Our soy candles are made with natural soy wax produced from American grown soybeans. Soy waxes burn longer and cleaner with minimal soot buildup. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. We use a blend of essential oils and phthalate free* fragrances to scent our candles. They will burn 18-25 hours if the wick is kept trimmed to 1/8th of an inch.
*Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. Some types of phthalates have affected the reproductive system of laboratory animals. They are used in hundreds of products, such as vinyl flooring, adhesives, detergents, lubricating oils, automotive plastics, plastic clothes (raincoats), and personal-care products (soaps, shampoos, hair sprays, and nail polishes).More research is needed to assess the human health effects of exposure to phthalates.
