"Buying American Grown Soy Wax Candles supports the American Soybean Farmers & Workers across our great country."
Unlike store-bought paraffin candles made from petroleum, our soy candles are made from soybeans, which is a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner with little soot released as the
candle burns. Paraffin candles create significantly more black soot and according to The Daily Green, will send harmful carcinogenic substances into the air and onto the surfaces inside of your home. And, the soy supports agriculture, and are grown by local farmers, allowing them to make money and grow their operations.
Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.
A soy candle holds onto the scent from essential & fragrance oils, which are used to scent candles. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually, and slowly released. The natural wax also holds onto color well, which makes it look more attractive.
