100% U.S. Grown Soy Wax
Many candle makers and notorious brands use Paraffin wax or a blend of Paraffin with Soy Wax to make their candles. They choose Paraffin because it allows them to add a higher percentage of fragrance. Paraffin Wax was originally called Petroleum Wax when it was discovered. This wax is created from the sludge found at the bottom of the barrel when crude oil is refined into gasoline. The issue we see with Candles made with Paraffin, is that they release carcinogenic chemicals when burned. Burning paraffin candles can cause respiratory problems.
The Soy Wax we use undergoes a purification process to thoroughly remove any pesticides, herbicides or Genetically Modified Materials.
Essential oils are natural oils typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes. Essential oil uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments. We mix these oils with fine fragrances that are Phthalate free.
Phthalate Free Fragrances
All our fragrances are Phthalate FREE. We decided not to work with fragrances with phthalate because of the recent concerns linking high level of phthalate to health issues, specially in children.
While there are no regulations against phthalate use in candles, our main concern is the health of everyone using our products.
Cotton Wick Lead Free
Many candle makers don't like using Cotton wicks because cotton wicks are often limp and will fall over into the wax. To ensure our candles can be enjoyed until the last burn, we use a flat cotton wick braided with thin paper threads that gives the wick a rigid structure without the need for a core and free of chemical treatments. Our wick are designed to self extinguish for added safety.

Is our Wax non GMO certified?
Unfortunately no. Only a very small percentage of the total US production of soybeans is organic. About 98% of the soybean harvest has been either genetically modified (GMO) or non-GMO mixed in with GMO soybeans.
A designation of "Organic" is also not possible for any soy wax or any wax made from liquid vegetable oil that is turned into a solid. In order for liquid soybean oil to transform into a solid wax, the oil must undergo a chemical change. Due to this chemical change, the wax cannot meet an "Organic" Certification.
