In today's world, where sustainability and health consciousness are more important than ever, many of us are turning our attention to the products we bring into our homes. This is especially true for items like candles, which not only add a touch of warmth and coziness to our living spaces, but can also impact indoor air quality. At bluewine studio, crafting aesthetic handmade natural soy candles and curating cozy home decor collection, we understand the importance of creating products that are not only beautiful but also safe and environment friendly.

The conversation about natural waxes versus traditional paraffin wax is not new, but it's becoming increasingly relevant as we seek healthier, more sustainable choices. Paraffin wax, a byproduct of petroleum refining, has long been the industry standard for candle making and many commercially available candles are made from paraffin wax still to this day. However, concerns over its environmental impact and potential health implications when burned have led many to look for alternatives. Enter natural waxes - a cleaner, greener option for candle lovers everywhere. Here are some of the most common types of safe and natural waxes used in candle making:


Soy Wax

At the heart of or candle collection is soy wax, a renewable resource that significantly reduces the amount of soot released into the air compared to paraffin wax. Soy wax has gained significant popularity in recent years for its clean-burning and eco-friendly qualities. Its excellent fragrance throw means our candles deliver a lasting fragrance that gently permeates your space even without burning. Additionally, its lower melting point also ensures a longer burn time, making our candles an essential addition to your home. 



Beeswax is a natural wax produced by honeybees as they construct their honeycombs and is one of the oldest known waxes used in candle making. It's a popular choice for those with allergies or sensitives as it can help purify the air by releasing negative ions when burned. With its natural, subtle honey scent and beautiful golden hue, beeswax candles are known for their excellent natural light and slow, clean burn.


Coconut Wax

Coconut wax is a relatively new addition to the candle making, derived from the meat of coconuts. This vegan-friendly wax has a clean burn and excellent scent throw, making it a popular choice for luxury candles. Coconut wax candles have a smooth and creamy appearance and can hold a high fragrance load, ensuring a long-lasting and aromatic burn.


Palm Wax

Palm wax is derived from the oil of palm trees and is known for its beautiful crystalline structure and excellent scent throw. This natural wax offers a unique aesthetic design, with its ability to create intricate patterns when poured into molds. Additionally, palm wax has a high fragrance retention, allowing candles to release their captivating scents more effectively when burned. While palm wax is considered a natural wax, it's essential to prioritize sustainability in its sourcing. Unsustainable palm oil production has been linked to deforestation, habitat destruction, and threats to wildlife populations. However, by choosing sustainably sourced palm oil, consumers can support responsible palm wax production practices that minimize environmental impact.


When it comes to candles, opting for safe and natural waxes is essential for burning candles that are both environment friendly and healthy. Whether you prefer the creamy texture of soy wax, the natural aroma of beeswax, or the luxurious feel of coconut wax, there are plenty of options to suit your preferences and values. By choosing sustainable and eco-friendly waxes, you can enjoy the beauty and warmth of candles while minimizing you environmental footprint and promoting a healthier home for you and your loved ones. We believe that by choosing natural waxes, we're not only providing a safer, cleaner burning candle but also contributing to a healthier planet and supporting sustainable practices.
