Is Paraffin Toxic? Why We Use Parasoy Wax in Our Candles

Why Your Choice of Candle Wax Matters

Hey there, candle enthusiasts! Did you know that the U.S. candle industry is valued at over $3 billion? Yeah, that's billion with a 'B'! With so many options out there, picking the right candle might seem overwhelming. But here's the scoop: the type of wax in your candle isn't just about the scent or ambiance - it's about what's healthy for your home and you. In this article, we're diving deep into why we're head over heels for our parasoy wax blend and why it might just be the perfect fit for your space. Let's get into it!

What's the Deal with Parasoy Wax?

So, you might be thinking, "What's parasoy?" It's a mix of usually right around 50% soy wax and 50% paraffin wax. This combo gives us the best of both worlds for our handmade candles. Soy offers that natural touch we love, while paraffin gives us that strong scent throw we're all about.

The Lowdown on Soy Wax

Soy wax is all about keeping it clean and green. It's made from soybeans, so it's renewable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly. Plus, it burns cleaner, meaning no nasty toxins in the air. You get a longer-lasting candle that's good for you and Mother Earth.

Is Paraffin Toxic? Why Paraffin Isn't All Bad

Hold up, isn't paraffin the villain in the candle world? Not quite! When blended with soy, paraffin plays a crucial role. It helps the candle burn evenly and gives us that fantastic scent throw we can't get enough of. Plus, it's easy to work with, for both you and me. I can rely on our parasoy blend wax to be consistent and of high-quality, and when lighting your candle you get that perfect burn every time.

Furthermore, reputable sources, including scholarly articles, affirm that paraffin wax is safe when used in properly vented spaces. This adds another layer of assurance, ensuring you can enjoy our candles without any concerns for your well-being.

Benefits of Our Supplier's Parasoy Wax

  • Excellent Hot Throw: Meaning your room will smell amazing, no kidding!
  • Toxin-Free: Yep, no nasty stuff here.
  • FDA Approved: Safe and sound for your home.
  • Gluten-Free: Because why should your candles have gluten anyway?

Additional Benefits of Paraffin Wax

  • Consistent Burn: Ensures your candle burns evenly from start to finish.
  • Cost Effective: Allows us to offer you high-quality candles without breaking the bank.

Why "Soy Blend" on Our Labels Instead of "Parasoy"?

You might have noticed our candle labels say "Soy Blend" rather than "Parasoy." Why? Well, for starters, "Soy Blend" just rolls off the tongue a bit easier and gives a sleeker look on our packaging. We opted for "Soy Blend" because it's a more familiar term used by both candle shoppers and makers.

A Little Bias Never Hurt: But Trust Your Instincts!

Continuing to keep it real (and transparent) around here - we're pretty smitten with our own parasoy blend, but we totally get that everyone's preferences are different. Maybe coconut wax is calling your name with its tropical flair, or perhaps you're feeling the earthy vibes of hemp wax (yes! hemp!) or the natural goodness of beeswax.

And we're all about self-care and setting the right home ambiance around here, if another wax option aligns better with your lifestyle, we're here for it.  At the end of the day, it's about finding what resonates with you and makes your space feel like home. So go ahead, follow that gut feeling and choose the wax that speaks to your soul. Trust us, your nose will thank you either way! 😉

Wrapping It Up: The Wax Blend That's a Game-Changer

There you have it, folks! From its impeccable hot throw to its toxin-free nature, parasoy wax blends truly offer the best of both worlds. So the next time you light up one of our JBP candles, know that you're not just indulging in a luxurious aroma (we only use Safe & Clean fragrances anyway) - you're making a conscious choice for a cleaner, more efficient burn. Cheers to elevating your home experience, one candle at a time!🕯️
