Why natural soy wax… why not beeswax?
I am a beekeeper and our bees are in trouble. Taking good wax from healthy beehives is not sustainable. Also, even in organic beehives there are still traces of pesticides. Bees go where they want and sprays are everywhere now. That’s why we choose not to use beeswax at Lemon Canary. If you do buy beeswax ensure you only purchase from a local beekeeper who raise their bees chemical free and without Fipronil or Apithor hive beetle traps which are common place.
The natural soy wax in this candle making kit is 100% plant based, vegan, cosmetic grade, certified kosher and genetically unaltered… there’s no beeswax, petroleum, paraffin, plastics, toxins, pesticides or herbicides… guaranteed. Our waxes come from sustainable and cruelty free farming and they are a renewable resource that can be replaced at the same rate or faster than can be consumed without damaging the ecosystem.
How much essential oil do you use in a candle?
At Lemon Canary, in most cases we add 5%-6% essential oil to our wax. This is an absolute maximum. We try and pack our candles as full as possible with love and value. For a 200g candle we add approximately 10ml-12ml of essential oil. This is an absolute maximum so you could add much less if you like. In fact, we recommend that you should use less than we do when you are learning. Remember when measuring, 20 drops is approximately equal to 1ml. You can add whatever essential oils you like. Use them alone or in combination and get creative.
If you do buy a Lemon Canary candle making kit have fun with it and enjoy your homemade candles.
