At Botanical Propaganda we are proud to make and sell only handmade, small batch, natural 100% Soy Wax candles. While we offer these eco and lung friendly candles at a price that is very competitive when compared to other Soy candles, they are more expensive than paraffin wax candles. Paraffin wax is very inexpensive and used in more than 95% of candle making today. Paraffin is the leftover by-product from the petroleum refining process. Studies have shown that this petroleum by-product can release harmful carcinogens into the air you breathe. Botanical Propaganda loves its customers and will not be involved with such a product.
The top three benefits of 100% Soy wax candles are:
- Cleaner Burn- Soy Wax does not release toxins, carcinogens or pollutants. Its also less likely to trigger allergies. It has no petrol-carbon soot that you would get from paraffin candles.
- Cooler burn-longer lasting- Since Soy Wax burns candles burn cooler they will outlast paraffin candles by 30-50%
- Biodegradable- Soy candles are made out of soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable and water soluble making melted wax easier to clean.
A few more notes about Botanical Propaganda’s 100% Soy wax candles.
