Paraffin Wax comes in different melting points. The type of candle you are making will determine which melting point to buy.

Paraffin is a petroleum by-product. It contains oil. The lower the melting temperature of the paraffin, the more oil content and the slower the burning. You want slow burning wax for container candles, and faster burning wax for moulded free-standing candles. Use the fastest burning wax for taper candles.
