Choosing to make the candles using soy wax was an easy decision. Soya beans are a renewable source and the wax is naturally bio-degradable, so it is really is an eco-friendly product.
Aside from it's excellent environmental qualities, it is a really lovely product to work with - smooth and creamy, it also smells good in it natural state. Soy wax has excellent fragrance holding qualities whether your candle is lit or not. It burns very slowly, which means that your candle will have a generous burn time.
Essential oils and high quality fragrance are added to the 100% natural soy wax. The wicks are also 100% natural and are designed specifically to burn best in soy wax candles. However, natural cotton wicks will smoke if not burned properly or if the wicks are never trimmed. Therefore to get the most out of your candles, please remember to trim the wick before each use.
Also, candles made of paraffin wax can produce petrol carbon soot and release toxic carcinogens in to the air.
So, to sum up the benefits of soy:-
It is 100% vegetable, made from pure soy bean oil
It burns longer and more cleanly than paraffin wax without soot build up
It is natural, biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides
It is produced without genetically modified material
It is easy to clean up with soap and hot water, eliminating the need for solvents
It is not subject to animal testing
It is a renewable, sustainable resource
As with all candles, please use carefully and follow the safety instructions.
Our candles are handmade using only natural soy wax, fragrance and colour, without other additives, they are quite different from the mass-produced paraffin wax candles available on the market.
