Scented Soy Candles - What's the Hype?
What are they?
Scented soy candles are candles that have been infused with fragrance oils during the manufacturing process. Soy candles are candles made from soy wax, which is a processed form of soybean oil. These candles do not increase carbon dioxide levels in the air, and do not require chemicals to scent them. These fragrances are released by the heat from the flame when the candle is lit. Depending on the materials that the candle is made from, they can give off different intensities of aromas. People typically buy candles as housewarming gifts or for personal use at home. So if you’re ever desperate for housewarming gift ideas or just gift ideas in general, consider scented candles!
What are they for?
Their scent! As Soy Candles burn cool, they give out a good scent throw. Placing candles around your home or office spaces create an ambience of warmth and comfort, and infusing them with scents compliment these environments. Depending on the type of aromas that you prefer, different aromas exude different ambient types. Popular scents that are good for relieving anxiety and stress include jasmine, lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint. Soy candles burn up to 50% longer than regular candles and hence are more cost effective! You will be surprised that Soy Candle burns clean throughout the glass jar except for the last 1cm. Needless to say, they are practically sootless, keeping your walls, ceiling and curtain free from black soot.
How do they compliment different spaces?
Scented soy candles release stronger fragrances than regular scented candles. Citrus scents are good for creating a clean and fresh smelling environment. Think kitchen spaces! Scents made from spices are good for living spaces like your bedroom or study rooms to create a natural, woody and homely vibe. Floral scents are typically used in bathrooms! But ultimately, it’s up to you to decide which scent you prefer and where you’d like to have a scented candle placed. In Singapore especially, typical apartment can be cramped and pressed for space, so a scented candle can definitely brighten up the space while taking up only a small area.
