Best Soy Candles
Benefits of Handmade, natural Soy Candles
Traditional candles have been purchased and used through history for so long that most people do not stop to consider what they are made from, or how these ingredients could be affecting them or the environment. Unfortunately, many can be full of unnecessary chemicals that are released into the air each time you light your favorite candle.
There is no need to give up candles, though, don't worry! You can simply find a healthy alternative. Read below for the benefits you will experience when you switch to handmade vegan soy candles.
Natural and Renewable Ingredients
Soy wax is derived from soybeans, and soybeans can be continuously grown. Soy is widely available and not endangered. Using soy wax not only helps the environment but it can also support local farmers.
Soy wax burns at a much cooler temperature, so it takes much more time to burn out. Kake soy candles burn anywhere from 20-50 hours!
Hold Scent and Color Well
As soy burns more slowly than paraffin, both the scent and the color also take longer to burn off. The scent comes in gradual, more subtle waves as opposed to a strong smell that quickly disappears.
Easy Clean Up
Soy is easier to clean than paraffin wax if it spills. While paraffin usually requires some scraping, soy is soft enough to be cleaned up with a little soap and hot water.
Unlike their paraffin-based counterparts, the best soy candles produce very little soot. This, of course, makes the candle stay looking better for longer. It also means that you and your loved ones are not breathing in the harmful soot.
