Natural Soy Candles
Natural Soy Candles – Jar, Scented And Soy Wax Candles
Natural soy candles are natural organic candles that are made, using soy wax, also known as hydrogenated soybean oil. As compared to other candles, soy wax candles are preferable, as they are more cost-effective, they last longer than paraffin wax candles, they do not increase high levels of toxins and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere on burning, they produce less soot and are easy to clean up if spilled. Soy wax can also be used to make soy jar candles and soy scented jar candles. If the soy wax is mixed with fragrances, it produces scented soy candles, which distributes more flavor, as the presence of the of the soybean oil lowers the candle’s melting point. This is why burning scented soy candles disperses the fragrance faster than other scented candles. However, burning a candle, for any period of time that is longer than recommended, without trimming the wick in the right way, can be dangerous, as a wick that has not been trimmed or has been trimmed improperly can lead to the creation of a high temperature and flame, which forms a deep melt pool. Wick trimmings should not be allowed to fall into the wax melt pool. Soy candles have become a good choice by consumers, who are concerned about the environment and are looking for green candles. Moreover, as soy candles are made from renewable resource, they are the perfect choice for those who are conscious about the health and environments of their home and surrounding.
Natural Beeswax Candles
Another type of candles, that is good for the environment are natural beeswax candles. In the olden days, the first candles were made using tallow or animal fat. However, these candles were not clean, they smelled offensive and filled the place with smoke when burned. Therefore, the introduction of the beeswax candles was a welcome change as they emitted the scent of honey, which was pleasant. Today, beeswax candles are a good choice for decorative and healthy purposes. They last longer, emit less smoke and toxins and do not drip as much as paraffin wax candles. Beeswax is produced by the honeybee and is a by-product of ingesting pollen and nectar. It can be purchased in thin sheets and can be molded into candles quite easily and in different ways. These candles add beauty, light, cheer and a sweet fragrance to the atmosphere when burnt.
