Tea Light Candles vs
Soy Tea Light Candles...





Tea Light Candles, I may have to get up on the old soap box here. I know, I know, you can go down to the local one buck store and buy a 100 pack for 5 bucks. A bag I looked at recently at one of these stores was from Israel, I was surprised to see they weren't from China.

In the next couple of paragraphs, I am going to make the case so none of us are ever tempted to ever buy any of these cheap candles again.

Those of us that love natural wax candles, want a clean, happy and healthy home. We go to every extreme. To invest in clean burning natural wax candles and are more than will to invest in the best.

Don't scrimp when it comes to these little guys....

These are used mainly for the little melters you see around, like little lighthouses, barns, and I have even seen bird melters. You know the ones with a little cup on top. Then a little hole or slot somewhere near the bottom where you slide in these little candles.

Don't contaminate your soy candle pleasure

Drop a preferably soy melt in the cup and let it melt away all the pleasures of your day. Excuse me, now why would anyone want to contaminate the sweet aroma of your soy melt with the petroleum smell of a cheap candle like a cheap tea light from you know where.

You can get 12 packs of scented soy tea light candles for under $10, I know, not as good a price as the cheapies, but I think you and your families health is worth it. And, let's not forget the pets.

Now, let's get really crazy

Aromatherapy also uses little deffusers, with a little plate, they use to warm the essential oil to fill a room. And what is heating this expensive essential oil or fragrance oil. That's right, a 4 cent tea candle. It just makes me want to scream, what are you thinking. Sorry, for that, I'm settling now.

The person using this exotic essential oil to get rid of a migraine, not knowing it's probably that little candle that's really giving her the migraine in the first place.

It's easy to make you own little soy tea light candles, if you have some of those cheap tea lights around, dump them and save the cup. Hopefully, it has a safe wick with a stem, pull it out of the wax, they come out really easy.

The fire up a nice scented soy candle, votive, jar, whichever you happen to have around. Burn the candle till you have a nice little pool and pour away.

One word to the wise from some one, who has been there, done that. Spread out plenty of newspaper, before attempting this.

My advise

Stick with a soy tea light candle, I have even seen beeswax tea lights. So there is no excuse, and I think you ARE worth it.

Your website is incredible!!!! I learned much. I chuckled when you stated to not expect your "first pour" to be perfect.

LOL My first pour was last week and was mediocre. Try try again. Right?

Thanks, Linda
