My candles are made from a renewable source, SOY. They burn cleaner and longer than paraffin wax. I don't use any colour, they stay naturally creamy in appearance so it blends with any decor. I use only paper core wicks for a nice, clean burn. My wicks are chosen based on the size of the jar so that you get an even burn, all the way down. As long as you keep trimming your wick before re-lighting it, there will be little to no soot (black smoke). Always keep your candles lit until the wax has liquefied around the whole jar, usually about 3 to 4 hrs, extinguish, and relight after it has solidified again.
Soy wax only holds so much scent (if you add too much, the excess fragrance oil will not blend with the wax). I use the maximum amount of scent that the wax will hold so that you get the strongest candles possible. Some scents are naturally light, and won't have a strong scent throw, this is normal, all depends on the fragrance. I have over 50 scents available, visit my Fragrance Listing page!
Soy is completely washable ... once your candle has about 1/4 of an inch of wax left in the bottom, scrape the bottom of the jar to remove the majority of the wax and the wick, then simply wash the jar in hot soapy water and voila, your jar is re-usable! Great for the environment! Keep in mind also, if you happen to spill some wax on the floor, carpet even, just wash it away with hot water ...
Soy wax is also prone to "frosting". This is a characteristic of all natural soy wax, and makes the wax appear white or frosty. It does not affect the scent or burning whatsoever. Frosting is more apparent in my colored candles or melts. If you see frosting, you know it's soy wax!
My soy melt cubes are perfect for your electric or tealight melters. The scent throw is fantastic with these little cubes! Just pop one or two in your melter and enjoy the fragrance for 8-12 hours per cube.
Make the change to Soy - you won't regret it! Natural and Eco-friendly!
