It’s only when I started Caring Canary and became an arm-chair candle connoisseur, that I realised so many candle brands contained nasty toxic chemicals. I had been an avid buyer and burner of these popular candle brands and was regularly lighting them all over my house, even next to the bed in my boudoir. Yuk!
I carefully chose ECOYA candles to feature in Caring Canary care packages because the extensive research I did led me to believe they were made from 100% all natural soy wax (and they come in really pretty colourful boxes, which I love). ECOYA is the featured candle brand in Caring Canary care packages, including our best sellers The Indulge, Keep Calm Kit, New Parents, Deepest Condolences and many more, because soy wax makes them a healthy, non-toxic option.
I was exhibiting at an event recently and one of my neighbouring stall holders was a candle maker and she told me that a lot of candle companies don’t use 100% natural soy wax to make their candles. I thought everyone was on the soy band wagon by now, but alas, many still use paraffin and other chemicals. If you want to understand more about what makes soy wax a much better candle choice, ECOYA released an informative blog post to clear up some myths around the soy wax vs paraffin debate.
Here’s an excerpt from ECOYA’s blog post. Enjoy the read…
