Have you ever bought a store-bought candle and wondered, What is my candle made of? Does it contain chemicals that may not be healthy for my family and me? Why are they so much cheaper than other candles?
Well, that's exactly what happened to me when I decided to make my own candles. So I had to do my research.
Most store-bought candles are made with paraffin wax.
Paraffin wax is made from petroleum, oh my!
Paraffin candles are not biodegradable and release carcinogenic toxins.
While the soy wax candles are made from biodegradable wax made from soybeans.
Among other things, your soy candle will burn longer, generate less soot, and have a stronger fragrance than paraffin candles.
You can begin to see a big difference in how the candles are made, and with that, you can understand the price difference between the two candles. A soy candle is more expensive to make and requires more attention when making the candle.
You may not be able to afford soy candles, and that's understandable since everyone has a different budget.
Why am I sharing this with you? Because maybe you didn't know any of this.
If you are a subscriber to our WHW HomeBox, you are receiving in your box a natural soy wax, valued between $ 18.00 and $ 35.00 each quarter. Now that's a deal!
Did you know that soy wax purchases support American farmers?
