Organic Non-Toxic Soy Candles

There’s nothing more relaxing than burning a candle and curling up under a warm blanket, am I right? The warm golden glow. The soft, flickering shadows. The delicious aromas. Ahhhh, pure zen.

But did you know that candles can actually be super harmful if you’re not purchasing the right ones? Let's dive in for a minute!

Research from the EPA shows that candles with lead core wicks can lead to higher levels of lead in the air and may also emit chemicals like formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein far above acceptable EPA-recommended levels. Exposure to high amounts of lead has been linked to hormone disruption, behavioral problems, learning disabilities, and numerous health problems.

There is also the issue with traditional paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum and can contain various toxins, carcinogens, and air pollutants. Petroleum releases carcinogenic soot when burned, which can cause respiratory problems and will aggravate the conditions of those who already have asthma, lung, or heart problems.

The overpowering scent of most candles comes from synthetic oils that release microscopic particles which can cause cancer and other health problems when inhaled.

All of these things in commercial candles can lead to headaches, vision issues, asthmatic flares and so much more!

To keep your air clean when burning candles, it’s best to use candles with organic beeswax or soy wax, 100% cotton or hemp wicks, and high quality essential oils. Because natural waxes have a lower melting point, they often last longer as well. This means you get more for your money, and you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite candles for much longer. Plus the wax used in these candles are biodegradable, so it’s easier to clean spills and re-use these gorgeous amber glass containers when they are empty.

Soy wax comes from hydrogenated soybean oil, which has the same source as tofu. This soy wax is 100% organic non gmo! Soy wax candles are typically container candles since soy wax has a lower melting point than other types of wax. Moreover, additives like coconut wax can be mixed into soy wax to raise the melting point. In addition, soy wax tends to be softer & burns at a cooler temperature, meaning that your candle will burn for more hours than a paraffin candle of the same size. The soy tends to produce a white flame, which is similar to fluorescent light and has no natural scent. The wax is also less likely to scald if touched, which is an important consideration for households with curious little ones

Coconut wax is a colorless and odorless wax made from cold-pressed coconut meat or coconut oil mixed with soy wax. It is considered as one of the best and healthiest types of wax to make candles because it doesn’t produce as much soot as the other types of wax. It is also commonly blended with other natural waxes to produce candles that have better burn quality and aromatic throw. If you’re about saving the planet, coconut wax candles are the perfect fit for you because they are the most eco-friendly type of candle to produce. They are non-toxic and burn cleaner because as mentioned previously, coconut wax emits no smoke and is soot-free.

*Burn time is about 50 hours for an 8 ounce.
