Soy candles are much cleaner than paraffin candles that contain petroleum and other additives. 

Since soy burns at lower temperatures your candle will last longer than other candles of the same volume. As a general rule soy candles burn about 8 hours per oz. of wax. Burn times are approximate, as they are affected by several factors, including keeping the wick trimmed at the proper height, the amount of draft it is exposed to, and if they are allowed to burn long enough to allow a complete pool of wax across the entire top of candle. Another benefit to the slow burn is that the scent is gradually released creating a nice, enjoyable aroma.

Soy wax is biodegradable and non-toxic. You can feel good about purchasing these candles made from soy- a natural renewable resource.

I hope you enjoy your handmade products as much as I love making them!

  • Better Burning

    • Soy candles burn more cleanly than paraffin candles. They produce no soot and the amount of smoke created is also minimal, meaning that shelves and walls where candle are burned don't become contaminated with unsightly marks or blemishes.

    Scents

    • Because soy produces a cleaner burn, any scents added to an individual carriage has a tendency to "throw" much better. Dispersion is also helped by the low melting points associated with soy.

    Sustainability

    • Soy has numerous environmental advantages. It is derived from a renewable source and helps to promote farming and processing throughout the United States. There is no petroleum content in soy and candles do not destabilise carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
