Can To Candle is a small batch candle company based just outside Edinburgh, in the pretty Midlothian countryside. Each candle is hand poured and packaged in our workshop, using only 100% natural soy wax, cotton-core wicks and fine fragrance oil to ensure a clean and healthy burn.
We use soy wax instead of paraffin wax because it burns more slowly and more cleanly with less sooting, giving you a longer lasting product to enjoy. Soy candles burn for up to 20% longer than candles using the more common paraffin wax so are much more cost effective. As a result of our candles producing less soot they are more environmentally friendly as well, which is another benefit of buying our soy wax candles.
SCENT + SPACE
Because we use natural soy wax, our candles will not have the same scent throw as paraffin candles. Soy wax candles produce simple, subtle fragrances which are not overwhelming and can be used daily. Our candles fill a medium sized room nicely. For larger rooms, rooms with high ceilings and open plan spaces we recommend buying 2 candles. We have found that placing your candle on a lower surface ( coffee table or side table height – but safely out of reach of children or pets) will help with scent throw – heat rises, as does the scent with it, so the lower your candle is, the more of the room it will fill with lovely fragrance.
