What's the difference between 100% soy wax and soy blend candles? - Ambient Wick™

What's the difference between 100% soy wax and soy blend candles?

There are so many different types of candle wax on the market, but they aren't all created equal. At Ambient Wick™ we offer both 100% natural soy wax and soy blend candles but what exactly does that mean? Keep on reading for all the details in simple terms.

Soy Blend Candles

Soy blend candles are just that, a blend of soy wax and/or other different types of waxes/additives that can help capitalize on the benefits of two waxes or increased fragrance. While we cannot speak for all candles on the market, our soy blend candles are not toxic and produce little to no soot. We source the highest quality soy blend wax that is sourced right here in the United States and offers a gorgeous texture, quality burn and of course, the most opulent fragrance possible. 

100% Soy Candles

100% natural soy wax candles are comprised entirely of soybeans and are viewed as the most environmentally friendly type of candle you can buy and 100% wax also burns the slowest, so you get to enjoy your candle even longer! Our 100% soy wax candles are all natural, with no additives and are true all natural candles and not just marketed that way as some companies on the market tend to do. While 100% soy candles are a GREAT option, they do offer one drawback for those that love a very lush scent. Unfortunately all natural soy wax does not hold as much fragrance as soy blends so therefore you scent will not be as strong as it would be with a soy blend candle. However, soy candles are perfect for those that cannot handle high fragrance or just want something with a scent that is a bit more mellow.

Our candles always come in two options, soy blend and natural soy wax so that your shopping options aren't restricted. Just be sure to make your selection carefully based on your preferences on each product page so that you pick the perfect candle every time!
