We started Soul Mates Candles back in 2005 handcrafting each Soy candle from scratch using no chemicals, additives or other waxes.
OUR PURE SOY CANDLES ARE ALSO ODOUR ELIMINATORS!
Please note, Soy candles can’t be made into a free standing pillar without the addition of chemicals or paraffin wax! Simply put it’s just not possible!
There are so many new Soy Candle producers popping up in the last couple of years, it’s hard to know which Soy candles are truly only Soy! Do your web research on the producer.
OUR CANDLES ARE NOT A SOY- PARAFFIN BLEND OR CLEAN BURNING PARAFFIN ! (NO SUCH THING!).
When paraffin burns it emits an exhaust much like diesel fuel which contains poisonous chemicals such as benzene, toluene, naphthalene and tri-decane to mention a few!
We only use Pure Soy Wax. The soy beans are grown herbicide and pesticide free and are NOT GMO and Kosher.
WE DO NOT ADD ANY TYPE OF CHEMICALS SUCH AS VYBAR OR UV INHIBITORS to our Pure Soy Candles. Our candles will cure over time and you will notice a white chalky look as a result. Your candles will look rustic.
We only use Canadian and US made materials in our Pure Soy Candles. Our wicks are 100% pure cotton core and our packaging is also 100% eco friendly and made of local recycled materials.
Why we offer NO Essential oils to our customers!
Simply put, you can’t create the scent of a fresh baked Apple Pie using Essential Oils. People still love the scent of such things that we can’t naturally create. Our Synthetic Oils are of “natural formulation” and contain no cancer causing ingredients and are considered safe, pthalate-free and free of any petrochemical (paraffin) by-products.
Another reason for using Synthetic Oils is due to sustainability issues with Essential Oils. Synthetics replace diminishing natural raw materials and are more affordable to the consumer compared to Essential Oils. Essential Oils are also toxic to your pets.
If everyone used only essential oils to scent their products, we would create an imbalance on the planet from the over-harvesting of natural resources and destruction of forests and natural resources.
