WHY DOES THE WAX A CANDLE IS MADE of Matter

What is wax anyway?

Ask the science textbook, and you’ll find that wax is a flammable, carbon-containing solid that becomes liquid when heated above room temperatures; in short, it’s the fuel for the candle flame. As the flame gets hot, molten wax is vaporized and combusted—producing heat and light.

Paraffin is the most commonly used candle wax today. Beeswax, soy wax, palm wax, gels, and synthesized waxes are also used in candle-making for the U.S. market, as are blends of waxes. Waxes burn with a yellow flame due to the presence of carbon.

How do they make candle wax?
For most of recorded history candles were tallow (a by-product of beef-fat rendering) and beeswax until the mid 1800s at which point they were made mainly from spermaceti (spurring larger demand for whale oil), and stearin (initially manufactured from animal fats but now produced almost exclusively from palm waxes).

Virtually any kind of oil can be made into a wax; the question is: what is the best one for making candles?

How did they make candles in the Middle Ages?
Middle Ages. Most early Western cultures relied primarily on candles rendered from animal fat (tallow). A major improvement came in the Middle Ages, when beeswax candles were introduced in Europe. Unlike animal-based tallow, beeswax burned pure and cleanly, without producing a smoky flame.

What about candle waxes?

The earliest wax candles are thought to have been created around 5000 BC by the Egyptians, who dipped papyrus reeds in Beeswax (produced by honey bees). Since then, alongside beeswax, a number of other waxes have come to be popular for candle-making, namely: Paraffin Wax (derived directly from petroleum), Palm Wax (derived from palm oil), Soy Wax (derived from soybean oil).

The main factors that led to the usage of these waxes: ease of production, low costs, pleasant aesthetic, good scent properties, and effective burning.

 Why don’t we use one of these waxes?

You’ll notice that sustainability did not feature in that list of key candle-wax properties. When we came to sourcing a wax for our candles, we put sustainability on equal footing with other wax properties, and found a frustrating picture.

Paraffin wax may be very low cost and known for its wonderful burning and scent properties, but as a product of the oil industry it is the very definition of unsustainable(the sludge left in the pipes when they are done making gasoline. Paraffin wax, colourless or white, somewhat translucent, hard wax consisting of a mixture of solid straight-chain hydrocarbons ranging in melting point from about 48° to 66° C (120° to 150° F). Paraffin wax is obtained from petroleum by dewaxing light lubricating oil stocks.

Further recent studies, such as this 2009 study by South Carolina State University, have shown that burning paraffin candles indoors can create unhealthy airborne chemicals. So that’s not going to work for us.

Paraffin-based candles emitted toxic chemicals like toluene and benzene. The soot/fumes are similar to that released from a diesel engine and can be as dangerous as second-hand cigarette smoke. This can contribute to serious respiratory issues like asthma.

Palm Wax was initially heralded as the holy grail of the candle industry. With a pleasant, aesthetic, ‘feathered’ effect, and a similar burn quality as that of paraffin, palm wax was once viewed as the sustainable solution to paraffin use. However, a 2009 investigation by the Economist (“The other oil spill”) discovered that, even with the creation of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), deforestation practices were rampant and endangering many species of animals as demand for palm wax skyrocketed. Even today, it’s considered almost impossible to source truly sustainable palm oil products. This is why I do not use Palm Candle Wax.

Today’s featured oil Arborvitae

Description

Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits. Our arborvitae essential oil is sourced from the heartwood of the Thuja plicata tree. It is also known as Western Red Cedar and is native to North America (primarily Canada and the Northwestern United States). This unique source of arborvitae essential oil contains a distinct chemical profile and is uniquely concentrated in methyl thujate.

Aromatic Description

Woody, warm, earthy

Extraction Method:

Steam Distillation

Plant Part

Wood

Main Constituents

Methyl thujate

Are you looking for a natural but effective household cleaner?

  • Mix with water and another antiseptic oil, if desired, to create a powerful cleaning agent.
  • Diffuse to create an air freshener that can fight airborne bacteria, promoting a clean atmosphere with a bright, fresh scent.
  • Use to clean and polish wood surfaces and floors to clean and preserve the wood, adding a soft luster that can make those surfaces look like new.  Even the hardest, toughest woods will brighten right up.  Mix 4 drops of Arborvitae essential oil and 2 drops of Lemon essential oil with Olive Oil for a natural wood preservative and polish.
  • It can also be a natural way to protect clothes from moths, which are not fond of its scent.   Adding a few drops of the oil to water (not oil, so as not to inadvertently soil the clothing you are trying to protect) and rubbing into wood coat hangers can help keep your clothes in storage moth-free, without the nasty smell of mothballs.

Do you want to restore some luster to your skin?

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil, such as Sweet Almond, Grapeseed  or Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

  • Add to a skin lotion or moisturizer to promote healthy, glowing skin. Apply directly to the skin, or mix with a moisturizer or lotions, to promote healthier, better-looking skin.  This oil penetrates deep into pores and delivering moisture to your skin, and its natural cleaning agents help keep your skin bright and clear.
  • This oil can also be applied to skin blemishes to reduce their appearance and help them clear more quickly.  Its natural cleaning properties reduce the amount of dead skin and other detritus on skin, helping avoid unwanted blemishes, and may even lessen the appearance of scarring.

Are you constantly plagued by mosquitos?

  • Combine with water and spray as an insect repellant.  This can be accomplished by either spraying onto clothing or by making a larger batch and mixing into garden mulch.

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.

Use during meditation for a sense of peace and calm.

Where can you buy this? From us, Aesthetic Candles.

We offer this in a 5 ml bottle (100 drops) or 1 ml bottle (20 drop)

Arborvitae Essential Oil Safety

Arborvitae essential oil is not recommended for ingestion, as some of its chemical components are toxic to humans.  Excessive inhalation may result in irritation of the lungs or respiratory tract, so users should avoid constantly diffusing over long periods of time.   Arborvitae oil is likely to irritate the skin if applied directly in a high concentration; dilute with a carrier oil or lotion prior to topical use in order to minimize the risk of irritating sensitive skin.  The use of essential oils should not be substituted for any prescribed medication for any medical condition, and should not be used against the advice of a medical practitioner.

 

 

Essential Oil Safety

Essential oils are very concentrated substances. One drop can be powerful enough to relieve an itchy bug bite, soothe a burn, or stop a cold in its tracks. It is natural to assume that because essential oils originate from plant sources they are without risk, but this is not always the case. Essential oils have the potential to cause minor reactions, such as skin irritation, or more serious consequences like respiratory failure and cancer, when not used appropriately. Some of the major areas of concern include, “overdose, neurotoxins, inhaled allergens, adverse skin reactions, and carcinogens.

Properly Diluting Essential Oils

Even essential oils with strong safety concerns can be used safely if properly diluted. Knowing how to dilute properly will help us use essential oils safely.

Concentrated substances are rarely intended for use “as is” – and essential oils are no different. There is almost never a time when you would not want to dilute the potency of an essential oil. Diluting essential oils is done by adding a drop (or more) of the essential oil into a carrier oil, such as jojoba oil (more on carrier oils next). This not only provides a good medium for the oil to absorb into the skin, but spreads the oil over a larger surface of your skin for more effect.

Bottom Line: Exercise caution and do your research before using essential oils on the skin, even undiluted.

Photosensitivity of Certain Oils

Always include a caution on my recipes that include citrus oils that they may make the skin more sensitive to the sun. These oils have certain constituents that can make the skin more sensitive to UV light and can lead to blistering, discoloration of the skin or burning more easily from minor sun exposure.

Though the risk of photosensitivity or phototoxicity varies based on the way the oil was distilled, oils generally considered photosensitive are: orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, and bergamot.

Internal Use of Essential Oils

This will be a controversial point, but many essential oils are not safe for internal use and others should be used with extreme caution. Since essential oils are the equivalent of 10-50 cups of herbal tea (depending on the herb) or 20x the recommended dose of an herbal tincture of the same herb, they should only be taken internally in situations where they are absolutely needed and with extreme care (and under the guidance of a trained professional).

Here’s the thing- essential oils are extremely potent plant compounds that can have a very dramatic effect on the body. Many online sources tout their “antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal” properties. You know what is teeming with many types of bacteria?

Lemongrass Eucalyptus Aromatherapy Candles

Lemongrass as the name implies, lemongrass smells just like lemons, but it is milder, sweeter, and far less sour. Lemongrass boosts self esteem, confidence, hope and mental strength, and it uplifts spirits and fights depression. This can be very helpful to drive away depression due to failures in their career, personal life, insecurity, loneliness, stagnation, death in the family and many other reasons. This also relieves anxiety.

Eucalyptus is great for mental exhaustion: One very important reason that many people use eucalyptus oil is that it creates a cooling and refreshing effect. Normally, people suffering from certain conditions and disorders are slightly sluggish. Eucalyptus oil, a stimulant, removes exhaustion and mental sluggishness and rejuvenates the spirits of the sick. It can also be effective in the treatment of stress and mental disorders..

Great Blend to keep Mosquitoes and No See Ums.  Lemon grass has used for a long time as a natural insect repellents.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved eucalyptus oil as an effective mosquito repellent. Effective, naturally based insect protection  http://www.aesthetic-candles.com/lemongrass-eucalyptus-2
