My candles are hand poured from natural vegetable waxes, including soy, palm, cottonseed, coconut. I only use a vendor for palm wax that gets his waxes from renewable sources and are members of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oils…

My candles are hand poured from natural vegetable waxes, including soy, palm, cottonseed, coconut. I only use a vendor for palm wax that gets his waxes from renewable sources and are members of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oils. I use hemp or cotton core wicks for a cleaner burning candle. The candles are scented all the way through. A UVB inhibitor is used to slow color fading.

When not making candles, I enjoy boating, swimming and exercise.
