If you’re a candle lover then you know finding candles that are of the best quality can be tough. Until I found WoodWick Green candles, I was feeling as though there was no way I’d find the perfect candle!

People enjoy candles for many reasons. Décor and ambiance are at the top of the list but coming in a close second is scent and clean burning. If you love scented candles,Guest Posting you want to actually smell the scent of the candle and not the ingredients the candle is made from. Then, the idea of a candle burning ‘clean’ – which basically means that there is no smoke and residual toxins floating abut in the air.

Candles made from veggie wax are the best kind of scented candles you can get. Let’s take a look at the different types of candle wax to compare to veggie wax:

Paraffin Wax -

* Wax derived from processing Petroleum Oil * It is not a renewable resource * Non-food grade paraffin wax can contain oils and other impurities, which may be toxic or harmful * Has a melting point of 126–135° F * Does not clean up easily with soap and water

Beeswax -

* Wax derived from a beehive used to make fine candles * It is a renewable resource * Has a high melting point of 144 to 147 °F

Soy Wax -

* Wax derived from soybeans used for high-end candle making * It is a renewable resource * Has a lower melting point than paraffin * Cleans up easily with soap and water

Vegetable Wax -

* Wax derived from the leaves of plants * It is a renewable resource * Has a lower melting point than paraffin * Cleans easily with soap and water * Produces virtually no soot * Veggie blend candles are a cleaner burning alternative to most other candles. *They produce no harmful carcinogens. *Veggie wax candles burn up to 50% longer than most other candles. * Burn evenly from top to bottom so there is no wasted wax! * An incredibly realistic scent; an apple smells like an apple.

As you can see, veggie wax is absolutely the best compared to other types of candle wax. WoodWick Green candles are a smart buy because they are made from 100% veggie wax. There’s nothing better than burning a scented candle that not only burns clean and fresh but actually smells as the scent it is made to!
