Why would you buy a Soy Wax candle? Well, have you been looking for clean burning candles that do not stain walls and home interiors? What about a healthy candle that do not produce toxins when lit? Then your search can end now! Switch from your usual candles to one which is natural and eco-friendly – a Soy Wax candle!

Soy is the new wonder ingredient for candles – so what’s the secret of soy?

Aromatherapy scents

A Soy Candle makes the best carrier for essential oils, and so are the best Aromatherapy candles to buy. This is because they do not have negative effects such as they do not release toxins or soot thus you are left to enjoy the therapeutic effects of the essential oil.  By comparison, Paraffin wax candles release soot as well as 11 toxins, two of which are carcinogenic.  As a consequence, combining Paraffin wax candles with essential oils is a bit of a contradiction, with the toxic effects of Paraffin wax negating the therapeutic benefits of the Essential Oils.

Safer candles

It is a little known fact that Paraffin wax burns at a higher temperature than Soy Wax.  The fact that Soy Wax burns so much cooler means that if you accidentally spill wax from your Soy Candle on your hands, you won’t suffer from redness or blistering.  A Soy Candle is, therefore, the safest type of candles to burn in homes, especially those with children in them.

Cleaner candles

Unlike the Paraffin wax, Soy Wax is water soluble.  More good news for families with children or pets! If curious little fingers tip wax onto your favourite tablecloth, Soy Wax can easily be washed out using just soap and water.
