This Is Why Palm Wax is Used !
I was chatting with a friend the other day who told me she switched over to natural wax candles many years ago simply because she saw a pix of a petroleum refinery and could not imagine burning that "stuff" in her house anymore! This got me to thinking about what Scent-Sations offers vs the petroleum and soy products!!
FACTORY WITH CLOUDS OF SMOKE!
This is where the beginning of a paraffin candle starts.....would you rather have this by product burning in your house or a candle made from palm wax.

Why We do not Use Soy WaxSOY BEAN PLANTS GROWING IN LARGE FIELDS!Cost of Genetically Modified Soy in the US95% of soy in the US is Roundup Ready soy. The US is the leading producer of soy in the world. If you look at the total yield drag from using Roundup Ready soy, the loss is greater than US soy exports to the EU or Mexico (and maybe even to both places combined). The soybean industry is causing more destruction to the environment than probably any other agricultural industry on the planet. New genetically modified soy was specifically developed to withstand toxins so farmers can spray more pesticides on them without diminishing yields. Talk about destroying the environment, the soybean industry has to rank near the top of the offender's list. Palm cultivation is perhaps, the world's most environmentally friendly commercial crop. After oil palms reach maturity. they are commercially productive for at least a quarter of a century. That means that once the trees are planted, the soil remains essentially undisturbed for decades. Unlike soy, were the ground is dug up and re cultivated every year, year after year. The soil in a palm plantation remains essentially undisturbed. Native grasses and scrubs are allowed to repopulate the space between trees. The natural habitat returns, complete with wildlife. An oil palm plantation takes on the appearance of a rain forest, filled with vegetation. Wild boar, monkeys, birds, and other wildlife are allowed to roam in and out of the plantations, just as they do in the wild. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are rarely, if ever, used. Since the ground is continually covered with trees and growth, the soil is not eroded, maintaining the integrity of the environment from the tiniest soil organisms to the largest land animals. So a palm plantation blends into the environment without causing untold disruption. Compare that with a soybean plantation where all trees and other vegetation are killed and removed. Only soybeans are allowed to grow. And what about wildlife? Animals would trample or eat the crops, so they are fenced out, shot, or poisoned. Unlike soy and most other crops that produce once a year, oil palms produce fruit year round, so they are always in season. This allows for a high yield of fruit on comparatively little acreage. For this reason, the oil palm produces more oil per acre than any other vegetable source. For example, in one year on one acre of land a farmer can produce 18 gallons of corn oil, or 35 gallons of cottonseed oil, or 48 gallons of soybean oil. However, on the same amount of land they can produce 635 gallons of palm oil! No, that is not a misprint. You read that correctly, 635 gallons of palm oil compared to just 48 gallons of soybean oil. In terms of land use, you would need to plant 13 acres of soy or 35 acres of corn to produce an equal amount of oil from just one acre of palm. So, soybean cultivation requires 13 times more land to produce the same amount of oil. Therefore the Oil palm is the world's most efficient oil-bearing crop in terms of land utilization, efficiency, and productivity. A single hectare of land produces about 10 times more oil than other oil seeds. Globally Oil palm produces just as much oil as soy, yet utilizes only one-tenth the land area.
