Sentelle : High Quality Soy Wax Candles - Review and Giveaway

Candle lovers, are you looking for an alternative to the conventional paraffin-based candles? A candle range that is toxin-free and biodegradable? Let me introduce you to Sentelle.

 8oz Olympus Jar Soy Candle


Sentelle was founded by Funmi Ogboye who has more than 10 years experience in the research and development departments of top companies in the cosmetic, skin care and fragrance domain. Funmi turned her passion and love for candles into a successful business bringing together quality and style. Sentelle only sells 100% Soy candles. Why only Soy, I hear you ask? Well, there are many reasons why Soy is the new wonder ingredient in candle making and listed below are some of them:

- Soy candles are clean burning. They do not leave black stains/soot like paraffin wax candles.
- Soy wax candles have a wonderful “scent throw” meaning they have a strong and lasting scent.
- Scented soy candle lasts 50% longer than those with a petroleum base as they burn slower.
- Soy candles are very good carriers of essential oils thus they are an excellent choice for aromatherapy candles.
- Soy candles burn at a lower temperature than paraffin wax candles. So if you accidentally spill soy wax onto your hands it will be less dangerous than paraffin wax.
- Soy wax is water-soluble which means any spillages can be easily washed out with just soap and water.

Made with 100% high quality soy wax infused with pure, unadulterated essential oil, Sentelle candles are available in a wide range of fragrances including: Ylang Ylang, Citrus Basil, English Ivy, Eucalyptus & Spearmint, Wild Fig & Melon, Green Tea & Jasmine,  Lemongrass & Sage, Lily of the Valley and White Gardenia to name a few.

I was recently sent an 8oz Olympus Jar Soy Candle in White Tea and Ginger scent. This is one of Sentelle's best sellers and now I understand why. The soy wax is a beautiful peach colour and has been hand poured into a conical glass jar. It has a very Oriental fragrance. Imagine a blend of citrus with sweet jasmine and exotic spices and tea! It is such a delicious scent. Every time I have lit the candle, the wonderful fragrance has filled the room with happiness. I also like the fact that the candle burns uniformly and does not tunnel. Like I mentioned earlier, soy candles burn slowly. I have been using this candle for a while now and the wax seems to be lasting longer than a standard paraffin wax candle. Overall, based on my experience, this one is a wonderful scent for the lounge.

Tip: Here is a wonderful tip from Sentelle to ensure there is no wastage of the candle. The first time you burn the soy jar candle, you should burn it all the way to the glass edge. This normally takes about 4 hours and this sets the memory burn. At subsequent times you can burn your candle for any length of time and it would always burn to the edge of the glass.
