1. Environmentally friendly: Rapeseed wax is a natural and renewable product, as it is extracted from rapeseed plants. It has a lower impact on the environment than petroleum-based waxes such as paraffin. But also in comparison to soy and beeswax.
2. Clean Burn: Canola wax has a reputation for producing a cleaner and less toxic burn. It emits less soot and does not produce harmful chemicals such as benzene during burning, which improves the air quality in your home.
3. Longer burning time: Rapeseed wax generally has a longer burning time than paraffin candles. This means you can enjoy a single candle for longer before it burns out.
Disadvantages of rapeseed wax
1. Softer Texture: Canola wax tends to be softer than paraffin, which can make candles made from canola wax more vulnerable to denting or deformation at high temperatures. Caution should be taken when handling and storing rapeseed wax candles.
2. Limited odor carrier: Compared to paraffin, canola wax may have less ability to retain odors. This can result in a more subtle scent release in rapeseed wax candles.
3. Higher price: Due to the production process and limited availability, rapeseed wax can be more expensive than paraffin. This can result in higher prices for canola wax candles compared to traditional candles.
