When we decided we wanted to make candles it was clear to us that soy wax was the obvious choice. There are five reasons that soy wax is better than the paraffin and vegetable wax used in most candles that are purchased at mass retailers.
1.Soy wax is natural.
2.Soy is cleaner. The wax produces less soot. The cleaner burn reduces indoor air pollution.
This makes for a cleaner and healthier home.
3.Soy wax has a lower melting point, it doesn’t get as hot as other wax. This makes it safer and reduces the risk of burns.
4.Soy is biodegradable and better for the environment! 5.Soy is sustainable! Soybeans are a renewable resource.
Roger and I put so much thought behind every step once we decided we wanted to find a way to reuse bourbon bottles and turn them into high quality candles. Once we started researching we knew soy was the best choice!
