Soy wax candles, made by hydrogenating the oil of the soybean vegetable, are the preferred base for high quality candles today although many leading brands still use paraffin wax (it's best to always check). Soy candles burn clean, produce less black soot or smoke and generally burn up to 50% longer than traditional paraffin wax candles. Furthermore, soy wax is biodegradable and cleans up with soap and water. Coupled with premium LeRêve fragrance, LeRêve Fragranced Natural Soy Candles create an idyllic ambience in the home or office.
