Eco Friendly and Health Conscience

 Many people prefer soy candles over paraffin because they are 100% natural. Paraffin candles contain more than 11 carcinogenic compounds, which are not only harmful to the environment but also harmful to the body. This is visually evident in the black soot around the candle jar. Soy candles are nontoxic and do not emit any petrol-carbon soot, which can blacken walls and add toxic carcinogens to the body. For the eco-conscious, soy candles are also naturally biodegradable and is easy to remove from any surface with warm to hot water and soap. Most soy candle wicks are often made from natural hemp or cotton as well.

Renewable Source
Paraffin contains petroleum. With the unexpected increases in the price petroleum every day, people are interested in using less petroleum and looking for alternatives. Soy is abundant and always a renewable source. Because soybeans are renewable, they are considerably cheaper because they are readily available. Use of soy candles also supports the American farm industry.

Cost Effective

The soybean oil lowers the melting point of the candle, which means it burns longer and cooler than paraffin candles . Soy candles burn 30 - 50% longer than paraffin and beeswax candles. Considering they not only burn cleaner... they burn longer, moneywise, they're a better deal.


The lower melting point also affects the candle scent and is often called a "throw scent," which means it fills the air and room with a scent. As the soy melts, it leaves a larger melted wax pool around the wick, which is where the essential oils evaporate in the air. Many people often get headaches from the strong, chemical throw scent of paraffin candles. However, soy candles have a lasting yet very clean smell because they are natural.


There are no side effects from using soy candles. The only concern is the labeling of "soy." Unfortunately, there are no strict guidelines to using the word "soy" nor are there requirements for listed ingredients. At times, many candles claim they are soy when in fact they are not. However, soy candles are now available right here at Desert Valley Gifts, LLC. We offer a fully customizable candle with over 500 scents to choose from. All of our Scents are Premium 'A' Grade skin safe fragrances. We also use all natural cotton wicks.
