Our Difference

The most common wax used for candles today is paraffin, which is a petroleum waste product. When burned, paraffin candles release highly toxic chemicals into the air, including benzene and toluene – both known carcinogens. That combined with synthetic fragrances and other additives can be pretty icky for our air. Over the last decade, soy wax has grown immensely in popularity as a cleaner option for candles. However, it has become increasingly difficult to source these waxes without additives or other waxes (like paraffin or palm) added in by the manufacturer. Because of this, most candles (even many labeled “all-natural”) contain things like UV inhibitors to prevent fading, and Vybar, a polyalphaolefin added to enhance color and fragrance.
Many of our customers ask why we don’t make our candles with essential oils. While this was originally my plan (and I  had a very hard time letting it go), during my extensive research I found that essential oils should never be used in candles. In fact, essential oils should not be heated at all as heat and sunlight can change the chemical composition of the oils. Not only can they become toxic, but they lose their beneficial health properties (learn more about this from the Wiley online library as well as doTerra & Young Living).
So what’s the alternative? Using superior quality, phthalate free fragrance oils infused with essential oils that are designed for candles and SAFE to burn!
All of our products are hand poured in small batches, and then cured for a minimum of two weeks to ensure quality, consistency, and top-notch fragrance.
