Soy candles were created in the 1990s by a man looking for a better, cleaner alternative to paraffin based candles. He found that soybeans could be processed into oil and when hardened into a wax it proved to burn more cleanly, came from a renewable resource and emitted no toxins into the air when burnt.

From a crop of soybeans, you can get milk to drink, tofu and edamame to eat, fuel for your car, ink to print newspapers and now relax in a tub full of bubbles in the glow of a scented soy candle.

You can easily get the high-quality soy candles from various online sources.

Paraffin has long been the most common source for candles. It is a petroleum-based product and, when burned, produces soot and releases toxins into the air. Soy is 100% biodegradable, contains no VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and burns very cleanly.

Soy wax candles can take more fragrance than paraffin based candles and will provide a consistent scent throughout the life of your soy candle. Scented soy candles will add a subtle treat to any space.

All natural soy candles are a unique addition to your home or office. Take an opportunity to explore the benefits of soy candles and include them in your home and family environment. You will find that burning a soybean candle will inspire a mood, spark any occasion and will permeate the air with colorful fragrances.
