Here are 5 simple facts why soy candles are fabulous and the perfect option for you candle needs
- Slower Burn Time
The same amount of soy candle burns for much longer due to their lower melting point. To give you a number, paraffin wax burns 50% faster than soy candles. This also means they do not get as hot as regular candles. Soy candles maybe more expensive at first, but worth the initial investment especially if you love the scent!
- Natural Base
What is the best way to say screw you to rising petroleum costs (financially and environmentally). A lot of your everyday products probably have a petroleum in some shape or form. You can easily eliminate petroleum based paraffin wax by using a plant based wax like soy, coconut or beeswax.

When you buy something for your home, isn’t it nice to have clean, toxic free product? Soy candles release no known toxins, less soot than paraffin candles, and all of our scents are phthalate and sulphate free.
