When we first set out to make a healthier scented candle for ourselves we had no idea of the adventure we were about to partake. Soy wax had recently been invented and almost no soy candles were on the market. Most fragrance manufactures were making fragrances specially for paraffin wax, which is a byproduct of petroleum oil when refining gasoline. This created a significant problem because soy wax has a very different chemical composition. Our first dilemma was that most of the fragrances on the market were made from one hundred percent synthetics, which we wanted to avoid. We wanted to use pure essential oils, floral essences and/or natural extracts. Unfortunately most of these ingredients were either unstable at such high temperature, did not burn properly or had a very poor scent-throw. Our second dilemma, for people who want to enjoy a great fragrance but are also health conscience, is that soy wax burns about 20 degree cooler than paraffin wax. Because soy wax burns cooler it has a more difficult time forcing the fragrance into the air (scent-throw) and this is one reason most soy candles on the market are not using 100% soy.
Most soy candle companies will use a blend of paraffin and soy; then they can legally call it a “Soy Candle”. This blend enables the wax to burn at higher temperature and enhances the scent-throw compared to 100% soy wax. However, for health and environmental reasons we did not want to use any paraffin/petroleum wax.
