Who Needs Air Fresheners When You’ve Got Soy Delites?


My husband and I are certified candle connoisseurs. OK…maybe we’re not certified, but we have a thing for candles. Natural, nontoxic ones, that is. So when Soy Delites contacted me to send samples for my review, I couldn’t say no. And let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed.

Not all soy candles are created equal. Typically, they have to burn for a while before you really begin to smell the candle’s fragrance, and you can barely smell some of them at all. Not the case with Soy Delites. The fragrances were exceptionally potent, even before being burned. And even after the candles were extinguished, the beautiful fragrances stuck around for hours afterward. On top of that, the 9 oz. glasses used to contain them are beautiful. We’re thinking of using them to make our own soy candles to give away as gifts. And did I mention that these candles are handmade in Austin, TX? Every time I have to give someone a gift, I try to come up with great eco-friendly gifts they’ll actually use. Soy Delites are now on my list of go-to options.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of soy wax with natural fragrances
  • Handmade in Austin, TX

Price: $6-12 for single candles, $20-21 for sets of 2 candles

    Amazing how we lit the candle in one room and smelled the sweetness throughout the whole house. I’m Jennae’s husband, by the way.

    I wish there was a way to know what they would smell like before I order. Even so, I have been looking for candles that will help with the old house smell in our new home and none have worked. These are by far the most inexpensive option I have seen. I am definitely going to order from them! Thanks Jennae!
