What is a soy candle? A soy candle is made from soybean wax. Wax from a soybean is non-toxic, biodegradable and a renewable sustainable resource. A 100% soy candle will burn cleaner, cooler, slower and more evenly.
Are all soy wax candles the same?
No, Many "soy" candles are actually a blend containing soy wax and paraffin wax. Southern Soy candles do not contain paraffin wax.
What are the benefits of soy?
Soy wax is 100% natural. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum and release CO2 in the atmosphere.
Soy candles produce far less soot than paraffin candles. In fact, the soot produced is 90% less and is white. For this reason, soy candles are the healthy alternative to a paraffin wax candle. Breathing toxic soot can be very unhealthy and will eventually cover nearby walls and furniture.
Do I need to trim the wick? (Also See Wood Wick Care Page)
You should always trim the wick to 1/4" every time you light your candle.
Where should I burn my soy candle?
It is best to burn the candle on a stable, protected, hard surface away from drafts and material that could catch fire. We suggest not leaving any candle unattended,
Can I recycle my jars?
Absolutely! The white glass jars would work well to hold cotton swabs or q-tips in the bathroom or make great kitchen canisters. Completely burn out your candle and remove the metal wick base. You can remove remaining wax with hot water and a paper towel. Wash the glass in water and soap.
