Using Environmentally Friendly Soy Candles

By Matt Fuller

If you love the subtle, warm glow of candle light but bemoan the damaging effects of burning paraffin wax, then you will be delighted to learn about natural soy candles. You can now opt to light a deliciously fragrant candle without the noxious undertone of burning paraffin to ruin the ambience of the evening, a fact that will be appreciated by the avid candle aficionado.

Soy candles are an environmentally friendly alternative that delivers the traditional soft lighting of candles with a wide variety of delightful fragrances thanks to the addition of pure essential oils. Dependent on your mood, you can fragrance your chosen room with the scents of lavender, sandalwood, peppermint, patchouli, roses, citronella, lily of the valley and many more.

Choose eucalyptus or lavender scented soy candles if you are seeking a soothing, refreshing fragrance that will relax you and guarantee a good nights sleep when the lights go out. The warming scents of Moroccan cedar is a good choice for a chilly winter night when you fancy settling down in front of a roaring fire with a warming glass of sherry and a good book.

Some clever technologists in the beauty industry have created a soy massage oil candle, which you can use for the art of sensual massage. This candle has a low melting point, ensuring that the wax is never more than two degrees above body temperature and the oils in the candle can be spread, warm, across the skin for a relaxing scented massage.

Variety is not limited when it comes to selecting the size, shape, fragrance and even the color of your favorite soy candle. Pick the one that will suit your color scheme at home or at the office, safe in the knowledge that you are using a product that will not release toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. Candles with a petroleum base burn to release harmful toxins into the environment but by reverting to soy candles you are assured that you are using an eco friendly product.

By using this product you are providing farmers with a source of income and as the demand increases more work is provided across the globe. These candles also burn at a cooler temperature, meaning less risks of scalding oneself, which will put to rest the minds of parents with young children. Soy wax will not stain so there is no worry about melted wax staining your grandmothers vintage table cloth or of it running your clothing.

Wax made from soy is much better at absorbing and releasing fragrance when melted. The scent of essential oils is intensified in this format when compared to the same amount of scent used in a traditional paraffin wax candle. No harm is done to the environment during the manufacture of soy candles, meaning that you are using a green, ecosystem friendly product.

The use of renewable resources like soy that pose no threat to our ecosystems due to manufacturing or processing are to be encouraged. There are so many industries whose manufacturing processes cause harm to the environment, so if you can, support an industry that has no negative impact on the environment and switch to soy candles.
