We choose Natural Soy Wax over Paraffin Wax - Learn why!

We choose Natural Soy Wax over Paraffin Wax - Learn why!

Hi friends,

Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and visit our website. We love sharing our story and journey. Today, we are sharing some important information about our Brand and Products. 

Before we get into details, let's talk a little bit about Paraffin Wax.

Do you know what is Paraffin Wax? 

par-af-fin - a flammable, whitish, translucent, waxy solid consisting of a mixture of saturated hydrocarbons, obtained by distillation from petroleum or shale and used in candles, cosmetics, polishes, and sealing and waterproofing compounds.

We know the reason why you are reading this is because you love candles (Scented Candles) just like us, so think of the time you purchased that beautiful candle from that famous store at the mall and getting that annoying black residues around the rim of the jar. That is known as Soot

"Paraffin wax was originally called petroleum wax when it was discovered in 1830 as a petroleum by-product created from the sludge waste found at the bottom of the barrel when crude oil is refined into gasoline. Its use was restricted for about two decades after it’s discovery, due to it’s toxic nature when burned.

However, in the 1850s, chemists learned how to efficiently separate the naturally occurring waxy substance from petroleum and “refine it” into what they now called paraffin – at that point declaring it safe to burn and be used as candles"source

Now that you know about Paraffin Wax, let's talk about Soy Wax

What is Soy Wax?

Soy Wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.

The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.

The U.S. grows the vast majority of the world's soybeans, primarily in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana.

 "Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (basically made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax" - source 

Not all Soy Candles are 100% Natural

This is the number one reason why we choose not to add any dye color to our candles. Many candle makers promote their candles as Soy Wax Candles, that not necessary mean their candles are made with 100% Soy Wax. A lot of candle companies today are using a blended of soy wax and paraffin. 

We use a 100% Soy Wax made of U.S. grown soybean. Not a blend. The Soy Wax we use undergoes a purification process to thoroughly remove any pesticides, herbicides or Genetically Modified Materials.

Now that you know the difference between Soy Wax and Paraffin, you should understand why we choose to work with 100% Soy Wax. 

We love our product. Can you tell? 

Thank you for reading. Please feel free to leave comments below and share the love. 

Victor

Introducing - The First Eight Collection

We are pleased to introduce The First Eight collection - Handcrafted Soy Candles

The first eights

Each of these fragrances have their unique meaning, origin and personal touch to help keeping your home smelling delicious. We love them, and we enjoyed every step we took until we reached our desired product. After months of researching, learning the greatness of Aromatherapy and enjoying the art of mixing Fragrances and natural oils, we were able to developed eight magnificent fragrances that represents our love for Earth, mother Nature and a wonderful smelling home. 

The first eight will be our classic collection, and we will keep them available all year around, while seasonal fragrances will be added during the course of the year. 

Fleming's Home is a designer brand of Home Fragrance. We will offer a complete line of products to our customers. Each collection will come in diffusers, lotion, body wash and bar or hand soap. We continue working on the developing of our products line, so expect to hear a lot more from us. 

Our products are designed to enhance the mood of a space we love and not to overpower it. Our fragrances are long lasting and strong but not to become annoying beyond a point. 


No.01 Lavender & Rose

Kick back and relax as this floral scent fills the air with total tranquility and harmony. We've blended lavender and chamomile essential oils to create a fragrance that is soothing, intricate, and strong. This herbal fragrance is a perfect addition to any natural or aromatherapy session.

Fragrance blend: Rose, Violet & Jasmine. 
Essential Oils: Lavender, Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Orange, Sandalwood & Cedar-wood.

No. 02 Amber & Teakwood

The amber & teakwood soy candle is full of happiness and relaxation. This soft scent is perfect for any room and any time of day.  

Fragrance blend: peach, white grapes, leather, musk, teak and tobacco. 
Essential oils: Cedarwood, patchouli, black pepper and pimiento berry.

No.03 Grapefruit & Fig

With the combination of various citrus fruits, this candle will grant everyone in the house with great energy. A true-to-life blend of ripe, tangy grapefruit and Fig tree. It's a little earthy, a little clean, a little sweet - very sophisticated - you need to try it!

Out of the bottle the grapefruit and tangerine dominates with its sharp and punchy citrus notes. Once in wax, the fragrance mellows just a bit, with the warmth of Fig tree coming through. The fragrance reaches balance while burning, when fragrances and essential oils melt into a strong fragrance that has a citrus punch, a hint of Lemon, and a naturally derived sweetness.

Fragrance blend: tangerine, fig tree, lemon and teak 
Essential oils: Grapefruit 

No.04 Fresh Mimosa

A Sunday morning couldn't have smelt more fresh than a glass of a perfect mimosa. One that will make you want to dive in it. The top sparkles with crisp dew fruit, mandarin oranges, tangerines and sweet berries. The heart combines a medley of pineapple, mimosa blossoms, peaches, plums, fruity jasmine and soft lavender. The base is a beautiful lily and vanilla.

Fragrance blend: mandarin oranges, tangerines, sweet berries, mimosa blossoms, pineapple, peaches, plums, lily and vanilla. 
Essential oils: orange, jasmine and lavender. 

No.05 Floral & Woody 

A delightful spring/summer scent filled with energy that brightens up your day. Hydrangea flowers are particularly common to the Azores Islands near Portugal, our fragrance carries a subtle and sweet aroma with a hint of spice that may remind you these island's many hills and valleys.                                                                                                       

A woody, musky heart made from sustainable harvested sandalwood and cedarwood essential oils, softened with subtle notes of violet and jasmine.

Fragrance blend: violet, jasmine, hydrangea and aged teakwood 
Essential oils: sandalwood, cedarwood and patchouli

No.06 Wine & Love

Perfect candle to light up as your day comes to an end, and lights up the mood for a night of true romance. An instant classic - this fragrance is a luscious fusion of citrus, cherry blossom, hydrangea, apple and peach; with a hint of blondewood, mixed with the unmistakable bouquet of a premium white wine. A crisp blend of white grapes, berries and fruit.

Fragrance blend: hydrangea, apple, cherry blossom, peach, blondewood, white grapes and berries. 
Essential oils: orange, grapefruit, bergamont and cedarwood. 

No.07 Sandia Mia

A fruity and earthy scent that will bring an enjoyable sensation to any room in your home. This candle has the traditional watermelon notes, but the sweetness is less pronounced in wax, giving it a pleasing ripeness that smells more authentic. Bright fruity bouquet reminiscent of the scent of fresh cut peaches mixed with base notes of wood. One of our favorites at home.

Fragrance blend: watermelon, tangerine and peach 
Essential oils: sandalwood, patchouli and cedarwood 

No.08 Summer Meadow

A family favorite with its unique combination of garden scents bringing you to a summer-like oasis. Like a peaceful stroll on a sunny day, our Summer Meadow candle captures the essence of summer florals and the fresh aroma of freshly cut grass. And with a hint of orange and sandalwood, it's a natural scent you'll love any time of the year.
