The Joy of Soy (Candles)

August 02, 2017 1 Comment

 What's so good about soy candles?  We've gotten this question once or twice so I thought I'd tell you a bit about La Bella Cavalla candles.

 Our candles are made of a premium soy-blend wax that burns cleanly and creates no soot.  Our 11 oz tumbler candles will burn for up to 90 hours.  The oils used to scent our candles are 100% pure essential oils, derived from natural sources.  The wax is heavily scented so the candles smell as good at the last hour of burn as they do at the first hour.

Yes, our candles are more expensive than what you can buy at your local discount department store, but you're getting a longer cleaner burn and superior, naturally-derived aroma.  We challenge you to try one of our candles.  If you don't think it's awesome, return it for a full refund.

Here are some tips to extend the life of your candle.

  1. The first time you light your candle you should not see smoke and soot. If this happens, the wick may be a little too long. Trim it just a little, but leave at least a quarter inch. You should trim the wick as necessary for the life of the candle.
  1. When you first light your candle,  allowit to burn until the wax melts and pools evenly along the entire surface, edge to edge. The entire top should be liquid. This is very important on the first burn. Typically, allow about an hour per surface inch of candle.  For instance, a three-inch diameter candles should burn fo about three hours the first time you light it to allow the surface to melt evenly.
  1. After your initial use, it is recommended you do not burn your candle more than 4 hours per use. This will increase carbon deposits. The wick may mushroom creating soot and smoke leaving debris in your wax.

At this point, we can only offer one or two scents at a time. We do plan to add some new, fun and inspiring scents to our line up. Coming soon, "Bella's Favorite Treat!" -  Can you guess what it might be?

I love my soy candle! I am unable to burn most candles due to severe allergies to the scents in them. I have been burning my Fresh Hay candle with no problems at all!

I live in the hottest and most humid part of Florida - we are about as far away from any seabreeze as you can be -- and taking care of horses in August can be unpleasant.  BUT I can tell you, this bandana makes a huge difference.  It truly helps you feel cooler all over.
