A Guide to Buying Candles in India

In recent times there is a huge awakening in the minds of Indians to buy only “Made in India” products, this is mainly because buying locally directly  benefits the people of India, and in these days of economic hardship there is more reason to buy locally, as it helps boost our economy and in a small way buying Soya candles that are made in India can in some way help  our own struggling economy.

Soi candles are made purely from the Soybean Plant, which is grown in India, the soya bean once harvested is passed through a partial hydrogenation process which beautifully transforms the soy oil into soft wax. It could be estimated that India producers around 5 million pounds of soybeans a year. 

Primary benefit of using Soya wax is that because of its soft nature it works very well with containers. It fits beautifully in mason jars and other types of candle jars. While buying a scented candle it is really important that we focus on Soy based candles because of its non toxic nature, which are perfect for humans and Soy candles have the added benefit of burning clean and it produces 95% less soot than traditional paraffin wax candles. Soy wax candles produce minimal soot that is mostly in white colour and may not even be noticeable to the naked eye, it also works really well with essential oils to produce a completely clean, green, yet effective candle.

Scented candles made from Soy also have the benefit of holding a large amount of essential oil when compared to paraffin wax candles, sometimes Soy candle that is centred fill the entire room with fragrance even if it is not lit, and when lit the scent is transported beautifully across any medium sized room and burns clean from the beginning to the end. 

Soy Candles are not merely a healthy option when compared to paraffin wax candles but they are also a natural alternative to them. Buying candles made in India really helps boost our local economy ensuring that profits stay in India, thereby helping the Indian farmer.  In conclusion it is always a good choice to buy Soy based candles when compared to paraffin, only because of the natural nature of Soybean, far supersedes the petroleum elements in paraffin.
