Frequently Asked Questions



What is the difference between Soy Candles vs. Other Candles?

Soy candles are an eco-friendly choice and have a much longer burn time than other non-soy candles. They also hold more fragrance and can be used as a body massage oil/lotion. Best of all, in testing done they were deemed a non-health hazard unlike paraffin based candles like the ones Bath and Body Works and Yankee Candle use.

What are your candles made of? 

All of our candles are 100% natural Soy wax - with no additives or fillers. We use the highest quality Essential and Fragrance Oils.

Are your products homemade?
