Just a girl who likes to keep her mind busy by implementing all the crazy ideas that come into my head.

I make a variety of projects, but herbal soy candles, acrylic (especially UV/glow in the dark) paintings, and liquor bottle lamps are definitely my niche. I'm going to be adding to this shop all the time, so keep an eye out!

WHY IS SOY WAX BETTER?
100% Vegan. 100% Natural. 100% Eco- Friendly

•Soy candles are natural! They’re made from vegetable oil (soybeans) while on the other hand; paraffin candles are made from petroleum oil. As a result, soy wax candles do not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere like paraffin candles do. Furthermore, soy candles do not require chemicals to scent them.

•Soy candles burn 50% longer than regular candles. Therefore, even though soy wax candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin wax candles to buy, they are still more cost-effective in the long run. For comparison’s sake, soy candles generally cost less than beeswax candles (another natural wax alternative to paraffin). Furthermore, soy candles burn evenly, leaving almost no excess wax on the sides of the jar.

•Soy candles burn cleaner than regular paraffin candles do. As a result, they don’t produce much black soot like paraffin candles. Candle soot is more of a nuisance than you might realize. If you burn a lot of candles, over time it can discolor your walls & furniture and stain the edges of your carpet!

•Soy candles are non-toxic since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. Parrafin, however, releases petro-carbon soot that stains and is circulated through air ducts. According to American Lung Association, paraffin wax contains 11 documented toxins, 2 of which are known carcinogens – toluene and benzene.

•The scent from soy candles is much stronger and more pleasant than the scent from paraffin wax candles. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, there is a larger amount of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick itself. When it’s said that a candle scent “throws well”, this means it fills the room with a strong, lasting scent. Soy wax candles not only have a great scent throw, but also have a cleaner smell. It’s been noted by many that paraffin wax will give them headaches. Of course it’s not the scent itself, but the additional chemicals the paraffin is putting off. Because soy burns so clean, you’ll get a cleaner scent as well.
