What is a soy candle?
When you say candle, nobody looks for anything more behind it. A candle is a candle.
Once upon a time, candles made from beeswax, animal fats and vegetable oils were the standard. Then, with the advent of the oil industry, there were paraffin candles, which were a more affordable alternative to these waxes. But their downside is that burning cheap paraffin wax releases toxic substances.
And so, a few decades ago, soy wax was invented, which is derived from natural soybeans. It has a much cleaner burn and releases up to 90% less soot.
How to care for a candle?
If you want your candle to burn as long as possible, remember these points:
trim the wick to 4-5 mm before each new lighting
during the burning process, allow the wax to melt to the edges to create a "lake" (this can take up to 4 hours) - the reason for this is to avoid creating a tunnel that will deepen with each lighting
over time, a small black sponge may form on the wick - trim it (this will ensure an even burn)
