Tip: you can use a microwave. i used old birthday candles like the little ones that are blue yellow and red. i microwaved it and it works just fine i recommend putting it in the fridge longer than 15 minutes

Is it safe to make in doors or is there toxic fumes when you make it with wax?

No any source of wax will work candles are just easily available and already pre constructed skate wax all on their own they work as is

Yeah, but there are alternative ways to get candles, for example the Goodwill has cheap, large candle ranging from 50 cents to 2 dollars.

Should work just fine in the future you don't need to add any oils or days at all the wax alone will work just fine even in raw candle form

You know you don't need to add any oil at all and that just the wax will work great if you wanted you could skip melting the candle all together and just use the candle itself they work great for skate wax all on their own my aunt used to be missing candles all the time
