Whether you’re looking to buy a gift for yourself or for someone else, candles are the perfect choice.
Whether you’re looking to buy a gift for yourself or for someone else, candles are the perfect choice. Candles greatly improve the atmosphere of your home and help brighten any occasion. When deciding on which candle, we want to buy, though, we should consider how they are created first. Listed below are several reasons why candles made of soy wax are the best option.
1. Soy wax is completely natural and renewable
While paraffin is a by-product of crude oil refining, soy wax is a relatively pure compound for making candles, since it is made from soybeans, specifically hydrogenated soybean oil that turns into a solid at room temperature. Compared to other natural candle waxes, soy wax is less expensive and is not in limited supply.
2. Soy wax candles are non-toxic (unlike paraffin)
Soy wax is non-poisonous and is made from vegetable products. It is 100% vegan and does not require animal products in their production and use. Most soy candles use soy wax that contains no harmful pesticides/ material that has been genetically or chemically modified, making them an amazing option for a healthy home.
3. Soy wax burns cleaner & longer than paraffin
Since they are non-toxic, soy wax naturally burns cleaner and produces less soot. Additionally, any soot that soy wax candles might produce contain no petroleum carbons, meaning it is much healthier to breathe in. It also has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, allowing it to burn for a longer duration.
4. Soy wax is biodegradable
Soy wax is biodegradable and can be washed with soap and water! Accidental spills can therefore be easily dealt with.
5. Strongly scented!
Since the melting point of soy wax is lower than paraffin, this results in a much stronger scent being released from the candles.
