Who do you think of when you feel a mountain breeze in your hair, a diet coke in your hand and you are one of the foremost fiction writers today? You get a wax melt that reminds you of Herself. I make no bones that I'm a real fan of Dr. Gabaldon and I felt a tribute to her was appropriate. Try out this container candle, you won't be disappointed in the scent and you won't be disappointed in Diana's books. Our melts have approximately 2oz of highly scented wax in a plastic clam shell with 6 cubes each. Soy wax is derived from a vegetables, (soy beans), while it's counter partner, paraffin wax is derived from petroleum (a refined a gasoline product). Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource. Soy wax is biodegradable and cleans up with plain old soap and water. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax and because of this, soy candles will burn slower or longer than paraffin candles. Soy wax burns with zero petro soot, creating petro soot free candles. Paraffin candles burn with petro-soot. Buying soybean products creates important economic growth for the agricultural sector of the US economy. Soy candles are simply better for you, your family, and your environment. Some imperfections are normal for soy candles and proof you have a 100% soy candle, > frosting > pits and surface imperfections > low melting point.
