Why You Should Always Choose Natural Soy Wax Candles

Why You Should Always Choose Natural Soy Wax Candles

Candles are one of life’s truly special luxuries. Simple in nature yet profoundly calming, candles invite light, joy and fragrant aromas into our homes. Particularly as we head into the winter months, candles can be part of a joyful daily ritual and a dearly cherished gift idea.

Whether you are choosing a candle for your own home or looking to gift a candle to a close friend, be sure to read this guide on why you should always choose a high quality and natural soy wax candle.

What is Soy Wax?

Soy wax is made from soybeans, a natural plant-based and renewable source which is grown in many places around the world. Soybeans can be used almost entirely, from the beans used in food products, the oil used in candles and the leftover flakes which can be used for animal feed, meaning the creation of soy wax is not contributing to unnecessary environmental or food waste.

In contrast, traditional paraffin candles are made from non-renewable petroleum or coal. These candles are generally cheaper than soy due to the inferior quality of materials used.

However, paraffin wax can also cause health and environmental risks as petroleum is a carcinogenic substance. The pollutants in petroleum can be released into our homes and can linger in the environment, contributing to allergic reactions and environmental toxins.

In comparison, soy is a much cleaner and safer wax to burn in your home. 


Why Choose Soy Wax Candles?

Soy wax candles have several functional and environmental benefits over paraffin. These include the following:

Due to their lower melting point, soy candles typically last between thirty to fifty percent longer than paraffin candles, meaning you get more value for money each time you purchase & light a soy candle.

  • Soy is well known to be a strong fragrance carrier, meaning soy candles have a stronger and more balanced scent, that will evenly carry throughout your home.
  •  The wax from soy generally burns cleaner than paraffin, meaning there is less dark soot staining your coffee table and floating in the air.
  • Soy is entirely biodegradable and is cleaner to burn in your home than petroleum-based paraffin, which can release allergens and toxins into your environment.
