About Soy Candles  Soy Candles add beautiful elegance, fragrance and most importantly they do not harm the air you are breathing. Soy candles are becoming increasingly popular across the nation. Most other candles are not made with soy, but with paraffin. People were not previously aware of the dangers of paraffin candles and how paraffin candles can be harmful to your health. Paraffin candles release toxins such as: formaldehyde, acrolein, benzene, and acetaldehyde. Did you know that according to the EPA, paraffin wax has 11 known toxins and in the above cancer risk category, 2 are above the excess cancer risk with multiple use. That is pretty scary. Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product and thank GOD soy candles are replacing paraffin candles all over the United States and abroad. Soy candles are healthier for you and the environment!
If you’re a candle lover, you’ve probably burned paraffin candles and noticed the effects of paraffin or petrochemical based candles in your home. When you light a paraffin candle you may notice that there is black smoke that emits from the wick. It stains the jar or candle holder and, after burning a paraffin candle for long periods of time a paraffin candle can even stain your walls, air vents, ceiling and other areas of your home. If you sit too close to burning paraffin candles, you may even notice a bit of soot accumulating on your skin or clothes, or in particle-collecting areas of your body such as your nostrils. You may experience headaches and even nausea when burning paraffin candles. And if you think that’s bad, just think of how it must look in your lungs. Consumers are taking charge of their health by burning soy candles instead. Many of us know about the traditional benefits of soy wax: soy candles burn clean, last longer and burn soot free. Soy candles burn so cleanly and safely because soy wax has a lower melting point than the paraffin wax that is used in traditional candles. This means that soy candles burn cooler, as well as up to 50% longer. Cooler burning means a longer burn time, which means more bang for your buck. Now, it is true that soy candles burn clean, last longer, and are soot free but what else is going into the soy candles you are burning ? Do all soy candles smell incredible? Remember all soy candles are not created equal, you must know about the company's manufacturing process, and ingredients used. Just because you are burning a "soy candle" does not mean they are going to smell incredible and are the healthiest choice for you.
