Why Soy? Top 5 Reasons You Should Be Buying Soy Candles

When shopping for candles, we tend to pick them by color, size and fragrance. But is the type of wax something you should consider as well?

There are many different types of wax candlemakers use and each has its own place, however Rainy Day Co primarily uses soy and soy blend waxes and here are our top 5 reasons why:

1. Environmentally Friendly

Soy wax is made from renewable, environmentally friendly sources.

2. Slow Burn

Soy wax has a lower melting point allowing it to burn slower than waxes like paraffin, which means your candle will last longer. 

3. Easy Cleanup

Soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble and can be cleaned simply with soap and water.

4. Clean Burn

Unlike many waxes, soy burns cleaner meaning it doesn't put off a black soot. Some waxes produce black soot that can stain walls, curtains and other things inside the home.
