The Benefits of Soy

Do you wonder why R1:99/Eden Products uses soy wax exclusively in our candle production? Let me explain.

Soy candles are a great choice for those who are health-conscious and environmentally aware. They are non-toxic and do not emit any harmful chemicals when burned, making them a safer alternative to traditional candles. For these reasons, soy-wax candles have gained popularity in recent years.

Derived from soybeans, a renewable and biodegradable resource, soy candles are known for their clean burning properties. Unlike paraffin wax, soy wax does not emit carcinogens. They are known to burn slower and longer than paraffin candles with less mess.

Soy wax makes a wonderful medium for fragrant candle scents. Imagine this classic holiday scent -hot apple pie. This scrumptious fragrance starts with classic pie spices including cinnamon and clove and adds a hint of almond, vanilla, and a caramel drizzle. This candle is not just great during the holidays but is delightful at any time of year. We also offer a candle - the fragrance of distinct, rich, and sensual leather with soft and earthy saffron top notes layered on gentle incense. Are your fragrance buds excited? These examples should entice you with the wonderful scents of slow burning soy candles. Speaking of slow burning…

When it comes to burn time, soy candles generally last longer than traditional (paraffin) candles. The burn time of a soy candle depends on the amount of wax it contains. For instance, an 8 oz soy candle burns for approximately 40 hours. It is best to burn soy candles for no more than 4 hours at a time to avoid soot collection and prevent wick damage. You can expect to get 20 hours of enjoyment from one of our 4 oz candles. This means that each ounce of soy candle translates to about 5 hours of burn time. The wooden wicks that are used in Eden products burn more slowly (be sure to check out our blog post about wicks), so for those candles you can expect even more burn time.

Our soy candles are prepared in sample batches where we test the three main components of candle-making: wax, wick, and scent. We test until we find the perfect match that ensures our buyers gain the greatest joy and satisfaction from the quality and scent of the candle, in addition to the optimum burn time.

In conclusion, soy wax candles are a great choice for those who are looking for a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional candles. They are non-toxic, biodegradable, and have a longer burn time than traditional candles. So, the next time you are shopping for candles, consider choosing Eden Products soy wax candles for a cleaner and safer experience.
