Au contraire! Soy candles are generating a lot of buzz right now because of the major advantages they offer to your health and home.
According to The Daily Green, commonly used paraffin candles are made from petroleum, a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. These substances can be released into the air unlike soy candles which are non-toxic.
What's great about soy candles is that they are natural and made from soybeans which ARE a renewable source that is grown by farmers. Making the switch to soy not only supports agriculture, but it also supports local farmers and helps them continue to run their show.
But how are they good for my home?
You know those black marks that magically appear on your wall when burning your favorite candle? Yah, that's soot. Soy wax burns cleaner preventing that from happening and preventing your candle holder from looking unpresentable in those #Instagram photos and stories.
According to Live Strong, soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size because of the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax.
Yes these guys are more expensive, but you get what you pay for and you won't have to buy a new candle every 24 hours AND you're saving the environment!
Look, we don't have to convince you! The next time you're sniffing a paraffin wax candle, smell a soy candle with the same scent. Guess which one smells WAY better? The soy candle. Soy candles are proven to hold onto the scent from essential oils significantly better giving off a gradual aroma rather than an immediate burst of fragrance.
