The benefits of natural candles

by James Granger on March 24, 2023

Candles have been used for centuries to create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere in homes and other spaces. However, not all candles are created equal. Many traditional candles are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum and can release harmful chemicals when burned. This is why natural candles made from ingredients such as soy wax, beeswax, or coconut wax are becoming increasingly popular. Here are some of the benefits of using natural candles:

  1. Healthier Air Quality: Natural candles are made from ingredients that are biodegradable and do not release harmful toxins when burned. For example, soy wax candles are made from soybeans, which are a renewable resource, and they do not release chemicals such as benzene and toluene when burned. Beeswax candles are another great option, as they release negative ions when burned, which can improve air quality and reduce allergens in the air.

  2. Longer Burn Time: Natural candles made from soy wax or beeswax have a longer burn time than traditional paraffin wax candles. This is because they have a lower melting point and burn slower, so they last longer. This means that you can enjoy the soothing ambiance of a candle for a longer period of time without having to replace it as often.

  3. Better Scent Throw: Natural candles hold more fragrance than paraffin candles, giving a better scent throw, which means the scent is more noticeable in the room. This is because natural waxes have a lower melting point, which allows the fragrance to be released more easily.

  4. Eco-Friendly: Natural candles are made from renewable resources and are biodegradable, making them a more eco-friendly option than paraffin candles, which are derived from non-renewable petroleum. This means that they have a lower impact on the environment and are a sustainable choice.

  5. Safe: Natural candles are non-toxic and safe to use around children, pets, and people with allergies or asthma. They do not release harmful chemicals into the air when burned, which means that they are a healthier choice for your home.
