The Scoop on Soy
Soy candles are the eco-friendly solution to traditional petroleum based paraffin. Since its invention in 1992, Soy Wax candles have quickly become the choice of environmentally conscious consumers. Here's why:
Soy Wax is made from hydrogenated soybean oil. Crafted from American grown soybeans, it is a biodegradable & renewable resource that supports the farmer.
The burning of soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the air.
Soy candles produce 90% less soot than paraffin. Soy burns cleaner & cooler and is less likely to trigger allergies in children & pets due to the absence of toxins.
Soy candles last 50% longer than paraffin candles.
Scented soy candles distribute more fragrance. The low melting point of soy wax results in a larger wax pool that distributes fragrance faster.
Wax spills are easily cleaned up with soap & hot water.
To help your Soy Candle Last Its Longest:
Establish it's memory. ( No, I'm not making this up!)
A soy candle should burn 1 hour for each inch of its diameter until you establish a full melt pool. For example: A 2" diameter candle should burn uniterrupted for 2 hours on the first burn to establish it's memory. Without a proper memory burn, the wick will burn a tunnel down the center and cause a poor scent throw.
A lit candle should always be within your sight. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep candles out of reach of children & pets.
