Using 100% natural ingredients, EcoScents hand-pours safe and environmentally friendly soy candles in myriad of nostril-massaging fragrances. The hot-apple pie candle lets you relax to the scent of an all-American dessert without dirtying any dishes and at 16 ounces it promises about 110 hours of sweet-smelling burn time ($14.25). The brand-new ginger-lime candle heralds the springtime with an invigorating twist of lime and a circulation-stimulating snap of ginger ($14.25). An 8-ounce caramel-latte candle provides the olfactory experience of a latte without the caffeine surge and sudden desire to challenge neighborhood dogs to foot races ($11.25).
EcoScents' soy candles are free of carcinogens and toxins and their low-temperature melting point makes these candles safe to use for even the most clumsy candle connoisseur—melted soy wax feels like warm bath water if it contacts the skin. During their visit customers are welcome to watch the candle-creating process and discuss wax-ball-related mysteries with resident philosophers.
The eco-conscious candlestick makers at EcoScents engineer a vast array of aromatic soy-based candles and flameless soy square burning lamps using premium, all-natural ingredients. The biodegradable soy candles burn up to three times as long as their paraffin brethren without releasing toxins or smoke rings that turn into collars for pet ghosts. Every candle is hand-poured to ensure consistency, and cotton wicks receive a vegetable-based wax treatment to reduce smoke.
