Why Soy?

Why Soy?

There’s something about the flicker and crackle of a burning candle to calm your mind and bring a relaxing feeling into your home. However, if you are burning traditional candles, chances are you may be actually putting your health at risk!
Meysha is our chief candlemaker and she hand-pours all our soy wax cotton wick candles. Why does she use soy wax? She’s glad you asked!
While there is an increase in the cost to purchase the materials for soy wax candles, we are choosing quality over quantity in the products we make and sell. Soy wax is non-toxic, natural, and more sustainable for the environment. We take pride in doing our part to preserve our amazing planet in any way we can! Soy is also vegan, biodegradable, and a fully-renewable resource.  It comes from our soybean farmers here in the USA! That's right…you're supporting our American farmers when you purchase our candle.
It's also helping the environment in another more indirect way since the soybeans did not have to ship as far.
Soy wax is a clean-burning wax that produces zero petrochemicals when burned, unlike fossil fuel-derived paraffin wax.  What a great alternative to keep the benefits of candles and ditch the risks!
If you’re looking for a beautiful looking and smelling candle that isn't harmful to your health, shop Meysha’s soy wax candles here or our Bee's Knees Candles made with beeswax and a hemp wick here!
