Care For Some Eco-Friendly Candles?

Organic product are getting really popular these days and they can be seen and bought everywhere. they are environment friendly and of course good for our health because absolutely no chemicals were used while making these products.

One of my favorite organic goodies which I love to send as gifts to my friends are candles. Organic candles? Yes. In fact last Christmas I received a gift from my cousin which is a set of soy candles!

The discovery of soy wax as the new alternative to paraffin wax made soybean the most promising natural wax source available. Soybean, being grown in most countries is now used and made as organic candles because they are biodegradable and does not contain any harmful chemicals unlike the old paraffin wax.

Caterpillars, the leading soy candle manufacturer, not only uses chemical free soybean wax, but also recycles packaging materials and even encourages other small businesses to do the same.They also offer wholesale soy candles to customers at low prices.

My cousin gave me a set of Roly Poly soy candle and I'm looking forward to have some of the other sets in the future!
