If you like Aveda's lavender than you'll love these. the perfect blend of lavender and rose. The scent throw is AMAZING lit or not, in fact I made these at night and the next day, late in the afternoon my house is still smelling amazing!
These are all handmade and handpoured by me in VERY small batches (perhaps 2-3 packs at the most) so I can control the quality.
Wicks are cotton for a cleaner longer burn.
These will be packaged in a beautiful ckraft gift box for keeping or giving.
Soy wax was developed as an alternative to petroleum or paraffin based waxes. These are by-products of the fossil fuel industry, produce carbon dioxide and can give off harmful soot and pollutants when burned. Soy is a natural, plant based wax that produces a clean flame with relatively no soot given off. It burns for longer and gives a brighter flame, reducing the amount of candles needed to give the same amount of light.
scientists point out that soy candles are helping to reduce the amount of petrol used – thus helping the environment. They also have benefits for people who suffer allergies, and add minimal pollution to the atmosphere of your home or the planet! Soy is a natural resource, and therefore fully biodegradable.
Another area where soy candles are advantageous is safety – they burn with a cooler flame than paraffin which means that containers or candlesticks are less likely to heat up to a temperature where they may crack or split. (Of course, any naked flame can still be a safety hazard, and should never be left unattended.)
While beeswax has long been the alternative natural choice for quality wax, it is also known as a relatively expensive product. Soybeans are cheap and easy to source, and the process is less complex than that of beeswax collection. This means that soy wax and candles can be produced at a lower cost than pure beeswax – with many of the same benefits.
So treat yourself and the planet! These burn forever
