Simply Celeste’s flagship product, 100% Soy Wax Candles, are the healthy alternative to traditional paraffin wax candles; a plus for a healthy lifestyle. At Simply Celeste we strive to provide our customers with the best product possible. Our candles are made from all natural, Eco-friendly, and sustain-ably grown, all-American farmed soy.  And, our candles are highly scented with only phthalate-free fragrance oils.

Wicks in use

We use cotton braided wicks to encourage a slow and consistent burn.

At Simply Celeste, we use only the best products to assure you are getting a high quality candle that is clean to burn and long lasting. The benefits of Soy Candles are significant and can increase a healthy lifestyle. Our soy wax is a vegetable wax derived from soybeans; a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. After soybeans are harvested they are cleaned, hulled, cracked, and rolled into flecks. Oil is then extracted from these flecks and hydrogenated. In the process, unsaturated fatty acids present in the oil are saturated, thereby dramatically altering the oil’s melting point. It then solidifies at room temperature.

Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. Our soy wax burns with zero petrol soot, creating petrol soot free candles. Paraffin candles burn with petrol-soot and often create a significant amount of black soot that collects on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. Our soy candles may accumulate some blackness on the jar, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won’t release toxins into the air as they burn.

Controlled quality

All our candles are hand poured in small batches allowing us to control the quality of our craftsmanship. Each type of candle goes through ongoing tests to assure we get even burn, minimal soot, long scent throw, and long burn life. We believe that a quality candle doesn’t mean expensive, it means well made.

A true candle craftsman knows how to match the wick size, fragrance, and candle size to produce a great burning candle.
