Made from 100% pure natural Palm Wax from fruit berries of the palm oil tree. ‘Stearin’ or palm wax includes 3% of pure essential oils and is a renewable source that can be replanted and makes the candle burn very clean and smokeless. The wick used in the candle is pure cotton, the candle is paraffin free and has no metal-lead, zinc contents or any animal derived ingredients. This same high quality palm tree oil can be found in hand lotions, shampoos and cosmetics. It’s the purest non-GMO food quality wax. Palm Wax is made just like essential oils simply pressed and distilled. Soy and paraffin candles involve solvent extraction using petroleum chemicals like hexane.
