Welcome to Vance Family Soy Candles! Thank you for your interest in buying sustainable and American made!
Vance Family Soy Candles began as a mission to provide the perfect, sustainable candle.
We wanted a candle that was naturally scented (not only should it be natural anyway, but synthetic fragrance gives me, Amy, asthma attacks and could kill me! Even the FDA statements say that synthetic fragrance - which is in most candles, including "natural" ones- is TOXIC and has been shown to cause respiratory failure, headaches, and cancer), and made with American made, sustainable materials. We are proud to say we have fulfilled our mission! No Synthetic Fragrance is EVER used in our candles, our wicks are low-smoke cotton, our containers are made in the USA (our glass is recycled and we even offer handcrafted in the USA containers!) and our soy is GMO-FREE! We use pure essential oils and organic flavor oils (most of our natural, GMO-free, aromatherapy and edible grade oils are made in the USA - a few are sourced from their native lands) to create our amazing, hand crafted candles. Our labels are designed by an artist in Vancouver, WA and crafted on unbleached, Made in the USA, recycled paper. As if that weren't awesome enough, we always have, and always will, donate at least 10% of our profits to those in need. We thank you for purchasing a Vance Family Soy Candle and making the world a better place!
A few things to note about our candles-
* For best results, burn your candle at least 2 hours (or until the oil is melted across the top of the candle) before blowing out.
* You can throw any left over "wax" in your compost pile! Try and say that about other candles!
* When your candle is through, just clean your glass with soap and warm water and you are left with a wonderful drinking glass or catch-all!
* Due to the 100% natural, non-synthetic scents in our candles, some scents may not be as intense of a smell as one has become accustomed. Please keep this in mind and understand that you, your family's, and the earth's health are worth the slightly less potent smells. :)
Our Candles are Hand-Crafted and tested to be the best. We hope that you will be very pleased with your choice and look forward to hearing how wonderful our candles make your home smell and how great you feel while burning them! If your favorite scent is not here, please contact us; we are always up for suggestions!
Sincerely, Amy Vance Owner/Candle Maker
