Welcome Home In 2017, WoodLit Candles started with a goal of bringing a healthier candle alternative Healthier than the big brand companies AND at an affordable price. After finding out how unhealthy paraffin and petroleum wax candles made with synthetic fragrances are, we decided to create a more health conscious, all-natural candle for the world to enjoy. Our products are locally hand-poured in NC, made from 100% all-natural soy wax, essential oils, natural fragrance oils and a wooden wick. That means no additives, chemicals, or dyes all without a traditional cotton wick. Words of Wisdom Just like us, soy candles have a memory. It remembers how much of the surface melted during each burn. To avoid tunneling in the center of the candle, allow the complete surface of the wax to melt. Doing this and remembering to keep your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch, will allow you to get the fullest life and most enjoyment out of your candle.
