Is there a Home Biz company that has Natural Candles?

I'm not looking to join, I have a business. But I am very very picky about what kind of candles I will bring in to my home, and in recent weeks I have been ridding my home of anything with parabins, lead or other harmful ingredients. That said, I love home parties and I LOVE candles and would love to do a candle party, even a book party, but I don't see a point in doing a party for products I won't use.

So I'm wondering if there are any natural candle home business companies out there...

  • Beware of the word natural. It is unregulated and utterly meaningless. It is fairly easy to make candles at home, with beeswax and other non toxic ingredients.

  • Agreed! I would try and find a way to make them at home. That's probably the best way to make sure they are natural ;o)

  • Mia Bella's as 2 others have said. I've been a distributor for over 3 years.

  • I will look in to MiaBella, but to be honest I have tried them a few times and wasn't happy with them. But what I mean by natural is Bees-wax, Soya or Palm Candles, which also use a lead free wick. And naturally derived fragrance oils rather than synthetic ones. I have horrid allergies to synthetic fragrance oils, but things such as lemon or rose oil are just fine for me.

  • Mia Bella's candles have lead free wicks but they do use fragrance oils(10%) rather than essential oils. It's my understanding that many people can have issues with either but the scents from the fragrance oils make a better scented candle.That also makes them low soot. The candles themselves are made from 100% renewable materials. I'm not sure that there is a candle out there that would be 100% natural(unless you made them yourself)

  • There are a number of candle companies out there that are all (100%) natural. I just haven't found one that does home parties. I absolutely hate "crafts" and if I have to make my own, I just won't use them. But the companies I usually buy from are soya based, with lead free wicks and no fragrance oils! Synthetic oils have been identified at VOC-emitters, which is just one more reason I won't use them.

    I'll keep looking!

  • I am with Gold Canyon Candles, not sure if you have heard of them or not. Our wax is a plant based wax, and our wax doesn't get hot. All of our candles,( except our tealights, votives and our 5oz candles) have 2 wicks which are safety wicks, so they burn evenly.
    We do carry some soy candles as well.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
