Why We Use 100% Soy Wax In Our Candles
All our candles are made here in Australia by us, using only 100% Soy Wax. The benefits of Soy Wax far exceed any other candle compound option, however, for those who are unsure about soy wax candles, we are here to make things a little clearer.
Firstly Soy Wax is a vegetable wax derived from soy bean oil while other candle compounds are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, a refined gasoline byproduct (the same stuff you’re fueling your car with!!!) This nonrenewable source contains harmful carcinogenic substances and when lit produces a ‘carbon like soot’ that fills the air we breath and blacken the walls and furniture of your home aghhhhh. While Soybeans are a natural renewable source grown in agricultural regions, making them the safer, natural and cleaner option that isn’t increasing the c02 level Yesssss!!!!!.
Secondly, Soy Wax candles last longer making them more cost effective in the long run. Soy Wax candles burn slower and at a cooler temperature. Soy wax will last 30%-50% longer than a paraffin wax candle.
Thirdly, your getting a better scent overtime from soy wax candles essential oils’. The slower burn means the scent is gradually released and you’re not getting hit with that light headed feeling as soon as you walk into a room. The slow but consistent release from soy wax makes for a more enjoyable experience.
