Why Choose Soy Wax Candles?
We LOVE making candles. They are a beautiful and creative product of love for you, and it is so heartwarming for us to hear about all you wonderful people burning our candles. But...why did we choose soy wax as our main candle wax and why should you choose soy wax candles?
**For an AMAZING scent throw, we also add some coconut wax into the formula.
#1. Soy wax is actually slower burning than paraffin wax which makes for a better burn! Soy wax burns up to 50% longer than paraffin wax because soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, which means it melts at a cooler temperature and doesn't burn as fast.
#2. When burnt Soy wax is a non toxic wax. This is a SUPER important reason. Paraffin, a petroleum-based wax, is the biggest baddie in the world of candles! Burning paraffin emits toxic chemicals into the air that we breathe. Why would you want to burn something that adds toxic compounds to our air? Being very eco-conscious we wanted to choose the healthiest of all waxes.
#3. Soy candles provide a stronger scent when burning. Paraffin candles and others that use chemical scents can produce harsh, unnatural smells, like a cheap car freshener. It’s common to hear people complain of headaches when paraffin candles burn. The strong delicious scent is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in a rich therapeutic experience.
#4. Soy wax is much more sustainable and gentle to the planet. The soy plant is both renewable and sustainable making it best for the environment and the world.
#5. Soy wax is vegan which is perfect for practicing a vegan lifestyle. You can find soy wax candles made from 100% organic non-GMO soy oil.
