Are you going for a candlelight dinner with your loved one? Are you trying to level up your decor? Want some meditation with a good fragrance? Candles are the first thing that comes to your mind. Earlier, the prime use of candles was for illumination purposes. Paraffin wax is the main component of these beautiful candles. These candles have wicks attached to them. The lighting of the wick evaporates the paraffin wax, and the light stays until the wax melts completely. Sadly, paraffin wax is a chemical from hydrocarbons and petroleum byproducts that is artificial and toxic. Fortunately, soy wax candles come to your extricate.

In Australia, the candle sector had seen a rise in sales by 105% during the coronavirus crisis. Soy candles are the best to use to give you all the positive vibes you require. Soy wax candles are from the wax extracted from the soybeans. The soy candle making involves harvesting, cleaning the bean, cracking, de-hulling and flakes production. The manufacturers use these flakes in soybean oil production. The oil is then hydrogenated to produce soy wax. This bio wax is solid at room temperature and melts while heated. Soy candles give you an environment-friendly and divine feel to your heart. And here are some of its benefits,

 

Long-lasting

Soy wax candles are long-lasting candles and thus burner longer than paraffin wax candles. One can enjoy the scent of these candles for a much longer time. These waxes burn uniformly and slowly. This is possible due to its feature of low melting point.

Longer fragrance

Due to the low melting point of soy, these candles tend to have a longer scent. The type of scent depends on the essential oil used.

Friendly burning

Soy candles produce less smoke. Less smoke usually gives a cleaner burn. Even a candle smoke sensitive person can go easy with these candles. These are people-friendly candles. They provide less indoor pollution. They are safer for children, toddlers and pets than paraffin wax. They are also friendly to furniture, walls and ceilings. They are stain free.

Less mess

These candles produce less mess and are easy to clean. One can directly clean it with a block of soap and hot water instead of harsh chemicals. Using strong chemicals to clean the mess in the candle holder or your date table cloth can damage them.

Happy vegan lovers

 Some soy candles are from 100% organic non-GMO soy oil, as expected by vegan people. Since soy is a renewable source, it makes the soy candles completely bio-degradable and sustainable. 

The perfect candle for a dinner date

These are perfect candles for your candlelight dinner.

They produce 90 per cent less soot compared to paraffin candles. Their aroma does not interfere with the odour of your tasty food and does not irritate. Their fragrance is subtle and does not overrule food fragrances.

Less heat

Whenever one thinks of candles, the first thing that comes to mind is their beauty and the second thing is the heat. Nobody wants to sit with a candle emitting a lot of heat after a tiring sunny beach time. Soy wax has a low melting point; they burn at low temperature. Thus, they do not produce much heat.

Green candles

Paraffin candle production involves petroleum products thereby, depleting fossil fuels. These fossil fuels are non-renewable resources and take many years to form again. Soy wax candles are from renewable sources (the soybean) and green alternatives for paraffin candles.

Soy candles care and storage.

One should take care of the candles so that they last longer. These candles can stand for 2-3 hours, so do not use them more than this time for good efficiency. Also, candle lovers recommend the first burn of any candles for even burning. Soy candles can become soft at 25 degrees centigrade and above. Keep soy candles away from sunlight. It is always better to keep them within a closed box. Keeping them covered avoids building up dust on them.
