Amaaria Soy Candles
What's so great about Amaaria Soy Candles?
Soy based candles are natural, there's no toxins, chemicals, genetically modified materials, it's pure goodness. Soy wax is also made from a completely renewable source and it's 100% biodegradable. Soy wax also typically burns longer than other waxes due to its slower & cooler burning temperature. Soy wax is easier to clean up that other waxes, some hot soapy suds will get it out of any carpets & upholstery and remnants left in jars or tealight vessles can also be cleaned out very easily, which brings us to the next topic.....
What's so great about the Jars & Tealight vessels used?
The glassware is made by the American brand Libbey, the quality is superb, the jars and votives are strong and durable and can be re-used. The heart tealights are made from non-toxic, heat resistant, recyclable polycarbonate plastic.
Wicks & Burn Times
The wicks are made from a textile grade cotton, they burn cleanly with a high flame and less mushrooming. The tealights can burn up to 12-hours, the trio votives twice as long and the large jars for at least 60-hours. Please keep in mind that environmental differences may have a bearing on burn times.
The All-Important Scents
The fragrances used to scent the candles are sourced from fragrance houses in both Australia & America. They are made from natural and synthetic materials, but they don't contain any of the nasty stuff like phthalates, paraffin or UV inhibitors. Purity is the key, even when it comes to the synthetic compounds. The scents are a symphony of smells beginning with the most popular scent:

Just a little note, Soy Wax does contract and expand. You may notice in cooler temperatures the wax will contract and come away from the side of a jar, it will however, expand in warmer tempartures. Soy wax may also develop a crinkled-look on the top of the candle, both of these characteristics are due to the natural state of Soy wax and neither effect the burning.
