Why Soy Based Candles?

Chic Mother and Baby Soy Candles Pick
There is nothing like a nice cup of tea,  a romantic comedy DVD or a good magazine and definitely candles as the finishing touch in the winter. I love candles and I used to splurge on candles from well know brands like Crabtree and Everylen, L'occitane, Thannh, and Dusk but now I have converted to soy based candles.

Soybean wax is a new, environmentally preferred alternative to paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is leftover residue from kerosene whereas soybean wax is biodegradable, non-toxic, and does not leave any black residue or soot (paint will last longer :) All natural soy wax candles are great for dispersing diaper smells.

These are some great gift ideas! If you know of any other great soy-based candles, leave a comment :)

So indulge in these Australian based soy-based candles we found:
1.  Mind to Body Melon and Fig by Mum to Be –  have a gorgeous luxury range of candles and other beauty goodies for mums to be.
3.  Pink Lychee Blossom Soy Barrel Candle by Dusk (35 hours burn time).
2.  Whiteport Soy Candles – Green Tea & Jasmine or Fresh Cotton scents.
4.  We highly recommend the Mango and Papaya by Illuminate candles (50 hours burn time).

  2. I have just discovered Soy Candles too! I didn't know that they don't leave any soot, now I love them even more!
