virgin coconut soy candle wax

Our virgin coconut soy wax is a luxurious and creamy wax blend made from natural soy and coconut oils. It's our #1 selling wax blend!

Made from hydrogenated soybean oil, soy wax is a popular choice for environmentally conscious candle makers. It's a renewable, biodegradable resource that produces less soot and has a longer burn time than paraffin wax.

Soy wax is ideal for container candles, but its lower melting point may not be suitable for pillar candles. Additionally, soy wax candles have a softer scent throw compared to paraffin candles.
