Welcome to Little Shop of Candles,
All of my candles are made with soy based wax that holds a higher fragrance load and gives a stronger scent throw. The soy wax is FDA-certified & Kosher-certified. We use cotton wicks to ensure a consistent and clean burn. I am a one woman show therefore I personally pour, label and ship ALL candles myself to insure you are receiving the best candle that I can provide you with. The candle jars I use are 12oz glass jars. Wax is measure by volume and not weight. I fill each jar with 8oz of wax and leave enough room to close the jar with the lid on so not to damage the wick. Although you might see the exact 12oz glass container being sold or labeled as 12oz does not mean it actually contains 12oz of wax. It just means that is being labeled as a 12oz jar and not by the volume of the actual wax that it contains. I strive myself with being very open and honest with my customers and want to give you the very best information about my products.
Benefits of Soy Wax

-Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource.
-Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax and because of this, soy candles will burn slower or longer than paraffin candles.
-Soy wax burns with zero petro soot, creating petro soot-free-candles. soot free candles. Paraffin candles burn with petro-soot.
