What’s the big deal with soy wax I hear you ask? Well, until I became interested in the manufacturing of candles, I probably would have asked the same question. In fact, my question would probably have been “what is soy wax”?
My love affair with candles has been many years in the making. I remember my first home shopping trip to Ikea fondly. “ooh, I must buy some candles because I’m a grown up now”. It wasn’t long before my slight OCD meant this type of candle wasn’t going to work out for me. Why wouldn’t these flippin candles burn all the way to the edge?!
