At Life Before Plastic, we stock a range of natural soy wax candles and natural reed diffusers made using sustainable sourced soy wax. These eco-friendly candles are hand-poured by UK artisan candle makers made with the environment in mind. Choose from a variety of different scents for every season from fruity, summery scents, to winter warmer candles.

 

What is a natural candle?

Natural candles are candles made from a natural wax like soy wax or coconut wax. Natural candles are made without paraffin wax which is both polluting for the environment as it comes from oil and can be bad to breathe in.

How are natural soy wax candles made?

Soy wax candles are made from a plant based wax made from soybeans. The soy beans are harvested, cleaning, popped, de-hulled and made into a type of flake. The soy oil is extracted from these soybean flakes and hydrogenated. The fatty acid from the oil becomes saturated and turns solid at room temperature. Any leftovers are used as animal feed so natural soy wax candles are a perfect waste free alternative to paraffin wax candles. 

Which candles are eco-friendly?

The most eco-friendly candles are candles made from a plant-based wax like soy wax candles from small artisan candles makers. Some of our favourite brands include Otter Candle Co and Subluceo Candles. 

Does soy wax burn more slowly?

Soy wax candles are not only better than paraffin as they are much cleaner, but they also burn at a slower rate, so a natural soy wax candle will last longer than a paraffin candle.

 

These natural candles and natural reed diffusers will freshen up every home. Natural reed diffusers are a wonderful edition to a bathroom or bedroom for a constant fresh scent all year round. Opt for a natural candle for those cosy winter nights or for a lovely gift for any occasion. Our eco-friendly candles really will brighten up anyone's mood. Choose your favourite natural candle today.
