Soy Delites Candle Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Soy Delites, we recently had the chance to try some really great soy candles:

About Soy Delites:
"We are a husband and wife team based out of our home in Austin, Texas. We first started making soy candles in November 2002 and were soon amazed at how great they smelled and how long they lasted. Christy was especially surprised that she didn't get headaches from them. And once we learned all the disadvantages of paraffin candles versus the benefits of soy candles, we were hooked. Finally, after several months of experimentation with scent, color, and design we launched our business in April 2003.Christy, the candle maker, has a studio art degree from The University of Texas, which helped instill in her an utmost attention to detail and emphasis on aesthetics. Her husband, Garland, has more than 20 years experience in the restaurant business and is very outgoing and affable. He provides invaluable support as our primary sales and marketing force. At Soy Delites, not only do we strive to provide you with an incredibly aromatic product, but we are also committed to giving you a visually stimulating and beautiful experience.
As a result of Garland and Christy's conscientious business approach, they are thrilled to see their return customer base growing by leaps and bounds. In response to numerous requests, Soy Delites is pleased to launch its online store. We trust you'll be as happy as our already loyal customers!
Our soy candles are handmade with care in Austin, Texas using 100% natural soybean wax and cotton wicks. Clean burning and long lasting, Soy Delites Candles are your eco-friendly and healthy candle alternative. We offer several styles to choose from, including tealights, votives, travel tins, and our signature glasses in a diverse array of alluring scents, like clean and invigorating Ginger Lemongrass or bold and sensuous Sandalwood Amber. At Soy Delites, we strive to make not only incredibly aromatic and clean burning candles, but we hope to give you a visually stunning and beautiful experience. Just don’t forget to turn out the lights!"
What we thought: I have really bad allergies and I'm very sensitive to smelly things, so we're pretty careful when it comes to purchasing candles to decorate our home. We were really excited to get the chance to try Soy Delites for this review. Soy Delites candles are the perfect candles for anyone who wants a lovely smelling candle that doesn't give you a major headache. I am so glad we got the chance to review these candles...they are among the few we have found that work for our family. They make our house smell divine in a matter of minutes, they burn longer than regular candles and they are clean-burning...all huge plusses in my book! I love the beautiful decorative glasses they come in which are easy enough to clean and re-use. The tea lights look lovely in them as well:) The variety of scents at Soy Delites is pretty impressive as well. As far as soy candles go, Soy Delites candles are one of our new favorite ways to add style and beauty to our home:) ABCD Diaries gives Soy Delites an A+!!
