Handmade soap is not like store-bought soap for several reasons.
Made with a large portion of pure olive oil, it contains no artificial hardeners, sulfates (lather enhancers) or preservatives. Properly formulated, handmade soap is mild and conditioning to the skin.
Unlike commercially made soap, handmade soap retains its high glycerin content. Glycerin is a humectant, a natural by-product produced by the chemical change that creates soap.
Although great for your skin, glycerin's extremely water soluble. This means your soap will melt away quickly if left in a puddle of water. Your handmade soap will last for a long time, if you take some simple precautions:
Our soy wax candles are hand-poured, and carefully tested until they burn clean and slow. Simple candle care makes a huge difference in how well your candle performs, and how long it will last. There are just a few things you have to do, to ensure your candle burns like new, every-time.
Always let your container candle burn long enough so that the melted wax, or 'wax pool', touches all edges of the glass. If you've burned the candle for 4 hours, and the wax pool still doesn't reach, it will 'catch-up', and reach all edges of the glass by the second burn. This will ensure your candle burns evenly, and uses up all the wax, right down to the bottom of the candle.
