Oregon Rain Soy Candles are made with 100% soy with natural botanicals and cotton wicks, making them enviromentally friendly. We make our candles with soy because it supports U.S.A. farmers, burns cleaner than paraffin candles and it has a terrific scent throw. Soy wax melts at a low temperature so the scent and wax doesn't burn off as quickly as paraffin wax. Soy candles burn twice as long as paraffin candles so generally soy wax candles will burn 10 - 12 hours per ounce of soy wax. Soy wax is also water soluble, making it easy to clean up with hot water and soap. Enjoy our earth friendly soy candles!
