Wax comes naturally things like plants and animals (think beeswax and your earwax ..eew!) and then there is petroleum based waxes, which are made from things like paraffin.

I always found it strange that you can burn wax. Especially paraffin, which is really flammable. I guess it seems like it should just quietly melt, like candles do…
