Isle of Skye Candle Company

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Friday December 19 2014

We love love love candles here at The Highland Times, even more so if we can source them locally. I have them all over the house and really nothing better than a candle lit soak in the bath after a hard day on the computer keys.! I recently purchased soom Isle of Skye Candles and felt they are so good I really should share with you good people. So he goes.

This is what they say and personally I could not  agree more, well done Isle of Skye Candles.

The Isle of Skye Candle Company is committed to providing the best quality natural candles at the most competitive price. They promise to use 100% renewable Soya wax and only the finest quality oils."

The biggest advantage of burning a Skye Candle is that you're getting real value for money as we use only the best quality oils and wax but still manage to keep them very affordable.

We use Natural Soya wax which is not only good for the environment but, unlike paraffin wax, good for you too! The combination of wax and oils that we use give us the longest burn times and cleanest burns around.

We have developed our own special wicks to optimise the burn of our candles so that you will not be left with any wax in your glass when it has burned all the way to the bottom. Because the blend of soya wax we use burns at a lower temperature it gives a much better fragrance release as the burn pool is not burnt off quickly.

As every candle is handmade from start to finish, you can be sure of the best quality product as any defects will be spotted and checked by our diligent employees.

With Soya wax being grown rather than extracted from oil like paraffin wax, there is no harm done to the environment as once the soya has been harvested more can simply be grown.

Unlike other candle companies, we do not exaggerate our burn times (we may exaggerate about other things, such as the weather in Skye). The time we say is the very minimum you will get, with 99% of our candles burning for a lot longer.
