The Benefits of Soy Wax Candles and Why They’re Better Than Paraffin

Candles Made in Texas

There’s nothing worse than a candle that burns like a factory smokestack. What a way to ruin an experience which should be soothing and relaxing. Comfort Candle Company soy wax blend candles inspire and comfort and leave behind no soot - our customers quickly understand the superiority of soy wax candles to their paraffin counterparts. Each Comfort Candle is handcrafted using a natural soy wax blend that produces an outstanding fragrance throw without all of the contaminants paraffin candles leave behind.

What is soy wax?

The base of soy wax is soybeans. After the soybeans are harvested and cleaned, they are cracked open and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated, which creates the soy wax. Soybeans are a completely renewable resource which makes them far more sustainable and eco-friendly than paraffin candles made from petroleum.

Soy wax candles have a cleaner burn

Comfort Candle Company candles offer an incredibly clean burn that emits far less black soot than your average paraffin candle. If you’ve ever burned a paraffin candle for hours on end, you’ve noticed the collection of black soot completely bombarding the jar of your candle. This not only ruins the candle’s aesthetic, but burning paraffin also releases harsh chemicals like benzene and toluene, which are known carcinogens.

Soy wax candles burn longer

In addition to an unwanted collection of black soot, when you burn paraffin candles for an extended period of time, before you know it there’s nothing left. Soy wax candles last longer because they burn at a lower temperature. Don’t worry about burning out your favorite Mimosa scented candle too quickly, Comfort Candle Company soy wax blend candles are made to last.

Soy wax delivers a better fragrance throw

Have you ever lit a candle that emits an overwhelming wave of scent within the first few minutes and then slowly dies off and emits practically no scent at all? That’s because they’re not made of soy wax. Soy wax blend candles have a consistent fragrance throw throughout the entirety of their burn - once lit, they’ll scent the air until extinguished. Comfort Candle Company soy wax candles come in a variety of scents from fruity to floral and outdoorsy.
