Why Soy Wax Candles Are Superior

Why Soy Wax Candles Are Superior

Soy Wax Candles just seem to smell better, burn longer, and overall make for better candles. But, that hunch is actually based on a few key facts about soy wax that makes it superior to other candle waxes and makes your candle experience better.


 First, and foremost, the candle experience is about filling a space with a scent you love. Maybe it’s White Lily, or Kashmir Vanille, whichever it is you’ve chosen a scent that you want your space to smell like. There is nothing more disappointing than lighting a candle and the scent doesn’t fill the room, or it smells completely different went lit. Luckily, both of those candles are made of soy wax which means that their scent isn’t amplified by chemicals or other compounds. Soy wax is an excellent binder for scents, meaning that it provides a true-to-scent experience because there are no extra chemical compounds that could react when the candle is lit to dilute the scent you’re looking for.

Soy wax also has a lower melting point, but burns slower than paraffin and shale based waxes, so the flame of your candle heats the wax more evenly providing a more robust scent experience, while lasting longer than other candles.

And because soy wax doesn’t need additional chemicals to produce a rich scent when lit, putting out your soy wax candle produces less soot and smoke, so you don’t have to worry about setting off any fire alarms just because you lit a candle.


We love our line of Aqua de Soi Soy Wax candles, with many scents to choose from like Provence Lavender, or Elderflower Verbena you can find a scent that suits you and start enjoying the benefits of soy wax candles sooner!
