About Tomslitehouse: Tomslitehouse Soy Candles contain only the finest soy wax available, cotton wicks, organic fragrances and body safe coloring. Nothing else is added to these candles, that’s why we’re able to call our candles 100% Natural! To make things even better, each candle is hand poured! We don’t have candles on the shelf waiting to be ordered, they’re made as they’re ordered!

Promoting American Farmers: Help the farmers and everyone benefits. Soy beans are grown in American fields, and processed into soy wax in the US – nothing is done outside of the U.S.A.! This is one of the most important benefits of soy candles! In fact, after the soy beans are hulled, the waste goes into animal feed!

Paraffin wax is a byproduct of petroleum refining. It’s produced by separating the wax out of crude oil. Paraffin wax is made from a non-renewable resource.

Soy wax, on the other hand, is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. Our hand-poured soy candles contain no beeswax or animal products, making them vegetarian/vegan-friendly. Using 100% soy wax in our natural soy candles is just one way we can help reduce American dependence on foreign oil and help support American farmers.

The One Green Planet Verdict: We loved warming our homes with the smells from these beautiful candles!

The 13 oz. Status Jar Candles are the perfect size to give as a gift.  This size burns for a minimum of 110 hours.  The 16 oz. Frosted Apothecary Jar candles are a great addition to any bookshelf or mantel.  We love that these jar candles are refillable.  You can have them refilled up to three times.  Just mail the jar back to Tomslitehouse and they will refill it at a discounted price!

Looking for something more petite? They carry tealights as well.  Each one burns for a minimum of six hours.  Make your dining table more festive by placing a few tealights in a nice bowl of water.  With the lights dimmed and the tealights lit, it will be sure to make any dinner a little more romantic.

Our favorite treasure from Tomslitehouse are the tarts.  Add a tart to any candle warmer and be prepared for your home to smell amazing.  These tarts are small weighing in at 4 oz., but they can emit fragrance for up to a month.

We love that there are so many fragrances you can try.  We loved the Pumpkin Pickin’ and Frasier Fir fragrances.  For the holidays, we highly recommend the Frasier Fir tarts! This warmed scent made our home smell like the holiday season.

We appreciate that these candles are not only beautiful smelling, but that they are clean burning and free of hazardous chemicals.  We also love how much more fragrant these candles are compared to regular paraffin candles.  If you are looking for a gift to give this holiday season, consider giving the gift of soy candles!
