Candles Soy


Sorry folks - all new photos and prices are coming for our soy candles. The old containers are no longer available so we have had to change all the photos, weights and prices. However, the soy wax we use, the colours and the aroma blends are still the same!

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 call ours Soybeams and they come as large, medium and small. Our old bulb shaped glass containers are no longer available, but we now use simpler more modern straight sided Monaco jars. We have also stopped making tealights, although there are still a few available, so it's worth inquiring.

Soybeams are beautiful clear glass containers, with lids. They make attractive gifts.  We prefer not to send the large ones via post due to the breakage risk, but the medium and small ones are reasonable. The medium soybeams burn approximately 40 hours, so they can be lit again and again, filling the room with delightful fragrance. The small ones burn around 8 hours, depending on temperature and wind conditions.

The following products are available for Candles Soy



Soybeams are beautiful safe glass containers with lids, containing sustainable bio-friendly soy wax candles with pure essential oils added at a minimum of 4 percent. They are filled with only pure essential oils so they make beautiful luxurious gifts. Each Medium soybeam takes 160 gms soy wax and burns around 40 hours, so you can use them again and again. The smaller ones burn around 8-10 hours.

In our shop we also offer the much larger  Soybeams to personal shoppers at $35 each. However, we have found these too fragile to be freighted for mail order customers. They need to be carried on planes as hand luggage.

Soy Tealights

Sorry - we are phasing out our tealights as just too fiddly to make. However, a few still remain. Feel free to phone for more information.

Burn time is a good 6 hours per tealight.
