YOU NEED TO SWITCH TO SOY WAX CANDLES TODAY

Do you like candles? The Gentle and warm aura? Have you tried soy wax candles instead of Paraffin? You will be amazed at the difference and benefits!

Soy wax and regular wax

Regular wax is also known as paraffin wax and is a residue from the refining of oil, coal, and oil shale.

Soybean oil is extracted for hydrogenation while the remaining by-product is used as animal feed. Nothing is lost.

 

Soy wax is better for your health

Since paraffin is a by-product of refining, it includes the carcinogens toluene and benzene, as well as other toxic chemicals including methyl ethyl ketone and naphthalene.

Soy wax candles are better quality

Although soy wax candles are more expensive than paraffin candles, they burn longer than paraffin candles. Beeswax candles are also another great alternative to a high-quality candle, but tend to be more expensive than soy wax candles.

A little science behind soy wax candles

Soybeans have a lower burning temperature, making them safer to burn. You don’t need that big of a wick to melt the wax. Since these candles have a lower burning temperature, soy-scented candles work wonders to fill your home with fragrance. During the candle-making process, soybean wax will absorb aromatic oils, which are gradually released during the burning process. That’s why you will continue to enjoy the fragrance down to the last centimeter of the candle.

 

Soy candles burn for a longer time

Why would soy candles burn longer if the heat of combustion between soy wax and paraffin is similar? They do so most likely as a result of the lesser flame produced by soy candles. Larger, less volatile molecules found in soy wax cause a reduction in the flow of melted wax through the wick.

Since soy wax is a softer wax, it also makes it easier to clean up spills should they occur.
