Grey "residue" on soy pillar candles

I have been making container candles for a couple of years now and have just decided to venture into pillars. I am using EcoSoya Pillar Blend wax with essential oils for fragrance and metal 3x3 pillar molds. It was working beautifully for the first few batches, but then, upon unmolding, I began to find a mysterious greyish residue in splotches around the outside of the candle. I found that if I rubbed hard enough it would come off (so it is only topical), but I can't figure out why it is happening. Any insight?
