Frequently Asked Questions

Melted Ego prides themselves on making candles and wax melts made from natural Soy Wax. Below are frequently asked questions to help you decide what to purchase.

What are benefits of Soy Wax?

A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Paraffin candles often create a significant amount of black soot that collects on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. The soy candle may accumulate some black soot on the jar, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won’t release toxins into the air as they burn.

Longer Lasting

Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won’t have to buy new candles as often. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.

Better Scent

A soy candle works well for holding onto the scent from fragrance oils, which are often used to scent candles. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released; there won’t be an immediate wave of strong scent. This creates a more pleasant atmosphere for most people. The natural wax also holds onto color well, which makes it look more attractive.

My candle has an air pocket – is this a fault in the candle?

My candles are made with 100% soy wax. This is a natural product, it can shrink and relax dependant on many variables. If the wax shrinks away from the glass, it may appear as an air bubble, this does not effect the performance of the candle at all. To prevent this happening we would need to additives into the candle at all. To prevent this happening, we would need to put additives into the candle to harden the wax, this may cause the candle to tunnel and the scent throw would be effected. I therefore have made the decision to keep all my products as natural as possible.
