TJ Soy Candles provides you with 100% highly scented soy candles while you are able to choose from a variety of sizes and fragrances. They will last you 50% longer than traditional candles. You'll enjoy the soft flickering light surrounding you while they release fragrances naturally. Your natural soy wax candles will burn clean and melt at a lower temperature, burn slower and cooler (helping to better distribute fragrance), are non-toxic, less likely to trigger allergies and they do not release toxins, unlike a paraffin wax. Soy candles help the environment. They are a renewable, biodegradable, and water-soluble resource. Soy candles do not release the toxins that paraffin candles emit therefore soy candles will not put you or your family's health at risk. According to the state of California's Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Ace of 1986), there are at least seven toxins in paraffin candle wax, including benzene, a carcinogen. Testing and air chamber analysis by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found the following compounds, in significant quantity, in a random group of over 30 candles tested: acetone, benzene, trichloroflouromethane, carbon disulfide, butanone, trichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride butanone, trichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride, carbon black (soot) particulate matter, trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene, tolulene, chlorobenzene, ethyl benzene, styrene, xylene, phenol, cresol, cyclopentene, and lead. Obviously, you would have to be a chemist to truly know what most of these chemicals are, but according to the EPA, they pose a health hazard with continued exposure over time. Just within minutes of the first time you light a paraffin candle you can see the black residue rising from the lit wick, staining the container from which these candles burn. Continued use of these paraffin candles will not only further blacken the container it sits in, it can blacken your walls, ceilings, vents, AC units, heaters, curtains or blinds, and even carpets. Now, imagine that same soot being inhaled into your lungs. When you place an order with TJ Soy Candles you will receive the highest quality products and customer service.
