Why Soy?

The other guys...

Most candles are made from paraffin wax.  Paraffin wax is a petroleum byproduct, and once I realized this information, the reality of why my asthma was worse when burning those candles and wax melts all made sense.  The petrol-carbon soot, high in chemicals, is going right into your nose and all over your walls and ceiling!  

 

Soy is better...

The soy wax used in my products is made from 100% US grown soybeans.  While I can't say the wax is organic (it's just not possible with wax,) I can say that it is free from genetically modified materials, pesticides, herbicides, and stabilizers.  I also do not use palm wax or beeswax.  

While paraffin wax does give you a stronger scent throw, soy wax will give you a more gentle, natural fragrance.  

Soy wax gives you a longer burn, since it melts at a cooler temperature.  You can enjoy soy wax candles and melts for generally 30-50% longer than paraffin.  By switching to soy wax, you are supporting our American farmers, instead of foreign oil conglomerates.  

My wicks are made of 100% cotton and are free from any lead.  Can you believe that's still a thing?!
