About The Wax I Use

 

So on the market you can buy a variety of wax products made with different waxes. Here’s an inside to why all my wax products are made using soy wax.

Paraffin wax was first produced commercially in 1867, less than 10 years after the first petroleum well was drilled.   In 1991 Michael Richards discovered soy wax, he was looking for an inexpensive alternative to bees wax. Soy’s greatest advantage is that it is completely renewable. While the global reserves of oil shrink and paraffin prices increase, the only limit to the soy supply is how much we choose to grow.

Since soy wax is made from soybeans, it is friendly to the environment because soybeans are a renewable resource. Paraffin wax comes from petroleum, which is not a renewable resource. Because soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax, the scent from its oils is more pleasant and stronger-smelling than the chemical scents added to paraffin. It’s common to hear people complain of headaches when paraffin candles burn, but in general, this isn’t due to the scent of the wax but rather the toxins it releases into the air. Soy wax offers many benefits over paraffin wax—some of which most people don’t even realise.

Soy wax candles generally burn longer than paraffin candles. Soy wax is derived from natural vegetables while paraffin is a refined gasoline by-product. Soy wax is 100% biodegradable while paraffin was is not. … Soy wax releases fragrance easier than paraffin candles. This is also the same for wax melts/tarts/pods/brittles etc.

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.

Soy wax is biodegradable and cleans up with plain old soap and water. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax and because of this, soy candles will burn slower or longer than paraffin candles.

Now if you’re like me you’ll want to make sure you’re melting something that’s more kinder to the environment as well as kinder to you and your family. Soy wax is vegan friendly too and isn’t tested on animals. The scents I add to my wax along with colours are also vegan friendly and cruelty free. I bring to you not only wax products that are safe, but also kind to everyone. Even my packaging is either compostable or recyclable along with my biodegradable glitters, I’m certainly making a huge help to be kinder to our environment.

Always ask questions whoever you buy from if there’s things you wish to know as it’s important that you as the customer fully understands everything you can about what you’re melting in your wax warmers. It’ll also help you keep safe knowing what type of products you’re melting and how each one can be so different.

Be sure to keep watch for my next blog, I’ll be posting one each week on a Monday! ❤️

Car Sprays Fragranced

Car Sprays Fragranced

 Since launching my car sprays last month they’ve been a huge hit! These work really well on fabric upholstery, we do not recommend that our car sprays are sprayed on leather interior due to them being only for upholstered fabric seats and these even work well on carpets, curtains and sofas if using in the house.

All you need to do it a couple of sprays onto your car seat (fabric only) and then the magic will happen. The feedback we’ve had on these has been amazing and we find that our new product is one of the best out there. We use coloured bottles to protect the contents and we highly recommend for each use you shake the bottle before you spray. Each bottle comes in a compostable clear bag, these then can be put on the compost pile or recycle bin, we do recommend you keep your spray in the bag until your bottle is empty. All our bottles can be placed in the recycle bin along with the spray part too. Our products are not tested on any animals and we use products that are also kind to the environment.

We are about to launch 2 new car spray fragrances, can you guess maybe which 2 fragrances these are? https://www.littleideaswithlove.co.uk/product/liwl-fragranced-car-spray/

Maybe comment below and have a guess and lets see who gets it right!

 

I cant wait to see how many do get it right. All will be revealed this weekend………have a very sparkly day!

LIWL Sleepeeze Pillow Mist Spray

New to LIWL fragranced sleepeeze sprays!

My sleepeeze  sprays are pretty new to my website, each one is made as your order comes in. I’ve made them up using my sleepeeze fragrances so that these can be sprayed on your pillow at night time before you go to sleep. The contents is a milky liquid,  every bottle comes with a tamper proof seal, please do not open this and break the seal as it’s protecting the contents. Please keep away from children and pets and store out of children’s way. All liquids can be dangerous if given to children and we can’t stress enough how important it is to not let your children use the sprays. Once the spray is empty you can place the bottle in your recycle bin. We can’t refill bottles sorry.
Make sure before use you always shake the bottle so that the base and fragrance mix together giving you the best from our pillow sprays. Please do not spray on your skin! If spray goes in your eyes rinse with cold water and seek medical help.

DO NOT STORE YOUR BOTTLE ON POLISHED SURFACES, BOTTLES MUST BE PLACED ON A MAT OR IN A CUPBOARD. PLEASE ALWAYS WIPE YOUR BOTTLE AFTER EACH USE.

 

Please note this photo is for illustration purposes only, this listing is for one spray only, to receive multiple sprays please select your quantity. This isn’t suitable for use on children’s pillows under the age of 5. Please note it’s not a product to make you sleep it’s a product to help you relax on a night time before bed.

  • please do a test patch first before using fully on your upholstery, do not use on leather
  • can be used in your home on your curtains and sofa, but please do a test patch first.
  • perfect for spraying onto your pillow on an evening before you go to bed. I would recommend once you’ve sprayed one or two squirts you leave it to dry before going to bed, so spray your pillow 30 mins before you get into bed.

we’ve many other products to fragrance your room from wax pods to reed diffusers there’s something for every home.

The bottles are 50ml and brown in colour, this is to keep the contents from being seen as the mixture when its been shaken is milky in colour and the bottle also protects the contents to. Bottles come with a tamper proof seal and we advise that you don’t try and unscrew this as the seal needs to be kept sealed and also kept out of reach of children. Please do not let your children use this product, its safe to use on their pillows, but an adult must spray this and i would suggest just one spray on your child’s pillow and i wouldn’t advise using this on children’s pillow under the age of 5. If using on a child’s pillow please just do a tiny test for the first night, id spray a tiny amount on their bed sheet first.
