our candles are all handmade in Belgium. We only use the best ingredients and try to be as ECO as possible.
Soy candles are made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Paraffin candles often create a significant amount of black soot that collects on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. The soy candle may accumulate some black soot on the jar, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn. Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size, according to Planet Green. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.
Aesthetically, we love the soft glow they give off. The flames appear fuller, more beautiful. The subtle crackles you can hear while they are burning are so comforting. Once you use one, we think you’ll agree. Gone are the days of mushrooming, where the wick begins to obtain buildup and fold over. Wood tends to lessen the amount of soot produced, too. From an artisan’s point of view, for us - the candlemakers - they’re incredibly easy to use and work with. We believe that they’re a gorgeous and unique alternative to your everyday cotton ones.
Let's get blown away by a very rich scent of fruit and roses with a heart of amber and forrest wood with a sweet lily and jasmine touch, blessed with the powerful aroma of patchouli. A touch of cedar and sandalwood, crowned by sweet vanilla musk.
