We’ve all seen the posts “ 100% Natural, soy based candles” and perhaps you’ve wondered “what’s the big deal?” or “ great another, it’s organic fab” however, the truth is there are HUGE benefits to going a more natural route with your home candles.
To help shed some light on the topic, here are some not so secret, secrets revealed about soy candles.
#1 - Soy candles actually burn 50% LONGER than regular candles. Therefore yes you may spend a little more on natural scented soy candles but you will be enjoying a candle for a much longer time than if you opt for a paraffin or beeswax candle.
#2 - Soy candles are made from vegetable oil which comes from soybeans making them completely natural. Unlike paraffin candles which are made from petroleum oil, soy candles do not increase the CO2 levels in the atmosphere.
#3- When you burn your first Soy candle you will realize the scent is much stronger and appealing compared to paraffin wax candles and this is due to the larger wax pool created by soy candles. The natural essential oils burn in these wax pools, therefore the bigger the wax pool the bolder the smell.
#4- They come from a renewable, sustainable resource and are naturally biodegradable.
#5- Soy burns much cleaner than paraffin or Beeswax candles, that means less smoke when you blow out your candles.
By now, I’m sure you can agree it’s a vital investment for not only your health but our planet. Small everyday changes like these help us lead a healthier, soothing life full of aromatic bliss, while doing something good for our planet.
