Why are soy wax candles better than 'regular' candles...

 

Let's answer your burning questions about soy wax... 

 

Are soy wax candles better than paraffin wax? 

In our opinion, yes! Paraffin wax contains toxins that emit when they burn, similar in chemistry to diesel exhaust, so they are really bad for you and your home! Plus they aren't great for the environment. Paraffin wax's produce a lot of soot which can also leave stains on your walls, which isn't what you want. A lot of the bigger brands and cheap candles you can pick up at big shops use paraffin wax as it's cheap to use, we chose to use soy wax for our candles as we care about you and your health, and the health of the planet! 

Are soy wax candles healthier?

Have you ever smelt a candle and thought, that's given me a headache... That is from the toxins of cheap paraffin candles! Soy wax won't leave you feeling like this, it burns cleaner and is a natural resource that doesn't produce soot when it burns. This is much better for the air quality in your home. 

Do soy wax candles smell better?

As soy wax candles don't produce soot, you will be able to smell the fragrance in your candle much easier and will leave you with a much more pleasant experience. 

What are non-toxic candles made of?

Non-toxic candles will always be made with a natural resource, like soy, beeswax, and coconut. We make all of our candles from 100% soy wax as they are vegan and burn clean. 

Are soy wax candles safe?

Soy wax candles are made from soybeans, a natural resource, which makes them a natural safe option compared to most conventionally produced candles, and also renewable and biodegradable. 

Why should I choose soy candles? 

Not only are there environmental advantages to choosing soy, but they also burn slower than other waxes, meaning if you choose to burn your candles, you will get a longer burn time from them.
