Paraffin wax play candles are the gold standard in wax play. These candles are the hottest burning candle you can safely drip on your skin. Anything hotter, and you risk injury.
Our paraffin candles are made of 100 percent paraffin, hand-poured, and dye-free — ideal if you have sensitivities to typical dyes and colorants. The wax is opaque in the container as a bright white. A thin layer on the skin will dry down white-ish, depending on your skin tone. If you want a truer white, pour a couple of layers of wax over the same basic spot.
All of our wax play candles are fragrance-free.
The melting point of paraffin candles is 124° Fahrenheit.

To use your paraffin wax play candle, follow these tips:
- Before each use, trim the wick to 1/4″ in length.
- Light the candle.
- Allow time for the wax to melt and create a pool.
- When you’re ready to pour, blow out the candle.
- Hold the container by its handle and pour the wax onto the skin.
- Repeat as often as desired.
Before use, apply an oil-based lotion or cream to the skin for easier wax removal.
To remove paraffin wax from the skin, follow these tips:
- Before playing, put down old towels, a shower curtain liner, or waterproof sheets
- Allow the wax to dry on the skin.
- Use a sharp edge, like a wooden knife (or a real one) or a credit card to scrape the wax off the skin.
Paraffin wax is a preferred wax play option because it comes off the skin the easiest. Once dry, it usually comes off the skin in hard pieces.
