Importance of Soy Bean Wax with Dierdre

Welcome to the F.L.Y. Girl Candles Blog!

Hello, lovely candle enthusiasts! It’s Deirdre here, the proud owner of F.L.Y. Girl Candles. Today, I want to share with you a core decision in our candle-making process that is very close to my heart—our choice to use soy wax in all our candles.

Why Soy Wax?

The Roots of Soy Wax: Soy wax is derived from the soybean, a species of legume native to East Asia. The humble soybean plays a significant role in various traditional foods like soy milk, tofu, and tofu skin. But beyond its culinary uses, the soybean offers an amazing, eco-friendly option for crafting candles—soy wax.

Longer Lasting and Cleaner Burning: One of the biggest advantages of soy wax is its ability to provide a longer-lasting and cleaner burn compared to traditional paraffin wax. Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature, which not only makes your favorite candles last longer but also ensures that they burn more evenly, reducing the likelihood of tunneling. This means more time to enjoy the soothing glow of your candle, with less waste.

100% Vegan, Renewable, and Non-Toxic: Soy wax aligns beautifully with our ethos here at F.L.Y. Girl Candles. It is 100% vegan, made from renewable resources, and biodegradable. Choosing soy wax helps us create products that are not only better for you but also better for the planet. It's non-toxic, making it a safer choice for homes like yours and mine where air quality matters.

My Commitment to You and the Planet

I chose soy wax for our candles because I wanted to offer a product that stands for something more than just ambiance. Our candles are crafted to be part of your self-care ritual in a way that you can feel good about—free from toxins and environmentally harmful practices.

Soy wax candles do not release toxins into the air, ensuring that your home stays a clean, safe haven. This commitment to health and sustainability is at the core of why F.L.Y. Girl Candles exists—to light up your world without dimming the planet's future.

Enjoy the Glow Longer

Another reason to love soy wax candles is their longevity. Because they burn slower, you get to savor your relaxation time without rushing through the experience. It's about making moments last and truly indulging in your "me time."

Our decision to use soy wax is a testament to our commitment to you and the environment. Each candle from F.L.Y. Girl Candles promises not just a delightful scent but also peace of mind, knowing that you are contributing to a greener planet.

Thank you for choosing to walk this sustainable journey with us. Your support not only lights up candles but also ignites change. Let’s continue to spread light and love, one soy wax candle at a time.

With warmth and gratitude,

Deirdre
