More than just wick, wax and flame, the SoyLites Candle is a multi-purpose innovation

Enthral your senses with South Africa's Original Soy Candle innovation that is enjoying international praise for its many features. More than just a candle, this pioneering creation will be your best skincare secret, while its all-natural composition and local production mean that it is kind to the earth too. No wonder everyone thinks it is “soy” amazing! We could wax poetic all day about the virtues of these soy candles, but for now, here are their top five ways to benefit from a SoyLites candle :    

1. Aromatherapy

There are a variety of essential oil blends infused into SoyLites candles that will take you on a myriad of pleasant sensory journeys. This not only means you get to enjoy the lovely smells permeating your home as the candle burns, but you also get to fully immerse yourself in the healing benefits of the essential oils – everything from stress reduction to joy and upliftment.

2. Skin benefits

Full of vitamin E and lecithin, the melted oil from the candle can (and should!) be applied to your skin as a rich moisturiser. But don’t worry, the oil won’t burn you because the candles burn at lower temperatures than normal! With no greasy residue, the molten oil will be easily absorbed into your skin leaving your body smelling fresh and your skin feeling nourished. The oil can also be used to treat a variety of skin ailments – with incredible results in aiding the treatment of psoriasis and eczema.

3. Massage

SoyLites’ massage range of candles can be used by massage therapists or at home for a relaxing full-body treatment. With added botanical oils, the massage specific range has a smooth, silky feeling on the skin and will not be immediately absorbed, resulting in an effective massage medium. Simply pour the oil directly onto the skin, and rub-in soothingly to relieve tired and achy muscles. To view the SoyLites massage range, click here.

4. Load-shedding

SoyLites candles last much longer than regular paraffin candles – at least fifty percent longer! This makes them a smart investment for when load-shedding comes around. They also emit virtually no black smoke or toxins while burning, and create a wonderful ambience due an excellent burn quality, which means you can enjoy them for as long as it takes for the electricity to come back on. As the Chinese proverbs goes, "Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness". 

5. Green lifestyle tool

Now more than ever it is vitally important for us all to purchase products that are designed with the environment in mind. When it comes to soy candles, not all candles are created equal. Fortunately, SoyLites candles are kind to nature and made from 100% vegetable and GMO-free soybean oil, with no added synthetic chemicals. These candles burn down completely while leaving no waste and do not disperse pollutants into the air. Additionally, the wax is biodegradable and the packaging is recyclable.
