SOY CANDLES are beautifully scented candles that double as a healing skin balm. Set in attractive glass or tin containers, the heavenly scented candles have resulted in a ‘green friendly’ absolutely natural product with more than just ambient appeal. Soy is a longer burning alternative to standard wax that excludes paraffin oil and harmful chemicals. As a by-product of soybean agriculture it also has renewable and green-friendly qualities. In a bid to find the perfect soy wax our South African suppliers engaged their extended family business in the U.S and set out to source soy farmers with integrity. This means using crops without genetically modified soy or artificial additives. Countless research led them to a highly successful product using pure aromatherapy essential oils, top quality soy oil and natural wicks. While burning, the softened soy wax becomes smooth and creamy and can be applied to the skin to deeply moisturize and heal a number of skin conditions and irritations. Soy has high concentrations of Vitamin C and Lecithin making it the perfect healing balm which is easily absorbed by the skin without any waxy residue. Besides being deeply moisturizing the therapeutic benefits include easing dry skin and lips, cracked heals, cracked cuticles, treating psoriasis, eczema, minor abrasions and healing scars. It can be used as a massage oil and body lotion. Soylite Candles are manufactured in South Africa using local essential oils and packaging materials. They are devoid of any synthetic additives; do not include genetically modified soy crops or chemicals to influence the burning time. Testimonials lauding the benefits of this warming oil even extend to animals. The owner of a dog named Teddy used the warmed soy oil to heal the dogs cracked paws. Soylite candles are an excellent holding medium for essential oils and emit a far reaching scent. Candles are available in a number of scented combinations like: Rejuvenation containing lemongrass, lavender and lime; Harmony containing Rose, Geranium and Jasmine; others are designed to bring tranquility or enhance sensuality and some are designed to repel insects.
