The Benefits of Soy Wax Candles and Where to Buy Ecoya Candles and Diffusers Online in Australia

When most people think of candles, they think of traditional candles made with paraffin wax. However, there’s another – better – option: soy wax candles. These candles are made of a vegetable wax extracted from soybeans. After harvesting, the soybeans are then cleaned and dehulled so that the oil can be extracted and hydrogenated. During this process, the natural unsaturated fatty acids become saturated, which affects the melting point of the oil and allows it to solidify at room temperature.

Why soy wax candles?

There are numerous reasons to choose soy wax candles over traditional candles. Some of these include:

  • Cleaner burning: Soy wax candles contain no pollutants, carcinogens, or other toxins; they are also much less likely to trigger allergies than traditional paraffin candles
  • Better value: Soy wax burns cooler, which means that your candles will last significantly longer than regular candles
  • Biodegradable: These candles are literally made of soybeans, which means they’re naturally biodegradable and eco-friendly; they also make use of a natural, renewable resource
  • Water soluble: Accidental spills are much easier to clean up than paraffin wax

Soy wax vs paraffin

The vast majority of candles made today are made of paraffin wax, primarily because it costs less. Paraffin is the leftover by-product of refining petroleum. Many people are not aware that paraffin, when burned, can release harmful soot that discolours furniture and ceilings, contaminates ventilation systems, and may even cause serious health problems. Indeed, paraffin candles contain known carcinogens, making them not only a widespread health problem but a moral problem as well. It’s time to make a move toward safer, cleaner, healthier candles – and soy wax provides the perfect alternative. Soy wax candles contain no carcinogens and no petroleum, and most soy wax candles use only natural paper, hemp, or cotton in their wicks, making them a much better choice for today’s candle lover.

Safe care and burning of soy wax candles

Candles are 100% safe – when used correctly. Anytime you are burning candles; you should trim the wicks before lighting. Never leave a burning candle unattended and never burn candles on or near anything flammable (such as drapes or bedding). Keep your candles away from pets and children and away from vents, fans, and drafts. Keep your soy wax free from debris, matches, and wick trimmings and never move a candle when it is burning or when the wax is still liquid. Following these basic care and safety tips can help you get the most out of your candles and enjoy them safely for a long time to come.
