Did you know soy candles are not only more environmentally friendly than conventional, petroleum-based paraffin candles but they also last twice as long? I’ve been a huge soy candle fan for quite some time and I always have a blast discovering new brands of soy candles.
Soy Candles By Phebes has an extensive line of hand crafted soy candles and soy tarts that are made out of 100% soy wax. They are also phthalate-free, kosher and very affordable.
Each 8.5 oz. Soy Candle by Phebes is $13.05 (free shipping on orders over $25). They have over 90 scents to chooses from and each scent is unique and exquisite. If you go to their website and read the descriptions for each scent, you’re going to find yourself wanting all of them.
Here are a few really fun ones: Puppy Breath (creamy sweet florals, coconuts and vanilla), Jamaica Me Crazy (fresh, fruity, tropical), Fruit Loops (smells just like the cereal) and Butt Naked (I’ll let you look up the description on their website for yourself) *wink*
I was fortunate to sample some of these candles and let me just say, these are some of the most amazing, beautiful smelling candles on the planet. Here are some scents I had the pleasure of trying…
Vanilla Pear: It definitely smells like vanillia-y pear… or a peary vanilla. I love vanilla everything and this one definitely wooed my nostrils. It kind of smells like white chocolate and reminds me of a specific German sweet I grew up with… nostalgia.
Spa Bliss: This is one of their best sellers. It combines spearmint and eucalyptus with hints of corriander and vetiver. This candle will turn your bathroom into a sanctuary for relaxation. This would make an excellent housewarming gift.
Whiskers: At first, I thought if this candle smells anything like my furry, feline babies, this could could be strange. It turns out, this candle smells gorgeous! It’s vanilla-y with notes of pinion, patchouli and sandalwood. It has a beautiful exotic vibe. I would love to wear this scent as a perfume.
Red Currant Tart: This is one of their best selling scents and I can totally see why. It smells like wild cassis buds with hints of apple and a touch of gardenia. It’s the perfect combination of fruity and floral – It smells like Spring to me!
