If you haven’t had the chance to try burning soy wax instead of traditional paraffin, you could be missing out on a host of benefits for your nose and your health. In fact, burning soy wax in melt or candle form is a much better option than traditional paraffin for many reasons:
#1. Soy Wax is Natural
Derived from the soybean, soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature. Soy wax contains nothing artificial, which makes it a better alternative to paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum oil and produces harmful by-products when burned or melted.

#2. Soy Wax Delivers a Cleaner Burn
Paraffin candles are associated with the blackness that accumulates on their jars and on surrounding walls and counters. However, soy candles give off very little of this soot which allows for a more pleasing appearance and easier breathing. In addition, soy candles are also non-toxic.

#3. Soy Wax is Good for Earth
After harvesting, the soy beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. This is the pure soy wax we make our candleswith. Soy is biodegradable and cleans up with water.

#4. Soy Wax has a Lower Melting Point
From a safety standpoint, soy wax is the better choice because it has a very low melting point, it will melt at around 45C which is like warm bath water. This means less risk of burns should you accidentally spill any melted wax on your skin.

#5. Soy Wax Scents are Stronger
Because soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax, the scent from its essential or fragrance oils is more pleasant and stronger-smelling than the scents added to paraffin. Here at Ancient Wisdom we add 20% Fragrance onto Soy Wax Melts so you can compare the strength to one 10ml bottle of Fragrance Oil.

#6. Soy Wax Scents can be used on the Skin
Did you know your soy candle infused with essential oils makes a nourishing massage oil? Soy is only slightly warmer than your body temperature, so there is no risk of burning the skin.
Simply light the candle and wait about 20-30 minutes until a melt pool forms. Extinguish the flame, dip your fingers into the oil (or drip onto the body) and apply directly to the skin. The warmed oil can be directly massaged into the skin, leaving the skin smooth, soft, and pleasantly scented. Ancient Wisdom Soy Wax Massage Candles are made with pure blends of Essential Oils and Jojoba Oil.
