We want our homes to be inviting and emanate wonderful aromas when someone visits. There are many forms of air fresheners on the market; sprays, gels, mists, potpourri, soy candles and scented oils. The market has been inundated with new fragrance fans and air fresheners with “light shows”, but these items can be very pricey, especially when it comes to refills.
Using candles not only adds wonderful fragrance and aroma to your home but they also create a warm, appealing atmosphere. The price of candles can be much more economical than all the new-fangled items on the market today. Candles can create an ambiance incomparable to other air fresheners.
Candles are available in more fragrances than other air fresheners. The smell of candles will drift through your home and last longer than sprays so you aren’t continuously going from room to room with a can of air freshener.
Scented candles are a great way to create a serene or romantic environment in your home. If you are still using old wax candles, then you should think about switching to aromatherapy soy candles. These candles have a variety of benefits over the traditional wax candles. This article will discuss the many benefits of using natural soy candles instead of using candles made from paraffin wax.
Burning soy candles has many benefits over paraffin wax candles as well.
1 Soy wax candles burn cleaner thus reducing the pollution and irritants associated with paraffin wax candles and do not emit ozone gases. Another benefit of soy wax candles is that soy is a renewable resource. Traditional candles are made from a petroleum-based product called paraffin. You already know that oil must be imported and is currently setting record prices. Aromatherapy soy candles are made from soybean wax and can easily be made right here in the country without having to import any necessary materials. This also leads to the next point.
2 Candles made with paraffin wax release toxins into the air while they are burning. When you breathe these unhealthy carcinogens, they become lodged in your lungs. The smoke can even leave stains on the walls in your home. Organic soy candles are a non-toxic alternative to paraffin candles. They use natural cotton wicks and burn cleanly without releasing any smoke into the air.
3 Aromatherapy soy candles cost a little less than traditional candles made with paraffin wax. This is because the petroleum used to make paraffin must be imported from other countries. This is why the price of it is cheaper. An even greater benefit is that aromatherapy soy candles last twice as longer than other candles. Therefore, you won’t have to spend as much money on candles.
4They are made with triple the fragrance of paraffin wax candles making them smell better, but without overpowering your home. The fragrance lasts longer than with paraffin wax too.
5 If you regularly burn candles around your home, then you may have had accidents where wax spilled all over the floor. Melted paraffin wax is extremely hard to clean up if you’re able to clean it up at all. The wax from aromatherapy soy candles is much easier to clean up. You can simply use some soap and warm water to clean up the mess. Soy wax candles are biodegradable and will clean up with warm soapy water. If paraffin wax candles leak or spill it can be a mess trying to scrape the wax from your furniture. This can also damage your furniture and leave ugly scratch marks.
6 Soy wax candles will also burn 30% longer than paraffin wax candles. They may be a bit more expensive to buy, but when you consider the benefits of longer burning time and fragrance that lasts the entire lifetime of the candle, it really is a better choice economically.
7 Soy wax candles are made from 100% soybeans (vegan candles), making them a healthy choice and helping our American farmers in the process.
8 Soy candles are made with lead-free wicks and do not put out soot like other candles. We’ve all burned candles and been disappointed by the black gunk that builds up inside the jar. This soot not only blackens the jar but is also released into our homes coating our walls and ceilings. Not to mention the fact of how unappealing it looks when we are trying to create a pleasant atmosphere.
Burning organic soy candles offer so many more advantages than paraffin wax. You save money by burning natural candles that last longer and hold their fragrance; you help the environment by burning cleaner candles, and clean up from accidents are so much easier with soy wax.
If you’re still not convinced, purchase one soy candle and see the difference for yourself. Place your new soy candle in one room and a new paraffin wax candle in another room. Light them both at the same time and make comparisons on fragrance and burn time-and don’t forget to notice which one emits less soot.
