Pick of the Week: BsaB Soy Candles

Candles have been a core part of human interaction and celebrations for over 5,ooo years. During this span of time, humans have perfected and refined the art of candle making, which began by using melted animal fat.

BsaB’s Soy Candles in Glass ($23) are made from 100% hand-blended soy wax. Soy wax is biodegradable, and it burns clean and without black smoke. Plus, soy wax burns 30% longer than paraffin wax (count on a 45 minute burn time)!  BsaB’s Soy Candle wicks are made of 100% unbleached cotton and the packaging is 100% recyclable. The candle is poured into a reusable container made from recycled glass. Even the ink used on the labels is made from soy!

BsaB’s Soy Candles also contain essential oils for aromatherapy. Two scents are available:

  • Ambrosia- Features a light citrus and floral scent and is blended with tangerine, grapefruit, lemongrass, ylang ylang, lavender and sandalwood essential oils
  • Ancient Sands- Features cardamom, ginger, elemi, nutmeg and clove essential oils and is one of the company’s most popular scents.
