Vegan Soy Candles: Info and Product Review for Lorain’s Touch Soy Candles

Did you know that most of the conventional candles you find in stores are actually bad for your health and the environment? With lead wicks, polluting paraffin wax, fake, chemical-laden scents - and even tallow - conventional candles might look and smell lovely, but animals, the environment and your health are paying a high price for that warm, inviting glow.

Fortunately, there are eco-friendly vegan candle options that are clean burning and create a warm, welcoming atmosphere that will enhance the ambiance of any space without harmful chemicals and pollutants. All natural, vegan soy candles are a great option that burn longer and cleaner than conventional candles, and I just happen to know where you can order them right from the comfort of your own home.

I recently came across LorainsTouch.com where vegan and vegetarian candle lovers will find deliciously scented vegan soy candles that are handmade by a fellow energy healer and artisan crafter, Lorain Danus.

Living and working in the Huntington Beach, CA area, Lorain founded Lorain’s Touch and began to make handmade soy candles to provide energy, mood and spirit enhancing options that are vegan and eco-friendly.

Each of Lorain’s vegan soy candle creations is energized with specific intentions and positive energy, which is released into the surrounding atmosphere when lit. Available in two, four and eight ounce reusable tins, Lorain’s vegan soy candle scents/intentions include:

Focused - Oatmeal Milk & Honey
Happy - Vermont Maple Sugar
Cheerful - Bergamont & Coriander
Creativity - Blackberry Sage
Harmony - Green Tea
Compassion - Gardenia Blossoms
Strength - Lemongrass
Enlightenment - Water Blossom & Ivy
Abundance – Amber

Lorain also offers additional scents and intentions (as well as her sacred jewelry) that can be found at her website, www.lorainstouch.com.

Lorain’s candles are surprisingly affordable for vegan soy candles, which can sometimes be pretty pricey, and their clean, chemical-free scents are an absolute delight. I particularly love their long burn time and the super handy reusable tin that adds to their eco-friendliness. If you are in the market for some vegan soy candles for a romantic evening, a relaxing bath, or an energizing aromatherapeutic experience, I highly recommend stopping by Lorain’s Touch to check out her vegan soy candle offerings.
