Green Living Show Vancouver: Scent with Love

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Upon first inspection this looked like a booth that promoted some lovely soy candles, but it was actually more than that. The soy candles, that come in many delicious flavours like oatmeal (that made Keira smell like cookies), cucumber melon, root beer, peaches, tangerine pina colada, and strawberry banana also serve as a skin moisturizer.

As the candle melt the “wax” actually becomes an oil. Simply dip your finger into the oil and rub it on like you would hand or body lotion. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue and the soybean oil is actually better for your skin as they are pure grade essential oils. Also the wicks are cotton, containing no lead, and the candles last longer (3 times longer than paraffin candles) producing less soot.

All in all these soybean candles smell delicious, providing aromatherapy and a smooth skin – my hands and arms still smell like pina colada as I type this. Mmm – mmm!

Unfortunately this particular company does not sell their products in stores, they simply do the trade show circuit and provide products for fundraisers so if you like what you see be sure to take advantage of the Green Living Show sale.
