Not all candles are created equally, though. And, I have been a loyal user of soy candles for many years. Soy candles are natural and crafted from soy wax, which is a processed form of soybean oil. Unlike paraffin candles, soy candles are soot-free. Better still, they burn cooler than paraffin, which means soy candles last 30-50% longer on average!
A wonderful company for high-quality soy candles is Old Factory. I especially like the 3-candle set, which contains three unique scents all centered around a specific theme. For example, the Fall Harvest set contains Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry and Autumn Leaves and is perfect for use in the kitchen.
Or, the Happy Holidays set includes Christmas Tree, Candy Cane and Gingerbread. Paired with your favorite Christmas music, these will help set the mood as you wrap a mountain of gifts, or would make a much-appreciated stocking stuffer.
But, my personal favorite is the Spa Day set which contains Cucumber, Lemongrass and Green Tea. I love these around the tub for a truly relaxing bath (so necessary at this hectic time of year!).
Each 2 ounce candle burns cleanly and evenly for 20 hours. The candles are hand-poured in the USA, have self-trimming cotton candle wicks, and use premium fragrance oils.
The Old Factory 3-candle set retails for $25.00 on Amazon. (At that price, you’ll want to order more than one!) And, don’t forget Amazon’s gift wrap option when shipping to friends and family.
Every purchase from Old Factory is 100% Guaranteed. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return your purchase for a full refund.
