The Illuminating Choice: Unveiling the Benefits of Coconut-Soy Wax Blend in Premium Candles

November 14, 2023

Joa Bath and Body's new candles

Candles have been a symbol of warmth, tranquility, and ambiance for centuries, but not all candles are created equal. With an array of options available, it's essential to understand the differences between popular candle waxes – paraffin, soy wax, and coconut-soy wax. In this guide, we'll explore the characteristics of each wax type and shed light on why more natural waxes are considered a luxury in the world of candles.

Paraffin Wax:

Paraffin wax, derived from petroleum, has been a candle-making staple for many years. Known for its affordability and ability to hold color and fragrance well, paraffin candles are widely available. However, they come with downsides. Burning paraffin candles may release potentially harmful by-products like benzene and toluene into the air, contributing to indoor air pollution.

Soy Wax:

Soy wax, a vegetable-based wax made from soybeans, has gained popularity as a more eco-friendly alternative to paraffin. Soy candles burn cleaner, producing less soot and emitting fewer toxins. They are also biodegradable, making them a more environmentally conscious choice. Soy wax candles often have a longer burn time than paraffin candles, providing extended enjoyment.

Coconut-Soy Wax:

A rising star in the candle world is the coconut-soy wax blend. This combination of coconut and soy wax offers the best of both worlds – the clean burn of soy and the excellent scent throw of coconut wax. Coconut-soy candles often have a creamy texture and an even burn, providing a luxurious and aesthetically pleasing experience.

Which is Better?

Choosing the best wax ultimately depends on your preferences. If affordability is a priority, paraffin may be the go-to option. However, if you're environmentally conscious and prioritize a cleaner burn, soy or coconut-soy blends might be more suitable.

The Luxury of Natural Waxes:

Natural waxes like soy and coconut-soy blends are often considered luxurious for several reasons. Firstly, they are renewable resources, making them more sustainable than petroleum-based paraffin. Additionally, these waxes burn cleanly, reducing indoor air pollution and creating a healthier environment. The aesthetic appeal of natural waxes, with their smooth textures and minimalistic appearance, adds to the luxury factor.

While paraffin candles may offer a strong scent throw, the health and environmental benefits of coconut-soy wax make it the superior choice. Joa Bath and Body is proud to prioritize your well-being by offering candles that not only elevate your space but also contribute to a cleaner, greener planet. So, light up your space with the warmth of a consciously chosen candle and elevate your ambiance to new heights
