Why Soy, Coconut, and Bees Wax Candles are Worth the Price
You may have already heard the arguments in favor of soy, coconut, or bees wax candles over paraffin wax ones. Many people refuse to buy candles made from these waxes simply because of the associated higher prices. If you are going to invest more of your hard-earned money purchasing any of these candles, then you should understand some of the benefits that these candles offer.
Soy Wax is derived from the soybean and is extremely sustainable. As the negative news surrounding Soy has taken a front burner, the thing that is important to remember is Soy Wax candles are infinitely more-healthy then Paraffin Wax, which is a derivative of petroleum, coal, or oil shale. Soy Wax is a of medium hardness, which makes it good for a variety of candle types. Soy Wax holds color very well; however, its biggest weakness is in its inability to throw a scent when lit. This consideration is inconsequential when compared to the health risks of the less-healthy Paraffin Wax candles.
Beeswax has the most beneficial health properties of any wax used in candle-making. When burned, beeswax adheres to pollutants in the air. This means that beeswax candles actually cleanse the air while burning. The natural aromatic properties of beeswax mean there is no need for added fragrance oils; however, this wax holds fragrance oil well and has a great scent throw while lit. Beeswax is an extremely hard wax and can be used for any type of candle. The most disturbing aspect of beeswax is how it is cultivated. While beeswax is 100% vegan and natural, it is extremely time consuming to make. If people begin to keep bees, this may well aide in an environmental misfortune.
Coconut Wax is the best of both worlds. Coconut Wax is derived from the meat of the coconut utilizing a completely natural harvesting process. Coconut crops have an extremely high yield per acre as well as a high crop renewal rate making it the most eco-friendly wax available today. Combine this with the fact that Coconut Wax has one of the best scent throws of any of the waxes used today, is smokeless, soot-free, and burns longer than any of the waxes means that Coconut Wax is the most efficient candle to buy. The only downside to Coconut Wax is its softness, which limits the type of candle it can be used in without combing waxes.
