About the Good Earth Candle Company The barn at the Good Earth Candle Company in Rowley, MA. We put a lot thought into our candles at the Good Earth Candle Company. Each candle is poured by hand in small batches in our barn in the town of Rowley located on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Our entire candle making process is completely done by hand in small batches, beginning from blending through pouring to our exclusive temperature controlled curing to ensure the highest level of quality and consistency. Our natural, 100% pure soy candles are all infused with essential oils. Having soy as a base is a good thing because soy is a lot better for you and the world than paraffin wax, which comes from petroleum, coal or oil shale. The Benefits of Burning Soy Soy candles are affordable – Beeswax is also an alternative to paraffin wax, but it is very expensive. Soy wax is an alternative to paraffin wax and beeswax that is cost effective. Soy wax is made from renewable resources, and we only use 100-percent pure soy wax from soybean crops grown on farms in the USA. Soy wax is all-natural – Soy wax is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Burning soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. Soy candles last longer – Soy candles can last up to 50% longer than paraffin candles. Wax spills are easy to clean – Soy wax spills can easily be cleaned up with hot soapy water. Paraffin wax is difficult to remove from textiles or furniture. Soy candles produce less soot – Soy candles produce about 90% less soot that paraffin candles. Soot from paraffin candles is very unhealthy and will eventually coat your walls and furniture. Scented soy candles smell better – Soybean oil has a lower melting point than parafin wax, which translates into cooler burning candles and faster scent dispersion. The lower melting point of soy wax results in a larger size of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick. It is from this liquid wax pool that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere. It’s More Than Soy that Makes a Good Earth Candle Wholesome Soy isn’t the only thing that makes a Good Earth candle a natural and wholesome product. Our soy is not genetically modified and is cultivated without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Also, our candles contain no added dyes, chemicals or preservatives. We even think about the wicks. Good Earth candles use hand-spun, paper-core natural cotton wicks that are free from lead and zinc. Finally, our blown-glass jars are heat resistant and add an elegant sense of design to any room. When you purchase a candle from Good Earth, you can be assured that you are buying a quality, hand-made product. We’re glad you are visiting the website, and we hope you give us an opportunity to prove why our soy candles are so pleasing to have around. We do not use dyes or artificial chemicals to give our candles colors. We import our wicks from a traditional wick-maker in Germany and cut them to size ourselves.
