I use EcoSoya waxes in all my candles. Soy wax is both environmentally and socially responsible, as it is naturally-based and supports North American farmers. The EcoSoya waxes used in my candles are made with Pure Soybean oil and enhanced with selected botanical oils. EcoSoya waxes are all natural and biodegradable, and are manufactured meeting U.S. FDA and Kosher standards. These waxes are both environmentally friendly, and vegan conscious, as they contain NO pesticides and NO herbicides, NO petroleum, paraffin or beeswax products, NO toxic materials and NO Genetically Modified Material. Soy wax is considered GRAS under the U.S. Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Furthermore, my soy candle waxes are NOT subject to animal testing. I colour my candles with non-toxic dye, and use pure essential oils for aromatherapy, eliminating the need for synthetic fragrances. I use lead-free paper wicks, and I am in the process of switching entirely to hemp wick.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
I make all my candles by hand in small batches in my (smoke-free) home. The various pressed flora embedded in some of my candles have been organically grown in my home garden or sustainably wildcrafted in the surrounding area.

Additional Information
Buying handmade, naturally-based products is better for people, the environment and makes for great gift giving. The external effects of mass production are driving climate change, and poisoning our air, water and soil. While chain stores and global brands has transformed us from producers of culture to consumers. Buying handmade is critical to reconnecting to the local and human sources of our goods.

Buying through the Ottawa Valley Food Co-op (OVFC) is important to me. By making a monthly pick up, I not only save on gas driving around the county picking up food, I know where it comes from. Having a relationship with producers, close by, means that if I have a concern about a product I know where to go for answers. Local producers live in the community and pay taxes here. They are invested and that feels right. I also have a better chance at obtaining food and products that are more healthful and less likely to harm me and the place I live.

It just makes so much sense.
