Natural soya wax
Soy candles are made from soy wax, which is hydrogenated soybean oil. Soy wax was invented in 1992 by Michael Richards who was looking for a cheaper alternative to beeswax. As he entered the candle industry he realized there was a growing demand for natural wax candles.
All of our candles and wax melts for oil burners are handmade using 100% Eco friendly Soya wax from replenishable sources and use 100% natural wicks. They are ideal for anyone worried about the environment and particularly good for households with people suffering from asthma or allergies due to the cleaner burning nature of the natural wax (up to 90% less soot than paraffin wax candles).
Although Soy Candles are slightly more expensive than paraffin wax candles, there are many benefits to using soyawax as a candle wax instead of traditional waxes, such as beeswax, paraffin wax and palm wax. Our wax is:
Many people are searching for green products to replace more traditional ones that are unfriendly towards the environment. By using soy wax candles you are choosing to support the environment. Feel great while still enjoying the ambiance you are accustomed to.
Soy is a resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption.
Soy is continually producible without damaging the ecosystem and does not contribute to deforestation as palm oil wax does.
Safe for Children
Our soy wax is non-toxic and burns at a cooler temperature for worry-free use around children.
Cleaner burning - Soy wax gives off up to 90% less soot than paraffin wax and is a huge plus to use in households with people suffering from asthma etc. Soot should be avoided because it is very unhealthy and can eventually coat furniture and walls.
Longer burn times - Soy wax has a lower melting point therefore can burn up to twice as long as similar sized paraffin wax candles.
Superior Scent Throw - Soy wax candles have an excellent scent throw when burning and even when cold have been known to fragrance a room.
Easily cleaned - Soy wax spillages can easily be cleaned up with warm soapy water, thus making any accidental spillages easy to deal with and candle containers easily cleaned and completely reusable.
Our soy wax is Kosher Certified, proving our commitment to providing safe and healthy products.
So, take a little time out for yourself and enjoy these natural candles!

Soy wax has a lower melt point so remember to keep your soy candle out of direct sunlight as this may cause it to 'sweat'. If this happens, remove your candle from the heat source and allow to cool. It will quickly return to its normal state. Also, please remember not to leave it in a hot car as it will melt!! Equally in extremely cold conditions it is liable to freeze and hence expand or produce pockets in the wax. A gradual return to normal room temperature should return your candle to its former glory!
