Plant based additives


Natural waxes are an alternative to paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum as a by-product of making gasoline. It is known for having a great fragrance throw and used by many reputable candle companies.

Paraffin wax could however, produce numerous toxic carcinogens and can emit dangerous vapours into the air. With more people researching on where their products come from, this led to a boom in people wanting natural products.

Here at The Perfected Scent we use both 100% soy wax and a blend of luxurious coconut and soy wax in our products.

Less Soot

A clean burn is what we all look for in a candle right? Some of you may be wondering, what is a clean burn? You know when the top of your candle jar gets that horrible black smoke around the rim? This is common, but natural waxes (and a properly wicked candle) reduces this significantly.

Why we chose them?

After countless months, days, minutes, seconds (you see where this is going...). We have decided that soy wax has our heart for our wax melts and for our candles. We loved soy wax so much we wanted to blend it with another natural wax! The luxurious coconut and soy wax was the winner and has not disappointed. 

We continuously test our products on a regular basis to ensure they have the best performance for our customers.
