Thank you! My candles arrived quick, safe, and tightly packed in a nice box. Love all the scents! I like the idea that I’m using clean natural ingredients to scent my home. I especially love the Cider House Scent!!

About

100% all-natural soy wax.

Why soy wax instead of paraffin wax? Soy wax is made from soy beans while paraffin wax is made from petroleum. As a result, burning soy wax candles do not increase levels of CO2 in the air like paraffin candles.

Soy candles burn 50% longer than paraffin wax candles, more candle, more fabulous fragrance, less money spent.

Soy candles burn cleaner. What does this mean? Have you ever noticed the black residue on your walls, furniture, and carpet? That’s soot and it’s a bi-product of burning paraffin wax. This unclean residue from paraffin wax is carcinogenic. Soy wax is much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment.

Phthalate free.

Phthalates: Chemical enemy number one. Phthalates are used as binders and plasticizers. In the past few years, researchers have linked phthalates to a plethora of serious health-related concerns and illnesses like breast cancer and neurodevelopmental disorders.

At StarrLightCandleCo, we wanted to create a product that would bring any room to life with an enchanting fragrance. Our scents are a combination of pure essential oils like lavender, grapefruit, cedarwood, and rosemary and phthalate free fragrance oils. While essential oils are the “life blood” of plants, fragrance oils are man-made with the intention of mirroring natural scents and invoking a feeling or scent memory, like rain or a roaring fire. The fragrance oils we’ve selected are phthalate free and are all infused with essential oils to create a long lasting scent that incorporates and pays homage to the natural ingredients that inspire us.

I started making my own candles in early 2015, mostly as a hobby. I love burning candles in my home, but the big name companies and discount retailers were costing too much money to feed my candle habit. On top of that, all the candles I tried, while smelling nice and looking pretty, gave my husband and I headaches, and didn’t always burn clean. After doing some research on what actually goes into most candles, and the residual effects they can have on one’s health, I was fed up. Phthalates? Toxic fumes? Carcinogens? No thanks! After months and months of experimenting with different soy waxes, wicks, containers, fragrance oils, and essential oils, I've discovered a technique and finished product I am ecstatic about. I hand craft each and every candle, I melt, blend and pour each batch myself. If you choose a Starr Light candle, you can rest assured the highest level of time, care, and craftsmanship went into the making of your candle.
