Tropical Scents offers quality candles made with 100% palm wax.
Palm wax is derived from the kernel of the palm fruit, which is grown on trees and picked rather than sown and harvested in a field, requiring much less energy and labour. The palm kernel has one of the highest oil contents of any plant, so a lot of wax can be expelled from a small amount of trees.
Palm waxes burn cleaner and longer than paraffin wax and have the added benefit of being made from renewable resources and not a petroleum by product. Our candles are hand poured and we use all natural cotton wicks, and the highest quality fragrances and essential oils. The most fascinating property of palm wax is its unique crystalline beauty. When properly heated and cooled, it's the only candle wax capable of creating crystals that have the appearance of tiny starbursts. The beautiful crystallized appearance is a natural occurrence with palm wax and not from any additives.
