Paraffin wax is very easy to apply to the extremities. First, paraffin wax needs to be melted completely and must be allowed to be cooled down about few degrees above its melting point.

This step is crucial as paraffin wax has excellent heat absorption properties; excessive heated paraffin wax can burn the skin. Then, by using a brush or fabric strips one can apply molten paraffin wax to any part of body. It is notable, the more layer of paraffin wax applied the heat will last longer.

In order to make the paraffin wax heat last longer and maximizing paraffin wax therapy benefits, after applying paraffin wax you can cover it with plastic and/or insulated covers.
