Candles are used by most households for many reasons, they can be used for home decorating, parties of all kinds, setting the mood for a romantic evening and giving your home that awesome aroma, from all those scented candles. Have you ever thought about, what kind of wax the candles are made out of? Did you know that paraffin wax candles emit eleven known toxins while burning, including toluene, benzene, and formaldehyde, which are known carcinogens? So, why would anybody want to burn paraffin wax candles and jeopardize their health?
Peppermint Kiss Soy Candle
For this review, I received one Peppermint Kiss 13.5oz Luxe Highball Soy Candle! I absolutely love candles, so this was a real treat. The candle that I received is suppose to have a wintergreen spearmint and peppermint scent, but I just can't seem to smell it, maybe they just forgot this one. One thing I can say for sure, is that it burns clean and the soy oil feels really awesome on your skin, making it feel super soft!
SOi candles are created from soy oil, that is naturally rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and lecithin, which will benefit the skin when applied topically. The melt pool of oil can be used as a skin moisturizer and help remedy dry or irritated areas. It can also be applied as a soothing remedy to sunburned skin, eczema, psoriasis, and poison oak!
The SOi Candles are hand-poured using 100%, FDA approved, kosher soy oil. They are available in a variety of sizes, burn about 140 hours (about 40% longer than wax candles), are soot-free and do not emit any harmful toxins (like Benzene) into your home. Unlike wax, soy oil burns coolly at 106º into a reflective pool of soy that always remains warm to the touch and will not burn little hands.
Benefits of SOi Candles:
- Cleaner Burning - last approximately 40% longer, than a paraffin candle - soot free - does not emit any harmful toxins, like Benzene into your home.
- The SOi candle is created from soy oil that is naturally in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and lecithin, which is benefits the skin, when applied topically.
- Bio-degradable and Water soluble.
- Soy is a renewable resource that is produced by American Farmers.
- Because their soy burns cooler, the fragrance of the candles will stay true.
