Handmade and plant-based candles made from GMO-free wax.
Soy candles saves you from harmful particles in the air
There are many benefits to using soy candles over regular candles. They emit 80-90% fewer pollutant particles than ordinary candles, and no harmful substances are emitted during burning. In addition, they are environmentally friendly and biodegradable. The benefits are many and you can learn more about them on this page. RAW ROOTs' soy candles are handmade from 100% natural, organic, and GMO-free soy. It is a far better alternative to ordinary, organic candles since soy candles do not contain petrochemicals, phthalates, or other harmful substances. Most people with asthma and allergies can also tolerate soy candles. Like soy candles, RAW ROOTs' skincare products, and haircare products are also free of harmful substances.
RAW ROOTs' soy candles have a burning time of about 80 hours. In the bigger versions, the wick is made of maple wood, which gives a cozy, pulsating sound, and a wonderful scent that brings the mind to campfires.
Our candles are vegan and cruelty free.
The one candle, Grounding, has an immersive and earthy scent of nag champa - a mix of sandalwood, temple flower, and organic patchouli. The other candle, Relaxing, has a mild and pleasant scent of lavender, geranium, and lime.
With soy light, you can get rid of harmful substances
Soy candles is a very environmentally friendly product because you can produce soy in large quantities without harming the environment - it is actually one of the least environmentally harmful candles on the market. RAW ROOTs' handmade soy candles are made from 100% natural, organic, and GMO-free soy. It does not contain benzene, petrochemicals, phthalates, or other harmful chemical substances. This means that it emits 80-90% fewer pollutants during burning than ordinary candles do - and they emit no toxic fumes.

The candles are available in two different sizes. In the large candles of 160 ml, the wick is made of maple wood. The advantage of this is that it gives a cozy and crackling sound, so you almost get a campfire atmosphere in the living room when you ignite the candle. You get a faint scent of burning wood that mixes well with the scent that the soy candle already has.
Soy is far easier to clean than stearin
Most people know that stearin can be terribly difficult to clean up. It is hard to clean drips of a tablecloth or if it hits a window when you blow it out. Soy candles, on the other hand, is extremely easy to clean on all surfaces, this also includes if you get anything on your clothes - all you need is a cloth with warm water. In addition, soy has a lower melting point than stearin. This means that the melted soy is not nearly as hot as dripping wax, and you will not burn yourself if you get it on the skin. For that same reason, RAW ROOTs only make soy candles in containers and not as candlesticks, as it becomes liquid much faster than stearin when burned and can quickly end up in unfortunate places.
Biodegradable material and recyclable glass container
Another great advantage of soy candles is that they are made of biodegradable materials so that it does not harm the environment. The same reason why RAW ROOTs' soy candles are stored in a recyclable glass container.
RAW ROOTs also has a selection of recyclable accessories for you and your home that you can see here.
Once the candle is burned down, you can easily clean it. Either you can give it a go in the dishwasher, or you can cool it down and scrape the rest of the soy candle out. Then you can either throw it out or use it for small storage of jewelry or whatever else that fits.
