Why Soy?

Natural- Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers.  Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances.  These substances may be released into the air while burning, according to The Daily Green.  Using candles made from soy supports local agriculture and farmers, allowing them to make money and grow their operations.

Longer Lasting- Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green.  The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax.  You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often.  Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.

Better Scent- Soy candles work well with holding onto the scent from essential oils, which are often used to scent candles.  Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released; there won't be an immediate wave of strong scent.  This creates a more pleasant atmosphere for most people.  The natural wax also holds onto color well, which makes it look more attractive.

Non-toxic- Soy Candles are non-toxic, since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air.  Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment.  Plus, they clean up easier (just use soap and water) when the wax is spilled onto candle holders, carpet, and furniture pieces.
