Why I burn Soy Candles-And You Should Too

* Soy wax is all-natural - Soy wax is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Burning of soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. It is biodegradable and totally sustainable!

* Soy candles last longer - They can last up to 50% longer than paraffin candles.

* Wax spills are easy to clean - It's very difficult to remove paraffin wax from furniture or textiles. Soy wax spills can easily be cleaned up with hot soapy water.

* Soy candles produce less soot - Soot is very unhealthy and can eventually coat furniture and walls. Soy candles produce about 90% less soot that paraffin candles.

* Soy supports the American Farmer - Soy wax is made from soybeans grown right here in the United States. By purchasing products made from soybeans, you are supporting the U.S. Economy and the American farmer thereby helping to reduce Americas dependency on foreign oil.

* Soy candles burn uniformly - Soy wax candles burn more evenly, so the wax is not wasted and burn time is extended.
