What is it about candles?

They add warmth and coziness to any room. And when they have a favored with scent, they can take you to different sense memories or helped create new ones. One of my favorite things after a bad day, is to light candles in the bathroom while the tub fills with warm water as it makes lovely bubbles. I turn off the overhead light, put a glass of wine by the tub and get in...if I need more, I will add soft music as I slide into the tub. There I stay until the water gets all cold and scummy, the wine is gone, and I feel gentle of spirit and ready to sleep.

I thought you might enjoy some of our FaceBook Q&A, If you are, read on, and if you are not, carry on.

Sandy hi...please tell me what a kosher candle is? a friend and i are still trying to figure it out.

Greatlakessoybean Candles KOSHER MEANS THAT THE PRODUCTS (WAX) IS PURE SOY NO BLENDS OR ADDITIVES

Sandy
does that mean no fragrance? what is the difference between these and your other candles?

Greatlakessoybean Candles No they have scent. Some people use paraffin in their soy candles or palm wax.You can do this and still call it a soy candle if it is 55% soy. Soy is the hardest wax to work with and the paraffin makes it easier. Therefore, the wax that I use is pure kosher soy wax no blends. Does that help you?

Sandy
cool! will you now talk to me about wicks...why some wicks smoke more than others don't.
Greatlakessoybean Candles
If the proper wick is not used is one reason a candle smokes. another is the scent...the color...any air movement...not trimming the wick...these are just some of the many many variables... 2 main things are the wrong wick for the container ,scent, color or not trimming it. Have a great night♥
