Uses: The common uses of Candelilla Wax includes lipsticks, lip balms, salves, creams, body butters, hair pomades and is often used as a substitute for beeswax in both cosmetic and candle recipes. However, the amount of wax needed should be reduced as Candelilla Was has twice the stiffening ability of Beeswax. It can also be used in soaps. It will create a quickened trace but an excessive usage of the wax will soften the soap. It can also be used as a substitute for Carnauba wax and has a softer texture than it does. It is also used in crayons, creams, candy and gum, sealing waxes, polishing waxes, pharmaceuticals, electric insulators, precision casting and paper coatings. It is good to use for these items because of its chemical stability, ability to provide shine, protection against moisture, high melting point and adhesive ability. For gums and candy it is able to hold flavor and has a chewable texture.
Heat on low and melt the Candelilla wax in a pan. When melted add in the rest of the ingredients except the essential or flavor oils. Heat the mixture thoroughly and then transfer to a heat safe container with a pour spout. Add and mix in the essential and/or the essential oils. Stir well and quickly pour into their lip balm container or tubes. You can use a pipette in order to top off the lip balm tubes. If the mixture begins to solidify while you are still filling the containers, heat for a couple of seconds in the microwave. This recipe makes approximately 5 ounces of lip balm.

Natural: Candelilla Wax is obtained from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub which is a small shrub that is native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.

Dried Candelilla shrubs are used for fuel. Parts of the plant's root system is left to grow another plant within three years. These shrubs are grown in the hottest and driest areas to produce a high amount of wax and to create high wax yielding varieties of the plant.
