Soy candles have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their numerous benefits over traditional paraffin wax candles.

Made from soy wax, these candles offer several advantages. They are the go-to choice for many consumers who are looking for a more eco-friendly and healthier option.

Here are the five top reasons why we love soy wax candles at Savvy, and why you need 100% soy wax candles in your life. 

# 1. Eco-friendly

    One of the main benefits of soy candles is that they are environmentally friendly.

    Soy wax is made from natural soybeans, which is a natural resource that helps reduce the impact on our environment. Alternative to Paraffin candles, which are made from petroleum’s fossil fuels and release harmful chemicals into the air when burned.

    Soy candles are safe for the planet and release no toxins, which make them an excellent choice for the eco-conscious home.

    # 2. Cleaner Burning

      Soy wax candles burn much cleaner than paraffin wax. This means that they produce little to no black soot, reducing the risk of indoor air pollution. In addition, soy wax candles burn at a lower temperature, making them safer to use in the home.

      # 3. Longer-lasting

      Soy candles burn longer than traditional paraffin candles. They burn slower and cooler, which means they last up to 50% longer than paraffin candles. This makes them an affordable option in the long run, as they need to be replaced less frequently.

      # 4. Non-allergenic

      Soy candles are a safer option than traditional candles as they release no harmful toxins into the air. Soy candles have a much lower melting point than paraffin wax, which makes them burn at cooler temperatures.

      Soy wax candles make an excellent choice for those who are allergic to strong smells. They can burn soy wax candles without worrying about triggering their allergies.

      # 5. Multi-purpose

      Soy candles come in a variety of scents, styles, and sizes, making it easy to find one that fits your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for something sweet and fruity or something more earthy and woodsy, Savvy has you covered.
