What kind of paraffin wax?some are specially designed for pillar candles to shrink from the mold. 

 

For pillars i use a silicone candle release release spray in my molds to help them slip out

 

for the one already stuck put it in the freezer overnight and see if it releases after good and frozen.

Is there a brand on your package to help identify what the wax actually is? Looking for the name of the manufacturer, and the type. For instance, IGI 4625, Problend 450, kY143, etc. 

 

Paraffin comes in many different blends, some are suitable, some are not. Without knowing which Company made it and the type it is very difficult to be certain.
