Soy wax is derived from the oil of soybeans. Our candles are made from the wax of soybeans that are grown right here in the United States. The oil is extracted after the beans are cleaned, cracked, and de-hulled. After they are rolled into flakes, the oil is extracted and hydrogenated.After the oil is adequately extracted and is ready for all of the vibrant and unique scents to be added, it is shipped to Minnesota to us. From there the wax is melted down and transformed into unique and beautiful soy crystal and herb candles.

A standard wax used for candles is a wax called paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a solid colorless wax that is made from saturated hydrocarbons. While paraffin wax is commonly used to make crayons or candles, that doesn’t mean it’s the best option. Paraffin wax burns much quicker than soy wax and will often burn unevenly. Here are some reasons why soy wax is better.
𝟏. 𝐁𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐬 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐫
If you’ve ever burnt a paraffin wax candle, then we’re sure you’ve noticed black soot that gathers around the rim, the walls, and other surfaces around the candle. Yes, soybean wax candles may collect some black soot (which can be due to wicks not being trimmed before each burn). However, it will be much less than a paraffin wax candle. Not to mention, they’re non-toxic, so no toxins will be released into your home while you’re burning them. The best part of soy candles is that their scent is disbursed more evenly and slower. This ensures the scent will always be distributed evenly throughout a room and make sure it’s not too strong at first. Sometimes candles can be a little too much, especially if you’re sensitive to smells. Soybean wax candles are of higher quality, so you shouldn’t run into this issue.

When you find a scent you really love, you want to burn it all the time. It can get frustrating when you have to continuously replace your favorite scented candle—not to mention pricey. Soybean wax candles last longer than paraffin candles because of the cooler burning temperature of the soybean wax. Yes, initially, you may spend more on a soybean wax candle, but the longer-lasting candle will save you money in the long run as you will have to replace them less often. When you find a scent you really love, you want to burn it in every room in your house, so it only makes sense that you’ll buy a candle that will last longer. We’ve all been there; you finally find a candle that is just right for you and everyone in your home, and it’s burnt down to the wick before the workweek is through.

Considering soy wax candles are scented with CS and LSCS fragrance oils (a blend of synthetic and natural ingredients), the scent is much better and more potent than your average candle. The scent of the oils and soy wax work well together. The scent is released at an even pace and won’t make the scent too strong for the area you’re burning it in.
