I've officially decided... soy candles rock!!! I tried a Soy Sensations candle in Strawberry Jam... wow! I lit it in our dining room. In under an hour, the delicious smell of fresh strawberry jam was wafting throughout our entire house. Usually, when I light a candle, it'll make the dining room and living room smell good, and that's as far as it goes. These candles actually made the entire house, even the second story, smell wonderful. This isn't a sickeningly sweet smell either, it's a really yummy scent. The candles are all made without dyes to maintain the natural beauty of the soy candle. When lit, then cooled, the pool of wax hardens into a very pretty, almost primitive look. Soy Sensations offers a wide variety of scents, from Baby Powder, to Creme Brulee, to MacIntosh Apple, to Ylang Ylang. The prices are quite reasonable, a very large 18 oz. size jar is $21.95, and a 12-pack of votives is $15. The 18 oz. candle will last for many, many hours, as the soy burns rather slowly. It's very clean burning as well, no black soot or crumbly wicks. There is an included lid, but I leave mine off, as the candle keeps throwing scent even when not lit. This is a much better alternative to buying those cans of air freshener, and much less expensive. Also, soy is widely considered to be better for the environment than paraffin candles, and burn 30% longer. Paraffin wax is a by-product of kerosene, which come from petroleum. Soy wax is all natural and plant-based. Soy wax is biodegradable and water-soluble, either of which is paraffin wax. Paraffin wax emits 11 known toxins while burning, soy emits none! Also, paraffin wax contributes to our dependence on oil, while soy is grown right here in the Mid-West. I highly recommend Soy Sensation's candles... they're great for bringing delicious scents into your home.
