Looking to fill your home with beautiful aromas and a warm ambiance? Candles are a classic choice for scenting your home, but with so many options on the market, it's natural to wonder: are all candles created equal?

The answer is a resounding no! Here at Scented Designs Candle Company, we're passionate about soy wax candles, and for good reason.

Soy candles offer a multitude of benefits that make them a safe and delightful choice for you, your loved ones, and your home.

Soy Candles Benefits: Why They Shine

So, what makes soy candles such a great choice? Let's take a peek at some of the key benefits of soy candles:

  • Clean Burning: Soy wax burns cooler and cleaner than traditional paraffin wax candles, meaning less soot and smoke. This translates to a purer fragrance experience and can be especially beneficial for those with allergies or sensitivities.

  • Natural and Renewable: Soy wax is derived from American-grown soybeans, a readily renewable resource. In particular, soybeans sourced for soy wax in the U.S. are generally from farms that incorporate sustainable farming practices. This eco-friendly aspect makes soy candles a great choice for the environmentally conscious consumer.

  • Longer Lasting: Soy candles typically burn for a longer duration compared to paraffin wax candles, offering you more value for your money and more hours of fragrant bliss. Generally speaking, a soy wax candle will burn up to 50% longer than a paraffin wax candle of the same size, as we told major home decor publication House Beautiful!
