Greetings! I haven’t posted in a while because most of the responses I get are junky spam trying to link up for more spam connections. The power of the Internet! Yikes! Please feel free to comment on our blog, especially if you are a real person and not an automatic spam machine! Thanks!
Anyway, I am here again to let you know that we sent some sample candles to an organization called CANDLE FIND. They review all sorts of candles from large companies to small home based businesses like ours. They agreed to review our products, and just now they posted their official review! Check out their totally unbiased comments here:
They seemed to like the fact that we do not try and get our customers to choose a scent based on a catchy name; rather, we are straightforward in our scents to help the customer understand what they are getting. If you love pineapples, we have PINEAPPLE scented soy candles. If you love hyacinths, we have HYACINTH scented soy candles. You will know what to expect.
Also, our candles add a calm and pleasant feeling to a room without overpowering you with overly strong scents. Our candles are subtle and clean smelling. Because our candles are made from high quality soy wax, and most of our scents are considered body-safe, burning our candles will not affect those with tender respiratory systems or trigger allergy symptoms. On our website, in our list of custom scents available, every scent is marked to show which are the absolute safest to order for those individuals who have concerns with allergies.
Now that summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner, we hope you will browse our site and find just the right candle for yourself and for gift giving. At Twilight Candle Shop, you can truly “Create Your Own Candle” with a variety of container styles and an extensive list of safe scents to customize your soy candle.
Thanks for checking out our products, and we look forward to hand-pouring your custom candles soon!
We have three new candles that we poured into small pots made by The Melted Potter (aka Shannon Barr). These pots have beautiful glazes with perfect colors for fall. The scents we chose for Shannon’s vases are Pumpkin Spice, Patchouli, and Cinnamon. They are available to purchase on our website:
We look forward to more of Shannon’s creations in the future!
Thanks for choosing our 100% soy candles as gifts for your friends and family during the coming fall and winter season! – Joanne
Back in the early 1970s was the first time I tried making candles. No soy wax then! I bought a big chunk of white paraffin and chopped it up into smaller chunks with an ice pick. I melted these pieces in tin cans sitting in a large aluminum tray set up as a sort of double boiler arrangement. I made different colors in the tin cans and poured layers of colored melted wax into milk cartons I had saved up. It was always a surprise when I peeled off the carton after the wax had cooled to see if the candle came out beautiful or not so great. These candles were very pretty when burning as the flame glowed through the layers of colored wax. I would not have predicted that 40 years later I would again be pouring candles under the name of Twilight Candle Shop and selling them on the Internet! (the Inter..what???) Using soy wax is much easier to deal with and much healthier to burn. Progress indeed! www.twilightcandleshop.com
Hello Customers! Since we are now residents of West Virginia, we have added new jars to our product line to reflect a country style of living. We now will pour soy candles for you in either 12 ounce or 8 ounce mason canning jars with nice one-piece screw top lids. We hope you will love our new jars. Order them online at http://www.twilightcandleshop.com/create-a-candle.html
Thanks! – Joanne
I came across this article and was pleased to see how many reasons they came up with for why soy candles are simply the best choice. Take a look and see why it is not just a fad. I am surprised when we are at craft shows that many people still have not heard of soy wax. Check out the many reasons to use soy instead of paraffin:
When you are convinced, then please go to our website and pick out your candles! We use only 100% soy wax in all our products. You can’t go wrong when you get your candles from Twilight Candle Shop:
Thank you! – Joanne
I had the pleasure of meeting this artist recently and would like to pass on this recommendation to anyone who loves nature. Rhea Knight takes her own photographs of scenes in West Virginia and out in the American West. She uses these photos to paint the scenes in fine detail. The result is a very realistic picture that almost looks like a photograph, yet it captures the beauty and feeling of the scene much better than a photograph ever could. I think her work is truly unique and very impressive. She sells prints of all her originals. Check out her website here: http://www.yessy.com/rheaknight/gallery.html?r=308983773 I’d love to hear your comments on this blog! Thanks – Joanne
If you like fashion, you should definitely check out the work of Joanna Baker! She is breaking into the “scene” after coming all the way from Damascus, Maryland, to New York City. She has a wealth of natural talent and has been further trained at Parsons. I’m just trying to help spread the word. Take a look: http://www.joanna-baker.blogspot.com/
Check out our page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/twilightcandleshop where I am trying to get a discussion going about the differences between soy wax and paraffin. There are a lot of opinions out there — I have a few of my own! I would like to hear from more people who have studied this. You will see a couple links on our website http://www.twilightcandleshop.com/links.html to scientific research on the topic. I want to hear from you if you are aware of more studies that have been done! Thanks for your input. -Joanne
