The Benefits of Different Candle Waxes for Your Applications

No matter your specific needs, you’ll find that either candle wax, natural wax, microcrystalline wax or paraffin wax will benefit your candle application in various ways.

Candle Wax

Both our paraffin-based and all-natural candle waxes are formulated for a high fragrance load. These candle waxes come in a container, pillar, votive and melt blend to easily work with whatever design you have in mind. Regardless of the type or the blend, our candle waxes deliver a smooth, creamy look once finished.

Natural Wax

Our natural or “green” wax is made from natural sources ranging from insects to animals. Depending on the type and how it’s produced, the color can range from white to off white as well as light yellow to amber. While natural waxes don’t hold as much scent as other waxes, they deliver a very soft, pliable and consistent finished product.

Microcrystalline Wax

Microcrystalline wax comes in both a soft, flexible texture as well as a very hard texture. The soft texture works well in pillar candles, where you want the layers to stick to the walls in an aesthetically pleasing way. The hard texture works well for tapers and overdrip pillars that don’t have the additional support from a container to keep the finished candle upright. This wax also comes in shades ranging from dark brown to white.

Paraffin Wax

Paraffin wax is one of the most common and inexpensive waxes used for candlemaking. Depending on the type of paraffin wax, it can be either soft or solid. It holds fragrance well and is extremely versatile. Whether you use it for votives or tealights, this wax offers a wide range of possibilities.

Different Applications of Candle Wax

When manufacturing candles, there are a few factors that your business needs to take into consideration before choosing a wax: the type of candle, the type of wick, the finished color and texture, the burn quality and the container you plan on pouring it into.

Determining these factors helps you narrow down your options and choose the best wax for your application. Whether you are manufacturing seasonal scents or simple taper candles, choosing the right wax will help you create a sturdy shape and allow for the appropriate amount of fragrance.
