When it comes to purchasing candles, the fragrance and odour of the candle shouldn’t be the only thing you take into consideration. Candles may be crafted from a wide range of waxes, each of which has its own unique set of qualities that influence how well it functions as a candle material. Candles may be crafted from a wide variety of waxes, including but not limited to paraffin wax, soy wax, palm wax, and granulated wax.
What Is Soy Wax?
The soybean is the source of soy wax, which is a natural wax consisting entirely of soybeans. Following the harvesting of the beans, they are washed, cracked, and stripped of their hulls before being rolled into flakes. The flakes are processed so that the oil may be removed from them, and any remaining flakes are used to feed animals.
In contrast to other types of candle wax, paraffin wax is very inexpensive and easy to produce, making it one of the most often used types. The removal of impurities from crude oil, coal, or oil shale results in the production of paraffin wax as a byproduct of the process. After the removal of the waxy substance from crude oil, the substance that is left behind is called paraffin wax.
Why Select Soy Wax?
Traditional paraffin wax is produced from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable resource, in contrast to soy wax, which is produced from renewable resources that are beneficial to the environment. Not only does selecting soy wax over another form of candle wax have “green” benefits, but also choosing soy wax over paraffin wax in candle making kits results in a candle that burns more slowly, which means that the candle will burn for a longer period. Even while all candles produce some black soot as they burn, candles manufactured from soy wax burn cleanly and produce less soot than other types of candles. When it comes to candles, choosing soy wax over other types of wax is beneficial for several reasons, one of which is that soy wax is a superb scent carrier that does not require the use of chemical amplifiers. The end product is a perfectly scented candle that retains its natural balance.
Candles Made With Soy Wax From Aussie Candle Supplies
Aussie Candle Supplies only uses soy wax in the production of their candles, which by this point you should know is for good reason. Because soy wax is a natural product, there may be some subtle differences between batches produced at different times of the year. When it is in its solid condition, the wax can be quite soft, but when it is in other states, it can be as hard as a rock.
The wax may melt into a clear and transparent state at times, while at other times it may melt while retaining a somewhat foggy appearance. When shopping for a soy candle, it is natural and anticipated for all of this to occur.
