Wax and Fire Co. was created out of a passion for scents that are unique, beautiful and convey feelings of peace, calm, love, joy and nostalgia.
Nothing really compares to the magic of lighting a candle, watching it burn and enjoying the feeling of warmth and serenity it brings to a room.
We believe strongly in using only clean burning soy wax, lead free cotton wicks and high quality, phthalate free scents, including some essential oils. We also proudly create a Zero Waste product, using only reusable glass vessels for our candles which not only keeps our landfills free of garbage but also enhances your space.
About Soy Wax
We use a wax that is 100% Soy — not blended with anything else. Soy wax burns clean, is from a renewable resource and actually burns 50% longer than paraffin wax.
Most commercial candles are made of paraffin wax, a bi product of the petroleum industry, which creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned (both are known carcinogens). Soot from paraffin candles also contains many of the same toxins found in diesel fuel. Not something we want to burn in our homes.
Other toxic chemicals that may be present in the paraffin mixture and released through burning include: Acetone, Trichlorofluoromethane, Carbon Disulfide, 2-Butanone, Trichloroethane, Trichloroethene, Carbon Tetrachloride, Tetrachloroethene, Chlorobenzene, Ethylbenzene, Styrene, Xylene, Phenol, Cresol, Cyclopentene. Some of the toxins are found in other products such as paint, lacquer and varnish removers — that’s potent and powerful stuff!
About Our Scents
When we decided to make candles, we set out to make the best and most enjoyable candle possible for our customers — this to us means a fragrance that fills the room without being toxic or causing headaches like many cheap commercial fragrances do.
We love scents, so we choose the healthiest and best quality scents which are Phthalate Free. Phthalates are endocrine disruptors and have been linked to early puberty in girls and reduced sperm count in men. They also cause headaches — a common complaint with commercial fragrance. We also use therapeutic grade essential oils to create many of our blends.
Our Wellness candles are made with 100% essential oils and give off a very delicate scent.
