Scented Soy Wax Candles - A Greener Alternative
Many people are turning to scented soy candles as an alternative to paraffin wax because of their environmental benefits. These reusable and eco-friendly candles do not give off soot, are non-toxic, and are easy to clean up if they spill.
Soy wax, like any candle wax, is a renewable resource that can be harvested year-round from soybeans grown in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana. Soy candles are a great choice for those who want to support American farmers and are a healthier, more environmentally friendly option than paraffin wax products.
How Soy Candles Are Made
Soy candle wax is made from the oil extracted from soybeans and other natural oils. It can be blended with fragrance oils to create the scent that you see in the glass containers of scented soy candles.
The first step is to remove the hulls from the beans, and then run them through a mill that breaks them up into smaller pieces. The flakes of soy are then put through a process called hydrogenation, which allows them to solidify into wax.
This wax can then be used to make a variety of things, from soaps to cosmetics to candles. However, it is most often used for making scented soy candles and candle melts.
Soy Candles Burn Cleanly
Soy candles are cleaner-burning candles because they are natural wax that has a lower melting point than other types of wax, such as paraffin. The lower melting point means that soy wax can melt in a larger area, which allows the essential oils to spread out and be released into the air more effectively. This helps to emit a stronger and more pleasant fragrance than other waxes.
These candles also burn much slower than paraffin wax, so you will be able to enjoy the scent of your favorite soy candle for a longer time. They also last longer than other types of wax, which can save you money over time.
The scents from soy candles are also more natural and fresh, which makes them a good choice for those with allergies or sensitivities. They are also a great choice for those who prefer natural and organic products, because they do not contain synthetic ingredients or other chemicals that are harmful to the environment.
Some people are concerned about the dyes in soy candles, but these are usually made using natural dyes that are safe to inhale. You can find soy wax candles in a range of colors, but be sure to check the label to be sure they are made from natural and safe ingredients.
Dyes that are not made from natural or organic ingredients can be toxic and should be avoided. It is also important to be aware of the amount of soy used in a soy candle and the percentage of essential oils it contains.
Another important thing to keep in mind is the temperature at which you add your fragrance oils. The higher the temperature, the more quickly the evaporation will occur. It is best to err on the side of caution and stick with 175°F to 185°F when adding fragrance.
