Soy wax is our wax of choice for all of our candles whether they are massage candles or regular candles. Our goal is to provide a candle that has a cleaner burn and is environmentally healthy and friendly so you can burn baby burn! toxin free. Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature increasing burn hours and allowing the use on skin without the risk of burns, however, we still recommend using precautions. It also doubles as a natural moisturizer in its own right making it skin safe, which, is key for our massage candles. Aside from the environmental and skin safe benefits it's a plus that it is a vegan alternative to using paraffin wax. When you buy our candles you don't have to worry about it being a guilty pleasure. Candidly speaking, you can buy them simply....with pleasure!
