The Joy of Soy

What is so good about soy wax?

Few people realise that most shop bought candles are made with paraffin wax, which is made from the leftover residue of the petroleum refining industry & that burning paraffin wax candles can be very nasty for you & your home. They can let off carcinogens & petrol-carbon soot into the air you breathe, which can also blacken walls & ceilings.

Candles made with soy wax offer a number of unique features:

SOY WAX is non-toxic;

SOY WAX is water soluble and hot soapy water will clear wax from any surface;

SOY WAX has a low melting point which gives you a long lasting candle and a room filling fragrance;

SOY WAX can even be used as a moisturiser. Just rub some of the melted wax into your skin. It feels just like body butter.

All Erica Soy Candles are made with 100% non toxic soy wax with no additives. I also use lead free, cotton wicks so there is no black sooty smoke.

PLEASE NOTE: Soy wax candles may produce some soot, but it is non-toxic, unlike the carcinogenic black soot that paraffin candles produce.
