Hey there candle lovers!
For centuries, candles have been used to create a cozy and warm atmosphere at home. But not all candles are created equal! Did you know that many commercial candles contain harmful chemicals that can have negative effects on your health? That's why handmade soy candles offer a safer and more natural alternative. In this blog post, we'll explore the health benefits of using handmade soy candles versus other brands.
Natural, Non-Toxic Ingredients
At Scentfully, we believe in using natural, non-toxic ingredients to make our handmade soy candles. Soy wax is derived from soybeans, making it a renewable resource that doesn't release harmful chemicals when burned. In contrast, many commercial candles are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum and can release toxins like benzene and toluene when burned.
Better for Asthma and Allergy Sufferers
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, handmade soy candles are a great option. Soy wax is hypoallergenic and doesn't release irritants into the air, unlike traditional candles made with paraffin wax. This means that you can enjoy the benefits of burning candles without exacerbating asthma or allergy symptoms.
Not only are handmade soy candles better for your health, but they also burn cleaner and longer than traditional candles. They produce less soot and smoke, which can help reduce indoor air pollution. In addition, soy wax burns at a lower temperature, making it last longer than other types of wax.
At Scentfully, we use fragrance oils instead of essential oils to infuse our candles and wax melts with a wide variety of scents. These fragrance oils offer a variety of health benefits, including reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and even boosting your immune system. In contrast, commercial candles often use synthetic fragrances that can be harmful to your health.
In addition to being better for your health, handmade soy candles are also better for the environment. Soy wax is biodegradable, making it an eco-friendly option for candle lovers. It's also easy to clean up if spilled, as it can be removed with soap and water. In contrast, paraffin wax is not biodegradable and can harm the environment if not disposed of properly.
Overall, handmade soy candles offer many health benefits over traditional commercial candles. They are non-toxic, better for asthma and allergy sufferers, burn cleaner and longer, offer aromatherapy benefits, and are eco-friendly. At Scentfully, we take pride in our handmade soy candles, which are made with natural and sustainable ingredients. Try one of our candles today and experience the difference for yourself!
