1. Why Does Scent Bring Back Memories?

It's called palm wax. Not many people know a lot about it, but those who do swear that it's the best to use for so many reasons. This post will look into the differences between both palm and soy wax, and see which one is better to use. See which wax you will enjoy using more; palm or soy!   One of the big differences between these waxes is that Palm wax is 100% bio gradable and water soluble.
