Scented Candles

Scented candles are those candles that have been infused with some synthetic fragrance or with natural fragrance oil. Fragrances can vary depending on choice but popular fragrances include lavender, lemon and orange. Scented candles are sometimes sold in containers with holes made in them to allow the scent to slowly diffuse around the area where they are lit.

Scented candles are different from flame diffusers as they entire candle burns out while producing the scent. Flame diffusers use a flame to heat up oil which evaporates to give its aroma. Aromatherapy candles are available at health stores and are increasingly popular. It is preferable to select a candle that has natural oils in it as the beneficial effect of the aroma is greater when it is naturally sourced.

PalmWax

Another kind of wax that one can use in candle making is palm wax. Palm wax is the wax that is extracted off the leaves of palm trees that are found in tropical countries, particularly around South America. This wax can be collected and shaped into a candle. Another variety of palm wax comes directly from the coconut and this is beneficial as it does not harm the tree in any way. Palm wax is a natural substance and is therefore fully bio-degradable. This makes it an environmentally friendly type of wax. Studies also suggest that palm wax is healthier when used in candles if compared with regular paraffin wax.
