Many people love candles because they provide a pleasant scent and ambiance. However, some people are concerned about the health effects of burning candles made with paraffin wax. If you're one of those people, you'll be happy to know that there are alternatives to paraffin candles—namely, those made with coconut wax. But what exactly is coconut wax, and what are its benefits? Read on to find out.
What Is Coconut Wax?
Coconut wax is made from the oil of coconuts. Unlike paraffin wax, which is a byproduct of petroleum refinement, coconut wax is all-natural and renewable. As a result, it's considered a more eco-friendly. Coconut Wax is also biodegradable and paraffin is not. Our Coconut Wax comes from organic coconut meat.
In addition to being eco-friendly, coconut wax candles also have a number of other benefits. For one thing, they burn cleaner than paraffin candles—meaning that they don't release harmful chemicals into the air when burned.
Coconut wax candles also tend to burn longer than their paraffin counterparts. This means that you'll get more use out of them before needing to purchase new ones. And because they burn slowly and evenly, they produce less soot than paraffin candles.
While our candles are primarily made from coconut wax, we also blend in a small amount of other natural clean burning waxes to help harden the candles. These include US grown soy wax, Certified Organic Beeswax and Sustainably Sourced Palm Wax.
If you're looking for an all-natural, eco-friendly alternative to paraffin candles, look no further. Our coconut wax blend candles offer numerous benefits over their paraffin counterparts, including being cleaner-burning, eco-friendly, and longer-lasting. So if you're in the market for a new candle (or two), be sure to give coconut wax candles a try. You won't be disappointed!
