A lot of our favourite candles such as Yankee are made with paraffin wax, which is made from crude oils (a fossil fuel). Soy wax on the other hand is made from renewable sources.
Research has found that paraffin wax can produce certain emissions that can compromise the air quality in your home, however the amount of these chemicals that are being released into the air are so minimal that most people are not affected by them. There have been many debates and articles about whether paraffin wax is bad for your health and if soy wax is better, but there is a lot of different opinions so suggest if you are interested in the findings that you do a quick Google search.
Soy wax is a more environmentally-friendly alternative that is considered to be higher quality so soy candles tend to have a higher price tag. On average from a quick Google search, they can cost anything up to around £45 per candle. So at £8.50 a jar, these soy wax candles are on the more budget friendly end of the scale.
I received one of these lovely candles as a gift from a friend for the birth of our baby and I am in love with the fragrances. They're strong enough to be noticable without giving you a headache in the process.
I love the look of the candles as well. The branding of the candles is subtle and will go in any room so you can easily keep your candle out on display.
