Soy candles make a house feel cozy and welcoming.
They fill the room with soft light and the air with warm, comforting scents. But have you ever thought about what other products are going into the air when a candle it lit? Many mass-produced candles are made from paraffin, but we chose a better alternative, soy, and we’d love to tell you why we are proud to put the Gypsy Spring name on these clean-burning candles you can feel safe using in your home. Unlike paraffin, which is made from petroleum, a by product of gasoline, soy is vegetable based and biodegradable. It comes from the soy bean, grown and harvested by American farmers.
Soy-based candles are 100% non-toxic, so you can feel completely confident using them. However, paraffin-based candles release carcinogens into the air and have been known to release toxins and cause headaches for many people. In contrast, soy candles burn cleaner (no black soot), longer, and slower than non-soy candles. You can enjoy your candle up to 25% longer than other types, all the while knowing that this clean aroma is ridding your home of any unwanted odors naturally and faster than the alternatives. Even better, soy wax does not emit CO2 when burning, as other products do.
While enjoying your candle, you can feel confident that soy wax is better for you and the environment, since soybeans are a renewable source, unlike petroleum-based waxes. Soy is safer to use, since its lower melting point means less risk of burns, and it is less expensive to purchase as well. We love the way our candles help create a welcoming, peaceful ambiance in your home, and we at Gypsy Spring are proud to bring you the best, cleanest, safest choice available.
