    Soy Wax Candles

    Soy candles are candles that are made from soy wax or soya wax, a plant-based vegetable wax made from the oil of the soybean plant. In contrast to some other candle waxes, soy wax is natural, renewable and biodegradable. It is an eco-friendly candle wax.

    At FelinFach, all our candles are made with plant-based waxes such as soy wax, no exceptions. Our soy candles have no added colourants, dyes or other additives and are either white or cream in colour, the natural colour of soy wax. We do not use paraffin wax, a derivative of the petroleum industry.

    10 Reasons to Love Soy Wax Candles

    1. Soy wax is derived from soybean plants that are grown each year.
    2. Our soy candles are natural, renewable and biodegradable.
    3. Although paraffin wax candles are popular due to its lower costs, it is nevertheless a product of the petroleum oil industry. When you remove the waxy substance from crude oil, you’re left with paraffin wax.
    4. Soy wax has a lower melting temperature than paraffin wax and as a result, it burns more cleanly, evenly and for a longer period of time.
    5. Soy candles burn with less soot than equivalent paraffin wax candles.
    6. When blended with natural fragrance oils, soy candles have beautiful aromas.
    7. Our soy candles have no added colourants or dyes and are either white or cream in colour, the natural colour of soy wax.
    8. During the production of soy wax, there is no testing on animals.
    9. We use wooden wicks in almost all our soy candles producing that relaxing wood wick crackle.
    10. Our soy candles come in various sizes from the 18cl Candles in a Tin to the luxurious 3-wick candles - all made with soy wax.

    1. The General Warning Triangle
    2. Never leave a burning candle unattended: Always keep an eye on your candles and never leave them burning when you leave the room or go to bed. If you need to leave the room, extinguish the candle first.
    3. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets: Make sure to keep candles out of reach of children and pets, who may accidentally knock them over or touch the flame.
    4. Keep candles away from flammable materials: Keep your candles away from curtains, bedding, and other flammable materials. Also, make sure to keep them away from drafts, as this can cause the flame to flare up and become a fire hazard.
