Soy wax candles have a multitude of benefits over traditional, cheap, parrafin-based candles. Soy candles:

  • are made fom soyabean, which means soy candles are eco-friendly, bio-degradable and renewable
  • do not emit any harmful toxins or carcinogens when burnt like traditional parrafin candles
  • are soot free when they burn, eliminating any black residue left on the glass jar or around your home. (Any black that does occur is the result of the cotton wick being too long when burnt – it wipes off from the glass with a tissue)
  • last up to 50% longer than parrafin candles
  • burn at a cooler temperature than traditional candles, making them safer to use in your home
  • they are very easy to care for with minimal maintenance needed.
  • have a much purer scent-throw, meaning you smell the fragrance and not the wax
  • Also, the wax in soy candles is water soluble and very easy to clean.
  • All of our glass jars can be washed and re-used after you have burnt your candle.
  • Are you a great option for gifts and can make any room in your house or assisted living facility smell great!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I burn my candle to get maximum burn time?

Always burn the candle long enough for the wax to melt all the way to the outside of the jar but no longer than 4 hours at a time.

Before using next time -trim the wick, to prevent uneven burning and high flames making soot on the jars.

What sort of wax is used in our candles?

We only use 100% quality soy wax in our candles and also in our melts.

What is the best way to extinguish the flame of a candle?

Extinguish the flame by pushing the lid back on the jar rather than blowing it out. This means the fragrance in the room won’t be ruined by the smell of smoke from the wick-alternatively if you have a wick dipper -dip the wick in the candle wax and pull it straight out.
