Why Heart & Home Fragrances Chooses Natural Soy Wax

Candles have been a go-to home accessory for a very, very long time. They have the ability to transform your space into a completely different scent-scape and elevate your mood with the flick of a wick. However, not all candles smell, burn, or are made the same.

At Heart & Home Fragrances, we believe that the materials we choose for our candles play a crucial role in your candle buying experience. That’s why we’re proud to use natural soy wax for our candles, offering you a product that is not only high-quality but also environmentally friendly. Let’s explore the different candle materials and discover why soy wax is the superior choice.


The Downside of Traditional Paraffin Wax

Paraffin wax has been the popular candle wax choice for many years but, it is derived from petroleum. To obtain the paraffin wax, this process involves extracting non-renewable fossil fuels, which contributes to deterioration to the environment. When burned, paraffin wax releases harmful chemicals, including toluene and benzene, which can pollute indoor air and pose health risks.


The Benefits of Soy Wax

In contrast, soy wax is a natural and sustainable alternative. Made from hydrogenated soybean oil, soy wax is derived from renewable resources. Here are some of the key benefits of choosing soy wax candles:

Cleaner Burn

One of the standout advantages of soy wax is its clean-burning properties. Unlike paraffin, soy wax produces minimal soot, reducing the risk of blackening walls, ceilings, and furniture. This makes it an excellent choice for maintaining a pristine home environment.


Soy wax is biodegradable and far less harmful to the environment. By opting for soy-based candles, you’re supporting sustainability and contributing to the reduction of your carbon footprint. At Heart & Home Fragrances, we’re committed to eco-conscious practices, and our soy wax candles reflect this dedication.

Longer Lasting

Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature than paraffin, which means our candles have a longer burn time. You can enjoy the warm glow and sensational fragrance of Heart & Home candles for extended periods, making them a more economical choice in the long run.

Superior Scent

The natural composition of soy wax allows for a more consistent and true-to-life scent. Whether you prefer the spicy warmth of cinnamon, the vibrant zest of citrus, or the softness of aloe, our soy wax candles ensure that your favorite fragrances are dispersed equally throughout your home.


A Commitment to Quality & Sustainability

We prioritize quality and sustainability in every aspect of our candle-making process. Our soy wax candles are crafted with care, blending natural scents and materials to create a product that brings harmony, serenity, and a touch of nature to your home.

Our dedication to using soy wax is part of our broader mission to offer eco-friendly candle options. We believe that by choosing renewable, biodegradable materials, we can provide you with a superior candle experience that aligns with your values.
