Since I love burning candles for any reason and I have made a goal to go more natural and organic, I started to do some research. I have found soy candles are better for the environment and my breathing while still providing me with the ambiance and light scents I love. Soy candles burn longer and with less soot than your standard paraffin candles. That paraffin soot not only builds up on the candle jar, but also in the air and on everything in your home.
Now that you have the background, I want to tell you about a great company located in Edmond, Oklahoma. Soy Candle Cottage grew out of the owner’s need for a cleaner candle. After noticing the black dust covering her blinds and furniture, LeAnn and her daughter began making soy candles for their own use. Since soy candles burn longer they had accumulated quite a stock so they started off at the local Farmers Market and grew into the wonderful business they have today.
You can find Soy Aftershave for Men, which is Naturally formulated with Soy Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E. They added other oils such as orchid, lavender, rose geranium, and a bit of mint-sage fragrance for a cooling effect.
Also you can find natural Soy Lip Balm Made from hydrogenated soybeans, coconut oil, and a touch of soy wax to provide ‘lasting power’. Firm enough to stay on your lips, but doesn’t have a ‘waxy’ feel.
Soy Candle Cottage has more natural soy products that I can list here. They are much MORE than your normal candle store. LeAnn states, “ In developing this business from the ground up, I have learned so much about how nature provides the very best for our use…the best substitute for chemicals that pollute our homes and affect our skin.” She also added, “ My goal is to offer high quality, natural products for bodies and homes at an affordable price.”
Soy Candle Cottage has generously offered to give one Espacularaiesa reader a soy candle in the scent of readers choice.
