We've been fans of candles for a long time and we've tried a lot of different varieties, but not until recently did we realize just how amazing soy wax candles are. As a result, when we decided to begin creating our own, we knew that all of our candles had to be soy based. Below are the top 5 reasons why we believe soy candles are the only type of candles that you should burn.
1. Most soy candles are all natural
Soy candles are made from soybeans, which is essentially vegetable oil, while other candles commonly use paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum oil. Most soy candle makers also use essential oils for fragrances instead of chemical fragrances to make all natural soy candles.
2. The scent in soy candles are often more aromatic
Soy wax has a much lower melting point than other waxes. Lower melting points mean there is a larger pool of liquid wax around the wick of the candle. This pool of liquid wax combining with the wick is what causes oils evaporate into the atmosphere. All these factors combined lead for a candle that often is said to "throw" the room better, meaning it fills more of the room with a fragrant, aromatic smell.
3. Most soy candles are non-toxic
Soy candles are made of vegetable oil, which as we pointed out above has a lower melting point, meaning the wax doesn't get at hot. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are typically healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. And they even clean up easier when the wax is spilled - it just takes a little soap and water!
4. Typically, a soy candle burns 50% longer than other candles
Soy wax candles are often more expensive to buy than paraffin wax candles, but since they burn longer, they are more cost-effective. Soy candles burn more evenly as well, leaving almost no excess wax on the sides of the container.
5. Soy candles burn cleaner than other candles
Candle soot is a nuisance. If you burn a lot of candles, over time it can the snoot can actually cause damage to your home or office by staining the edges of your carpet or discoloring your walls and furniture. Since soy candles burn cleaner than paraffin way or other candles, they don’t produce black soot like others do.
We believe that soy wax candles are the only type that should be burned in our homes and offices. We hope you join the soy wax candle club!
