Soy Candles are a healthy and cheaper alternative to paraffin candles. They are in between paraffin candles, which are the cheapest priced candles and lower quality and beeswax candles, which are of higher quality at a higher price.

Soy Candles were created in 1992 by Michael Richards, which tried to find and made research for a more affordable and better alternative to beeswax candles. The candles are made from hydrogenated soybean oil known as soybean wax.

They burn slower than any other paraffin candle, without any emission of burning smell and the production of soot is 90% less. Also the aroma of scented soy candles is released much easier being noticed easy in the surrounding air.

Soy Candles are 100% natural and 100% recyclable, being preferred and applauded by almost all ecologists.
