What is Paraffin?

Paraffin oil is a hydrocarbon liquid and is both colourless and odourless. In certain parts of the world, it is called kerosene and its uses are varied, from heating and cooking through to powering jet engines. Because it is readily available and largely inexpensive, paraffin is often used in developing countries by deprived communities in cooking, to power stoves, and in lamps to light homes and streets.

If you've seen Martin Scorsese’s film Gangs of New York, you may recall the fires that actor Daniel Day Lewis and his team of firemen fought throughout the burgeoning city. During those times, around the late 18 hundreds, the causes of many of these fires were defective paraffin oil lamps.

The Cost of Paraffin

Paraffin prices aren’t set in stone and vary from supplier to supplier. This is because its cost is linked to the price of a barrel of oil alongside facing seasonal changes. Therefore, the price of paraffin changes on a regular basis and the price you paid last time, may not be the price you’ll pay next time around. We therefore recommend you to shop around paraffin suppliers in order to make sure that you don’t pay more than you need to for your paraffin.
