Why Soy Wax Candles Are Better for Your Home and the Environment

Why Soy Wax Candles Are Better for Your Home and the Environment

Candles have been used for centuries to create ambiance, provide light, and add a pleasant fragrance to homes. However, not all candles are created equal. Soy wax candles, in particular, offer numerous benefits for both your home and the environment. Here’s why you should consider switching to soy wax candles from Helm London.


Natural and Renewable

Soy wax is made from soybeans, a natural and renewable resource. Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, soy wax is biodegradable and does not release harmful toxins into the air. This makes soy wax candles a more environmentally friendly choice.

Cleaner Burn

One of the significant advantages of soy wax candles is their cleaner burn. Soy wax produces less soot compared to paraffin wax, reducing the amount of black residue that can accumulate on walls, ceilings, and furniture. This cleaner burn also means better air quality in your home, making soy wax candles a healthier option for you and your family.

Longer Lasting

Soy wax candles tend to burn slower than paraffin candles, providing a longer-lasting burn. This means you get more value for your money as your candles will last longer. Helm London’s soy wax candles are designed to offer extended burn times while maintaining a consistent and pleasant fragrance throughout.

Better Scent Throw

Soy wax has excellent scent-holding properties, which means it can effectively disperse fragrance when burned. Helm London’s soy wax candles are infused with high-quality essential oils, ensuring a rich and enduring scent experience. Whether you prefer the calming aroma of lavender or the invigorating scent of eucalyptus, soy wax candles can deliver a superior olfactory experience.

Eco-Friendly Production

The production of soy wax is generally more environmentally friendly than that of paraffin wax. Soybeans require less energy to grow and process, and the wax itself is biodegradable. Helm London’s commitment to sustainable practices ensures that their soy wax candles are not only good for your home but also for the planet.

Easy to Clean

Spills and drips from soy wax candles are easier to clean compared to paraffin wax. Soy wax is water-soluble, so you can easily clean it up with soap and warm water. This makes maintaining your candle holders and surfaces much simpler and less time-consuming.

Supporting Sustainable Agriculture

By choosing soy wax candles, you are supporting sustainable agriculture. Soybeans are a significant crop that supports many farmers and contributes to the agricultural economy. Helm London’s use of soy wax reflects their commitment to supporting sustainable and ethical practices in all aspects of their production.

Soy wax candles from Helm London offer numerous benefits over traditional paraffin candles. They are natural, renewable, and biodegradable, providing a cleaner, longer-lasting burn with a superior scent throw. By choosing soy wax candles, you are making a healthier choice for your home and a more sustainable choice for the environment. Embrace the benefits of soy wax candles and enjoy a cleaner, greener way to enhance your home’s ambiance.
