I love my candles, but lately anytime I seem to burn them my asthma flares up big time. However, I was out the other day and came across this soy candle called Village Candle Natural Home in the scent Pear & Anise. It smells very light and fruity and reminds me of walking through a pear orchard of some kind.
The main reason I got this soy candle was because it was made from 100% soy wax. Soy wax burns clean and doesn’t put polluting harmful smoke into the air of my home. I also got this candle because it was made with pure essential oils that are safe to breathe in when they are burned in a candle. The candle I have has a light fruity pear scent with a hint of soft floral. It isn’t a strong scent and it doesn’t make me sneeze at all which is really nice. The candle comes in a little frosty glass jar that hold about 2.25 ounces of soy candle wax. The wick is a simple cotton wick I believe.
When I go to the burn the candle I usually trim the top of the wick right off so the candle burns better. Then I light the wick with a lighter and let the candle burn. So far I have had the candle for about a week and have burned it every night for 2 to 3 hours at a time. The candle burns very well and for a very long time. Most soy candles burn down super fast, but this soy candle does not. The pear floral scent I was talking about that the candle gives off is very light and sweet and really helps lightly scent the rooms in your home which I really like. The glow from the candle is very peaceful and calm and not bright and flame like, like some other candles can be. However, you still want to make sure when you burn any candle that it is up away from pets, children, and anything flammable.
The Village Candle Natural Home in the scent Pear & Anise was very affordable for the quality and quantity I got. I would recommend this soy candle to anyone who loves candles and is having the same health problem I am when burning candles. I know I can burn these candles safely without causing my asthma to flare up because of strong fragrances and black smoke because this candle like I said burns clean. I do hope those of you who give this soy candle a try will like it as well.
