The Benefits of Soy Wax Candles


Candles are an essential item in my home due to their ability to create ambiance, evoke moods, and add a touch of warmth to any space. However, not all candles are created equal, and when it comes to choosing the perfect candle for your home, the type of wax matters. I chose to have our candles made from soy wax due to the numerous benefits. Read on to find out more!


One of the most significant advantages of soy wax candles is their clean-burning nature. Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, soy wax is made from soybean oil, a renewable and sustainable resource. Soy wax candles produce minimal soot and do not release harmful toxins or carcinogens into the air when burned, making them a healthier choice for both you and the environment.


Soy wax candles typically have a longer burn time compared to traditional paraffin wax candles. This is because soy wax has a lower melting point, which means it burns at a cooler temperature and releases fragrance more slowly. Our candles are 20cl and provide up to 40 hours of burn time.

 Soy wax has excellent fragrance-holding qualities, allowing it to evenly distribute scent throughout the entire candle and fill your home with a captivating aroma. Whether you prefer sweet and delicate florals or uplifting and crisp eucalyptus, soy wax candles deliver a consistent and long-lasting scent throw that lingers in the air.
