We get asked all the time.. Why Blaze It?
Our candles are hand poured in small batches with 100% soy wax. Why does that matter? Soy Wax is non-toxic and cleaner-burning being made with no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants which means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies. As a vegetable-based wax, it does not give off any harmful byproducts or produce black soot that can stain walls and curtains like the other leading waxes.
Why not stick with the candles I know? What's so wrong with that?
Paraffin wax - the most commonly used candle wax - is made in a contrasting way and because of this, the cost is much cheaper. Paraffin wax is the product of the oil purification process from petroleum, coal, or oil shale. When you remove the waxy substance from crude oil, you’re left with paraffin wax.
Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax and because of this, soy candles will burn slower and longer than paraffin candles. That's why you get double the burn out of our candles! Oils evaporate better from a larger surface area and with the lower heat and larger melt pool soy wax creates a scent that will be that much stronger and more pleasant.
