5 Reasons Why Soy Candles are better for you.

So you check us on Instagram or find us browsing on our Etsy Shop and wonder why buying soy candles are so popular today. You then wonder why not just get that cheap candle you found on sale on your local market or online retailer.

I think nowadays, especially after spending so much time at home during this quarantine caused by COVID-19, it became more apparent that choosing quality over quantity is more important than ever. When doing your weekly shopping, for example, you would often choose a better alternative for you and your family when it comes to your vegetables (organic) or your favourite brand instead of the more affordable option. You may also find different products if your intentions are to reduce plastic waste for exemple.

So, if we take the time to choose what's best for us in our weekly shopping, surely we can apply the same rules for what brings you comfort in your home, office or wherever you feel like taking the time for yourself.

CANDLES ! A great and important home decor item.

I will list bellow 5 beneficial reasons for you to change the candles you have in your home. It is not so much the benefits that soy wax can bring but avoiding the paraffin wax, which is an invisible toxin we inhale without taking notice.

1. It is better for the environment.

Paraffin is made from the residue leftover from oil refining. While it is a good use of a waste product, it isn't good for your health or the environment. Soy candles will give you no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants. That means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies. And no petro-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles. In conclusion, when buying a candle, SOY is the way to go.

2. It will last longer.

Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. That is only one of many reasons you can justify paying a higher price for a soy candle.

3. Keep your house clean.

The emissions from paraffin candles build up on walls, staining the paint in your home. They also build up in upholstery fabrics and in carpets, affecting the air quality in your home.

4. A better smell.

Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released; there won't be an immediate wave of strong scent. This creates a more pleasant atmosphere for most people.

5. Biodegradable.

Soybeans are naturally biodegradable which makes it easier to clean up a spill.

There you go. I hope I was able to clarify any doubts you may have about Soy Candles. Now, go ahead and look at the wonderful scents we have in our shop.

Thank you for reading this post and until next time.
