Soy wax provides a much cleaner burn that does not include carcinogens, toxins, or pollutants so they are less likely to trigger allergies. You will not get petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles. Our soy wax is FDA approved and kosher certified. Soy candles last much longer than paraffin candles of the same size and soy wax is biodegradable which benefits our environment. Soy wax candles also hold the scent from essentials much better which allows a gradual scent release providing a more enjoyable atmosphere.
