Soy wax is made from the soybean plant. Since soy is grown right here in America, our product provides income to support American farmers. From the soy bean plant, the soy beans themselves are harvested. A bushel of soy beans (approx. 60lbs.) are crushed and pressed, seperating the soy meal and the oil. From each bushel, 49lbs. of soy meal and 11lbs. of oil are produced. The soy meal is processed into animal feed and food for humans. The oil goes through a process called partial hydrogenation, turning it into a soft wax.
A lot of care and attention to detail is taken with each and every candle poured. Prior to the pouring process, each jar is hand-painted with glass paint that is dishwasher safe so people are encouraged to re-use the jars!
