Hi everyone. Don't usually post, just read. But, with all the talk about Palm Wax, I thought I'd show these.

Very nice! 8)
I really like your roses. Have you ever been able to get a deep red with palm wax? That would be really pretty in the rose mold.

This is your KNOW ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT CANDLES Admin.

Is Palm Wax actually derived from Palm Trees (that could be one of those "is Chicken of the Sea ... Tuna or Chicken" questions).

Does it have some advantage over Soy and other vegetable waxes. I really don't know all the vegetables and plants you can make wax from.

I was just curious because I've seen it (Palm) mentioned here and there and wondered why people use it. Alabaster, the board sponsor doesn't stock it. (at least I didn't put it into their shopping cart database).

Nice candles by the way.

Hi Glenda. Thanks a bunch. I can get pretty dark with the colors using both liquid and blocks. They just don't look as dark because of the crystal effect. I will try one tomorrow to see just how dark I can get it.

Well Joe, as for me, I just loved what they looked like and had to try it out! Laughing But they are much easier than some people made them out to be. They are simply beautiful and have a great scent throw. So far everyone seems to like them.

I did a search on Candlewic's site and on letmakescandles.com and this is what they say about Palm Waxes;
Candlewic; Palm Waxes
Candlewic's new series of palm waxes are complex blends of tropical oils and their derivatives. This line of wax offers you a natural alternative to beeswax and soy wax. Palm wax possesses beautiful surface finish, excellent burning qualities and color stability. The Palm waxes carried by Candlewic present exciting possibilities for fulfilling your discerning standards of quality as well as your expressions of beauty and style.

Palm waxes typically offer superb color stability through a wide range of colors from subtle light pastels, to brilliant primaries, to rich deep tones-distinctive in any chosen setting. However certain colorants that may have solubility issues with the palm waxes. Color blocks and buttons have all been tested in the waxes.

Other site;
Palm wax is an all-natural, renewable resource that is obtained from the oil palm in Southeast Asia. Due to its environmentally friendly attributes, palm wax offers a whole new choice for candle makers who market sustainable or renewable resource based extensions to their candle lines. It has been grown as a commercial crop in well managed and regulated estates since the early 1900’s. The oil palm produces fruit in bunches which are harvested, and sent to palm oil mills where the oils are extracted, sterilized, clarified and purified into crude palm oil. The crude oil is then sent to palm oil refineries where it is processed further into products such as cooking oil, shortening, cocoa butter substitutes, non-dairy creamers, soaps, and of course everybody’s favorite – Palm Wax.

Those are really beautiful! The only time I tried palm wax was a couple of years ago. I never could get them wicked right, so I gave up. Are the palm waxes now easier to wick without the 'blow out'?

A blowout is when the wick is too big and it burns through the sides. Saves a lot of time and trouble, to read the manufacturers recommendations doesn't it. Wink

Be sure and post a picture if you get a good red!

Do they really have good scent throw? I heard the opposite! I have tons of palm wax and I have yet to play with it!
