Why Soy Wax Candles are the Best Choice for Your Home

Posted by Adam Kerrins on

Find out why soy scented candles are the best option for your home in Australia with the knowledgeable and experienced team at The Scent Lab. We firmly believe that our personalised soy candles are a superior choice when it comes to creating a relaxing atmosphere with a long-lasting scent.



In addition to being natural and sustainable, soy wax candles also generate far less soot than paraffin candles and don't discharge any chemicals into the air. Candles made of soy wax are healthier for both people and domestic animals and are more eco-friendly.


Soy candles tend to cost more, but they burn more slowly and up to 50% longer than normal candles, making them the more economical choice over time. When the wick is kept at a quarter-inch length, soy candles are noted for burning more evenly than normal candles and for leaving little to no leftover wax on the jar's surfaces.

You may have seen that soy candles are typically kept in jars and other containers. This is because soy wax often melts at a lower temperature than conventional wax mixes and is too soft to maintain the form of a standard pillar candle.

Natural Ingredients

Soy wax, a refined version of soybean oil, is used to make soy candles organically. By crushing soybeans and hydrogenating the extracted oil, which causes it to harden at room temperature and take on the viscosity of wax, the residue substance is used to make soy scented candles. Soy wax is a sort of organic vegetable oil since it is created from soybean oil, so you can get peace of mind knowing your candles are made naturally.
