Candles have been used for centuries for their soothing, relaxing and therapeutic benefits. They can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in any room, and the soft flickering light they emit is often associated with romance, meditation and mindfulness. However, not all candles are created equal, and some are better for the environment and your health than others. Let’s explore the benefits of soy wax candles and why they should be your go-to choice.

What are Soy Wax Candles?

Soy wax candles are made from soybeans, a natural and renewable resource. The wax is created by hydrogenating soybean oil, which turns it into a solid form. Soy wax candles are free from toxins and chemicals, unlike paraffin wax candles, which are made from petroleum by-products. Soy wax candles are also biodegradable and have a lower carbon footprint than paraffin wax candles.

Benefits of Soy Wax Candles

·       Natural and Sustainable

Soy wax candles are made from a renewable resource that is biodegradable, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. Soybeans are grown without pesticides or herbicides, making them an eco-friendly choice. Soy wax candles are also vegan-friendly, as they don't contain any animal products or by-products.

·       Clean Burning

Soy wax candles burn cleaner and longer than paraffin wax candles. They don't produce soot or smoke, which can cause respiratory problems and damage to your home's furnishings. Soy wax candles also emit less carbon dioxide and fewer toxins into the air, making them a healthier option for you and the environment.

·       Better Scent Throw

Soy wax candles have a better scent throw than paraffin wax candles. This means that they release their fragrance more effectively, filling your room with a pleasant aroma. Soy wax candles also hold their scent for longer periods, so you can enjoy their fragrance for longer.

·       Cost Effective

Soy wax candles may cost a little more than paraffin wax candles, but they are more cost-effective in the long run. Soy wax candles last longer than paraffin wax candles, so you won't have to replace them as often. They also burn more evenly, so you won't waste any wax.

How to Choose Soy Wax Candles

When choosing soy wax candles, look for products that are made from 100% soy wax. Some manufacturers may mix soy wax with other waxes, such as beeswax or palm wax, which can diminish the benefits of soy wax.


Soy wax candles are the natural, sustainable and eco-friendly choice for anyone looking for a clean, healthy and cost-effective way to enjoy the benefits of candles. They are made from renewable resources, burn cleaner and longer than paraffin wax candles, and have a better scent throw. So, the next time you're shopping for candles, choose soy wax candles and experience the difference for yourself.

Hello there


People ask me all the time about how I choose a fragrance for our e-store. To be honest, most of the fragrances we carry are member requested. Yep, we take requests!!


But what we do after the request is a little more involved. We put all the requests (or our suggestions) on a list. Right now I think there are about 15 different fragrances on the list. They are broken down into different types (categories) of fragrances. We have 5 basic categories we use. They are Fruity, Florals, Fresh & Clean, Tropical and Woodsy. Every request generally falls under one or more of these categories.


Around the end of the month, I look over the list an try to whittle the total down to a minimum of 5 choices. Basically one fragrance from each group. Then I search the fragrance distributors I use to find the best fragrance oil for each choice.


Once the fragrance arrives is when the fun begins. From this point I pour at least 4 of each fragrance using my standard method. Then after they sit a couple of days I check the hot and cold throws and then burn test them (all the way to the bottom). After that if the fragrance passes with good hot and cold throw and smells good during the burning process then it goes into production to offer our members. If not, we go back and work with different methods to increase the throws and go through the process once again.


The majority of the time we can get the fragrance our customers request just right for them, but there are the handful that just can not pass muster. At that point they are removed from the list and another request takes its place.


The whole process takes about 3 weeks start to finish. In other words what we get in February will generally be available on the members only page about April. It’s a rather involved process and takes time to get everything just right. But well worth it according to our members.


Do you have a fragrance that you would like to see available? Maybe there is just a fragrance you would like to have us make just for you. Perhaps there is something that you use to buy we do not offer anymore and would like us to carry it again. Either way, if you suggest a fragrance and we choose to produce it, I will give you a Classic Candle & Wax Melt of that fragrance absolutely FREE. I will even pay for the shipping. Click Here to send us your suggestions. Matter of fact send as many as you like.


There you have it. Now you know how I go about choosing a fragrance as well how we test it for production. Hope this helps you understand a little more about TPC and its inner workings.

At one time in our history, candles were used primarily for functional purposes, to light our homes and businesses after dark. Today, candles are used to help us relax and rejuvenate. Beautifully scented candles are a perfect complement to a good book, a hot bath and good meal. They are also the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. With all of their many uses and great benefits, scented candles make the perfect Valentine's Day gift for a special someone or for good friends.


Smell is one of our most powerful and satisfying senses. Smell can help evoke feelings of pleasure, calm and romance. I will share three reasons why scented candles would make a great Valentine's Day gifts.


1. Scented Candles are Inexpensive

Scented candles are an inexpensive and charming gift. You can find many great and sensationally smelling candles at really good prices. A good place to begin looking is at our Classic Candle scents online.


2. Scented Candles Can Affect Mood

Scent can evoke strong emotional reactions and thus affect how we feel. This is in part, because scent affects our olfactory nerves which in turn, have an effect on the limbic system. The limbic system affects things like serotonin. Serotonin is the hormone that makes us feel happy. As a result, scented candles can be very good for one's emotional health.


Our past experiences with a particular scent, also determine our feelings for a certain smell. So ask your friends or your partner what their favorite scents are to make sure that the candles you purchase, trigger happy memories and not bad ones.


3. Scented Candles Can Be Healing

Studies have shown that particular smells can positively affect our emotions, mood, memory and even our physical bodies. Scented candles are an inexpensive and enjoyable way to take advantage of the power of smell. When you are shopping for the Valentine's Day candle be sure to consider the decor of the home of the person that you are purchasing the candle for. You will want to buy something that looks good in their home. If you don't have an idea of what might look good, simply ask them. The careful consideration and care that goes into choosing just the right scented candle, for the Valentine's Day holiday, will be greatly appreciated by the receiver and will contribute to the quality of the gift.


Looking for that perfect candles for friends, relatives or loved ones for Valentine's Day? Maybe even for that “pain-in-the butt” neighbor? Well we have you covered for that.
