If you haven’t tried burning soy wax instead of traditional paraffin, you are missing out on a host of benefits. Soy wax candles are popular for many good reasons.
Made from soybeans, soy wax candles use hydrogenated vegetable oils that turn solid at room temperature. As a natural wax, soy candles do not produce black soot that can stain the inside of your home. Because candles with soy wax burn cleaner, the scents from their essential oils are more pleasant than the chemical scents used in more common candles. They have nothing artificial, unlike the old-fashioned paraffin waxes, which are made from petroleum oil and produce harmful byproducts like carcinogens when melted and burned. Soy wax candles are non-toxic, thus healthier and environmentally friendly!
Candles are known for their soothing effects and healing properties. You therefore often see them put to use by massage therapists. They can help you feel calm and energized, which helps reduce anxiety and depression. Apart from their health benefits, candles can be used as home decor too! With their colors and scents, they can add that finishing touch to any room in your home!
At Haven House, you can reap all of these benefits, as we offer a wide variety of soy wax candles, handmade by our men in recovery. We do candle making and other activities to help keep our residents productive and occupied. Combining art with group therapy helps them relax, improve their moods, and stay focused.
We prepare our packaging and organize our production process together. All of these are intentional to provide a sense of belonging and to teach them life and job skills, which are important post-recovery.
Our products may not be as fancy as other brands, but they are well-made with purpose and good intentions. They are scented with pure essential oils and fragrances. Every week, we have a unique recipe designed by our residents.
