Compared to many of those commercially made, handmade candles are usually made using 100% natural and biodegradable soy wax, beeswax or vegetable base. Unlike paraffin candles, vegan friendly soy wax contains no toxins, pollutants or carcinogens. As bonus incentive, hand poured natural soy candles burn more cleanly and will also last longer.

Just like a fine perfume, a luxury candle is the elaborate creation of an exquisite fragrance, using high quality wax and wick, and presented in a dreamy container such as the crystal jars shown below.
