Posted:okay, so, i've been wondering what the corrilation between liquid parrafin and parrafin wax is. they're obviously both petroleum distilates, but how closely are they related? i've noticed when mine got cold it got pretty waxy, and much like you'd expect a warm candle to act. or, mabey i just dreamed that bit because i dont remember when it got that cold shrug

Posted:I think that the liquid parrafin has smaller molecules --> lower melting point compared to the wax.
