Spice Up Your Life with a Soy Candle
Stop using beeswax candles that aren’t good for you or the environment and bring home soy candles instead. Your house will thank you too: they’re an easy way to rejuvenate your décor.
Soy Candle Benefits
Since they’re made from vegetable oil that’s derived from soybeans, soy candles are eco-friendly and don’t contain toxins that are found in regular beeswax candles. This is because they aren’t produced with paraffin, a dangerous substance that releases carbon dioxide into the air and is hazardous to human health.
Paraffin candles are known to be carcinogenic. A study in which candle fumes were analyzed found that paraffin wax candles emit harmful toxins that are linked to health conditions such as lung cancer.
What you put in your home should be contributing to your beautiful sanctuary, not causing you or your family harm, so make the switch from paraffin to soy candles.
Perfume for Your Home
Although you might not want to light your soy candles because they’re so pretty, there’s no doubt that you’ll be tempted by their amazing scents. Besides, they’re made to be enjoyed! Research shows that we’re greatly affected by scent so infusing your home with fragrance notes that have a history of uplifting your mood will create a positive atmosphere.
A soy candle with wonderful fragrance personality is Aquiesse Black Fig and Cypress. It contains an invigorating blend of intriguing ingredients. These include petitgrain which is taken from the leaves of the Seville bitter orange tree to create a delicious woody citrus scent, and Mediterranean Cypress which gives the candle a spicy and pine fragrance.
Soy candle scent throws well, meaning that it fills the room with a fragrance that lasts for a long time. It also creates a purer smell that you can enjoy, with no traces of chemicals or harsh smells that sometimes linger in the air when you light up paraffin candles. By using soy candles you’re also protecting your furniture: they burn in a cleaner way, not producing a lot of soot which can annoyingly get into your furniture and kill the mood.
Soothe Your Soul
When candles are organic and healthy, they can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Place fragrant soy candles on your dinner table during a date with your partner to add romance to the mood, or light up some candles after a stressful day when you want to recharge your batteries. Since soy candles such as the Aquiesse Black Fig and Cypress have up to 100 hours of burning time, you have the chance to lie back with a face mask or take a nice long bath without running out of soothing light.
Soy Candles as Décor
Besides for enjoying your candles, you can also use them as décor pieces in your home. Choose soy candles that contain designs or colors on them that work with your current interior decorating scheme. The Aquiesse Black Fig and Cypress is not just deliciously fragranced but also looks chic and sophisticated with its blend of earthy tones, such as white and brown. This makes it versatile for various types of décor, whether you’ve got a minimalist design or something trendier. If you love the idea of pampering, this candle will also look great among decorative pumice stones in your spa-inspired bathroom.
There are many good reasons to use soy candles and display them in your home. From ensuring cleaner indoor air to adding a stylish touch, they’re one of the hottest new décor and beauty items to own.
