Product Detail

All Natural - Individually Handmade
Why Natural Soy Wax?
  • Soy Wax is a 100% biodegradable vegetable based by-product, a healthy choice.
  • Soy candles do not release harmful carcinogens.
  • Soy Wax is an American grown product, therefore, helps the United States economy and the American farmer.
  • Soy candles are water soluble for easy cleanup with warm, soapy, water.
  • Soy Wax has excellent scent holding qualities and produces a beautiful scent throw both hot and cold.

Why Essential Oils?
  • Essential Oils are made from raw plant material, consisting of the flowers, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds, or peel. 
  • The oil is extracted by distillation, expression, or solvent extraction. 
  • Pure essential oils have a wide range of therapeutic benefits and have been noted in history as being used for fragrance and medicinal purposes for thousands of years.
  • It is a NATURAL fragrance.

What the Wick is Going on?
  • Our candles are made using a flat, coreless, cotton, wick that is braided with thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability.
  • The cotton wicks are All Natural and have been primed with vegetable wax to hold its' rigidity.
  • They produce minimized "mushrooming"(which will occur with all natural wicks).
  • Virtually soot free
  • The wicks used to make our candles are lead-free. 

 Why All White?

  • Our candles are left in their natural soy wax color.
  • There may be a slight color difference between candles of different essential oils.  This is because pure essential oils vary in color depending on the individual plant oil used to scent the candle.
  • The natural choice is to leave synthetic made dyes behind.

Burning Instructions

  • CAUTION: do not to trim the wick too short as it will stop a full melting pool to occur.  Thus, an uneven burn will result. (I have found lighting the wick at the length it comes to you at is best).
  • Do not trim your wick while lit.  If you notice a "mushroom head" forming, just clip the very top before lighting.
  • Burn your candle at least one hour for every inch in diameter (approximately 3-4 hours).  This will help to ensure a complete pool of wax on the surface and helps to ensure an even burn.
  • Extinguish your candle with a Snuffer, this keeps your wick from smoking after you put it out.  Even all natural cotton wicks will smoke when blown out.
  • Keep your candle away from drafts and direct sunlight.
  • Burn your candle responsibly by keeping it away from children, pets, and flammable materials.
  • Never leave your burning candle unattended.

Enjoy your All Natural, Eco-Savvy Candle
