Frequently asked questions

How is Soy different to normal wax?

Plant / vegetable based wax is a natural type of wax made by hydrogenating vegetable oil such as soya bean oil. Natural waxes are fast becoming the bext choice for candles because they're much friendlier to ourselves and the environment. It is an eco friendly, renewable alternative to parrafin wax - that burns well and is much less likely to soot, making it a friendly alternative to our homes and bodies. Soy wax burns for up to twice as long as paraffin wax (our standard wine bottle candle will burn for over 40 hours) and provides a much cleaner burn - so you can say goodbye to the pesky waste wax you often see with other candles.
