Why soy?

Soy wax burns cleaner and produces as much as 90% less soot that paraffin wax, reducing the amount of indoor pollution.

With a baby in the home all of my decisions are made with him and his well being in mind. I personally don’t want to breath in toxins so why should you? I choose to use 100% Soy Wax to make all candles and wax melts because they contain nothing artificial. These waxes are a better alternative to old-fashioned paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum oil and produces harmful by-products like benzene (a carcinogen) when burned or melted. Soy Wax is non-toxic making it better for both the environment and your health!

How is soy wax made?

Soybeans are husked and dried into flake form, then the oil is extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation alters the chemical compound so that soybean oil is a solid at room temperature – soy wax! Leftover bean husks are typically used as animal feed.

Are your fragrances phthalate free?

All our fragrances are phthalate free.

Are your candles vegan? Do you test on animals?

Our candles and fragrances are considered vegan! We are happy to report that neither we nor our suppliers engage in animal testing.

Do you use essential oils in your candles?

We use fragrance oils that do have 80% components of essential oils, but we do not use straight essential oils. While we love essential oils, we think that natural fragrance oils are better for use in candles, as the scent throw is stronger. All of our fragrance oils are natural blends to a clean non toxic burn.

How fragrant are your candles?

We find that our candles fill a medium to large sized room nicely. For larger rooms or rooms with high ceilings we recommend our 16oz candle. Medium room we recommend our 8oz candle. Our 6oz candles are better burned small space such as a bathroom.
