1. At the table: Paraffin candles release toxic chemicals that can mask the aroma of food. Unscented soy candles will burn longer and won’t interfere with the smell or texture of what you’re enjoying.
2. Sustainable energy: Unlike paraffin, which is extracted from non-renewable oil, soybean is a renewable resource. From an energy perspective, if possible, opt for brands that use sustainably grown soy candles, such as Linner.
3, air quality: compared with paraffin wax, all natural soybean candles burn more fully, no black smoke and no residue. This results in better overall air quality in your home.
4. Cleanliness: Soy wax is biodegradable, so it tends to be easier to clean than paraffin wax if it spills onto tablecloths or clothes.
Burning: Soy candles burn more cleanly and thoroughly than paraffin wax. According to the Daily Mail, many paraffin candles contain synthetic fragrances and dyes that, when heated, give off harmful particulate matter.
6. Recycling: Soy candles are non-toxic, renewable and recyclable. Also, you can reuse soy candles in glass containers.
7. Fragrance: Due to the slow burning time of soy candles, it allows them to release essential oils for many hours with a mild, diffuse fragrance rather than a powerful explosive synthetic spice scent. Candles derived from plants and flowers, or “aromatherapy,” have long been a favorite.
8. Cost: While soy candles tend to be more expensive, they tend to burn longer. When you factor in the burn time, the cost performance of soy candles often wins out.
