Top Ten Reasons Soy Candles are Better



Top 10 Reasons Soy Candles Are Better

We absolutely love working with soy wax. Soy wax is is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans.

After soybeans are harvested , they are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. Oil is then removed from the flakes and hydrogenated. Once the oil is at room temperature it becomes a solid - soy wax! Pretty neat...

The benefits of soy candles:

1. Our soy candles burn longer. This means that you will get way more enjoyment out of a soy candle than a paraffin candle.

2. Paraffin candles release chemicals that smell...our scents and the soy release only clean, safe scents.

3. Sustainability matters. Soy is renewable.

4. When you burn a soy candle - there is 90% less soot which is reducing your air pollution.

5. Did you know that paraffin candle's emissions can build up on walls - staining the paint, on fabrics, and carpets?

6. Soy candles won't produce as much heat as a paraffin candle. 

7. If you spill soy wax it is a lot easier to clean off than other wax.

 8. Buying soy helps farms  Canada's third-largest crop is soy you're supporting farmers.

9. Soy candles are safer: Soy is a soft wax so tapers are nearly impossible to find. But tapers can tip over easily, so avoid the fire hazard altogether with soy pillar candles.

10. Soy candles are 100% vegan and do not require any animal products in their production or use.
