100% paraffin

By one specifically meant for wax play. DO NOT just grab any candle.

Paraffin, paraffin always, most commercial candles will be way, way too hot, and can seriously hurt your partner.

Apparently they make a soy based wax candle you can also use that Eden actually sells as massage candles, these burn super cold, so they are apparently a very good start for super new to wax play people. Word of warning wax play is a giant pain to clean up, and try to keep a bowl of cool water handy if things get too hot for you, or your partner.

pure paraffin. Just those nice white paraffin candles. Prayer candles are often this. Very ironic if you ask me. Prayer candles used to wax play. Mhmm!

Glad you asked, because my partner and I were looking in as well.

I'm curious, why pure paraffin? Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm glad I saw this post. I've been wanting to try wax play.

Does paraffin burn cooler or something?

Yep, paraffin melts at a much lower temperature than other candle waxes. A pure paraffin candle can have a melting point as low as 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Just as a point of comparison, a beeswax candle will have a melting point around 140-150 degrees Fahrenheit.

While 20-30 degrees might not seem like a massive difference, when you're up near the ranges where burns can occur, 20-30 degrees can spell the difference between a sexy night of wax play and having to break out the burn ointment.

Just as another tip, since we're on the subject of wax play and avoiding burns, keep in mind that the wax will cool more the longer it's in the air before hitting your partner's skin. So, the higher you hold the candle while you're dripping the wax, the lower your chances of burning your partner. Of course, you don't want the wax to be lukewarm by the time it hits (the fact that it's hot wax is part of the fun, after all), but you can at least start by holding the candle high and then progressively lower it while checking in with your partner until you reach the Goldilocks zone of temperature.
