What is soy wax?
First, let's start with what soy wax is . A soy candle is made from soy wax, a natural, renewable and biodegradable product derived from soybean oil.
After the oil is extracted from the beans, it is processed and hydrogenated to form a solid, creamy wax, which serves as the base for this candle. When combined with wicks, fragrances and pigments, it creates the soy candles we use.

Attention : When burned in the right way, soy wax can last up to 50 hours! Prefer 3-hour burns so that the entire surface is heated.
Soy Wax – Benefits
After talking about soy wax and the scents you can choose, let's see what its advantages are.
A soy candle has a number of benefits, making it an attractive choice for many candle lovers. Here are some of the reasons why:
As it comes from soybeans, soy wax is a natural and renewable resource, unlike paraffin, which is produced from petroleum.
#2 Longer burn time
Soy wax burns more slowly and cooler than paraffin wax, which means that soy wax will usually last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size.
#3 Clean burn
Soy wax produces less soot than paraffin candles, resulting in cleaner burning and less indoor air pollution.
#4 Strong fragrance
The lower melting point of soy wax allows for a larger reservoir of liquid wax, which in turn helps disperse the fragrance oils more effectively, providing a stronger, more consistent scent throughout the life of the candle.
Soy Wax vs Paraffin Wax
While paraffin candles have been a traditional choice for many years, soy candles are increasingly seen as a better alternative.
The main difference lies in their composition. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, a non-renewable resource that produces harmful byproducts when burned.
On the other hand, soy candles , as we mentioned, are made from soybeans, a renewable resource, and burn cleaner and longer.
Additionally, the soot produced by burning paraffin candles can leave a residue on walls, furniture and fabrics, while the minimal soot from soy candles does not.
Additionally, soy candles usually come in glass or tin containers that can be reused or recycled, making them an even greener choice.
How to create the right atmosphere with soy candles
Creating a pleasant atmosphere in your home or workplace is important for mental well-being, and soy candles can play an important role in this process.
Not only do they provide soft, flickering light that adds a certain calmness to any space, but the variety of fragrances available also makes it possible to adjust the atmosphere to your preferences.
When it comes to creating a relaxing atmosphere, the scent of a candle is vital. With soy candles, you are in for a treat.
Their ability to hold and release scent is superior compared to traditional candles, leading to a more pleasant and long-lasting scent.
In fact, in a previous article we presented in detail how you can choose the right scented candle for each room.
