About the Candles
Minimize waste, benefit society, be bright.
Brightwise Candles are made by melting 100% soy wax chips and blending with unique fragrance that contain essential oils. This mix is hand poured in small (tiny) batches (it's about 6 at a time) and allowed to cure for 2 weeks before being sold to you. They are beautifully packaged in recycled boxes or reusable bags. Before burning they are kept free of dust with a tin lid or with a plantable seed paper dust cover. Minimize waste, benefit society, be bright.
Soy wax is a renewable and sustainable material that we source from vendors that process domestically grown soy beans. Its all about supporting the American farmers! There is no paraffin anywhere in our candles because it is toxic to burn crude oil by-products.
Fragrance is a combination of natural essential oils and diluents that allow the distribution of aroma compounds in the essential oils that were removed from the seeds, flowers, leaves, roots, and stems or bark of plants. We use fragrance that is rigorously safety tested and completely, totally, 100% phthalate-free.
Wicks are used to melt the wax so the fragrance can fill a room. We use a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton. The reinforced construction of the wick is designed to ensure a consistent burn with high fragrance, especially with soft soy wax. All our wicks are lead and zinc free.
Soy candles are a bit temperamental. They are known for often having a bumpy or cratered surface after burning compared to the smooth post-burn surface of (toxic) paraffin. Think of this as a benefit and be rest assured you are burning a naturally-derived product.
