Are soy candles better than paraffin wax candles?

Phthalate-free and paraben-free Mind Your Bees soy wax candles are a safe and natural alternative to petroleum-based paraffin wax candles.

Paraffin wax is made from petroleum oil and creates harmful by-products when melted.

Soy wax contains nothing artificial so it burns cleaner and longer than paraffin wax. Combined with beeswax, one of the oldest materials used for candles, Mind Your Bees candles burn up to 50 hours and also have a great scent throw.

What is special about soy wax candles?

Soy wax is made from natural resources. It's the perfect green choice for candles over other tions, it burns longer than paraffin wax due to its low melting point and emits less soot. Adding beeswax to soy creates a denser candle which can give it a longer burn time.

Are Mind Your Bees candles non-toxic?

Phthalate-free and paraben-free Mind Your Bees candles are a safe and natural alternative to petroleum-based paraffin wax candles.

What about dyes or other additives?

Nope. Our candles are made with phthalate-free fragrance or essential oil and lead-free wicks, with a blend eco soy wax & Canadian beeswax.
