeswax. Contains no paraben. We made 100 recipes to find what we wanted that impressed all of our testers. A melting point of 118 degrees. As with all dyes staining may occur on fabric. Our wax does break down with Dawn dish soap. Enjoy!!!
