Okay so I'm super excited. I bought two candles from Way Out Wax http://www.wayoutwax.com/ which is a company that makes 100% based soy candles.
I am almost finished with them and I don't want to throw them out because I know there really aren't any glass recycling services here in NYC. Instead what I did was I contaced the company and asked them what I should do with the empty containers when they are done burning. They told me that since they are frosted glass they are meant to be reused for glasses. All I have to do it wash them out with warm soapy water. And they are good to go! So super cool!!! Also, if I collect twelve of them, for a small amount of cash, I can get them refilled with one scent.
Anyway, this company is great. They hand pour their wax and they believe in eco-friendly living.
Hey Bardgal! Another line of awesome soy, non-toxic candles w/ lead free wicks is www.lilahliving.com Their soy comes for US farmers and the candle glasses are recyclable, very cool. I also like to dip my fingers in and use the wax as a body oil. They also have a great body scrub.
I just tried A Scent of Scandal vegan soy wax candles. They are amazing! Funny names too, like D-cups, which has a scent of melons! Ha ha Smells wonderful while burning too, enough to scent the entire room.
I make and sell natural vegan soy candles.I am based in Australia but ship internationally. All of mine are hand-poured, chemical-free, cruelty-free, natural and Vegan. I am also PETA approved and in the process of getting Vegan Society approved. Be careful with some of the bigger brands / companies as they mix in lots of nasty stuff to their candles, and many are not vegan-friendly.
My website is under construction right now but if anyone wants to know more, email me at: email@example.com.
The soy candles that I sell on my website, www.handmadegourmetsoycandles.com , are made from all-natural biodegradable soybeans that are grown by farmers in the USA. They are also made with pure/premium fragrances and lead-free cotton wicks. I also have massage candles that moisturizes your skin and leaves it silky smooth with a light delicate scent. Each soy candle is handmade and the fragrances are out of this world.
