Why do you use soy wax and not paraffin?


Soy vs Paraffin Candles

Using soy wax candles is a great way to help our environment and our farmers!

Unlike paraffin wax, natural soy wax comes from right here in the USA from our own soybean farmers.

So in addition to using a completely natural soy wax that is safe for you, is a renewable, sustainable resource, and gives us a little less dependence on crude oil, it also helps our own US economy by helping our farmers.

You’ll also find that soy candles burn up to twice as long as paraffin candles. This is because soy wax has a much lower melting point and in turn, burns cooler than paraffin wax.

So even though soy candles might be more expensive, they burn up to twice as long as regular candles so it actually evens out and you really aren’t spending much more for a better quality candle.

With soy candles, you will also get little to no soot when burned properly and soy wax is much easier to clean up if spilled! Just take a little soap and water and possibly a hair dryer and- Whala! No more hard, dried paraffin wax that may take scissors to cut it out of the carpet!   (I won’t guarantee the dye won’t stain if there is dye in the candle).
