The Skinny on Coconut Soy Wax: 5 Tidbits to Know!

Candles have been part of our lives for centuries, and over time, we've seen various enhancements in the way they are made. One such innovation is the use of vegetable waxes in candles. Vegetable waxes come from renewable resources and are eco-friendly. They have also proved to be better than traditional waxes. For instance, they burn cleaner, last longer, and don't leave soot. At our candle studio, we blend coconut and soy waxes. In this blog post, we'll dive into the benefits of vegetable waxes and why you should choose candles made from coconut and soy waxes.


Clean Burning:

Vegetable waxes are a clean-burning alternative to traditional waxes, which release soot and toxins into the air. They also don't emit black soot, which can ruin your candle holders and walls. This makes them ideal for anyone looking for a more natural and environmentally-friendly way to scent their space.


Longer Burn Times:

Coconut Soy waxes have longer burn times than traditional waxes, so you get to enjoy your candles for longer. This means you get more value for your money and can save on constant candle replacements. Our candles, made from a blend of coconut and soy waxes, have an average burn time of 50-60 hours! That means you get to indulge in your candle obsession without feeling guilty about how often you're replacing them!


Sustainable and Eco-Friendly:

Sustainable and eco-friendliness is the way of the future, and vegetable waxes are the pillars of it. Our candles are made from coconut and soy waxes, making them biodegradable, eco-friendly, and renewable. In other words, they don't consume scarce resources or contribute to deforestation. They are also vegan-friendly, because they don't contain any animal by-products like beeswax.


Better Scent Throw:

Scent throw refers to how well a candle fragrance takes over a room. With coconut waxes, you get an excellent scent throw because the fragrance sticks better to the wax. This means you get constant and long-lasting scent throws throughout the burn time of the candle. Coconut waxes also hold the fragrance oils better, which means the scent isn't lost even if the candle gets old.



Finally, coconut and soy waxes are non-toxic, which is an important consideration for those with allergies, pets, and young kids. They are gentle on the human body and don't contain any potentially harmful chemicals.


In conclusion, using vegetable waxes in our candle-making process is a deliberate choice to give our customers the best candles that are eco-friendly, sustainable, and non-toxic. We use a blend of soy and coconut waxes to create unique blends that burn cleanly and offer a more extensive scent throw. We hope this blog post has been informative, and the next time you're looking to buy a candle, you consider the benefits of Coconut wax candles. After all, a good candle is more than just warm light –– it should be safe, clean, and long-lasting.
