Wax FAQ

How do I know which wax to choose?

Each type of wax has properties that make it suitable for different purposes. Most of our waxes are intended to be used in container candles. One exception is our C55 wax, which is specifically formulated for wax tarts. Please review the description on the product page for more detailed information on each type of wax. 

Where can I find instructions for using my wax?

We provide instructions and basic usage guidelines on each wax product page. Please view our wax pages for more information.

What type of wicks work with your wax?

We carry a wide selection of candle wicks for you to choose from. For more information on choosing a candle wick that will perform well, review our Wick FAQ or visit the Candle Making section on our blog, which is full of helpful resources.

Is your wax skin safe? Can I use it for massage purposes?

Because of additional regulations on products made for body use, our wax is sold for candle making only. As an exception, our Beeswax is safe to use in skincare formulations such as lotion and lip balm.

Do you have a list of wax ingredients or wax certificates?

All of our waxes are vegan with the exception of beeswax. None of our wax products are tested on animals. Our wax is manufactured in the U.S. by small, custom wax blenders. Because wax blends are proprietary, information is not provided on the specific ingredients and additives, nor is information provided on percentages of different ingredients used. Our manufacturers assure us that the ingredients – including palm oil – are responsibly and sustainably sourced; however, certifications and country of origin statements are not provided.
