The Vanilla & Spice scented candle uses pure soy wax and cotton wicks to create an even, clean, and safe burn for up to 80 hours. This decadent vanilla soy candle fragrance is derived from opulent vanilla with a smooth heart of caramelised marshmallow followed by a cut through of cinnamon spice for the ultimate perfume indulgence.
CandleXchange candles are made from mechanically pressed soy beans which are natural and organic. So you can be reassured there are no nasty chemicals or soot which is a win for your health and the planet.
