I just love mixing horse feed, there is something very therapeutic about the grains, sweet beet pulp and molasses, shouting at the guys that I'm nearly ready while they wait impatiently... Maybe it's because I've been doing it as long as I can remember.. Feed time really is a special time...
Why is Soy wax candles better?
Soy candles are natural since they’re made from vegetable oil (soybeans). On the other hand,paraffin candles are made from petroleum oil. As a result, soy wax candles do not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere like paraffin candles do. Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax is naturally biodegradable.
Soy candles also burn 50% longer than regular candles. Therefore, even though soy wax candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin wax candles to buy, they are still more cost-effective in the long run, because you get twice the candle!
Finally, soy candles are non-toxic since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. Paraffin candles release a petro-carbon soot that stains your walls, furniture and is circulated through your air ducts. This soot, according to the American Lung Association, contains 11 documented toxins, 2 of which are known carcinogens — toluene and benzene, not something we want to sell you.
Of course when you are finished with the candle, you can clean out the jar and re use it!
