The Benefits of Soy Candles

In the recent years, you may have been hearing more about soy candles and about them being non-toxic or clean-burning, but what does it all mean?

For the past several months, my mom and I have been making 100% natural soy wax candles and we enjoy creating quality products for customers. Today, I'll share with you the benefits of soy candles.


First, let's get some definitions out of the way. 

Soy wax: Candles made from soy wax are considered non-toxic. Soy is natural and derived from soybeans.

Paraffin-Free: Candles that do not contain paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum.

Lead-Free Wicks: Wicks without lead. In the past, some candle wicks contained lead, which could release toxic fumes when burned.

Phthalate-Free Fragrances: Many scented candles contain phthalates, which is a chemical that can be harmful. Non-toxic candles often use phthalate-free fragrances for a safer burning experience.

Clean burning: Describes candles that produce minimal soot and do not release harmful pollutants into the air. Soy wax candles are known for clean-burning properties.

The Benefits of Soy Candles

Now that we have the definitions out of the way, you can start seeing how beneficial soy candles are, but here are more ways that soy candles can be beneficial. 


1. Soy Candles are Cleaner Burning

Soy candles burn more cleanly, reducing the risk of indoor air pollution in your home and around your family. This makes soy candles safe to burn around your family and your cats, dogs, or even fish.


2. Soy Candles have Longer burning time

Since soy candles tend to have longer burning time, this can provide better value for your money. 


3. Soy Candles are Non-Toxic

As mentioned before, soy candles are non-toxic. Soy wax is a natural and non-toxic substance. Instead of being made with petroleum like paraffin candles, soy candles are made from soybeans.


4. Buying Soy Wax Supports Farmers

Choose soy candles supports soybean farmers. Supporting farmers and specifically local farmers provide support for the local economy, which can greatly impact a city and community.



These are some of the benefits of soy candles and definitions to help you navigate the jargon around soy candles and clean-burning candles. Soy candles are cleaner burning, longer burning, non-toxic, and buying soy wax candles helps support farmers. As my mom and I continue to make soy candles, I will continue to share the benefits and more.
