Announcement   Welcome to Soy Much Brighter Candle Co. (EST: 2014) Also available on Etsy Wholesale!

Soy Much Brighter is about bettering the environment for all. Its about curating useful & meaningful products that serve to ignite all the happy feels. Each candle is hand poured in small batches into recycled glass jars with nontoxic & vegan soy wax.

A wide variety of scents that include seasonal picks are represented in the Soy Much Brighter collection. Here's to hoping that you will find a scent that takes you to your happy place and reminds you of the most rad moments in your life!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Soy Much Brighter candles are made with either a wooden wick or a cotton wick. The two larger sizes (medium & large) are crafted with an organic wooden wick that makes the coziest crackling noise while lit. The small size candles are made with a lead-free cotton wick. All candles creates a special ambiance for a quiet candle-lit night spent snuggled on the couch with your favorite book. Or during a romantic evening with your love. Or simply a sweet addition to your guest bathroom during hosted dinner parties.

//The facts about the wax\\

The bad guys:
•Other wax counterparts (ex: Paraffin wax) release harmful carcinogens while burning. The pollution from a paraffin candle is the black smoke that you see while burning the candle. This also includes the soot that you see left behind after your candle is no longer burning.
•Paraffin is not a renewable resource, it cannot be made by man - which bodes dangerous for the environment since it is a byproduct of petroleum.
•The soot and smoke from this wax can also leave yellow markings on your walls. If its doing that to your walls, I wonder, what might it be doing to your lungs?
•A much shorter lifespan. Paraffin wax burns faster since it melts at a higher temperature. You really aren't getting that much burn time with these guys!

The GOOD guys:
•Soy wax as a healthy alternative gives you a clean burn. It is sourced directly from the soy bean, which is grown from our sweet mother earth. You aren't getting any gross black stuff or yellow walls here! AND you can trust that the air you and your family are breathing in is safe.
•Soy beans are renewable. And at a fast rate
•Virtually no soot!
•Soy wax candles last up to 50% longer than other wax options. The soy burns at a slower rate since the wax is softer. Softer wax+lower burn temperature= forever lasting candles. (well, at least LONGER lasting candles)
•Did I mention that soy wax really doesn't create any soot?

Custom creations are available for weddings, baby showers, and parties!

About

Crafted with you and the environment in mind

As our world evolves and changes, the importance of having safe products in our homes is becoming more and more evident. The eco-system, our homes, our bodies, our minds, are all craving a better way of living. A safer way of living that we can trust and use with the confidence that we aren't harming our very existence. Being mindful of the food we're eating, the things we lather onto our delicate skin, and the products we use everyday in our homes is becoming increasingly important.

These ideas have been running through my head for the last few years. Which got me started on a lot of research regarding the things I was using, burning, and spraying in my home. Being a tad candle obsessed, I started realizing that the black tar-like residue being left on my walls and within the mainstream candle jars that I was using wasn't a sign of a safe product. Digging in to the ingredients of a Paraffin wax candle - sold by most mainstream candle companies - had me floored! Then, Soy Much Brighter was born.

Candle making was the next logical step for me as a self-proclaimed health nut and environmentally aware soul — I wanted to unleash my creative side and craft an amazing product to promote veganism and well-being.

Soy Much Brighter Candles are inspired by “now” and designed for folks that delight in the present, a time of mindfulness and authenticity.

Here’s what you can always expect from my line of products:

 •Carcinogen-free, clean & safe burning
 •Dreamy fragrance blends
 •Recyclable, renewable materials
 •Playful, handmade items
