In this way, what is the best wax for making scented candles?

Paraffin wax is the most widely used and is easy to work with. Vegetable waxes offer a more natural alternative, but are slightly harder to work with. Both can produce beautiful clean-burning candles if correctly made.

Soy wax, which is made from hydrogenated soybean oil, and beeswax are the two longest lasting waxes. While beeswax typically lasts longer, it is more difficult to work with because it has an extremely high melting point.
