Paraffin is a by-product of the process of refining crude oil into motor oil. Crude oil is distilled into fractions, or cuts, in a pipe still. Crude oil is heated at the bottom of this tall pipe and separates according to temperature into heavy lubricating oil, light lubricating oil, fuel oil, and gasoline as it makes its way to hydrocarbon gas at the top. Waxes from light lubricating oils are chilled and sweated or distilled off, based on their melting points. These waxes are further refined through hydrogenation and end up with very specific properties.

Upon reflection, I can say that if I needed an extra-large wick or ran out of wick when I was desperate to make candles or had a reason to recreate pioneer life, I would certainly make my own wick.
