Gift Boxes Just For You

Soy Wax Candles

Candles are one of the few constants in modern society. We use candles to add ambient lighting to parties, romantic get-togethers, and even quiet evenings at home. We gift candles to our friends, family and other loved friends. We even use candles with scents to relax or to just simply enjoy one of our favorite scents filling the room. 

But not all candles were created equally. You have probably purchased a few "dud" candles in your life--those candles that give off a weird burning smell, or end up causing the nearby walls or ceiling to have unpleasant looking soot marks; candles that don't seem to burn for long, or scented candles have nothing but a faint scent that disappears as quickly as it comes.

But--it doesn't have to be this way. If you want a candle that lasts long, burns clean, and will truly fill your room with beautiful and long-lasting scents, you need to look for a soy wax candle. A soy wax candle is made from 100% natural soybeans, rather than the typical paraffin wax used by inferior candles. They make for a great inspiration gift candle and, for the environmentally conscious, they are considered a vegan candle due to not using animal by-products. If you're still not convinced that a soy wax candle would make the perfect inspirational gift candle for you or your loved ones, take a closer look at why people around the world are turning to soy wax candles for their gifts and personal home purchases.

Soy Wax Candles Are More Environmentally-Friendly

Unlike typical candles, candles made from soy wax are made from all-natural soybeans. Soy wax is more environmentally-friendly than traditional paraffin wax for several reasons, including but not limited to: releasing extremely little to no black soot at all when lit; being biodegradable; and containing no ingredients that release pollutants and other unwanted gunk into the air. And because they are made from soybeans and are environmentally friendly, these candles are considered a vegan candle; this makes them a perfect gift for any vegan in your life, or as an addition to your own vegan household.

Soy Wax Candles Smell Amazing

If you’ve ever lit a scented candle and ended up planting your face next to the wax, sniffing deeply and hoping to catch a whiff of the scent promised on the packaging—you’re not alone. The reason why many candles do not give off much of a scent, or have a scent which disappears quickly, is because ordinary paraffin wax burns at a high temperature. The higher the temperature of the wax, the less likely it is that a scent will stick around for very long. Soybean wax, on the other hand, burns much cooler—and the end result is that the scents have much longer staying power and they tend to fill the room with ease when compared to scented paraffin candles. For people who love scented candles, a soy wax candle makes the perfect inspirational gift candle.
