With our allergies to Soy everything. We couldn't make a candle containing soy wax. So after months of testing different formulations we finally came up with a recipe that works. Our formula doesn't contain soy wax, palm wax, paraffin or any petrochemicals. It contains a blend of Coconut Wax! It's a clean burning candle with a 100% cotton wick that is self trimming and burns all the way to the bottom so no wax is wasted.
