Types of Candle Wax

Types of Candle Wax

Candle wax comes in three varieties: Gel, soy or traditional white paraffin and vegetable blend wax. All of our waxes throw scent very well. Whether you are making decorative scented candles or preparing for the next storm that takes your power out, there is an option available that will fit your needs perfectly.

Soy Wax

Soy wax is an all-natural option that is very easy to work with. You will need to use soy candle wax with wicks designed for use with this particular type of wax for the best results. You can scent or dye soy wax very easily by combining the additives with the wax directly after melting. Soy wax can hold a higher percentage of scent than traditional paraffin and has the advantage of being able to throw scent extremely well. Soy wax can be used to make both traditional candles and scented tarts.

Paraffin Vegetable Blend

One of the draws of traditional paraffin and vegetable blend candle wax is that it is very easy to work with and is very affordable. Our paraffin wax can be ordered in a variety of quantities, from ten pounds to a full barrel. You should use wicks that are designed for paraffin candle wax, otherwise this is a versatile option that can be used in many different ways. You can dye and scent our paraffin wax to create wonderfully scented candles for gifts or you can build a supply of emergency candles for a very low price using paraffin and vegetable blend wax.

Gel Wax

Gel wax is clear once it has been melted and poured, even when you dye the gel. Gel wax, like paraffin and soy, is a melt and pour wax that is very simple to use. You can choose between high, medium and low density gel depending on your personal needs. Gel candle wax can be dyed and scented to create a truly personal gift or decorative item for your home. Don’t forget to stock up on pre-tabbed wicks, scents and dyes when purchasing our high quality wax so that you can create beautiful candles quickly.
