What wax can be used when making Candles or Wax Melts
Wax is an important part of candle and wax melt making. There are many different types of wax that can be used for making candles and wax melts. The type of wax you choose will depend on your budget, the type of product you want to make and any allergies you have to certain ingredients in the waxes. Here are some popular types:
Natural Soy Wax
Soy wax is a natural wax produced from soy beans. It's also a renewable resource and biodegradable, making it a great choice for candlemakers. Soy wax burns cleaner than other types of candles, which means you can use it around kids and pets without worry. Soy wick is soft, pliable and easy to work with—you'll have no trouble shaping your candles into any design you want!
Soy wax is naturally white, which means it won't yellow over time like paraffin wax. It also has a very low melting point and is highly flammable, making it perfect for candles with a high fragrance load. Soy candles burn cleaner than paraffin candles and give off less soot—a big plus when you're dealing with allergy sufferers!

Beeswax is a natural wax that comes from the honeycomb of bees. It can be used in candles, wax melts and other similar products.
Beeswax has several advantages over other types of waxes:
It can be used locally because it's renewable and doesn't require any special equipment like centrifuges or heating units.
It has a low melting point, making it easy to work with (no need for heaters).
Coconut wax is a great alternative to beeswax. It is renewable, sustainable and non-toxic. Coconut wax has a low melting point and burns at a lower temperature than other types of waxes such as soy or paraffin. Because it contains no animal products, coconut wax can be used in candles that are vegan or vegetarian friendly!
Palm wax is a natural, renewable and sustainable product. Palm oil is extracted from the fruit of the palm tree, which grows naturally in Malaysia, Indonesia and West Africa.
The benefits of palm wax are that it's free from chemicals or additives and can be used to make candles that burn longer with less waste. It's also eco-friendly because it doesn't require fossil fuels to process into liquid form—you can use your own solar power plant!
However, there are some disadvantages: With its low melting point (around 80 degrees Celsius), palm wax may not be suitable for high heat environments such as found inside homes in colder climates where temperatures drop below freezing levels during winter months (or even summer ones). Additionally this type of candle could get damaged easily by windy conditions at higher altitudes where winds tend not only blow but also change direction frequently without warning; so caution should be exercised when using this type outdoors during inclement weather conditions like snowstorms or hurricanes when possible."
Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product that’s used to create candles and other candle making products. It is the most commonly used wax for candle making, because it has many advantages over other types of waxes:
It's cheap and easy to find at your local grocery store or supermarket.
It burns cleanly and doesn't produce smokey fumes when burned in a candle.
Paraffin can be melted at low temperatures (below 300°F), which makes it easier for you as an amateur candle maker to melt down your wicks, melts and/or melts your wax before dipping them into liquid paraffin.

Candle making is a fun hobby that you can enjoy with your friends, family members and even strangers! The process of creating these fragrant candles is quite simple; all you need to do is melt the right amount of ingredients together in order to create your unique blend. The most important thing when deciding on what type of wax you want to use for your project is finding one with high melting point so that it won't burn easily once lit up during its time being burned in flame (this will also help prevent it from going out too soon).
