About Candle Wax

Now that your candles have all burnt out, you are considering making your own replacements, which means that you need some candle wax. By making your own candles, you get to choose the scent as well as the type of candles to make. Do you want the traditional stick candle or is there a lovely jar that you want to turn into a candle? Either way, you must first select the type of wax to use and you have several options available to you on eBay. Turn any old mason jar, vase, or even a cup into a candle with soy wax. It is a natural product with a low melting point so it works well in containers, but not by itself. Paraffin wax is the sturdiest and it has a high melting point so you can form it into shapes. To make a floating candle with a container, use gel wax because it never solidifies even when cold. Pick up some candle making supplies and start decorating your home.
