If you want to start living green at home, burning soy candles, instead of paraffin, is an easy way to start.

Why Soy?

  • Soy wax is derived from America- grown soybeans, a sustainable and domestic resource. Traditional candles are based on paraffin, a petroleum-based product.
  • Soy Candles burn slower and cooler (helping to better distribute fragrance) than paraffin candles.
  • Soy candles are non-toxic and less likely to trigger allergies.
  • Environmentally friendly and biodegradable, soy wax also clean up easily with soap and water.
  • Paraffin wax is a heavy hydrocarbon that comes from crude oil that is principally available from foreign sources.

Why Essential Oils?

  • Bright Sun Candles are made with essential oils, the pure "essence" of a plant. Essential oils have been found to provide both psychological and physical benefits. An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant.
  • Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils. Where essential oils are derived from the true plants, perfume oils are artificially created fragrances or contain artificial substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer. See this article, What are Fragrance Oils, for more information on fragrance oils and why they are not used in aromatherapy.
Why No Color?
  • Bright Sun Candles are made without adding dye for color. Why? Simply because color additives are made from petroleum-based products or other artificial sources. We strive to make the most environmentally-friendly candles.
