Polyethylene wax is crucial in making candles. If you are planning to sell your candles in the market then wax is very important. There are different types of wax that can be used for candles like soy, gel and paraffin or even beeswax. Other than knowing these details it is also important to know the right type of wick that should be used in order to make a candle. There are different kinds of wicks such as braided, lead free and cotton wick.
paraffin wax – is a petroleum based wax that is mainly used to make candles. It is very easy to work with and has a low melting point which makes it ideal for candle making supplies such as candle molds, wicks and even the scent. However, it emits toxic fumes when burned so many people prefer using soy wax instead because of its non-toxic
soy wax – made from soybeans, which makes it slow burning and biodegradable. It emits less toxic fumes when burned compared to paraffin wax especially for those who are very sensitive.
beeswax – is used generally in making taper candles because of its thick consistency. Beeswax candles burn brighter compared to other types of candles like paraffin and soy wax. It also emits a subtle scent when burned
fragrance oils – are available in different scents and aromas which makes it easy to mix with wax. When combined, this mixture can create interesting combinations of scent that can be used for candles
wax paper – is used when making votive candles. This wax paper ensures the candle does not melt into the jar where it is intended to be placed in. It is best to use a double sided tape or Glue to keep it in place.
gel wax – is composed of natural carnauba and palm which makes it very similar to paraffin but has no additives. It emits less toxic fumes when burned, however the scent of gel wax is not as strong as paraffin

metal wick clips – are made from heavy duty metal that is used to keep the wick in place. It creates less mess when pouring melted wax into a mold
wick stickers – it is made from a special high temperature resistant film that prevents the wick from moving or curling when pouring hot wax into candle molds. These stickers keep the wick in place and straight, which means the candle will burn evenly
