Serendipity Candles are the best choice for your home and the environment. Serendipity Candles contain no harmful ingredients linked to allergy-like symptoms, aggravated asthma or an irritated respiratory tract. Soy candles also burn twice as slow as paraffin, allowing you to enjoy them for twice as long. Additionally, the scent is much stronger and more pleasant. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, more liquid pools around the wick (releasing fragrance into the atmosphere more easily). We carefully source all our wax from companies that are committed to meeting the highest of standards. All of our fragrance oils are created to be paraben and phosphate free AND also phthalate free.
