How We Make Our Candles
Every single one of our candles at Maison Rose are 100% plant-based and hand-poured with only three ingredients used : pure soy wax, a natural cotton wick and a unique blend of essential oils + fragrance oils to create revitalizing, pleasant scents.
When creating candles, our priority is to make sure that they are safe for your home, and pet-friendly. The products are all paraffin-free and contain no animal products whatsoever.
When it comes to the environment and making our contribution to ensure a healthier planet, our soy wax candles are biodegradable and carbon neutral. Alongside this, most of our packaging is eco-friendly too.
As soy wax candles are longer-lasting than regular paraffin wax, you can expect to enjoy them for 50 to 60 hours. Say goodbye to excessive soot or smoke - just be sure to trim the candle wick prior to each use.
Our beautiful candles are made to fill a room with gaeity and warmth. Candles should be pleasurable and beneficial to your wellness which is why we have made sure that our ingredients are all natural. Paraffin wax - a common ingredient that is used in many candles is one that we vow to stay away from. This type of wax is harmful for both people and our planet which is why we opted for soy wax.
Where does soy wax come from? Soybeans. Soy wax is a hydrogenated form of soybean oil. How about paraffin wax? Petroleum - a harmful ingredient also used in making oil and gas. This makes paraffin wax unsustainable because fossil fuels can't be renewed. It was since 1991 when the alternative option of using soy wax had emerged. As we can continue growing more soy beans on our planet, soy wax is considered to be sustainable and is a 100% natural resource.
Soot is inevitable as all candles emit it but did you know that paraffin candles tend to emit way more soot than a soy candle? The downside of soot from paraffin wax candles results in discolouration of your candle jar and potentially having soot get onto surfaces or furniture nearby. When choosing to burn a paraffin candle, carcinogens and mysterious toxins are released into the air around and breathed in. Whereas, when you burn a soy candle and due to soy wax being biodegradable, it will not contain those harmful toxins.
Soybeans are also a very popular staple food in the diets of many...some food for thought! This equates to a happy planet and wellness for you, your family members and your beloved pets.
Depending on the size of your candle and in comparison to paraffin wax candles, soy wax can burn longer - by approximately a minimum of 30 to 50 percent. To prevent the wax of your candle from overheating, it is best advised that you don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours per use.
With the healthier option of using soy wax candles comes the fulfillment of stronger fragrances yet ones that won't be overpowering. Why is that? The heightened fragrance of soy wax over paraffin wax occurs because there is less soot and less toxins released which creates a very natural appeal. When burning a paraffin candle, the interference of chemicals and scents defeats the purpose of use.
To us, an optimal experience means that your candle should have a clean burn all while enjoying an aroma that is both safe and pleasant.
