Our American Soybean Wax burns pure, with beauty and aroma, plus, it burns longer than paraffin AND is made from a naturally renewable source!

For best results, please follow these burning suggestions: burn 4 to 5 hours to create a large wax pool, extinguish, cool, relight. As a general rule, soy candles burn about 6 - 8 hours per ounce of wax, compared to 4 - 5 hours of burn time per ounce of paraffin wax. All burn times are approximate and they are affected by several factors, including drafts improper wick height, etc. Paraffin wax burns hotter than soy wax, therefore the burn time is substantially shorter for paraffin wax candles.

Another wonderful difference is that the fragrance in a soy candle will last throughout the whole candle vs. paraffin wax which burns hotter, as mentioned above, and tends to burn the scent out of the candle before the candle is gone.

We have increased our oil content to the maximum that the wax will allow for soot free burning. Please avoid drafts, as this will cause some smoke. A low temperature flame is not able to completely combust the wax fuel, it is important that the wick remain still, centered, and draft free.

One Girl & Some Soy dedicates every effort to creating superior candles. Our demanding purity, cleanliness and burn standards have kept us searching for new and innovative wax products. This all natural wax out performs petroleum-based paraffin in every way! We believe American Soybean Wax is of exceptional quality and we know you will see the difference in our products!
