Why We Are Sticking With Soy Candles in 2023

In 2022 we learned that there are a TON of options out there for candle lovers to choose from but many of the options on the market are made with synthetic fragrances and synthetic wax! In 2018 we made a brand pledge to only use 100% natural soy wax in all of our candles because your health matters.

Not only do our natural candles provide a beautiful and natural scent, they are also better for your health and the environment. Synthetic candles made with paraffin wax can release harmful chemicals into the air when they are burned, which can have negative impacts on your respiratory system.

Natural candles, on the other hand, are made with all-natural ingredients such as essential oils and soy wax, making them a safer and healthier choice for you and your family.

In addition to being better for your health, natural candles are also better for the environment. Many synthetic candles are made with parabens and other harmful chemicals that can have negative impacts on the environment. Organic candles, on the other hand, are made with sustainable and biodegradable materials, making them a more eco-friendly choice.

Not only are natural candles better for your health and the environment, but they also have a longer burn time and a more natural, subtle scent. So why not make the switch to natural candles and enjoy all of the benefits they have to offer? Your health and the environment will thank you.

There are a few reasons why we prefer to use soy wax rather over all the rest:

  1. Soy wax is renewable and sustainable: Soybeans are a renewable resource, and soy wax is made from soybean oil, which can be easily replenished. This makes it an environmentally friendly choice for candle making.

  2. Soy wax is biodegradable: Soy wax is biodegradable, which means it breaks down easily in the environment and does not contribute to pollution.

  3. Soy wax is non-toxic: Soy wax is made from natural materials and does not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins. This makes it a safer choice for people with allergies or sensitivities, as well as for those who are concerned about the environmental impact of their purchases.

  4. Soy wax burns longer and cleaner: Soy wax burns longer and cleaner than other types of wax, such as paraffin wax. This means that soy wax candles have a longer burn time and produce less soot and smoke when burned.

  5. Soy wax is affordable: Soy wax is generally less expensive than other types of natural waxes, such as beeswax. This makes it a cost-effective choice for candle makers.

Overall, soy wax is a popular choice for candle making because it is renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic, and burns longer and cleaner than other types of wax.

Soy candles are now a new obsession for those who are health conscious about their home products. Soy beans are considered a eco-friendly crop due to its numerous environmental benefits.

First and foremost, soy is a renewable resource that can be grown and harvested year after year, making it a sustainable option for food, fuel, and other products. In addition, soybeans require less water and fewer pesticides than many other crops, making them easier on natural resources.

Another key factor in soy's eco-friendliness is its ability to improve soil health. Soybeans are a legume, meaning they have the ability to fix nitrogen in the soil through a symbiotic relationship with nitrogen-fixing bacteria. This process helps to improve soil fertility, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers, which can have negative environmental impacts.

Finally, soy can be used to replace products that are less sustainable or environmentally friendly. For example, soy-based plastics and biodegradable plastics made from soybean oil can be used as an alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastics, which are non-renewable and contribute to pollution. Soy-based products such as candles, ink, and lubricants can also be used as substitutes for products made from fossil fuels.

Overall, the many uses and environmental benefits of soy make it a valuable and eco-friendly resource. We are proud to source our our wax from American farmers. Rigorous testing is conducted on every batch to ensure a long scent throw and a clean burn.
