Why Soy Candles?

- Cleaner burning – no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it’s less likely to trigger allergies. No petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
- Longer lasting – soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. Meaning less expense for you!
- Biodegradable and water soluble. Since our candles are made out of soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills easier to clean.
