Soy Candles by Urban Wix (Made locally in the Yarra Ranges)
Not only are soy wax candles a natural and renewable product, they emit far less soot than regular paraffin candles and release no toxins into the air. This soot is mostly noticeable in jar candles, but is known to stain furniture and walls in cases where candles are regularly burnt in the same area over time. Soy wax candles are a more environmentally-friendly choice that is healthier for people, and our pets at home!
While soy candles are generally more expensive, soy candles burn slower and up to 50% longer than regular candles, making them the more cost-effective option in the long-term. Soy candles are known for burning more evenly than regular candles also (when the wick is kept trimmed to a quarter of an inch) leaving little to no excess wax on the sides of the jar.
Urban Wix are hand-poured candles using premium quality soy, with essential oils, inspired nature - using only cotton, beeswax & wood wicks, made locally - making this product a great quality & a long burning sustainable candle.
