Oh boy are you in for a treat today. As I mentioned on Friday, I have recently discovered soy based candles. A little recap on how I ended up here- As a child my mom was always burning candles in the house. She even sold them! So I was raised to learn this love of candles. A couple years ago I went through this phase (oh man I went through plenty of awful phases), where I decided that candles were a fire hazard and that I shouldn’t burn them. Silly me! Fast forward to a little less than a year ago I decided to go back to candles. I should have known I couldn’t stay away forever, candles are a wonderful thing. Shortly after though, I learned how dangerous your traditional candle is. Paraffin candles release toxic, hazardous, chemicals into the air when you burn them! I was so upset to learn that, I couldn’t bare the idea of burning them with little T around but I didn’t want to stop. I looked into alternatives and discovered soy based candles. A more natural and non-hazardous way to enjoy your favorite scents. They burn cleaner and longer!
Like normal candles, these babies seemed to come at quite a high price. I swear it must have been fate because just days after learning of soy based candles, Zakiyah Candles reached out to me. I hopped right on that boat!
Zakiyah Candles is a small company run by a mama who hand-makes her candles with 100% natural soy wax along with high quality oils. She has quite the array of scents and the quality of these candles and the containers they come in just amazes me. Did I mention that they are extremely affordable?
