Why soy wax?

Here at Willow & Finn we create only hand poured, small batch, eco friendly refillable soy wax candles.

Hand poured and small batch because that way you get the best, and biggest fragrance distribution.  That means your candles will give off fragrance right until the bottom of the jar. With cotton wicks, for a clean and consistent burn.

So why sox wax candles?

Hand-poured soy wax candles offer various benefits compared to traditional paraffin wax candles, making them a popular choice for the eco-conscious  and those seeking a cleaner, longer-lasting candle option. Some of the key benefits include:

  1. Eco-friendly: Soy wax is made from soybean oil, a renewable and sustainable resource. In contrast, paraffin wax is derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource with a larger environmental impact.

  2. Cleaner burning: Soy wax candles produce less soot and fewer toxic chemicals when burned compared to paraffin wax candles. This results in cleaner air quality and reduced potential for respiratory issues or allergies.

  3. Longer-lasting: Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, which allows soy candles to burn slower and last longer. This provides better value for money and a more enjoyable candle experience.

  4. Better scent throw: Soy wax candles are known for their excellent scent throw, both when lit and unlit. The lower melting point of soy wax allows the fragrance to disperse more evenly and consistently throughout the room.

  5. Easy to clean: Soy wax is water-soluble, making it easy to clean up spills or residue with soap and water. Paraffin wax, on the other hand, can be more challenging to remove from surfaces.

  6. Supporting local farmers: By choosing soy wax candles, you are supporting local soybean farmers and contributing to a more sustainable agricultural industry.
