Why You Should Only Be Using Soy Candles

We were way too excited to find out one of our friends starting hand making all natural and eco soy wax candles. These candles smell so divine, I can not stress this enough. Just last night, I used one of her packs of mini Tea light candles and added them to my crystal candles and my entire room smelled like sunshine on a rainy day. I used the grapefruit/mango pack and could smell them outside of the room.  These candles have no toxic chemicals, smell great and add an amazing touch to my alter and night stand. Thank you ‘A Birds Moon’ you have just become our #1 favorite for  Soy candles and these will make the perfect gift for my girlfriends just in time for the Holidays! Check out all her handmade items here.

Here are the top 3 reasons why you should switch to soy candles:

Soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released, since it’s considered to be a natural and sustainable product. Compare that to your traditional candle made of paraffin, which often creates a significant amount of black soot that ultimately lands on your walls and other surfaces in the home.

Soy candles are non-toxic, so they won’t release toxins into the air as they burn. In fact, soy wax candles are considered healthier for humans, pets, and the environment as a whole. Research has even shown that there are several toxins released by paraffin candles contain known carcinogens, which are cancer-causing agents. Nearly all of them have been considered as “toxic air agents” by various environmental agencies.

Soy candles are “slow burning”, which means they typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. Soy burns at a cooler temperature, so even though you may pay more for a soy candle initially, they’re worth the investment since you won’t have to buy new ones as frequently.

You guys, as small business owners, the struggle is REAL for getting cute packaging.  Companies either want you to pay a pretty penny for the schmancy look, or you are stuck with something, well, less than what you think your company and customers deserve.  So we are SUPER in awe of the packaging for A Birds Moon.

 Everything is branded, right down to the adorable business cards both available in black and white. It is cohesive, modern, but ‘homey’ at the same time.  You feel comfortable with this brand and you want to get to know it more.  All we can say is well done!!
