Are soy candles safer? What are the benefits of soy candle benefits? 

Are soy candles really better and should you be using soy candles instead? The answer is yes, and I will explain why and 8 benefits of soy candles.

Candles are amazing to have for a variety of reasons.  Candles are made from different sources, many of them being unnatural and not healthy. 100% soy candles are the best option for candle lovers, and the most eco friendly and sustainable. Check out my collection of farmhouse soy candles where only 100% natural, clean, and eco friendly ingredients are used for a non toxic candle that still has a powerful scent throw. 

Don't let big brands and companies trick you though.  It needs to be 100% soy wax, not just a 'soy blends'.  Many big brands like bath and body works and Target, have candles that say "soy blend", or do not say the ingredients at all. But you when you look at the ingredients list, paraffin wax is the main one.

Check out my TikTok video for some of the extremely toxic ingredients found in bath and body works candles.   

Paraffin wax is made from petroleum, like the one you put you in your car!  So needless to say, its very harmful for your home, your health, and the environment. Its like starting a a diesel truck in your home.

Here are 8 benefits I love about our small businesses’ 100% soy candles and why they are the best and safest choice when you are purchasing a candle.

1. Its natural and safe for your home. 

2. Eco-friendly, sustainable and a renewable resource. (grown my American Farmers)

3. Burns Cleaner with little to no soot (if you keep the wicks trimmed and burn it properly)

4.It Lasts at least 50% longer than other waxes (because of its lower melting point)

5. Stronger scent because of its clean, non-toxic burn. Soy wax holds scent better. 

6. It’s the best choice for the environment. Farmers use the leftover soy bean for animal feed. 
7. It supports our local economy.

8. It doesn’t bother asthma or allergies.
