choosing a home fragrance

Which Type of Home Fragrance Is Best for You

With so many choices on the market, it can be hard to decide which type of fragrance is right for you. Do you want soy wax candles or beeswax candles? Do you want to use a diffuser or burn your candles? Do you want a bright, cheerful scent or a deep, relaxing one? Let’s explore the pros and cons of each option so that you can make an informed decision about what’s best for you.

Soy Wax Candles vs. Beeswax Candles

There are two main types of wax used in candles: soy wax and beeswax. Each type has its own unique set of benefits and drawbacks.

Soy wax candles are made from, you guessed it, soybeans! Soybeans are a renewable resource, which means that soy wax candles are a more environmentally-friendly choice than beeswax candles. Soy wax candles also tend to be cheaper than beeswax candles. On the downside, soy wax candles don’t last as long as beeswax candles. They also don’t produce as much fragrance as beeswax candles.

Beeswax candles are made from - you guessed it again - beeswax! Beeswax is not a renewable resource, so beeswax candles are not a renewable resource, so beeswax candles are not as environmentally friendly as soy wax candles. However, beeswax candles do last longer than soy wax candles,, and they produce more fragrance. Beeswax candles can also be a bit more expensive than soy wax candles.

Diffuser vs. Candles

Another choice you have to make when choosing a candle is whether you want to use a diffuser or burn your candle. Both options have their own set of benefits and drawbacks.

Diffusers last longer than burned candles because they don’t rely on heat to release fragrance. This means that they can be placed in areas with drafts without fear of the fragrance being blown away. Diffusers also don’t require any supervision - you can just set them and forget them! However, diffusers can be more expensive than burned candles, and they might not release as much fragrance as burned candles.

Burned candles provide a more traditional look and feel to your home decor. They also tend to release more fragrance than diffusers because they use heat to release the fragrance oils into the air. However, burned candles require supervision - you need to make sure that they are extinguished properly when you leave the room. Burned candles can also be more expensive than diffusers if you buy them from a high-end retailer. 

There are many factors to consider when choosing between different types of candle products. Do you want soy wax or beeswax? Do you want to use a diffuser or burn your candle? What kind of fragrance do you want? Consider all of these factors before making your purchase so that you can choose the product that’s right for you.
