After burning, the wax is turning a different color and giving the candle an ugly layered look. Is this from the type of wax? Or the heat? Any tips on how to not make this happen?

Here's a picture...

I'm thinking by the photo that you are using a soy wax? The times that I have used a 100% soy wax I have seen changes in the melt pool after it re-solidifies. It's one of the natures of soy wax, and a reason I prefer to blend waxes.

Yes soy wax. Sorry i should have been more specific. Naturewax c3.
I'd prefer to use more natural wax and not add paraffin if possible.
