Why use Paraffin Wax as Treatment?

Paraffin wax is a soft, but solid, wax made up of a mixture of hydrocarbons. The uses of paraffin wax range from making typical wax products such as crayons and candles to certain therapeutic uses.

Paraffin wax has been used to treat pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Certain patients who suffer from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis are a few examples of individuals who can use paraffin wax as a treatment to reduce pain and discomfort in the hands. Paraffin wax also has been used for cosmetic purposes, due to its moisturizing qualities. It aids in removing dead skin cells and boosts levels of moisture, leaving skin looking more radiant and smoother.

However, individuals with diabetes, poor blood circulation, any skin injuries or sores, and those who are prone to skin sensitivity must consult with their primary physician before using paraffin wax.
