Why you’ll love our candles are much as we do.
Soy Candles are Natural
Most candles sold these days are made of petroleum based paraffin wax, our candles are made of soy wax, a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
Soy’s greatest advantage is that it is completely renewable. While the global reserves of oil shrink and paraffin prices increase, the only limit to the soy supply is how much American farmers choose to grow. The soy used to make your salubrious soy candle was likely in the ground less than a year ago. And chances are that same field is growing more soy for the candles to be made in the future.
Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.
Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin, with no petrol-carbon soot and without adding toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe.
