About Books on Candles

Soy Wax

One of the greatest advantages of our soy candles is that they do not contain toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. No petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles and no CO2 released to the atmosphere. Furthermore, soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. Since our candles are made out of soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills easier to clean (water soluble).

Wicks

Our candle wicks consist of flat cotton braided with paper strands, giving it a rigid structure without the need of a supporting core. The wicks are coated with vegetable wax, making them “all natural wicks”. The paper material in our wicks provide a controlled curling which produces much less soot and smoke compared to paper cored wicks.

Fragrance

Our scents are our own interpretation of the books and might not be what you’re expecting based on the title of the candle. We have created sample size candles (2oz) so you can try it before purchasing a full size candle.

Color

We love color; but rather than choosing one, we decided from the beginning to choose them all. White is, after all, the combination of all colors in the spectrum. Symbolically, white is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity; it has an infinitely positive connotation that pervades art and literature. Colors abound and each one is beautiful in its own right, but we’ve chosen to focus in what matters most—the fragrance and the poetry of the literary moment we are attempting to capture for you.
