Things That Make Scents Soy Candles Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

Did you know candles can be harmful to you, your house and even the environment? This is something you probably don't think of. Things that make Scents has done some great research on this.

  • Soy wax burns cleaner resulting in less toxins for you, your children and pets to breathe, not to mention not damaging your home with black soot all over walls, ceilings, drapes, carpets, furniture and electronics
  • Soy wax is non-toxic and over time it won’t harm the environment making soy candles a “greener” choice
  • Soy wax burns cooler providing a 20% - 50% longer burn time so you get more for your money
  • Stronger scent throw cold and while burning means a more prominent scent throughout your home or office
  • Soy beans are a renewable resource and are grown in the USA which support american farmers and the american economy
  • Soy wax will clean up with soap and hot water

Things That Make Scents sent me some candles to try out. They sell a wide range of candles including Jar Candles, Tapers, Tarts, Waxed dipped critters (bears pictured) and even soaps. The fragrance list is huge! I had a hard time deciding on my favorite fragrances.

I ended up getting the Sunflower Honey Soy Jar candle. It has a wonderful scent that reminds me of summer in a beautiful shade of yellow (my favorite color!). The jar candle burns very nice with a steady sent.

Thinks That Make Scents started the OhSoy! Candle line in 2002. The owner Janine became frustrated with the soot stains paraffin candles left on her ceiling. After doing much research, she discovered that soybean candles were a cleaner, healthier alternative with an added bonus. Soy wax candles are more cost-effective than their petroleum-based paraffin counterparts and are healthier for our customers. She had such great internet success, a storefront was opened in New Jersey in 2007.

Things That Make Scents has graciously donated a $25 gift certificate to one of my readers.

I just saw the name "Funky Chunks Handmade Soap" and that was the first place I headed and I would buy the Green Tea Zen & Sugary Vanilla Spice soaps. Then I would add a Soy Wax Dipped Bear with a lavender scent. Bears are my absolute favorite animal and lavender is my absolute favorite scent.
