Soy wax: 100% vegetable wax, biodegradable and vegan. It is very easy to handle and cast. It perfectly restores the fragrance in the room. It is an ecological solution for your health and your home.
Dyes: To color your candle or create patterns, use shavings of chalk in the color of your choice. These shavings can be easily obtained by sharpening the chalk with a pencil sharpener.
