How Are Beeswax Candles Different From Paraffin Candles?

Beeswax is a natural wax, with a natural scent and yellow coloration. It produces a smokeless candle, and is often dripless (dependent upon the shape of the candle). In addition, it burns longer than pure paraffin candles.

By contrast, paraffin is a petroleum by-product, harvested through the distillation of crude oil. It smokes, and requires an added scent to cover the odor. Many chandlers (candlemakers) will add additional products to paraffin (such as stearic acid) in order to change the hardness of the wax and the burning properties.
