Need help getting wax of travertine tile

I need to know if it is possible to remove wax from the toilet ring off an unsealed travertine floor. Someone stepped on the wax ring from the toilet and tracked it on the new unsealed tile. Please help!!

Scrape the excess off with a razor,then use citrus gum remover and hot water.

Just be careful of the citrus cleaner on the travertine, as travetine is acid sensitive and will etch with acidic compounds. Check the ph level of the product before using it.
You can also try a wax stripper designed for floors.
H2O Strip or Mira Strip from Miracle Sealants are good choices to start with.
