The Joy of Soy (Candles)

Paraffin wax is derived from crude oil, which is a limited resource that is also used to fuel our cars. Alternatively, soy wax is made from the oil of soybeans, a renewable resource that is grown here in the US. Which kind of candle would you rather have burning in your home?

These eco-friendly soy candles have a light fragrance and are made from 100% natural soybeans and premium botanicals. In addition they:

  • Contain no pesticides or herbicides and are biodegradable
  • Burn longer, cooler, and cleaner than paraffin candles
  • Clean up easily with soap and water
  • Promote the growth and care of the environment by utilizing plants that are a renewable resource
  • Support US farmers and our domestic economy
  • Reduce our dependency on crude oil
  • Make it possible for everyone to do something good for the environment

    I absolutely LOVE these candles! They smell great, burn twice as long as paraffin candles, and are good for the environment.
