Soy wax is made from soybeans, while paraffin wax is made from petroleum (yes, the same petroleum used to make oil and gas). Discovered in 1850, paraffin wax is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil. Soy wax was discovered in 1991 as an alternative to paraffin wax and is a hydrogenated form of soybean oil. Not only is soy wax all natural, it’s also sustainable since we can grow more soybeans. Paraffin wax is not sustainable because fossil fuels cannot be renewed.
Wood wicks can be a tad trickier to get going (think wood burning fire here, you may need to ignite the wick a few times before the flame catches) but the overall affect yields a much softer and slower burn, yielding a much longer candle life
