A story of natural fresh smells
Welcome to our website!
We are glad you found us. Below are some things that are very important to know about Candle Delights by Brigita & Mel and products.
All our products are made by hand in Trumbull, Connecticut.
All our products are made using natural soy wax.
Soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns solid at room temperature. It contains nothing artificial, which makes it a better alternative to old-fashioned paraffin or even soy wax blend candles. There are no harmful ingredients in soy wax, making it better both for the environment and your health. Soy wax is considered nonpoisonous even if eaten, thats how clean of a product it is - though it may cause a blockage in the intestines if a large amount is swallowed. (So please don't eat our candles regardless of how delicious they look!)
Fragrances and sparkles.
We buy our fragrances from reliable, well known candle supply stores. All fragrance oils are 100% liquid concentrate and have been tested for use in candles. If you see glitter in the candle, it is cruelty-free extra fine cosmetic glitter, which is approved for use on faces, hair, or lips.
Soy wax cleans up easily.
Did a couple of drops of melted soy wax escape? No worries, it cleans up with some hot water and soap in no time. We would like you to enjoy our candles instead of cleaning up after them!
Mainstream candles are often made with paraffin wax which might contain benzene.
While paraffin wax makes the colors vibrant and bright, it is made from petroleum oil and produces harmful by-products when burned or melted. Benzene, produced by paraffin wax candles when burned, is classified as carcinogen by The American Cancer Society. We don't want that in your home or lungs.
Protect the environment.
Soy wax is environmentally friendly. It is made from soybeans, which are a renewable resource, unlike petroleum. All of our containers are reusable and can be easily re-purposed or recycled. Simply clean them with hot water and soap.
Meet us: Brigita & mel
Brigita (on the right in the photo):
She is the firecracker behind Candle Delights by Brigita & Mel. She brings entrepreneurship and energy to the table. Always willing to try something new and always open to opportunities, starting a business with a friend was something she didn't have to think about for a moment. Having fun creating something and sharing that with others is just about perfect in her book.
Mel (on the left in the photo):
She has always enjoyed crafts and experimenting with different materials and techniques. One day she decided to make candles with Brigita as a weekend activity and they both fell in love with creating the different colors, looks, and smells. Then came the idea that other people might enjoy their creations too. That is how Candle Delights by Brigita & Mel was born. Out of fun, togetherness, creativity, and friendship.
