Magnolia Candlers, L.L.C. - All-Natural Hand Poured, Double-Scented 100% Pure Soy Candles
Dueling Candles - Soy or Paraffin - Which is Better?

Undoubtedly, if we had any question, we wouldn’t be making soy candles!  We’ve come up with our top ten reasons why soy candles are better than paraffin wax candles. 


  1. Soy candles definitely last  longer than paraffin wax candles due to soy's lower melting point.
·            - On average, a soy candle lasts up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles.
·            - The popular 14-ounce container (filled with paraffin wax) will last up to 75 hours on a
                continuous burn.  A similar 14-ounce container filled with soy was will last over 100
                hours.
   2.  Burning a soy candle does NOT release any toxins into the air.  They are clean-burning.  That’s
        because our soy candles are all natural – no paraffin – no toxins!  Soy candles produce little
        soot.  With two of our team members being retired science teachers, they will tell you that all
        burning releases some soot.  The important thing about our soy candles is that you won’t find
        any stains on your curtains or blinds from our soy candles!  The black residue at the bottom of
        the candles is also not present when our candles burn to the end.
   3.  Paraffin is a product of petroleum.  When paraffin wax candles burn, carcinogens are released
         into the air.  As most of you probably know already, carcinogens can cause cancer and other
         health-related illnesses.  California researchers have identified up to seven major toxins in
         paraffin wax.  (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986)
    4.  Soybeans from our farmers are renewable resources.  Soy wax is made from soybeans.  Buying
         and burning soy candles helps the American agricultural industry.
   5.  With soy candles made from a renewable resource, you will make more efficient use of an
        energy source.  It is definitely eco-friendly!
   6.  Because soy wax is a product from soybean plants, you will find that soy wax is biodegradable
        If you accidentally spill some soy wax onto your table, it’s easy to clean up with just soap and
        water – no scraping necessary!  We already tried this.
   7. The fragrance from a soy candle spreads around an entire room longer than paraffin candles,
        offering a pleasant welcome to your guests.
   8.  Although we don’t want you to touch the flame of a lighted soy candle, we will tell you that
        touching the melted wax will not burn your finger.
   9.  Our soy candles do not contain any gel.  Even though gel candles will not explode, heat
        build-up can cause glass candle containers to shatter.
 10. We use cotton wicks for our candles.  Cotton wicks also are also eco-friendly.  Wicks in the
        United States cannot, by law, have lead in them; however non-cotton wicks do produce the
        soot common to a burning paraffin wax candle.
