If you haven’t had the chance to try burning soy wax instead of traditional paraffin, you could be missing out on a host of benefits for your nose, your wallet, and your health. In fact, burning soy wax in a wax melt or candle form is a much better option than traditional paraffin for many reasons. Find out why below!
1. Soy wax is natural
Derived from the soybean, soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature. After they are harvested, the beans are cleaned, cracked, dehulled, and rolled into flakes. Soy wax contains nothing artificial, which makes it a better alternative to old-fashioned paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum oil and produces harmful by-products when burned or melted. Soy wax is non-toxic making it better both for the environment and your health!
2. Soy candles have a more potent heady fragrance throw than paraffin wax candles
