What makes Blue Violet Candles so unforgettable?

BlueVioletCandles are hand crafted, made with all natural soy wax and are unforgettably fragrant since I use the maximum amount of fragrance possible. After a year and a half of testing waxes, wicks and fragrances, I am so excited to have developed a recipe for exceptional long lasting, pure, clean smelling natural soy wax candles. My candles do NOT have a chemical smell like most paraffin candles do!

I also created a lot of my own fragrance that you will not find anywhere else!
Every fragrance I choose has been given a five star rating by other candle makers and customers. I test every fragrance I sell to make sure its fabulous! You will never find a dud in my shop!

Blue Violet Candles are hand poured at the ideal temperature for an incredible scent throw, and have cotton wicks for a long lasting clean burn with little to no soot. Blue Violet candles are long burning and will burn from side to side all the way from top to bottom so there is no wasted wax and no wasted money! I am always adding new fragrances so please visit often to see what's new!

Why choose soy?
Soy wax is a renewable, biodegradable and eco-friendly resource. Soy wax candles burn longer and the smoke does not contain carcinogens or other pollutants. It is also easy to clean- just use hot, soapy water to clean containers to recycle and incase of a wax spill it can easily be cleaned out of any surface.

I also take great pride in the fact that all of my supplies are purchase from American companies.

About

Beautifully fragrant natural soy candles are a necessity not a luxury!

My shop BlueVioletCandles is named after my two best four legged friends, my dogs Blue and Violet. Blue and Violet spent countless hours by my side as I was developing my recipe for my candles. It pains me to say that we lost Blue in September of last year but her memory will live on in BlueVioletCandles. Blue, you will always be in my heart and will always inspire me!

Two years ago I became obsessed with scented candles. At that time I was dealing with a lot of stress in my life. My mom had previously passed away from early onset Alzheimer at age 69 and a few years later my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. My father's health declined quickly and I spent almost everyday by his side at hospitals, rehab centers and nursing homes. Each day when I got home from the hospital or nursing home I relied on scented candles to unwind, soothe my soul and lift my spirits.

As an escape from the stress in my life I started making my own soy wax candles. It was very therapeutic for me to be alone, play my music and create my candles.

I chose to use soy wax for many reasons. The first is that it is the healthier option. Paraffin wax may have a very strong scent throw but the research show that it may be toxic as it is a byproduct of petroleum crude oil, yuck ! Another reason I chose soy wax is besides having a wonderful scent throw it also allows the candle's fragrance to burn with a real purity . Paraffin wax candles have a chemical smell that takes away from the true scent of the fragrance oil.

What makes Blue Violet Candles special?
Blue Violet Candles are are hand crafted and hand poured with care in my home in Elmhurst Il. I have developed a special blend of soy waxes and have tested all of my fragrance to make sure that I am producing the best quality of soy candle possible.

I am extremely passionate about my candles and am thrilled to be able to share them with the world. The idea of being able to create something that can have such a positive effect on so many people's lives is the main reason I am doing this!

Recycling is of utmost importance to me. When your candle has burned down to the bottom simply wash the container with hot soapy water and reuse. I purchase all of my supplies from American companies and am thrilled to be able to support our American farmers.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Make sure to visit my shop frequently as I am always adding new products.

~ Did you know soy candles have a memory? ~

When burning your candle for the first time, it is important to allow it to burn for at least 2 1/2 - 3 hours so that the melt pool reaches the edge of the container. This will help the candle avoid “tunneling” or burning straight down the center, which can affect the scent throw of the candle. Allowing your soy candle to create its initial “memory burn” will result in a complete burn and increased scent throw.
