Soy Candle - Fundraising Can Smell Good!

EcoLabel Fundraising
is officially rolling out our line in early November, but we wanted to give you a sneak peak of some of the items now!

Each day we will list one new product we will carry. Of course, our line will be much larger than what we feature here, but this will give you a good "feel" for what we will offer.


Today, we are featuring a soy candle ($23.50, 3" x 3.5" glass pillar) from Bazil Essentials.

Straight from their website here's what they say about their candles:

"Awaken your senses and enjoy the fresh citrus-like scent of lemongrass. Leaves you feeling alive and rejuvenated. 11 oz.

Our soy candles are made with 100% pure soy wax, and scented with only natural essential oils. These 3" x 3.5" glass pillars are lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a natural recycled kraft paper box. Made with a Cotton Wick. Burn time is approximately 60 hours.

All Natural Soy Candles are a wonderful alternative to Paraffin Wax Candles (a petroleum based by-product of refined gasoline). Studies have shown that carcinogens released by paraffin wax candles are as dangerous as second hand cigarette smoke and can cause harm to the heart, lungs, circulatory system, and nervous system. This is not only a health concern, but also an environmental concern. Paraffin wax candles release carcinogens into the atmosphere when burned similar to that of gasoline being burned by an automobile.


* Soy wax is a very clean burning wax, no toxins and an incredibly small amount of soot

* Soy wax burns cooler and longer than petroleum wax, meaning you get more candle for the money

* Biodegradable and water soluble

* Non-toxic...safe for children and pets

* Easily cleaned up with soap and water

* Environmentally sensitive

* A Renewable resource that supports economic growth and US Farmers, AND lessens our dependence on foreign oil

* We use only natural essential oils to scent our candles. No yucky chemical fragrance oils or chemical dyes!! Why would you want to add chemicals to these beautiful, healthy natural candles?"

Pretty fabulous, huh?
