(Christal Clear Soaps 100% Soy Wax Candles with wooden wicks.)


As a young girl, I would make candles with my grandmother for Christmas gifts. We would save milk cartons and small boxes to use as our molds, place our wicks in and fill the container with ice, then pour the colored wax over the ice, once the cardboard is peeled away, the water is allowed to drain away creating a textured candle.



(Trim wick to 1/4" before lighting each time.)




Years have gone by since I have made these, but my memories are still fresh in my mind and heart, calling upon them to help me create these candles for my small business.


I have selected 100% soy wax as my base and wooden wicks, together these two are combined and hand poured into blue mercury glass votives to create my signature massage candle.





Lower melting point and cleaner burning

( All natural soy candle)


Vegan-friendly, soy wax has a low melting point of around 134 °F making it ideal for containers burning longer than paraffin candles, and much cleaner.

I do still love beeswax candles and am fond of the natural sweet honey fragrance that unrefined bee wax gives. It also is the cleanest burning candle.


(Christal Clear Soaps Candles are designed with personal massage use in mind. )

Just light the candle and let it burn so there is a decent amount of melted wax on top (about 20 minutes), blow the flame out, and allow the wax to cool slightly before adding a bit of liquid wax to the palms of your hands and applying it as a body oil, paying special attention to the drier and rough areas like feet, hands, knees, and elbows.

Fragrance-free these candles are ideal for topical use. The melted wax does tend to pick up a bit of a warm-smokey fragrance as the wooden wick burns, the fragrance does not last long on the skin, so no need to worry about smelling of pungent campfire smoke.






(Soy wax foot bath)




In my journey of learning about my skin, soy wax was something that would draw me in time after time. Knowing a few people with allergies to honey and bee products has encouraged me to venture out to new waxes like calendula and soy.


Experimenting with new waxes has helped give me a newfound love for waxes. Focusing on the theme of "less is more" my items are made with sensitive skin in mind. Soy wax is great as a topical for moisturizing skin without leaving it greasy, making it a perfect ingredient for those with common skin issues, or allergies to other waxes, as it is a great alternative to other waxes out there.

It is ideal for those with hyperpigmentation and discoloration, and dark spots of the skin as it helps to even the skin tone, with its melanin inhibiting properties.

Skin benefits of soy wax


Soy wax can help promote the right estrogen and collagen levels, helping keep your skin looking and feeling plump and more elastic.




Collagen helps to keep your pores clear and smooth out lines, reducing redness and calming irritated skin.




Soy is known for having antioxidant properties that help brighten your skin to give you more of a radiant complexion.




Another benefit of adding soy wax to your daily routine is its ability to protect against sun damage and minimize the appearance of scars and sun damage.




Naturally rich in vitamin E, soy wax gives your skin a healthier glowing appearance. Lecithin is a substance found in soy wax that is high in fatty acids, that help hydrate skin and help it to repair itself.





It works well in both summer and winter, as your skin absorbs the liquid easily, leaving you with smooth, moisturized skin all day long!

Natural candles for your home




100% soy wax candles were an easy choice when it came time for me to pick the medium used, adding the wooden wick for a bit of ambiance with its flickering light, gentle crackling noise, and subtle warm fragrance it lends to the wax as it burns to make them a perfect pairing for a topical massage candle.




When it comes to candles many of us have them in our homes and have never thought about the ingredients they contain, many are filled with toxic fragrances and cheap waxes.




I encourage you to look at the ingredients of the candles you have in your home and to take the plunge into cleaner candles.




If you have never had the pleasure of using a massage candle I recommend you give one a try. They are a great way to take some time to slow down during the day and give yourself some self-care in a new way!

(Self-care time with soy wax candles)





 

  • Caution, not all soy wax candles are safe for topical use, as most are made with blends of other oils and waxes that are not safe for your skin, and can have fragrance oils and essential oils that are not topical grade and should not be applied to the skin. Only use topical grade massage candles that are formulated with your skin in mind, and use as the directions say. Never pour wax or hot liquid on your body or another without consent and test out on a small patch of skin before beginning to apply further along to the body.



*Burn within sight. Keep away from flammable objects. Keep away from children and pets.*

  • Glass containers get HOT, always place them on heat resistant surface while burning.


  • * When using as a massage oil always let wax and glass cool to the touch, test before handling.




Burning Instructions:

Trim wick to 1/4" before lighting each time. Keep the candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings, Only burn the candle on a level, fire-resistant surface. Do not burn a candle for more than four hours at a time. Stop use when only 1/4" of wax remains.



== DIRECTIONS TO USE ==

Adults only! Not for Children!

Simply light the candle and allow it to burn until the oil is evenly melted across the top of the container (average 20 min) gently blow out the flame. Test melted wax temperature with a finger before pouring. Drizzle a very small amount of melted oil into your hand, and apply it to the skin for a sensual massage. The oil will melt just above body temperature, it should feel warm, not too hot. Use very sparingly as a little goes a long way.
