Soy Wax Custom Candles

Candles can be an excellent way to set the right atmosphere, unwind after a hard day, or add some flair to any home. Their soothing fragrance has therapeutic benefits as well – like lavender.

Soy wax is a natural vegetable wax derived from soybeans that serves as a renewable resource and supports local farmers, while producing less smoke than paraffin candles.

Soy wax is a natural wax

Soy wax candles offer an eco-friendly alternative to paraffin candles, made from renewable resources that produce it and which burn cleanly and with less smoke than its traditional counterpart. Soy candles also reduce damage caused by toxic fumes released when burning traditional candles in your home and last longer than their counterparts.

Soybeans are one of the primary agricultural crops in the US. Soy wax is natural, nontoxic and biodegradable – ideal for easy cleanup with soap and water! Furthermore, its lower melting point allows it to burn slower.

Golden Brands 464 is an all-natural container blend with a low melt point that helps the wax adhere better to containers and minimize shrinkage, as well as allow fragrance oil to penetrate deeply into the candle for greater scent throw. When adding fragrance oil, heat your wax between 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit before pouring.

This hard, buttery wax offers you exceptional performance with impressive color retention and high hot/cold scent throw. It is user-friendly, pours nicely into clear glass containers and non-GMO; providing great performance even in warmer environments.

It burns cleanly

There’s much ambiguity within the candle industry surrounding what constitutes a clean-burning candle. While some companies will refer to soy wax-based candles as green candles, while others use paraffin, beeswax, palm wax or synthetically manufactured waxes in their candles instead; but these don’t always burn well and release harmful toxins into the air that may compromise long-term health and wellness.

Soy wax is an all-natural product derived from soybeans, one of the most widely farmed agricultural crops in America. Once harvested, these beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes to produce soy wax for use in candles – an approach more sustainable than using petroleum-derived sources of oil for candle production.

Soy wax candles also produce less soot than paraffin candles when burning, which makes it beneficial for people with respiratory conditions, elderly adults and young children. This factor alone could make soy wax an attractive choice.

Soy wax is an ideal slow-burning material that allows fragrance to disseminate evenly throughout the candle, creating an authentic aroma without the use of chemical amplifiers and artificial scenting agents. Plus, soy candles offer more pleasant smells than their paraffin counterparts!

It has a long burn time

Soy candles are made of natural vegetable wax and burn for longer than their paraffin counterparts, while not leaving behind black soot on walls and curtains like paraffin candles do. Plus, soy candles can be more easily cleaned up using soap and water alone!

Soy wax candles are eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, non-toxic and contain no toxic chemicals, making them less likely to trigger allergies than paraffin wax candles (derived from petroleum, coal and oil shale). Soy candles also differ from paraffin candles by having different textures and appearances; typically being softer with an antique rustic aesthetic than their counterparts and harder to clean up due to their natural textures.

Selecting the ideal candle for your home can have profound implications on both health and environment. The type of wax a candle is made from determines its scent, color and burning time – often paraffin is preferred due to its low cost; soy wax candles may offer additional advantages as an option.

A great candle should provide long burn times and fragrant fragrance. To maximize this experience, ensure the wick is trimmed back before lighting for no longer than six hours per burn – or use a wax warmer to extend its burn life even further.

It’s easy to make

Soy wax candles can be made quickly and easily by hand with just a few basic supplies and some time. Their ingredients are all-natural, renewable and sustainably sourced – not to mention they burn much cleaner than paraffin candles, giving off less soot than other types of candles and lasting much longer too! Customizable to suit any taste or style or suitable as gifts!

Soy Wax is an eco-friendly candle wax made from renewable soybeans grown and harvested in the Midwest states of the US. Once harvested, these beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, rolled into flakes for oil extraction before being hydrogenated to form soy wax that is then poured into candle jars to create beautiful candles.

Once melted, soy wax can be customized with fragrance oils or essential oils and colored with candle dye chips or liquid dye. Be sure to stir the dye evenly into the wax so as to achieve full integration; using too little or too much may reduce burn quality.

Once your container is complete, the wick can be carefully placed in its center and centered. It is important that the wick stays upright without hanging over the edge, which you can do by purchasing wick holders and candle putty from craft stores. Once it has set completely, your candle is ready to enjoy!
