Finding your Personality in Wax
In this comparison of candle making wax to people,
what kind of wax would you think you are?
The different kinds of candle waxes are:
- Paraffin wax - it is a petroleum product which when produced becomes a solid as it cools. Hmm? It obviously is warmed and then cools to a solid.
What kind of person does this sound like? Maybe someone with a warm, affectionate heart who even in their times of being alone, with no one else around, just emulate a solid lifestyle. Both in good or bad times. A pleasant goal to reach for.
- Candle Gel - this is a form of mineral oil that has been thickened with polymer for use in candles. It has a very low melting point and is one of the best starter type candles to make. It can be melted then re-melted, designed then redesigned. It is one of the most versatile waxes around.
Maybe the person who would have this kind of personality would be carefree and easy going. Someone who would go anywhere or do anything that was presented to them. Fun-loving, flexible and pliable.
- Beeswax - this is a wax that comes from beehives. Just thinking of it describes a busy-ness. The hive, the bees, the coming and going of little creatures. The constant buzzing... The constant doing of life...
Who else but someone of a busy nature would this describe? Someone constantly talking and always on the move. Maybe this would be a good description of the neighborhood busy-body. Yes we know the type... We have all met him or her. And no being busy is not only for women, men do it too, lol !
- Natural beeswax - is a candle made from the best of the best candle beeswax you can get. No preservatives... no artificial perfumes... no dyes... no toxins of any kind... and definitely environmentally friendly to your home and mine.
An absolute naturalist kind of person. Doing and being healthy in all areas of their lives. Including the candles they choose. These people seriously practice what they believe in all areas of their life. Much to be admired, they are!
- "A 'Natural' wax - is a wax from a renewable resource such as a plant, insect or animal. The candle making wax from an animal would be from the exterior of a living animal such as Lanolin (wool grease)." quote from Let's Make Candles (candle making wax)
Natural candles can be made with the following: beeswax, bayberry or palm. Variety is the spice of life. Variety would also help us attain and retain our health for years to come. Versatile personality. Easily bends to what the situation calls for. Instills healthy living - a reasonable and attainable goal for all of us.
- Soy wax - made from the soybean these candles make for a healthy solution also, in health conscious homes. The simplicity of these candles can not be overstated. Just melt the wax and pour. They make great pastel candles because of their opaque color effect.
These candles may illustrate a laid back individual. The ultimate in easy-going. You just will tolerate any state you find. Great to be such a person in today's day and age.
