Welcome to Great South Bay Candles. Our eco friendly scented soy candles are made using 100% soy wax, cotton wicks and premium fragrances derived from essential oils. WHY SOY? Burning a soy candle is a healthier alternative than burning paraffin wax candles. Soy wax is made from soy beans a natural renewable source grown by American Farmer's. They burn cleaner and don't omit carcinogenic's into the air unlike paraffin wax. They are biodegradable and easy to clean up with little soap and water. Once you burn a soy candle you will never want to burn another paraffin wax candle again.
