We offer premium paraffin waxes formulated for container, pillar and votive candles. Paraffin wax is an ideal choice for highly fragranced candles with exceptional scent throw.
What is Paraffin Wax?
Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product created when crude oil is refined into gasoline. It is a white, odorless solid that is formed into 10 lb. slabs. Paraffin is the most commonly used wax for candle making.
TYPES OF PARAFFIN WAX
Low Melt Point Paraffin - paraffin with a melting point less than 130° F, this type of wax is soft and adheres well to the sides of containers. Therefore, they are best for container and tealight candles.
High Melt Point Paraffin - paraffin with a melting point greater than 130° F, this type of wax is harder and therefore provides structural rigidity for use in votive and pillar candles.
Why Use Paraffin Wax?
- Lots of information is available about candlemaking with paraffin
- Most candle fragrances and dyes were formulated for paraffin, so they work quite reliably (note: our fragance and dye also work in natural waxes)
- Consistant attractive appearance - does not frost like natural wax
