Renewable, biodegradable & vegan candles – I CAN’T COPE.

Anyone else obsessed with candles?? Obsessed as in you buy new ones when you already have plenty, or obsessed as in you can’t walk past them in the shop with out sniffing every single different scent. Freshly mowed lawns, rose petals, cupcake.. urgh.

Here’s a new one for you – what about candles that smelled like books, fictional worlds & literary characters?? This is what my new fav candle smells like. A soy candle with a bookish smell, what more can a vegan book-worm want!?

These candles are produced by an amazing brand called Frost Beard Studio. A couple in Minnesota & (their love of books & candles) came up with this fantastic idea & the candles have proved to be very popular worldwide.

& good news for you if you are in the UAE! The Good Stuff stock these candles! All their products are displayed in Dubai at the Open Space Business Centre, Level 22 Millennium Plaza Hotel.

I have the ‘Don’t Panic’ (Fresh Towels) candle, which smells of fresh linen & green tea – 2 of the best smells EVER. Part of the Book Lovers’ Series, the candle I have has a completely original scent.


Scents: Fresh cotton, Green tea
Scent Strength:Medium/Strong
Materials: Soy wax, Cotton wick, Glass jar, Plastic lid, Dye chips, Fragrance oil
Burn time: approximately 65 hours

Why I am obsessed:

    • Soy wax is renewable, biodegradable and vegan.
    • All candles are carefully hand-poured in small batches.
    • Jars are recyclable and reusable.
    • Cotton wicks are lead-free.

Apart from the fact that the by purchasing these candles you are supporting a small business, there are so many reasons why you should stick to soy candles;

1. Soy candles usually burn longer
2. Soy wax is 100% biodegradable
3. If you drip wax everywhere, soy wax is easier to clean
4. The beautiful fragrances are released quicker with soy candles
5. Soy wax is made from natural vegetable products (as opposed to paraffin which is a refined gasoline product)
6. So when you burn a paraffin candle, you are released the same toxins into the air that are found in diesel fuel (gross)

I could sit and roast paraffin all day, there are so many articles online telling you the reasons why you should be avoiding them.

Also, for my UAE vegans, these soy candles do not contain any beeswax. I know there are a few other soy candles for sale through out the region, however these are the first ones I have found to be completely vegan (yay!)
