The Best Natural Candle Wax: Coconut and Rapeseed Wax for Vegan, Eco-Friendly Candles


Candles, wax melts and tea lights made from coconut and rapeseed wax blend is gaining popularity as an eco-friendly, sustainable, and vegan alternative to traditional candle waxes.  It was the natural choice when I introduced candles to the Nicki’s Aromatics product range as I wanted to create beautiful, long-burning candles that are better for the environment.  

What is Coconut and Rapeseed Wax?

Coconut and rapeseed wax is a plant-based blend of hydrogenated coconut oil and rapeseed (canola) oil. This vegan, natural candle wax offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional waxes like paraffin or soy.

Benefits of Using Coconut and Rapeseed Wax:

  1. Eco-Friendly and Sustainable: Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from non-renewable petroleum sources, coconut and rapeseed wax is made from renewable plant oils. This makes it a more environmentally friendly choice, with a lower carbon footprint and reduced reliance on fossil fuels.
  1. Vegan and Cruelty-Free: As a 100% plant-derived product, this natural candle wax is vegan and cruelty-free, perfect for those seeking vegan candles and wax melts.
  1. Traceable and Ethical Sourcing: The coconut and rapeseed oils used to make this wax are sourced from sustainable and ethical sources, ensuring that the production process is transparent and responsible - thus producing an eco-friendly candle wax.
  1. Clean and Soot-Free Burn: when burning a natural candle made from coconut and rapeseed wax, the wax burns cleanly, producing little to no soot or residue. This means a cleaner, safer, and more pleasant home fragrance experience, without the risk of discolouring walls or ceilings.
  1. Long-Lasting and Consistent Fragrance Throw: This natural wax has excellent fragrance-holding properties, ensuring that your home fragrances will maintain a consistent and long-lasting scent throw throughout their burn time. 
  1. Slow and Even Burn: Coconut and rapeseed wax has a slower and more even burn rate compared to some other waxes, allowing for longer-lasting candles.

If you want vegan, eco-friendly candles made from high-quality, sustainable ingredients, choose coconut and rapeseed wax products. Using this natural candle wax lets you embrace your values while filling your home with beautiful, long-lasting and natural fragrance.

When you buy Nicki’s Aromatics candles, wax melts and tea lights, you're not only supporting a sustainable and environmentally conscious product, but also enjoying a clean, long-lasting, and consistently fragrant experience.
