Have you ever wondered what soy wax is when you're shopping for your favorite jewelry candle? What's the big deal? All of Jackpot's candle, tart, and travel tin products with a jewelry surprise inside are made from 100% soy wax and all-natural essential oils because they have a ton of benefits for the environment and for you! Let me tell you about a few.
The whole thing starts with beautiful, all-natural dry soybeans. Soy wax is a vegetable-based wax made from soybean oil when soybeans are harvested, cleaned, dehulled, split, and rolled into little soybean flecks. Oil is rendered from this and "hydrogenated," which means that unsaturated fatty acids present in the oil are saturated, changing the oil's melting point. The wax is poured and set at room temperature to form the decorative soy candle, tart, or travel tin that will make it's way home to you!
- Unlike Paraffin wax, which is still used by many major candle manufacturers today, the soy wax used by Jackpot Candles is never manufactured with harmful chemicals that are released into the air while burning.
- Jackpot's soy wax products, like the Lavender Jewelry Candle, produce less soot so there is less chance of residue being left behind in your home as long as you are burning safely.
- Soybeans are biodegradable and renewable. Other resources are used in the production of soybeans but when farmed responsibly soy is alright!
- Soy wax cleans easily from surfaces so you can wash your empty jar or tin with soapy, warm water when your Sweet Pea Jewelry Candle Travel Tin and other candle products are spent and reuse them around the house!
- Soy wax candles like Jackpot's Mixed Berry Jewelry Candle burn longer and more slowly than paraffin candles and release their scent for longer so you get more bang for your buck. Who doesn't like that?
