Wax

Sort by:

We stock a variety of different candle making waxes, including: soy wax, rapeseed wax and paraffin wax.  Candle waxes are usually broken down into two main categories - vegetable (or natural) waxes and mineral (or parrafin) waxes.  Vegetable waxes benefit from being renewable and thus are very marketable, given their eco-friendly credentials.  Mineral waxes tend to be easier to use and often provide better scent throw than vegetable waxes, but don't have the same eco credentials.

We often get asked which wax is the 'best', but there is no easy answer to that question.  Vegetable and mineral wax candles will both burn cleanly if wicked correctly, so the trade-off tends to be: paraffin scent throw vs. natural wax marketing benefit.
