Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown by local farmers. Soy wax is non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn. Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often.
A soy candle works well for holding onto the scent from essential oils, which are often used to scent candles. If you are looking for candles that benefits the environment, while providing a lovely long lasting scent throughout your home, then you have found the right place.
