John Masters Organics is pleased to introduce the first in a new line of all natural soy wax candles. Handmade from GMO-free soy wax and pure organic essential oils, these long-burning candles use lead-free, all-cotton wicks and reclaimed glass containers for an indulgent aroma experience.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. This hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated, which dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. Soy wax burns much cleaner than paraffin wax, which can emit carcinogens like benzene and toluene. It is naturally biodegradable and cleans up with soap and water. And the left over bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.
We chose to scent our first soy wax candle with a warm variation of our beloved blood orange & vanilla aroma, found in some of our most popular products. Containing organic essential oils of orange and grapefruit, as well as pure vanilla, our new Blood Orange & Vanilla Soy Wax Candle is a relaxing indulgence, and creates a soothing mood any time of day.
