Shining Sol not only aims to create the best eco-friendly candle on the market using 100% soy wax, but also keeps everything "local" by using the soy grown by farmers in the American Heartland. The soy wax is considered a healthier and eco-friendly alternative to other more traditional candle waxes, according to Evick.The candle also has a wooden wick, considered to be a healthier, eco-friendlier alternative to traditional cotton wicks which often contain chemicals and lead. All components of the product are American made, from the wick cutting, to the glass vessels and the candles themselves, which are hand poured in Virginia. Customers can even make their own candle, choosing the size, scent and color.
