Japanese Candle Making


PingMag has a great article on the art and history of Japanese candle making. From the site, “Since Japanese candles are rather traditional, they stuck to their original, natural ingredients and techniques from ancient times: only the purest Sumac wax is used (to assure a high quality candle), special attention goes to producing a perfect wick (which is most essential to create a safe candle to keep your house from burning) and only certain colors are allowed.Link.

    Fortunately, soy-based scented candles can help with virtually soot-free burning with the additional benefit of cool burning and hence better fragrance release.
    Paraffin wax is a derivative of kerosene so it is not surprising then that paraffin wax candles release soot into the air when burned and this soot can settle on your walls and surfaces and even be breathed in by you and everyone around you.
    In contrast, soy-based wax candles are derived from all-natural soya beans that are grown all around the world.
    Soy is made by hydrogenating the oil of soya beans, which are a renewable resource limited only to how many soya beans are grown.
    So there you go “Soy candles are the very best”, great content and most followed blog.. keep up the good work! Well done, Lucas.
