Soy candles are an eco-friendly alternative to burning the traditional paraffin candles which can give off noxious gases. The upside to burning soy candles rather than paraffin candles is that you can make them yourself easily in your own home. The supplies you need can be found at craft and hobby stores, or online. The better product you use, the higher quality your homemade creation will be. It will burn longer and give off a better scent.
