Ah spring…the time we love to clean, organize, and freshen up our homes. Scent always creates a a fabulous ambiance, but burning regular wax candles can sometimes be unhealthy and actually create a mess.
SOI Candles are a fabulous, soy-based alternative.
The SOI Company was founded with the idea of creating a healthier environment in your home through beautifully crafted, all-natural soy products.
SOI Candles are hand-poured using 100%, FDA approved, kosher soy oil and burn cleaner than paraffin-based candles. Available in a variety of sizes, SOI candles burn about 140 hours (about 40% longer than wax candles), are soot-free and do not emit any harmful toxins (like Benzene) into your home. Unlike wax, soy oil burns coolly at 106º into a reflective pool of soy that always remains warm to the touch and will not burn little hands.
Soy wax burns cleaner, lasts longer, holds more fragrance and supports American agriculture. It contains no toxic chemicals or carcinogenic compounds. Soy candles do not put your health at risk. Soy candles do not release the toxins that paraffin candles emit.
Paraffin wax is a by-product of fuel refining – specifically, Paraffin is basically the “bottom of the barrel” even after asphalt is extracted. Paraffin is the final byproduct in the petroleum refining chain.
Even “food grade” paraffin contains several known carcinogens (cancer causing agents) identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – such as benzene and toulene, which are released into the air as a paraffin candle burns. Some other air contaminants in paraffin fumes include methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), and naphthalene–substances found in paint, lacquer and varnish removers.
Soy candles are eco-friendly, hand-crafted and biodegradable. Custom crafted with top-grade fragrance oils, our soy candles are the safest, most fragrant eco-candle you’ll find!
Because SOI Candles are created from natural soy, the melt pool can also be used as a skin moisturizer that can be massaged into any dry or irritated areas. It can also be applied as a soothing remedy to sunburned skin, eczema, psoriasis, and poison oak!
SOI Candles are triple-fragranced with a variety of delightful aromas to match the décor and accentuate the feel of your home. Never overpowering, one SOI Candle can scent a 2500 square foot area.
