"The Beauty of Imperfections: Why Natural Candles Can Form Craters"

Now we all know, candles are not just a source of light and fragrance, they are also a form of self-care and relaxation. With an increasing amount of people choosing to prioritize their health, more are becoming aware of the harmful toxins all around us in everyday-use products. Since more and more are desiring to live a cleaner lifestyle, WE CHOOSE TO GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT! Candles made from pure and natural ingredients!

Coconut soy wax is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional paraffin wax, and for good reason! Here are some of the reasons to use coconut soy wax for candle making:

  1. Eco-Friendly: Coconut soy wax is made from natural and renewable resources and is biodegradable, making it a more environmentally friendly option compared to paraffin wax.

  2. Clean Burn: Coconut soy wax burns cleanly and does not produce any harmful fumes, making it a safe option for those with allergies or sensitivities to certain chemicals.

  3. Long-lasting: Coconut soy wax has a longer burn time compared to paraffin wax, which means you can enjoy your candle for longer without having to constantly replace it.

  4. Good Scent Throw: Coconut soy wax is known for having a strong scent throw, allowing you to fully enjoy the fragrance of your candle.

  5. Versatile: Coconut soy wax can be used to create a wide range of candle types, including jar candles, pillar candles, votive candles, and more.

  6. Vegan and Cruelty-Free: Coconut soy wax candles are typically vegan and cruelty-free, making them a popular choice for animal lovers and those who live a plant-based lifestyle.

Coconut soy wax candles, in particular, are an extremely desirable choice for their clean burn, longevity, strong scent throw and eco-friendly nature. 

Have you ever noticed that sometimes your coconut soy wax candle forms craters and lumps? While it may seem like a flaw, it's actually a sign of the candle's purity and quality. Here's why:

"The uglier, the purer!"

Indicator of Natural Ingredients: Coconut soy wax is a blend of coconut oil and soybeans, both of which are natural and renewable resources. Unlike paraffin wax, coconut soy wax is free of harsh chemicals, additives and synthetic fragrances. This means that the wax can behave differently than other types of candles, leading to the formation of craters and lumps. (Which is perfectly normal for natural wax.)

  1. Improved Burn Quality: Coconut soy wax has a lower melting point compared to paraffin wax, which makes it more resistant to overheating. This means that coconut soy wax candles tend to burn more evenly, reducing the likelihood of tunneling and wax waste. The craters and lumps on the surface of the candle can also help to regulate the flame, ensuring a safe and consistent burn.
  2. Longer Burn Time: Coconut soy wax candles tend to last longer than other types of candles, thanks to their slower burn rate. This means that you can enjoy the candle's fragrance and ambiance for a longer period of time. The craters and lumps on the surface of the candle can also help to prevent over-consumption of the wax, ensuring that you get the most out of your purchase.

If you (amazing human reading this) ever notice craters and lumps on your coconut soy wax candle, don't be discouraged or alarmed. These flaws are actually an indicator of purity and will not have a negative impact on the overall burn or quality of your candle. We reassure you: Do not panic! Embrace the beauty of imperfections and enjoy the benefits of a candle made from pure and natural ingredients
