NatureWax vegetable wax applications

Church lights: Also Church Lightsknown as 'Grave lights,' our NatureWax vegetable waxes are well suited to the production process, and to the long burn-time requirements of this candle type. The waxes can be blended with soft paraffin grades; for a fully vegetable-based candle, the 635-41 grade is recommended.

Getting consistently great results from your vegetable wax

There are many advantages to using vegetable wax in the place of paraffin. If you’re new to vegetable waxes, they generally require some modification to candle production processes originally designed for paraffin waxes, but don’t worry, we have compiled a few tips, tricks, and a little science to help get consistent results and the most out of NatureWax candle wax.

Where to buy your wax

If you need recommendations on which wax to use, availability in your part of the world or need help a little help pouring the perfect candle, our global network of NatureWax distributors is here to help. You’ll be able to find a distributor who can help here.
