Benefits of Paraffin Wax

 

The most important advantage paraffin has over water was in the way that it retained and conducted heat. If you immerse your hand in hot water bath and a paraffin bath of the same temperature, the water bath feels hotter than the paraffin bath. In addition to not burning the skin and feeling more comfortable, the coat of wax also acts like a blanket trapping the heat. Using paraffin instead of water also avoids the shrivelled appearance.
