The right choice
Creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home is important for both your physical and emotional well-being. One simple way to do this is by burning candles. Not only do candles provide soft lighting, but they also have the ability to fill your home with a wide range of fragrances, from fresh and clean scents to warm and cozy aromas. But not all candles are created equal, and when it comes to choosing a candle, it’s important to consider the type of wax that is used.
Let’s take a look at the differences between soy and paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a byproduct of the petroleum industry, and is made from a mixture of hydrocarbons. Yuck I don’t wanna breathe that. Do you?
Soy wax, on the other hand, is made from soybeans and is a natural, renewable resource.
When it comes to burning candles, the biggest benefit of soy wax is that it is non-toxic. Paraffin wax candles, when burned, release harmful toxins into the air. These toxins are the reason some people get headaches while candles are burning.
Soy wax candles, on the other hand, burn cleanly and release no harmful chemicals, making it a safer choice for your family and friends.
