This 8 oz. mason jar fir needle soy candle is handcrafted at Bedrock Tree Farm in Wakefield, Rhode Island using fir needles harvested from their own trees. Each candle contains certified pure essential oils, phthalate free fragrance oils, and dyes that are formulated with eco-friendly ingredients. All wicks are cotton.
The candles are made from 100% soy wax derived from soybeans grown in the USA. There is an enormous amount of information about the differences in a soy wax candle and a paraffin candle. Although soy is superior to paraffin in many ways, the clearest, most undeniable difference is that soy wax is a renewable source, making it the clear choice over paraffin for that reason alone.
Bedrock Tree Farm is one of our farm partners. It is so rocky that it’s difficult to tell if there are more rocks or trees on their farm!
You will not regret buying this candle… in fact, you may regret not buying more! It pairs wonderfully with one of our fieldstone coasters, or smaller Food Slabs as a base upon which to burn the candle – and makes a charming gift set!
A note about soy wax ‘frosting’ or ‘blooming’ –
Pure soy wax candles can sometimes ‘frost’ or ‘bloom’ when exposed to cold winter temperatures. This is not a flaw of the candle, it is a natural characteristic of pure soy wax and is purely visual. It may cause the candle to look dry, but will not affect the scent or the burn of the candle. We have not heard about this happening yet, but are including a word of caution just in case!
