Old Factory Candles–A Review!

November 8, 2014

How many of you have been searching for clean burning and chemical free candles?  I know I have!  So when Old Factory Candles contacted me about reviewing their clean burning soy candles I was ecstatic!  Just what I needed to escort me into the beautiful fall and winter holidays.

The candles come in a themed set of 3.  You can buy them on Amazon and if you’re a Prime member, they are a great quick gift for the holidays!  Free shipping and arrival in 2 days, not bad eh? 😉

I thought the packaging was cute and the candle size is also really nice.  They are petite but are promised to burn for 20 hours total per candle with the scent intact the whole time 🙂  I hate when the scent leaves after the first burn!

I chose the Fall Harvest Collection.  I felt it would be perfect for this cool Fall weather we were experiencing! The scents are all very rich yet subtle.  But seriously, check out all of these scents!!  Some of them are a little risque 😉

I knew exactly what I would do to break these candles in!  A luxurious bubble bath 🙂

The candles burned brightly and were really delightful smelling.  Their smoke was clean and it was really nice to know I wasn’t burning a bunch of toxins into the air the baby and I were breathing!  Because I couldn’t find exactly what ingredients were in the candles, I emailed the company rep and here is the answer I got: “Our candles are free from parabens and phthalates, which is very rare in the world of scented candles.  We pay more for our fragrances and work with a fragrance company to produce a line of pure fragrances that combine with our natural wax to make the purest-burning candle possible.”

Woohoo!  I will definitely buy Old Factory Candles again in the future, maybe even for gifts for a lucky few at Christmas 😉

What do you look for when buying candles? Is it only about the scent?  Or is it also about the ingredients?
