GIVEAWAY and Review: SOI Co. Luxury Soy Candle

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I had a chance to review a gardenia scented SOI Luxury Candle from The SOI Co. I was immediately impressed by the box it came in, this makes a great gift impression right from the start. Then when you open it up, you notice a very light pleasing scent in a nice thick glass holder. The wax is such a beautifully pure white that it looks so clean. The size of the candle I was sent is a 13.5 oz Luxe Highball, but it is also available in a 16oz Jar Candle and a 3oz. votive. My candle has a burn time of 90 hours, so I will be using this for a looooooonnnng time!


Then I lit my candle and the scent was stronger, but not overpowering. I was reading on the box that this was a candle and skin moisturizer. Hmmmmmmm......that's interesting. I needed to read more information and see exactly how this product was intended to be used and what that exactly means. I read that it burns at 106 degrees and is cool the the touch (the wax, not the flame - don't touch the flame!) So, I figured I owed it to my readers to stick my finger in the wax and verify that this was indeed true. It is!!! Soy wax burns clean, so there is no soot in it and it stays white, so you can use the melted wax to rub on your skin. So, I decided I needed to try it out and rubbed it on my perpetually dry elbows and it made them wonderfully smooth. So, I am pretty happy with how these claims turned out, impressed in fact!

Product Description from SOI Candles

SOI Candles are hand-poured using 100%, FDA approved, kosher soy oil and burn cleaner than paraffin-based candles. Available in a variety of sizes and fragrances, our candles will burn about 140 hours (approximately 40% longer than wax candles), are soot-free and do not emit any harmful toxins (such as Benzene) into your home. Unlike wax, soy oil burns coolly at 106º into a reflective pool of soy that always remains warm to the touch and will not burn little hands. As SOI candles are created from natural soy, the melt pool can also be used as a skin moisturizer that can be massaged into dry or irritated areas. It can also be applied as a soothing remedy to sunburns, eczema, psoriasis, and poison oak. SOI Candles are triple-fragranced in a variety of delightful aromas to complement the décor and emphasize the ambience of your home. Never overpowering, one SOI Candle can scent most areas with a wonderful aroma.
