About a year ago, my wife fell ill. While recuperating, she had candles burning in our bedroom. Well, they were regular parafin candles and because of the black soot and smoke these candles produced, I had to repaint the bedroom! Needless to say, I looked into different candles and found out about soy candles. I started making them - so she could have the pleasure of the candles and I wouldn't have to keep repainting our walls! Now I'd love to share these wonderful candles with everyone....just try one - you'll definitely be back for more!
