Soy Candles: Wait But Why?
It's weird and I'm not quite sure when this all happened. I have gotten to a point in my life where I am checking the thread count on my bed sheets and NOW my new thing is secretly requesting/ hoping for soy candles as gifts.. Does this mean I am getting old? Or maybe it's the start of my TWILIGHT years in my 20's!
ANYWHO on this... why do we love our candles so much? I don't know about you but for me there is nothing I like better than to light my favourite soy wax candle. It creates a sense of tranquility and serenity. A scented candle releases something soothing that gives your body an extra sense of calm. Not to mention they have been used for thousands of years in spiritual and religious ceremonies in order to celebrate special occasions and in meditative moments.
I must admit I am quite picky with my scented candles. Like wine I think you have your favourites and it all comes down to personal choice. For instance, I am not into sweet and fruity smells, I much prefer a frangipani or dry scent.
A lot of people associate lighting candles with winter however I see it as a more transeasonal activity. Kellie who works for Canningvale when asked what scent of candle she liked, replied with the "beach" meaning coconut, salt sea water essentially all things summer inspired.
Sox candles are so versatile and make the perfect addition to any room in the house.
Add a candle to your bathroom to create a spa like atmosphere. Put a candle in the kitchen to create a romantic dinner. Make your lounge room cozy and inviting with the burning of a soy candle. Host the ultimate fairy like garden party with flickering candles. Last but not least my favourite add a candle to the bedroom, it becomes the perfect partner!
Also do you know the difference between a soy wax candle and just a regular superior candle?
I didn't really either until now .....Below are some interesting facts for you.
Why Does Soy Wax Make A Superior Candle?
They release fragrance naturally and for longer.
Soy wax candles actually last for 25 - 50% longer than paraffin candles, making them more economical.
They are made from an environmentally friendly, renewable resource.
They are water soluble. You can wash out your jars with hot, soapy water, which means they can be reused.
They are biodegradable.
Lastly.. The Canningvale candles are made from superior American Soy Wax.
