Thank you for visiting Ms. Betty's Bad-Ass Candles!

Our goal is to create the best customer service experience and premium soy candles, lip balm, body butters, greeting cards and even beard balm. We are proud of the fact that we use all natural soy wax, reusable rock glasses (psst, they're whiskey glasses), recycled paper dust caps and our all natural lip balms. We want that special person to know that when they receive one of our candles, they are bad-ass.

When someone receives a gift from Ms. Betty's Original shop, we want them to know they are bad-ass.


There are a few questions people frequently ask, so I thought this might help answer those up front.

Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Using candles made from soy supports local agriculture and farmers.

Benefits of Soy Candles
A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns.

Non-toxic - Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn.

Last Longer - Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.

Better Scent - Our soy candles have a good scent throw -- the fragrance that you actually smell when burning. One of the reason is because we use a softer soy wax which allows our candles to burn more slowly than paraffin candles. The longer the burn, the more scent is released.

How big you ask? Okay, we know, size does matter. Our candles come in two sizes, our 11 oz heavy-base rocks glass and once filled with the wax will weigh in at around 1 1/4 lb each and our candles are conservatively rated to burn for 50-65 hours. The other size we offer are the 6 ounce travel candles that come in tin containers. These containers are 1 and 11/16th inches tall and 2 13/16th inches diameter and burn approximately 25-30 hours when following the instructions on the inside of the lid.

Recycle/Upcycle - Once these jars are thoroughly cleaned out, they are great to use for sipping whiskey, bourbon, cola or your favorite beverage. Use as a storage container to keep cotton balls or odds and ends in the bathroom. Think about the possibilities, but please, do not throw in the trash.

Body Butter - Body butter is a skin moisturizer that is thicker than lotions and is extra effective at rejuvenating dry skin, whether used all over or only on problem patches, such as elbows and knees. The best time to apply body butter is just after your daily shower to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day.

Lip Balm - Our lip balm is all natural and we only use pure essential oils to flavor and come in standard .15 ounce tubes.

About

A Little Bit About Us

Ms. Betty's Original Bad-Ass Soy Candles is a business started by Scott and Margi Higdon in the fall of 2013. The inspiration for this entire brand is our friend Betty. She always says it like it is and if you get your feelings hurt, you just don't get her.

It all started when we wanted to give Betty a unique gift for her birthday. Betty loves candles and since she was the original inspiration, we wanted to give her a candle that would capture her energy and especially her attitude. We brainstormed for a while trying to get just the right name. When we did, we knew it and "Ms. Betty's Original Bad-Ass Bitch" soy candle was created. Instead of a listing the scent on the label, we used the phrase, "Any scent I F'N want" because that is exactly the type of response Betty would give you, if asked. We gave the first candle to her and she absolutely loved it.

We have been able to involve our family and friends along the way and we are all enjoying watching our business grow. If we aren't preparing candles, then we were ordering more supplies or tracking shipments and taking care of our customers.

Our goal is to create the best customer service experience and premium soy candles you can buy, from our use of all natural soy and reusable rock glasses (psst, they're whiskey glasses), to our recycled paper dust caps. We want that special person to know that when they receive one of our candles, they are bad-ass.
