Burn Soy Candles the Right Way

Learn What Not to Do When You Burn Soy Candles

What not to do when you burn your soy candles

What not to do when you light your scented soy candles for the first time!

You have made beautiful scented soy candles!

Success at last!

However, if you do not burn your highly scented soy candles correctly the first time they are lit, they may never burn correctly during the remaining lifetime  of the candle.

You ask…   How do you burn a soy candle correctly the first time?

Always light your soy candle when you have the time to allow it to completely burn across the top the first time. Normally, this takes 3-4 hours, because the “melt pool” must reach completely across the top of the entire container. As you can see from my demo candle, once the tunneling starts, it continues.

This paraffin wax candle belonged to a friend of mine. I saved it after it hit the trash, since it was  perfect to demonstrate how  burning a soy candle improperly will “RUIN” them. Not only was it burned for to short a period the first time, but to long of a period in subsequent lighting’s.

The beautiful thing about soy wax candles when they are cared for, is they burn cleanly without smoking, or giving off candle soot.  Plus, they burn slow, giving you roughly 50% more life than a paraffin candle, while giving off a good high quality scent throw.

The soot on the side of the candle is another thing to notice.  Can you see the black smoke residue on the side of the candle container? This container candle was made from paraffin wax, and it smoked.  Paraffin based petroleum carbon molecules emitted when the paraffin candle is burned  have been show to release a number of Carcinogens. (Cancer causing agents)

So Go Green with Soy! Use all natural soy wax made from 100% USA homegrown soybean! Another step to support “our” farmers while taking one more step to reduce dependency on foreign oil!

    This information is bit incomplete, I must say that the homework was done really good, but the problem came when you tried to assemble this information and present it. No doubt you did your best and I appreciate the fact that this will help as well, you should read other posts as well to make your posting really to the point and really understandable. I will PM you some of the threads about this topic so that the next time you visit the forum and post something really informative like this, it will be more effective and helpful to all.

    Nice one! If I could write like this I would be well chuffed. The more I see articles of such quality as this (which is rare), the more I think there might be a future for the Net. Keep it up, as it were.
