Why soy? 
Oh boy, let me tell ya. 
First off, soy wax is made from the soy beans! A renewable and sustainable way to create wax - for many purposes including candles. 
They burn longer, cleaner, and release less co2 than your standard candle. Ethically sourced, cruelty free, water soluble, and biodegradable. 
Ok.. it's time to reveal the candle industry's dark secret. The department store candles are made of paraffin. Which is petroleum. But who could tell, when it has a cheap dye and perfume fragrance to cover it all up? Unfortunately the paraffin chemicals are released into the air and stick to furniture, walls and basically everything and everyone. The chemicals are never really covered up, and gradually create a layer of paraffin soot that eventually can be seen. 
So, next time you're buying candles check the ingredients! If the candle doesn't list a wax type then it is most likely paraffin. Yuck. If the candle does list paraffin, Stay clear. 
Checking for candle ingredients is especially important for those who have breathing and allergy symptoms, as well as for homes with children, elders and pets. 
Besides your health, there are other reasons to choose soy candles and ditch the wally-world and body works candles. Soy candles burn longer, cleaner, and holds a scent better. Which is basically the point of a candle, isn't it? 
I may be a little biased, but what's not to love? Visit our products page for soy candles and wax melts, made with essential oils and traditionally harvested plants like sweetgrass, sage and cedar.
