our products contain goat milk.
use Tallow or Lard in your soap?

to make perfectly good soap, we have made a personal decision not to use them

kept high & dry, out of water between uses in order to extend the life of

lye is complete, there is no lye left in the fully saponified soap. No Lye, No
Soap, No Lie.
Soy Candles contain lead wicks?
No. All our candles
are made with lead-free, eco-friendly, cotton wicks.
there white spots on my candles?
Soy wax is
very finicky to work with. It tends to mottle or frost if the air is too humid,
if poured a little too warm, or just happens with some fragrance oils. We do
not use additives to prevent this from happening. It is especially noticeable
in colored candles, which is why many soy candles are made without color. The
white mottling/frosting does not affect the burning performance of the soy
can burn soot-free. Any time there
is a flame and a fuel source (the wax), there will be some soot. However, soy
wax does tend to burn cleaner than paraffin wax. We do test all of our candles
for the proper wick size which helps to maximize candle-burning performance.
test your products on animals?
are cruelty-free. They are not tested on animals, only on willing family
members and friends who enjoy the new samples.
