Enhancing your home with natural soy wax candles

When it comes to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home, nothing beats the gentle flicker and comforting glow of a candle. Candles transform your mood and overall environment.

Candles have long held a special place in our lives, providing us with both illumination and ambiance. Over the years, candle enthusiasts and manufacturers have experimented with various materials to create the perfect candle. One such innovation is soy wax. These type of candles have grown in popularity recently as a substitute for paraffin and beeswax. They're made from hydrogenated soybean oil, making them a natural and renewable resource.

What is soy wax?


soybeans for making soy candles


Soy wax is a naturally derived wax made from soybeans. After soybeans are harvested they are cleaned, dehulled, cracked, and rolled into flecks. Oil is extracted from the flecks and hydrogenated. The hydrogenated soybean oil is then transformed into a solid substance. The solid form is then used as a base for making candles and various other wax products.

This natural wax is versatile and can be used to make various products, including candles, wax melts, and personal care items like lotions and lip balms. It is also a favorite of many candle makers due to its smooth texture, excellent scent throw, and easy-to-use nature.

Benefits of soy wax candles

  1. Natural and sustainable

Soy wax candles are non-toxic and cleaner-burning, being made with no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants, which means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies. As a vegetable-based wax, it does not give off any harmful byproducts or produce black soot that can stain walls and curtains like the other leading waxes. Soy wax candles are also vegan-friendly, as they don't contain any animal products or by-products.

  1. Environmentally friendly and easy cleanup

Soy wax candles are a renewable resource, as soybeans are readily available and easy to cultivate.

Spills and drips from soy wax are easy to clean up with just soap and water, unlike paraffin wax, which can leave behind stubborn stains.

  1. Longer burning time

Soy wax candles have a lower melting point than both paraffin and beeswax, which means that they burn for longer and more evenly. This means you'll get more hours of enjoyment from a single candle, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.

Soy wax candles, as a natural wax, usually have a higher price point than paraffin or other similar candles, which can be a turnoff for people on a budget. But since the wax burns for longer, the higher price often evens out—win-win.

  1. A symphony of fragrances

If you love scented candles, you'll be pleased to know that soy wax candles offer a better scent throw than paraffin candles. The scent in soy wax disperses more evenly and effectively, creating a pleasant and consistent aroma in your space. Whether you prefer floral, fruity, or earthy scents, soy wax candles will provide a more satisfying olfactory experience.

  1. Enhanced mood and emotional well-being
