You love your pets, but sometimes their smell leaves much to be desired. When you choose candles to help freshen your home, what characteristics do you look for? You probably want a candle that burns clean, one that lasts a long time and provides a clean, fresh scent. In the debate between natural soy wax candles and traditional paraffin wax, soy wins every time.
Soy Candles are Natural
Paraffin wax is a petroleum product made from nonrenewable resources. Conversely, soybeans, the key ingredient in soy wax, are a natural resource grown by farmers in the US. The product is also biodegradable so leftover wax doesn’t hurt the environment. Using soy wax candles helps support local farmers and the environment.
Soy Candles Burn Cleaner
Have you ever noticed the black soot that collects on the jar of paraffin wax candles? It makes sense that an oil-based wax would produce soot, but why would you want that in the air you breathe? Soy candles generate a much smaller amount of this sooty byproduct. The wax itself is also non-toxic, keeping the air cleaner for you and your pets.
Soy Candles Last Longer
Soy wax burns slower than paraffin because it burns at a cooler temperature, meaning soy wax candles last longer. Because of this, when comparing the price of paraffin and soy wax candles, you should compare burn times, not candle size.
Soy Candles Have a Better Scent
Thanks to the slower, cooler burn of soy wax candles, they gradually release their scent. This results in a pleasant, even fragrance throughout your home.
Clearly, when faced with the choice of paraffin or soy wax, the benefits of natural soy candles are clear: soy is a more environmentally friendly choice that burns cleaner, lasts longer and smells better. Help you and your pet breathe easy by choosing natural soy wax candles over paraffin every time.
