SheSells Candles

SheSells Candles are locally handmade with all natural soy wax and have the highest quality fragrance oils for a delightful, room filling scent. All elements of the candles, from the glass jars to the soy wax are purchased from companies that manufacture in the USA - as local as possible. They make a wide variety of wonderful scents that will appeal to everyone. 

SheSells Candles are made with custom blended and individually hand poured soy wax. Each candle has 9 oz of beautiful fragrant wax that has an approximate burn time of 70 long hours. 

A characteristic of pure, natural soy wax can be frosting of the candle. This tends to be more noticeable in colored soy candles. The frosting on a soy candles is similar to the frosting you can see on very fine chocolates. It is the result of a natural product and has no effect on the burning or scent of the candle. In fact, it is one way to know that the candle you are burning is 100% soy. 

Benefits of Soy Wax:

Clean Burning -- Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin with no petrol-carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceilings and furniture, as well as add toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe.

Long Burning -- Soy Candles burn slower and cooler than paraffin wax creating a longer burning candle.

Renewable Resource -- The major advantage that soybean wax has over paraffin is that its source, soybeans, can be renewed so much more quickly than a paraffin source, crude oil. Whereas oil, a fossil fuel, takes millions of years to form, a crop of soybeans can be replanted at least once a year.

Biodegradable -- Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (basically made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax.
