The Soothing Truth: Why Soy Candles are a Healthier Glow for Your Home

Introduction: Nestled in the heart of Galloway, New Jersey, a small shop called Finley Candles is illuminating the truth about a cleaner, greener way to enjoy the cozy warmth of a flickering flame. This isn’t about just any candles; this is about soy candles, a beacon of health and harmony in the world of home fragrance. Let's light the way to understanding why soy candles are the choice for a healthier home.

The Problem with Paraffin: For decades, paraffin wax candles have been the standard. However, studies have shown that these candles, derived from petroleum byproducts, release a cocktail of chemicals into the air, including known carcinogens like benzene and toluene. Burning paraffin candles in the close quarters of your Galloway home isn't just throwing light on your walls—it's potentially casting a shadow on your health.

Enter the Hero: Soy Wax: Soy wax is made from soybean oil, which is hydrogenated and transformed into a solid state at room temperature. Unlike paraffin, soy is renewable, biodegradable, and, most importantly, burns cleanly. When you choose a soy candle from Finley Candles, you're not just getting a candle—you're getting a promise of purity.

Why Soy Candles Rise Above:

  1. Cleaner Air Inside Your Home: Soy candles burn cleaner with little to no soot, leaving your Galloway home's air fresher and your walls cleaner. This means you can say goodbye to those blackened edges around your candle jars and the invisible toxins that might be lurking in your air.

  2. Longer Lasting Fragrance: The slow-burning nature of soy wax means that you'll enjoy your favorite scents for longer. Finley Candles prides itself on creating candles that not only last but do so without overwhelming your senses or triggering allergies, a common complaint among paraffin candle users.

  3. Supporting Local Farmers: Each soy candle from Finley Candles is a high-five to American agriculture. The soybeans used in our candles come directly from the fertile fields of local farms, ensuring that every purchase supports the Galloway community and its surroundings.
