Benefits of Soy Wax Candles Posted on 02 May 17:26 , 0 comments
Many of us buy soy wax candles and other products, but do we actually know the benefits of soy wax.
Firstly soy is a sustainable resource. Soy beans are a natural, renewable source grown in many regions. Paraffin candles are actually made from petroleum oil. Soy wax does not release any toxins into the air, like paraffin, or increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. They also do not require chemicals to scent them.
Soy wax is also naturally biodegradable, making it easier to remove from surfaces. Reusing our stunning jars is easy, just wipe out left over wax and wash in warm soapy water.
Soy candles burn 50% longer than regular candles, making them more cost effective. Whilst they may cost more to purchase, they will burn a lot longer.
Soy wax is a cleaner burn. Paraffin wax can cause black soot of the candle jars, as well as on furniture and walls. Soy also burns completely, not leaving any wax behind.
The scent from soy wax is much stronger and nicer than paraffin wax. Because soy wax has a lower melting point, there is a large amount of melted wax around the wick, which is where the fragrance oils evaporate into the atmosphere.
We have many different 100% soy wax candles available. Hope you enjoy the cleaner burn.
