Not All Tealights Are Created Equal

Our customer reviews say it all but here are some of the reasons why our Soy Tealight Candles are so popular:

  • Natural soy wax ~ we only use 100% natural soy wax, an eco-friendly and sustainable resource that’s free of paraffin and petroleum.
  • Long burn time ~10 – 12 hours approximate burn time per candle. Our customers love how long they last compared with other tealights.
  • Clean burning ~ due to our use of natural soy wax, our candles will hardly emit any soot and related toxins.

Friendly reminder:

  • Please never leave a candle burning if you leave the house.
  • Keep away from pets, young children and flammable items.
