This will make you want to hop right on a Christmas Eve sleigh ride! This scent is a festive mix of frankincense, myrrh, patchouli, & warm sandalwood | Why burn soy candles vs. paraffin? Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin, resulting in less soot and carcinogens. Soy candles burn slower and cooler than paraffin wax, creating a longer burning candle. Soybeans are a renewable source, unlike paraffin, which consists of petroleum.
