So what’s the deal with soy candles?!

The sheer joy and “ahh­hh­ness” felt when lighting a brand new con­tainer candle, quickly gives way to the “ewwww” factor of the black soot that stains the glass rim and sur­rounding sur­faces. Soy wax is non-​​toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin, with no petrol-​​carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceil­ings, and fur­ni­ture, con­t­a­m­i­nate ven­ti­la­tion duct­work in your home, as well as add toxic car­cino­gens into the air you breathe. Soy can­dles are also slower burning than reg­ular paraffin can­dles. Buying soy can­dles is also an excel­lent way to sup­port agri­cul­tural growth in the US.

One of our favorite lines of soy can­dles comes from Spit­fire Girls. This beau­tiful line of soy-​​blend wax can­dles are hand crafted in Los Angeles by “free-​​range” artists. As each candle burns down it becomes a lumier illu­mi­nating the art­work printed on cherry wood that is wrapped around the glass. Simply Stun­ning. Avail­able in fab­u­lous Mag­nolia, Vetivert and Orris and Amber scents. Made to burn baby burn, these can­dles have an average burn time of 60 hours.
