Candles Soy


Why burn paraffin when you can burn these little gems, totally vegetable, beautiful and safe?

Our all vegetable soy wax container candles are safe, non-toxic, environmentally sustainable, and have many other advantages. They burn up to 50 per cent longer than paraffin candles, can contain higher levels of essential oils (we use 4 per cent), and spills clean up easily with hot soapy water. We love making them too.

We make 2 types: Soybeams and Tealights.

Soybeams are beautiful bulb shaped clear glass containers, with lids. They hold 125gm soy wax and are finished with gift tags and  beads on gold or silver cord, so they make very attractive gifts. These burn approximately 40 hours, so they can be lit again and again, filling the room with delightful fragrance. 

Tealights are made in the same aromas as the Soybeams. They come in clear non toxic polycarbonate holders, and you can buy them separately or in attractive little gift packs of 6. You can buy 6 of the same, or Pick & Mix your favourites. Burn these anywhere, or use them in your soybeam glassware when the originals are finished. Burn time is a good 6 hours for each tealight.

In addition, we make Unscented soy tealights.

Soybeams are beautiful safe bulb shaped containers with lids, containing sustainable bio-friendly soy wax candles with pure essential oils added at a minimum of 4 percent. We finish these bulbs with gift tags and wooden beads on white leather thonging, so they make beautiful luxurious gifts. Each soybeam takes 125 gms soy wax and burns around 40 hours, so you can use them again and again. These are now packaged more safely and attractively in gift boxes.

At Christmas time we optionally package our Peace, Celebration & Tree of Life soybeams in Christmas style with holly, gold bells etc. Just ask if you prefer these decorations. We also package them with Christmas soaps - see our Christmas Gift Collections.
