What is the best wax for candles?

    If you’re referring to the most eco-friendly  wax, then candles made with pure beeswax and vegetable-based oil are the bets for the environment. As for longest lasting candles, you’ll want to lift up the candle and see how heavy it is. If it seems lighter than it should be, then that means the wax has a lot of air in it and the candle will burn faster.

    Soy candle wax can be used as an eco-friendly alternative wax for candle making if this is what you are referring to. Soy wax is made from partially hydrogenated soybean oil and was created in the early 90s by Michael Richards. This type of  wax is softer than paraffin,burns at a lower temperature, burns longer, and produces approximately 90% less soot. Making candle wax from soybeans is environmentally friendly because it is biodegradable and the candles emit less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when burned.
