Lunamosity Candles Buying Guides
My candle and wax melt buying guides provide you with details to help you choose the right candles or wax melts for you, whether that's through L.C or another small business.
There are different types ox wax used in candles and wax melts. Below I provide a few variety's and back information, to help you choose what wax you want in your candles and wax melts.
SOY WAX (This is the wax I currently use in my candles and wax melts)
There are certain "green" advantages to this wax. The wax burns slower, meaning your candles last longer and depending on the type used, can hold fragrance extremely well, meaning you get a beautiful fragrance throw. All candles will emit some soot when burning, however soy wax emits less, when your wick is also trimmed to the right level before burning.
This wax is a hydrocarbon, deriving from petroleum, starting as a crude oil.
This is one of the easiest waxes to uses in candles and tends to be a cheaper option. Candles tend to burn quicker.
Has the highest melting point and burns for longer, but can be the most expensive to use. This wax will also emit less soot and is one of the oldest forms of wax used for candles.
Has a naturally sweet aroma and releases negative eons.
A very good option for candle making, releasing little to not soot (if the candle is cared for properly).
Sustainable and provides a good burn time and scent throw.
There are so many different types of candles out there, pillar, tealight, container, taper and votive. Whats right for you?
Personally, I would go a type based on the surroundings I intend to put the candle in.
If it's a dining room table, I would opt for Taper, votive and tealight, helping to create a beautiful tablescape.
If it's the bathroom and bedroom, I tend to go for a container, votive or tealight candle.
You can really up your interior with a candle, from pretty containers and labels, to quirky pillar candles with different shapes (I have seen some bum shaped ones going around! if that's your sort of thing).
Still not sure what to buy, have a scroll through Pinterest for inspiration, or treat yourself to a candle of each type and see what works best for you.
You can buy odorless candles, and use them just for the ambiance (i mainly do this with pillar candles) but for the majority, the fragrance is the fun part!
