I have a new addition to my product line: Cozy Candles from Susan’s Sumptuous Soaps are made with 100% soy wax and are generously scented with high quality, intoxicating fragrance oils. They contain no added colorants or chemicals.These containers are 16 ounce glass jars. I use both “salsa jars” (4½” tall with a top opening 3” in diameter) and “mason jars” (5” tall with a top opening 2 ½” in diameter). Each jar has been decorated with a translucent mixed media design.
Although a variety of factors impact candle burning time, you can generally expect an average burn time of 85 to 100 hours from each of these candles.
Jars can be cleaned with a damp cloth. In light of the mixed media designs, they are not dishwasher safe and should not be soaked. When you have used up the candle, you can wash out the inside of the jar by hand with soap and water and repurpose it, or put a tea light or other small candle inside. Soy wax is much easier to clean than paraffin wax.
Why choose soy wax over paraffin?
•Cleaner burning – no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants. •Soy wax candles last up to 50% longer than a paraffin candle due to the fact that soy has a lower melting point so it burns slower and longer. •Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource. •Soy wax is biodegradable and cleans up easily with soap and water. •Soy wax candles do not produce petro-carbon soot like petroleum based paraffin wax candles.
Why choose Cozy Candles from Susan’s Sumptuous Soaps?
How often have you thought that a candle smelled good when you opened the container, but it didn’t smell as good when you burned it? Or you had to stand over the candle to smell it? Or the fragrance didn’t last as long as the candle? How many candles have you thrown away because they were a disappointment?
When I made my first soy wax candle, the fragrance was incredible. It permeated the kitchen and spread to the dining and living rooms. I couldn’t stop sniffing! From that moment on, I knew I couldn’t go back to candles from the big-box stores.
My Cozy Candles are highly fragranced. In fact, that is one quality that sets my Cozy Candles apart from other candles – soy or paraffin. My candles contain more fragrance, producing a scent that wafts from room to room, throughout the life of the candle.
Another quality that sets my candles apart from the rest is the design element. Each candle is decorated with a translucent mixed media design. When you have used up the candle, you can wash out the inside of the jar by hand with soap and water and repurpose it, or put a tea light or other small candle inside.
Finally, everyone has different fragrance favorites. Pick your favorite candle container, and pick your favorite fragrance ~ for your best candle ever.

What exactly is Soy Wax?
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed. The U.S. grows the vast majority of the world's soy beans, primarily in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana.
Candle Burning Tips
Candle burning times can vary slightly depending on the placement of your candle. For best results, do not burn near a fan, air vent or open window, as the candle will burn slightly faster and less evenly.
Candle burning times will also vary depending on the height of your wick; the longer the wick, the shorter the candle burning time. You can extend your candle’s burning time by (1) trimming the wick to ¼” each time before burning, and (2) burning the candle long enough to allow the wax pool to reach the edge of the container. If you don’t allow the pool to reach the edge when you first burn them, they will begin to tunnel down into the wax. That will shorten your candle’s burning time.
