Paraffin wax is a petroleum byproduct, and it  is a major component of paraffin wax, it also tends to emit more smoke and potentially hazardous toxins than its natural wax counterparts.

But paraffin wax tends to hold fragrance better, longer and easier than natural waxes. Typically, the scent throw from paraffin candles is stronger and can fill larger spaces more effectively.

Today,  natural waxes such as soy, beeswax and palm wax, have become readily available in the market. While natural waxes may be slightly more expensive than paraffin, they are still an affordable option.

Palm wax candles their scent throw is typically softer than paraffin, sometimes attaining a strong scent throw, or getting heavier amounts of fragrance oil to blend well with the wax.  They may also have a tendency to form bubbles which make the candles less attractive to the eye.

Overall, palm wax candles do burn cleaner with less soot than paraffin candles, avoiding sooty build-up on walls. They are easy to clean up by just soap and water in the event of a spill.
