Choose All Natural Soy Candles
Our ancestors used candlelight to read by, to do their chores by or to find their way around their house. Today, we light candles to create ambiance, scent the air, decorate a birthday cake or just relax in a room filled with the soft glow of candle light. Our lives are hectic and uncertain and the calming familiarity of flickering candles can make the end of the day melt away. Choosing all natural soy candles to burn is an Eco-friendly and non-toxic way to enjoy this timeless tradition.
Soy candles were created in the 1990’s by a man looking for a better, cleaner alternative to paraffin based candles. He found that soybeans could be processed into oil and when hardened into a wax it proved to burn more cleanly, came from a renewable resource and emitted no toxins into the air when burnt. From a crop of soybeans, you can get milk to drink, tofu and edamame to eat, fuel for your car, ink to print newspapers and now relax in a tub full of bubbles in the glow of a scented soy bean candle.
Paraffin has long been the most common source for Artisanal Hand Poured Soy Candles . It is a petroleum-based product and when burned, produces soot and releases toxins into the air. Soy is 100% biodegradable, contains no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and burns very cleanly. Soy wax candles can take more fragrance than paraffin based candles and will provide a consistent scent throughout the life of your soy candle. Scented soy candles will add a subtle treat to any space.
Soy candles are an all around America product. We start with all the U.S. Farmers who grow these sustainable soy bean crops. Next it’s the many local chandlers who hand pour their distinctive soy wax candles. Then it’s on to you and me, the American consumers, who choose soy candles for their artistry and Eco-friendly benefits. Soy based products are renewable, environmentally responsible and help us reduce our carbon footprint.
All natural soy candles are a unique addition to your home or office. Take an opportunity to explore the benefits of soy candles and include them in your home and family environment. You will find that burning a soybean candle will inspire a mood, spark any occasion and will permeate the air with colorful fragrances.
