What is a soy candle?
You say a candle is like a candle? It looks innocent and no one has ever paid much attention to its composition.
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. However, their disadvantage is that burning cheap paraffin wax releases toxic substances.
Thus, in the 1990s, soy wax was invented, which is extracted from soybeans. This wax is from renewable sources, lasts longer, has a 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 "pool" (this can take up to 4 hours) - the reason for this is, so that you don't get a tunnel that will deepen with each burn
over time a small black sponge may form on the wick - trim it off (ensures an even burn)
