How To Make Soy Candles

There is nothing like the ambiance of burning candles in your home. The warm scents that spread throughout the room make for comfortable and even romantic moments. But the harsh reality is that a lot of candles are made with harsh chemicals and animal by-products making them unhealthy for you and an absolute no no for the vegan lifestyle.

When candle shopping always opt for soy based candles as they do not come with any of the health related problems spread by cheap chemical based candles.

If you are looking for a fun weekend project for you and the family why not make your own soy candles. This way you can control the scents and feel a sense of joy after making them.
