Today is the day!!!! We will be donating a portion of all sales made today online to the American Cancer Society!
Cancer is a terrible thing. After witnessing what it can do first hand, I want to be able to give back so that other families won't have to go through the heart ache it can bring.
Thank you for all of your support in the fight against cancer!

Why is the first burn so important????
When you burn soy candles, they have a memory! This means that if the wax was only melted halfway to the jar when you blew it out, this is where it will melt to every time you re-light it. Your candle will burn straight down the center, called "tunneling", and you are left with wax stuck to the sides.
Make sure you have enough time to let the wax pool all the way to the edge of the jar the first time you light it. This can take up to 3 hours depending on what size the jar is and what fragrance is in it. Generally we say to allow 1 hour for every inch in diameter of the jar. So if the jar is about 2 & 1/2" wide, it will take around 2 & 1/2 hours to achieve a full melt pool!
After the first burn, it will take less time to achieve that same melt pool, but always allow it to reach the jar before blowing it out! If you only have a few minutes to be home, wait until later when you can truly enjoy the fragrance you get from a full melt pool!
Hope this helps!!!!
So many people ask me why soy candles are better than paraffin! This is something I could go on about all day if you let me, but I will try to make it as short and sweet as I can for you!
* Derived from petroleum, which is a limited resource.
* Burning Paraffin candles contributes to indoor air contamination by emitting petro-chemicals causing soot deposits and carcinogenic particulate matter.
*Paraffin wax is really hard to deal with or remove from anything.
*This wax contains petroleum by-products and additives that inhibit biodegradability.
*Purchasing paraffin products not only supports our dependence on this crude oil but also supports an industry riddled with environmental faux pas.
*Derived from a plant, soybeans are a renewable resource.
*Soy wax burns much cleaner and purer as it is all natural, non-toxic, and non-hazardous.
*This wax is biodegradable leading to reduced landfills.
*Soy wax residue can be washed away with warm water and soap. *Purchasing soy products supports the soy farmers of America, which stimulates our economy and lessens dependence on international resources.
So in conclusion, the pros of soy wax far out- weigh the cons of paraffin wax.
Go Green, Go Clean...Go Soy!
I have a lot of customers asking about why you need to trim the wicks! Or they come to me with black soot on their jars and want to know what happened... The answer is simple.
The flame is the problem! If you allow your flame to grow too big it will be exposed to too much oxygen which fuels fire! This allows the flame to reach the sides of the jar and causes soot to buildup on the sides. Also if your flame is too big, your candle will burn much faster than it should and you will find yourself buying more candles quickly!
Our candles are meant to burn clean and slow. If you keep your wicks trimmed before every time you light it, your candle should take about 1-2 hours to form a perfect melt pool and it should not have any black soot on the jar!
Now, you may see a "mushroom" form after you have your candle lit for a couple of hours! This is something that happens all the time! It is simply carbon buildup from the wick burning the fragrance oil inside the candle. It just simply needs to be cut off before you re-light the candle!
