LockStars Soy Candles

>

While at the Bean2Blog Event we were introduced to many soy products, but my favorite were the candles.  This is sad, and I can’t believe I am going to admit this, but I didn’t even know there was a such thing as soy candles.  I know, I know, I guess I have been under a rock.
Allen introduced us to Ron and Connie Locke, owners of LockStars Soy Candles, from Lonoke, AR.  They are a husband and wife team that has developed over 100 fragrances for these long burning joys since 2002.  They hand melt, pour, wick, and label every single candle.

This is the soywax before it is melted.  It is little flakes, that smell pretty good on their own.

No, this isn’t vegetable oil, it is the hot soywax before color or scent is added.

LockStars Soy Candles smell heavenly.  One of their most popular scents is named “Butt Naked,” but I feel in love with the Baby Powder, Fresh Linen, and Lemon Zest varieties.  Soywax candles burn 2-3 times longer than your ordinary petroleum-based paraffin candle and also don’t produce that black soot around the rim of the jar.  Don’t you just hate relighting a candle and getting that black stuff on your hand?!?!
The most important benefit of soywax candles is that they are made from soybeans, and who grows soybeans? AMERICAN FARMERS! I love a product that is made from a renewable resource and strengthens our country’s economy.
This is also going to show my stupidity, but did you know you aren’t supposed to blow a candle out? You are supposed to submerge the wick in the hot soywax to extinguish the flame and re-coat it with the soywax.  Learn something new everyday!
You can order LockStars Soy Candles from their website, like them on FaceBook, and follow them on Twitter!
I was given a free candle by LockStars Soy Candles at the Bean2Blog Event, but was not asked to author this post and will not be compensated.  My experience and opinions regarding the soywax candles are my own.

    or even more turnіng financing the purchase of home appliances intο аn extremely expenѕive burden.
    Βut this isn’t thе only reason to order a free credit report online.

    Working with an industry professional early in thе process can save many hours and
    much needlesѕ frustration.

  1. […] Some of these products you’ve probably heard of already, like soy ink and soy candles.  In the afternoon at Bean2Blog, we got to meet Ron and Connie Locke, owners of LockStars Soy Candles.  It was fun to see how they make their product and even more entertaining to smell the different scents, including Butt Naked and Monkey Farts. I’m not kidding. You can see more about them on Ashley’s Bean2Blog post at The Ederington Family blog. […]
