There are many different types of candle wax on the market from Parafin to Gel Wax. One of the best types of wax is melted beeswax. In article written by Lizz Shepherd, eHow Contributing Writer, poured beeswax candles are made from melted beeswax that is reshaped in a mold to create the candle instead of using pre-formed beeswax sheets. The completed candles look like paraffin candles, but they burn cleaner. Poured beeswax candles burn slower than rolled beeswax and they don't develop a white film on them as quickly as rolled beeswax does.
