"So Basic" Soy Candle
SO BASIC - A predictable blend of pumpkin spice lattes and plaid scarves.
8oz, 50-60 hour burn time
A hand-poured soy & coconut wax candle made just down the road in Gananoque by dedicated entrepreneur Emily at Arrow It Forward.
Soy wax is derived from a vegetable (soybeans), a renewable resource, is biodegradable and cleans up very easily with soap and water. Another attractive characteristic is that it has a lower melting point than other waxes, thus lasting longer.
These candles contain only four ingredients: 100% soy wax, coconut wax, natural cotton wicks, and premium quality fragrance oils. Nothing else! No dyes, UV inhibitors or chemical additives. Even the packaging is recyclable and the jar is totally reusable!
At the Green Gecko we love partnering with forward thinking companies. Emily named her candle company Arrow It Forward as a nod to both the "pay it forward" concept and the well-known quote that "an arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it's going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming."
But it's not all serious stuff, Emily says she has so much fun coming up with names and descriptions and seeing people get a chuckle out of her sarcastic sense of humour. So grab a candle and get lit.
