1.) What is Soy Wax?
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.
The U.S. grows the vast majority of the world's soy beans, primarily in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana.
2.) What's in the fragrance oil?
The fragrance oils used in Mulberry Farm candles are a combination of natural essential oils and synthetic aroma blends. All fragrance oils are 100% phthalate-free.
3.) How long will it take to get a candle?
Because we are a small operation and hand-pour all our candles, please allow 4-6 days for processing orders before shipment.
