Did you know that the P in Paraffin stands for Petroleum? Terrifying.
Paraffin candles that are sold in most stores, are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. These substances are released into the air while burning.
This is why Soy Wax Candles are now a thing.
Soy wax is an investment not only for yourself, but for the environment as well, being that it is biodegradable and classifies as a vegan renewable resource. Our candles are made from 100% soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown by our very own American Farmers. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they will not release toxins into the air as they burn.
A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with trace amounts of soot released as the candle burns. Paraffin candles often create a significant amount of black soot that collects on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. The soy candle may accumulate some black soot on the jar if not cared for properly, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles.
Soy wax has a lower melting point compared to traditional waxes, meaning it burns much slower + will burn 30-50% longer than traditional store bought candles. This means that if you purchase a candle that usually lasts you one full month, this one will most likely get you to the 1.5 month mark before getting to replenish.
The slower burning time allows for not only a longer lasting candle, but also for holding onto the scent from our essential oils and high quality fragrance oils. Because FMN candles burn slower than others, the scent is gradually released, removing any overwhelming wave of strong scent which can be unpleasant + overpowering to most ( no matter how nice the scent is).
Let's shop candles that smell clean, and actually are clean.
