Benefits of Soy Wax Candles

  • Broadly speaking, wax is a flammable carbon-containing solid that becomes liquid when heated above room temperature. In other words, it is the fuel for candles. When scented candles are lit, the wax melts, evaporates and burns, thereby generating heat and light. Almost all types of oil can be turned into wax, which provides many options for candle use.

    Compared with traditional paraffin wax, soy wax is generally considered to be more environmentally friendly, burns slower, cleaner (less soot), and cheaper than other waxes.

    Soy wax candles usually give off a subtle fragrance, because soy wax does not have that much fragrance-many people like this softer fragrance, but it boils down to how delicate your nose is! We will discuss the complexity of everyone's odor system in a future blog post.

    Soy candles have been around for a long time, and soy wax was not invented until 1996. Soy wax is a vegetable wax extracted from soybean oil. In order to obtain oil, the harvested soybeans are washed, dehulled, crushed and pressed into flakes. The oil is then extracted from these flakes and hydrogenated, in the process, the unsaturated fatty acids present in the oil are saturated. This changes the melting point of the oil so that it solidifies at room temperature and is ready to be used to make candles.

    Soy wax is generally considered to have the longest burning time, but every year new ingredients are used to create new and improved candle wax forms, which make the candle burn even slower.

    Natural waxes, such as soybeans, rapeseed, coconut and beeswax, are the best choice for those who want candles to burn cleanly without worrying about indoor air pollution. There are even reports that beeswax can actually help clarify the air.

    If you start to feel discomfort while burning a candle or after accidentally ingesting wax, we strongly recommend seeking medical care-it may be that you are allergic to one or more of the ingredients used in the candle. Pets should also be extra careful-dogs and cats may find that certain ingredients in scented candles are toxic. If you accidentally consume the candles and develop symptoms, you should take your pet to the vet.
