Soy candles are available as frosted glass container candles in 3 oz votive size or as a 7.5 oz spa candle. The container candle will look great in any home decor. When finished, reuse the glass containers after washing. Repurpose the tumblers to use as drinking glasses or they create a space for paperclips, small hard candy, sunflower seeds, make-up brushes, small vases, etc. Or you can recycle the glass tumblers through your local recycling program.
Our frosted glass soy candles are topped with a silver lid to keep the dust out and the fragrance in until you are ready to enjoy it.
When you first remove the lid, you will find that a soybean has been placed in the wax. Think of it as a little reminder that you purchased both an American made and eco-friendly product made from soybeans.
We also carry tea candles, 12 to a pack. The tea lights are available in unscented or as a blended fragrance.
New to the "best candle" line is the 4 oz travel tin. Currently available in limited scents, the tin is small enough to use as a gift, stocking stuffer or to take your favorite scent along when you travel.
Benefits of a Soy Candle
Soy is slowly replacing paraffin in candle making and here is why:
- The wax comes from soybeans that are grown on farms in America's heartland, in states like Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, and Nebraska
- Soybean wax - made with pure soybean oil - is eco friendly, biodegradable, and free from herbicides and pesticides. It is renewable and burns virtually soot free - about 90-95 percent less soot than paraffin
- When made into a candle, the wax burns nearly twice as long as traditionally used paraffin. Since the wax burns at a cooler temperature, you'll enjoy the candlelight longer.
All of our long lasting soy products are made without dyes and all have lead-free wicks.
In fact, the wax we use - EcoSoya™ - is Kosher certified and is so pure that the melted oil pool is body safe. Both the melted unscented and the melted richly scented wax can be used as massage oil or for scented manicures. Just be sure to test on a small area first for allergic reactions.
