What is rapeseed wax?

So, what is rapeseed wax? Have you ever driven past fields of bright yellow flowers? Then you’ve already seen where it comes from! Rapeseed is derived from the rape plant, or more specifically, the oil that is harvested from it. When you buy rapeseed candle wax from us, you can be sure that you won’t be getting the same quality of product anywhere else. The majority of our rapeseed wax is exclusive to us within the UK, so you won’t find the same level of wax from any of our competitors. So if you are looking for the best wax for your money, we are the rapeseed wax supplier for you.

What is it used for?

If you were asked to name a rapeseed product, chances are you would answer with the cooking oil. What a lot of people don’t realise is that rapeseed candle wax is a really popular by-product of the plant too. This wax has been used to make candles for a number of years, and it’s easy to see why. Rapeseed wax candles smell fantastic, thanks to the wax’s excellent fragrance retention. It’s also a great base for a number of pigments and dyes too. You also get an excellent burn time as well, which will provide great value for money for your customers.

What are the benefits of rapeseed wax?

One of the benefits of rapeseed wax is that it is sustainably sourced. There’s no danger of over-farming in the production process, with no intensive processes used. The plant is native to the UK and Europe, and continues to flourish even though rapeseed oil and wax are incredibly popular. No GMOs are used in the farming process either, it’s 100% vegan, and it has a low carbon footprint too. So if you are looking to reduce your impact on the environment as much as you can, then it really is the obvious choice.
