A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Palm Wax

A natural wax derived from the palm tree. It's a hard wax with a high melting point comes in flake form and used straight or as an additive to other synthetic or natural waxes. See our full range of Palm Wax Candles

Paper Core

A cotton wick with an inner core of paper or cardboard. The paper wick helps keep the wick straight when immersed in liquid wax.

Paraffin Wax

The most common form of wax used in candle making and is refined from petroleum. See our full range of Paraffin Wax Candles

Petrolatum

(AKA Vaseline, Petroleum Jelly) Additive used to soften wax and lower the melting point. Frequently used by wax sculptors as it makes the wax softer and easier to sculpt.

Pigment Colour

Tiny particles suspended in a candle to produce colour. The pigment colour will clog a candle if used in the core, so this process should only be used as an overdrip colour.

Pillar Candle

Free standing candles that are normally tall and cylindrical in shape. Usually made in metal, latex or acrylic moulds and designed to be burned on a flat holder. See our full range of Pillar Candles

Pillar Candle Holder

A large candle holder used to hold Pillar Candles. Mostly made from wood or metal, the candle is placed on a spike to keep it secure and any hot wax is collected at the base when the candle is burning. See our full range of Pillar Candle Holders

Polyethylene

An additive used to harden the wax and add sheen to the candle when cast in a smooth surface mould.

Pot Pourri

A mixture of dried, fragrant plant material, used to provide a gentle natural scent in your home. It is usually placed in a decorative wooden bowl, or tied in small bags made from sheer fabric. See our full range of Pot Pourri

Pouring Temperature

The optimum temperature at which wax should be poured into a mould to produce the best finish or characteristics to the candle. The pouring temperature is dependant upon the size and type of mould, wax used and finish desired of the candle.
