ABOUT THE CANDLES

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

All the small emergency candles (1/2 pint through 1 gallon) are made in metal paint cans.  All the large candles (2 gallons through 6 ½ gallons) are made in larger metal cans with convenient carrying handles.  All the cans are powder coated, which makes the outside of the can extremely resistant to any type of wear or damage.

Every candle has a sealed mini-Bic lighter inside it (except the ½ pint cans, which come with a sealed book of matches inside).  This ensures you will NEVER have to worry about finding a way to light your candle when you need it.  Also, I use a zinc core wick (no lead), which is secured to the bottom of the candle.  If you happen to have your candle stored in a hot environment and the wax melts inside the container, place the candle in the upright position in a cool area so it can re-harden back into its solid form.  Having the zinc core wick means the candle wick will not fall over. Instead, it will remain standing upright.

 

I USE SOY WAX FOR SEVERAL REASONS:

  1. It’s a 100% all natural product, made right here in the USA!

  2. Soy wax is not made with any crude oil products (like regular paraffin wax), so therefore it burns cleaner and longer-up to 50% longer than paraffin wax.

  3. Soy wax is 100% biodegradable.

  4. Soy wax easily cleans up with soap and warm water (if you spill any melted soy wax on your clothing, just wash it in warm water!)

  5. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax (it is safer if you spill any melted wax on your skin, it won’t burn like paraffin wax).

  6. Soy wax burns so clean it won’t bother people who are sensitive to pollutants in the air (my mother-in-law has emphysema and can’t have any paraffin wax candles burning near her.  She used one of my soy wax candles in the same room she was in, and it didn’t bother her one bit!).

 

I USE METAL CANS BECAUSE:

  1. They won’t break in shipping or with rough handling.

  2. The container can be re-used.

  3. The container can be sealed tight, allowing the soy candle to be kept indefinitely without being polluted by outside elements.

  4. When the container is full of wax, it is nearly indestructible and will survive almost anything!
