In the last few years the soy bean plant has emerged as a new super plant because of its long history of providing health benefits and also as an alternative to non renewable resources. One trend that has emerged in the last decade is soy based wax candles. Soy candles burn cleaner and burn slower. Paraffin wax candles are petroleum based which is a non renewable resource. Also, paraffin wax candles tend to create soot when they burn for long periods which can leave stains and deposit unnecessary dust around the spot in which the candle had been burning. With soy based candles you will not have to deal with unsightly soot stains on walls or furniture and you can take pride in the fact that you are using a candle made from a renewable resource. And every bit of your soy candle can go to good use! Soy bean oil acts as a great moisturizer. The wax can be used in a massage or as a moisturizing treatment for the skin.
Recently at market we were introduced to a new line of candles that are soy based and smell utterly delightful. The Aspen Bay line of candles burn clean soy wax for 85 hours and come in these great keep sake jars that can be used as stylish containers once you are finished burning the candle. Just pop the candle into a refrigerator and the candle will harden for easy removal from the jar without all of the mess. Come in today and experience the five enticing fragrances: Citrus Berry, Moonsparkle, Fire, Pomegranate, Soothing
