Why are Soy Wax Candles Becoming So Popular
Soy wax candles are made from hydrogenated soybean oil making them a more natural product. Soy wax is a cheaper alternative to using beeswax and creates a long lasting and clean burning candle. Soy candles can be combined with different fragrances and essential oils and come in all colors and shapes. There are many benefits to using soy wax when you want to learn how to make candles on your own. Creating soy wax candles can be a very satisfying and rewarding hobby.
Some of the advantages of using soy wax to make your own candles include:
· Soy wax candles produce less soot than paraffin wax candles
· If you spill some of the soy wax when you are learning how to make soy candles, it is easy to clean up.
· Soy candles burn at least 50% longer than candles made from paraffin wax
· Burning candles made from soy wax does not increase the level of carbon dioxide in the air
You can do your one-stop shopping for all your candle making needs at a store that sells soy candle supplies. Here you can get tips on how to decorate your soy wax candles, how to store them and how to get just the right color into the mixture, buy molds for various types of soy wax candles and pick up books about making other kinds of candles as well.
If your after special scents for your soy wax candles, try experimenting with the various fragrance oils. Combining them can often give you the unique scent you want. However it can also give you an odor that you don’t want to have in your candles. It is best to mix the oils before you add them to the soy wax so that you don’t have to throw out the whole pot of melted wax.
