Why Do We Use Soy Wax In Our Candles?

Why Do We Use Soy Wax In Our Candles?

We LOVE using clean burning midwest-grown soy wax in our candles. Most of our candles are made of soy and beeswax. Why soy wax?

Soy wax is a popular choice for candle making for several reasons:

  1. Natural and renewable: Soy wax is made from soybeans, which are a renewable resource. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

  2. Clean burning: Soy wax burns cleaner than other waxes, producing less soot and reducing indoor air pollution.

  3. Long burning: Soy wax has a lower melting point than other waxes, which means it burns more slowly and lasts longer.

  4. Scent retention: Soy wax has excellent scent throw, meaning it can hold onto fragrance oils and essential oils well, resulting in a stronger and longer-lasting scent.

Overall, soy wax is a versatile and eco-friendly choice for candle making that produces high-quality candles with excellent scent throw and long burn times. We hope you love our soy wax candles! You can find them at www.1111elm.com
