4 Benefits of Hand-Poured Soy Candles

Scented candles are some of the best gifts you can buy for your loved ones, and Wicked Sense makes wonderful hand-poured soy candles. Not only do our candles at Wicked Sense smell absolutely wonderful, they help eliminate odors. Whether you have a pet or you frequently cook, it’s convenient to have an odor-eliminating candle nearby so your space can smell fresh and clean. What are the benefits of using soy candles?

Renewable Source

Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which contains carcinogens and is a nonrenewable resource. This means that every time you burn a paraffin candle, you are releasing carcinogens. However, soy candles are made from soybeans, which is a renewable energy source grown by farmers throughout the country. Buying soy scented candles helps support local farmers and agriculture.

Burns Clean

Unlike paraffin candles, soy candles do not release any carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and they do not need chemicals to add any fragrances. Soy candles release fewer amounts of soot into the air when they are burned. Paraffin candle soot can accumulate on your walls and other surfaces in your home, which can be messy.

Longer Lasting

Soy candles have a tendency to burn longer than paraffin candles. Soybean-based wax burns at a cooler temperature and has a slower burning time than most paraffin candles. Even if a soy candle is more expensive upfront than a paraffin candle, it could last longer, which means you won’t have to frequently buy candles. This saves you money in the long run.

Smells Even Better

Oftentimes, essential oils are used to scent soy candles, and the soy-based wax holds onto the fragrance remarkably well. Since soy candles burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released. Paraffin candles tend to immediately release a strong scent that could be overpowering.
