Hi All, Newbie here

Has anyone dabbled with rapeseed wax? I am doing a lot of research and seeing a mixed bag of comments.

Also curious as to why nobody sells rapeseed wax melts when there are literally thousands of soy wax melts around.

Thanks
Sandy

Think its down to availability and costs. Rape is marginally more expensive and it is tricky to work with compared to soy - it gives a less even coverage on candle tops.

Soy seems to give a nice glossy even top - to be honest I dont think I have tested rapeseed melts think perhaps I will have to now!

Hi and Welcome! I had never heard of it so did a google search and it looks like it's primarily available in the UK. I didn't find any US sources thought didn't do an intense search either. You may want to go to the introduction thread and tell us a little about yourself. Interested to see if anyone has any suggestions.
