Perhaps the most commonly used wax in candle making is paraffin wax. The candles you find at your local stores are most likely made using this type of wax. Paraffin is derived from petroleum, which explains why it’s not a popular choice for those who want to keep their homes more environment-friendly.

Many would argue that the best material is beeswax which is considered as the oldest type of wax used to make candles. Beeswax is the result of the honey-making process of bees. It’s well-loved for its sweet and pleasant fragrance. 

Soy wax is also a popular type of wax used in candle making. Soy wax can be made purely out of soybean oil but there are certain types of soy wax that contain other types of vegetable oils.

These are just some of the most commonly used materials in candle making. It’s very common to find mixes of two or three types of wax in candles sold today. Spry Candles UK is where you can buy scented candles in London. You get the assurance that their candles are made using the best of London’s naturally produced materials.
