Since March 13 — the last day our kids were in a classroom and life felt somewhat normal — moms have been burning the candle at both ends, so to speak.
We need a break! Over the years, I've learned that if I take just a little bit of time each day to myself, I have more to give to my family. It can be as simple as enjoying a cup of tea or going for a 15-minute walk by myself. My top choice: a hot bath with a glass of wine and a scented candle filling the room with my favorite fragrances!
I've long preferred soy candles to standard paraffin candles. Soy candles burn longer and cleaner than paraffin candles. They produce 90% less soot than paraffin, so they won't stain your walls, a lesson I learned many moons ago when I discovered a black streak on my bedroom wall from burning a paraffin candle on my nightstand.
Plus, soy is a sustainable, renewable resource. The United States is the #1 producer of soy, so when you purchase soy products, you're supporting American farmers too.
Soy Good Candle Co. is a local mom-owned company offering all-natural soy candles in dozens of scents. Not only are the fragrances amazing, but they have fun names to match, such as:
- Day Drinkin' (Frozen Margarita) – Top layer: lime, orange, grapefruit, lemon. Middle layer: orange blossom. Bottom layer: mint, woody, spice.
- Adulting – Top layer: creamy caramel, coconut milk, fruity. Middle layer: coffee beans, cocoa powder, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Bottom layer: sweet vanilla
- Salty – Top Layer: Ozone, Mandarin. Middle Layer: Rose, Lily. Base: Amber, Powder, Hone.
- Bestie (Hate Everyone Except You) – Featured in the best-selling Baja Cactus Blossom fragrance.
Soy Good candles can burn for up to 50 hours, if they are properly cared for. To get the most out of your candle, allow your candle to burn all the way to the edge each time you burn it, especially the first time. Keep in mind that this could take a few hours so plan accordingly! Trim your wick before burning your candle every time you light it.
Soy Good candles are available in 9-ounce ($16) and 11-ounce ($19-$21) jars as well as 3-ounce wax melts ($7). For a limited time, the entire Summer Collection is available for a great price!
- Save 10% on a small Summer Collection Bundle (4): Summer Lovin', Beach Bum, Happy Camper, and Sunkissed for $57.60 (regularly $65)
- Save 15% on a large Summer Collection Bundle (6): All of the above PLUS Day Drinkin' and Double Scoop for $81.60 (regularly $96)
