this candle is made with 100% vegetable wax derived from soybeans. We choose soy because it is eco-friendly, a renewable source, American grown, and sustainable. Soy burns cleaner, cooler, and longer than paraffin based candles. We make our candle with a cotton wick and fine grade fragrances and essential oils. Our candle is contained in a reusable - recyclable glass jar. Scented with a balanced blend of Lavender, Sage, Peppermint, and Star Anise intended to calm the mind and invigorate the soul. Approximate burn time: 40-60 hours.
