Sure you can use it. Will it work as well as snowboard wax? Let me hazard a guess...

Run to your grocery store and buy "Gulf Wax" which is parrafin wax and you will be fine. It even says right on the box you can use it for ski/snowboards.
and the only reason they say that is to make money.

paraffin wax is a mere component of snowboard 'glide waxes'.
get something that was cooked up for the intended purpose.

candle wax is for nipples

paraffin wax is for covering edam cheese!
