What is a Soy Candle?

Inspirational Soy Candle with Quote by Helen Keller - Johnston CandlesA soy candle is a fantastic way to brighten, enliven and improve any space. Not all soy candles are created equal, though, and different candlemakers have different standards.

What is a Soy Candle?

Soy candles are made from a sustainable, renewable product: the soybean. They’re non-toxic (unlike paraffin candles, which are bad for you and bad for the environment), and they’re ecologically friendly (unlike palm oil candles, which start in a horrible industry that damages earth’s fragile ecosystem).

Soy wax candles burn cleaner and longer than the blends or paraffins you buy at the store, too. They don’t release deadly chemicals into the air (most notably when you’re using hemp wicks, like we do).
