Rapeseed wax is a plant-based wax that is produced from the seeds of the rapeseed plant. It is becoming a popular alternative to soy wax for making candles because it offers a number of benefits over soy wax:

  1. Longer burning time: Rapeseed wax has a higher melting point than soy wax, which means that it burns at a higher temperature and for a longer period of time. This can make it a more cost-effective option for consumers.
  2. Cleaner burn: Rapeseed wax produces less soot than soy wax, which means that it doesn’t leave black residue on the sides of the candle jar or the surrounding area. This makes it a more eco-friendly option for the environment.
  3. Better fragrance throw: Rapeseed wax has a higher scent throw than soy wax, which means that it releases more fragrance when it burns. This can make scented candles made with rapeseed wax more fragrant and aromatic than those made with soy wax.
  4. Sustainability: Rapeseed wax is produced from crops grown in Europe, this makes it a more sustainable and eco-friendly option for the European market.
  5. Allergen-free: As rapeseed wax does not come from a tree nut or legume, it does not have any of the allergen concerns associated with soy wax.

Please keep in mind that this is just a general comparison, and the wax that is right for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences, and it’s always good to test different waxes and see which one performs better for your specific candles.
