Holiday Gift Guide: SOI Candle Company- Review (And a Giveaway)

If you love great long burning candles, that have a true scent. I have found a great place that has some wonderful candles. The SOI Candle Company. Here is a little information about the SOI Candle company (from the website)

The SOI Company was founded with the idea of creating a healthier environment in your home through beautifully crafted, all-natural soy products.   

Along with our exceptional line of candles, the SOI Company offers an array of other unique candle accessories, gifts and spa accessories, giving you additional gift choices for those special family members and friends. 

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, our candles burn about 140 hours (about 40% longer than wax candles), are soot-free and do not emit any harmful toxins (like Benzene) into your home. Unlike wax, soy oil burns coolly at 106ยบ into a reflective pool of soy that always remains warm to the touch and will not burn little hands.   

My Review: 
Scents are so important. You may not notice that  a scents play such an important role. Have you ever smelled something, and it brings you back to your childhood, all of a sudden for a moment you are 8 years old again.  This is especially true for me during the holidays. Scents just make the house feel more festive.  I love to burn candles in the house, it just makes the house feel more homey to me.

I was able to review a Spiced Cider candle- (Description from the site) Hot apple cider with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, & clove. 16 oz. Jar Candles. Burn time of 140 hours

The smell brings me right back to a time in my life where things were so much simpler. I am in high school, and working at an after school job. They would have a big container of hot apple cider for us all to enjoy each holiday season. The smell would filter through the office, and it was intoxicating. I would look forward to this each year.

The candle has a great smell, it is strong enough ( not too weak and not overpowering) and it has a natural smell. Not an artificial chemical smell that other candles  may have. The apple smell, smells like real apples, it is amazing! I have been burning the Spiced Cider candle in my kitchen and we are all enjoying the smell.

I was very impressed with the candle, the smell went all through the house, and the candle burned evenly.
I would recommend picking up some candles from SOI Candle company. You will get a great A+ candle.

If you are looking for a housewarming gift, or a teacher present. These long lasting great smelling candles are the perfect gift.

There are also some great Fundraising Opportunities With The SOI Company. If you have a school fundraiser, candles are a great option! You can only sell so much candy, and you won’t gain weight selling/buying candles.

SOI Company fundraisers offer:
  • No initial cost to your organization
  • Works for any size group
  • No fault responsibility for unsold inventory

With the holidays right around the corner remember candles make a great gift. And The SOI Candle company has such a great selection of candles that would make great gifts for so many people on your holiday list. They also have tins candles, votives, candle accessories and more.   I will have to look into picking up some for my family, my father loves candles (yes my dad) he has quite the collection. I am sure he would appreciate a great candle like this.
