How did you start?
I started making candles for myself. I wanted a good sized candle that was healthier, longer lasting, and better smelling than what I was buying. I finally figured out the perfect combination with a 16oz mason jar soy wax candle. After a couple of years of giving them away as gifts and repeatedly being asked to sell them... and here we are now making candles in Ray City, GA which is just north of Valdosta, GA in the southern part of the state.
What are these weird spots on the side of my candle?
These are called wet spots and do not affect the burn or smell of the candle. It's simply a by-product of using pure soy wax.
What kind of wax do you use?
We use a soy and coconut blend wax. A lot of "soy" candles sold commercially are actually a blend of paraffin and soy wax called IGI 6006. They'll have a better hot throw, but contain a petroleum by-product.
Soy and coconut waxes are completely natural, non-toxic, and biodegradable candle waxes. They use farmed soybeans and coconuts to make the wax. Which means this wax is actually a type of vegetable oil.
It releases fragrance naturally and for longer than most waxes.
How do I clean my mason jar after the candle is done?
The easiest method is to heat it up on a stove top or in an oven, then wipe it out with a paper towel. After that some soap and hot water will get the rest.
