In recent years, more and more of us are becoming mindful of the products we seek and bring into our life's. We are more mindful about what we choose to bring into our homes thereby ensuring we are embracing natural and sustainable products. The things we have tend to be a reflection on who we are and what we want to achieve.
The ingredients I use in my candles are very important to me and do reflect the natural clean and sustainability I would want in my home and therefore want to provide in your homes. So I thought I would share with you a few of the reasons why I love to use and choose to only use Natural Soy Wax in the candles I make.
Going back to living seasonal and inspired by nature, I love using Soy Wax in the Candles I make, they are made from Soybeans, which is a natural sustainable source, grown on land Using Soy Wax Candles supports agriculture and renewable businesses and adopts a nature inspired ethos.
Soy Wax burns cleaner. What does this mean? It means that the black soot you can get from cheaper paraffin candles doesn't normally appear ( you may get a little bit but not really noticeable!) There will also be no pooling around the edge of the candle as the wax burns cleaner and evenly so it should avoid the harsh funnel like aesthetic
Soy Wax is also non toxic, so when they burn they will not release any bad toxins into the air in your homes. These could be carcinogens or pollutants which are icky and not nice, and it can also mean it is less likely to trigger allergies. Soy Wax is also biodegradable, which really helps the environment around us.
Soy Wax candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. 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.
Better Even Scent
A Soy Wax Candle will release the scent slowly over a longer time. What happens is the Soy Wax holds onto the fragrance or essential oils and ensures an even. Try and avoid artificial type scents like 'candyfloss or cookies' as these scents tend to be full of 'ickies' and do not tend to blend well will Soy wax ( Although if you love them go for it it is your choice!) I love using seasonal and nature inspired scents e.g fresh, fruity, floral, wood which are perfect scents to support a natural environment, relaxation and mood lifting.
Another useful fact is that because soy wax burns slower as mentioned above, the scent will gradually be released longer creating a much more even fragrance aroma and atmosphere.
The benefits of using Soy Wax are huge and it is something that I love to do. I love the aesthetic look of it, the smooth soft white flaky wax is so lovely to touch and feel in your hands and you can even rub it onto your skin raw if you want a smoother looking glow. I take a ethical approach to my business, taking into consideration the sustainability and natural atmosphere that I enjoy so much. I hope that you can see the benefits too as create your own perfect sense of Soy wax Cosy Haven wherever you are.
