Do you love candles? I do. In fact, candles are almost always incorporated in different vignettes that I create in our entire home. The Diptyque brand is one of my favorites. I love this scent or I should say, I love almost all of their scented candles.
Not all candles are created equal, I know, as they are also made of different types of wax. Does the type of wax matters? Experts say, it does! So, let me decode the different types of wax.
Paraffin wax is most commonly used thus, it is the least expensive. This wax is typically used for pillar candles( the wide and tall type) because it holds and keeps it shape well. Soy and palm wax on the other hand, are normally used on candles in jars. The label will indicate this type of wax, which is vegetable wax. If your candle is made of beeswax, this burns faster because it contains less wax. It is delicate thus, it is recommended that this type of candle is wrapped properly before storage and when transported.
