7 Benefits of Coconut Wax in Candles

7 Benefits of Coconut Wax in Candles

In our homes, candles serve as more than mere sources of light. They're vessels of ambiance, fragrance, and relaxation - a subtle invitation to unwind and indulge in moments of tranquility. While paraffin wax has long dominated the candle making industry, a new contender has emerged, promising not just illumination, but a plethora of benefits for both you and the environment: coconut wax.

Paraffin wax, derived from crude oil, may offer a cheap solution for candle makers, but its origins raise concerns about sustainability and toxicity. At Lukata Candles, however, we prioritize quality and health, which is why we've chosen coconut wax as the star ingredient in our handcrafted creations. Let's explore why coconut wax is the superior choice for your candles:

  1. Sustainable and Natural: Coconut wax is obtained through a natural process of pressing oil from coconut meat, followed by hydrogenation. It's fully biodegradable and renewable, making it one of the most eco-friendly waxes available. With high crop yields and minimal environmental impact, coconut wax aligns perfectly with our commitment to sustainability.

  2. Slow, Even Burn: Experience extended candle-burning bliss with coconut wax, which burns slower than other waxes on the market. Say goodbye to uneven burns and wasted wax stuck to the sides—our candles provide a consistent and long-lasting glow.

  3. Exquisite Scent Throw: Fragrance oils blend seamlessly with coconut wax, resulting in a delightful scent throw that fills your space with aroma. Whether you prefer floral, citrus, or woody notes, our candles promise to envelop your senses in a symphony of fragrance.

  4. Ethical Farming Practices: Unlike the palm oil industry, coconut farming embraces ethical practices that prioritize local livelihoods and environmental conservation. Hand-harvested by local farmers without the use of pesticides or herbicides, coconut wax production fosters sustainable agriculture and supports communities.

  5. Clean, Smokeless Burn: Bid farewell to unsightly soot marks and airborne toxins with coconut wax candles. Our non-toxic candles burn cleanly, emitting zero soot particles and minimizing the risk of harmful carcinogens in your home.

  6. Non-GMO and Chemical-Free: Rest assured knowing that our coconut wax candles are free from genetically modified organisms and harmful chemicals. With coconuts remaining untouched by genetic modification and pesticide-free farming practices, our candles embody purity and natural goodness.

  7. A Beacon of Innovation: As pioneers in the realm of coconut wax candles, we're thrilled to introduce you to the many wonders of this versatile wax. Join us in embracing the future of candle-making—a future that's sustainable, luxurious, and undeniably enchanting.

Fun fact – A life span of coconut tree is 60 – 80 years! It is known as the ‘Three generation tree’ because it can provide and support a farmer, his children and his grandchildren. How amazing it that?
