Exclamation What Main Ingredients Are In A Candle?

I have to explain what is in a candle, white and coloured. Does anyone know. I have looked on quite a few websites but none of them have got the information i am looking for. Please can someone tell me?

well, it's mostly wax and a wick in a white candle. there may be a small amount of some chemicals to make it burn more slowly. in the coloured candles, it's the same thing, plus dye. in scented candles, it's wax, and an esential oil, or something like it.
