The Big Five Healthy Waxes
We will go into more depth on each of these waxes at the links below. The first wax is the natural soy wax candles, then the scented beeswax candles, vegetable wax, palm oil wax, and bayberry wax.
You have to be very careful if you want to purchase an all natural wax candle.
If it doesn't say all natural wax, 100% soy wax, natural wax blend, soy/veggie wax blend, 100% bayberry, 100% palm wax or oil or 100% beeswax candle you are more than likely not getting an all natural wax candle.
You will never be fooled again!
