As with all of our products, Benevolence LA scented candles are made with an ethic and a purpose. Each aromatherapy candle helps to shine a light on the darkness of sex trafficking. We donate to Ashton Kutcher’s charity, Thorn, who work with the latest technology to fight this terrible injustice in our world. Our candles are made with natural soy wax, the best choice for the health of your home. Soy wax candles are made from soybean oil, while paraffin candles are made using petroleum. Soy wax candles don’t increase carbon dioxide levels in your house-or in the atmosphere. Soy wax candles burn 50 percent longer than other candles, and are much cleaner burning as well. Our candles leave no excess wax on the side of the jar. No soot is produced to stain curtains or walls. The candles are non-toxic, and the aroma is much more powerful, pleasant, and longer-lasting. You’ll notice right away that our candles are made with enough natural fragrance to fill your room. No faint smelling candles here.
