Our CEO/FOUNDER Angela Redmond created Expressions of Essence
with aspirations to create a strong scented, clean burning candle. Angela was unable to find the product she sought, so she created it! It all started in her grandmother's kitchen with some wax, fragrance oil, and a couple of pouring pots etc. Now, Expressions of Essence is a small business looking to scent up the world. We love that our candles provide serenity in your home, office or when traveling. We want to provide the essence of home no matter where you are. Our candles are made with 100% Soy wax to provide a clean burning, long lasting experience. Expressions of Essence was created to enhance candle lovers sense of peace, relaxation, and serenity with Eco-friendly products, that calm your spirit, captivate your mind, and put your soul at ease. We'll let you in on our secret ingredient- Our candles are hand poured with Love.
Soy Wax 101- Soy Wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting the beans, they are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. Soy wax is a renewable resource that burns cleaner and produces less soot than paraffin wax. Soy beans are American grown, so when purchasing an EofE candle, you are supporting local farmers as well.
Candle burning- When burning your soy candle for the first time, we highly recommend burning the candle for at least 3-4 hours. Soy wax is known as a “memory wax”, which sets the tone how the candle will burn going forward. Burning for the suggested time frame helps to keep the candle from "tunneling" down the middle of the container. The beauty of soy wax is that it burns slow, so our candles have a burn life of 40-45 hours.
Candle Maintenance- TRIM, TRIM, TRIM! Trimming your wicks after each burn is important to maintain the life of the candle properly. Wicks should be trimmed after each burn. Keeping the wicks trimmed gives maximum burn time, keeps debris out of container, and ensures candle will burn with less soot. We recommend using a wick trimmer to cut wicks; however, scissors work just fine. Do not burn candle when there is approximately 1/4 of wax remaining in container.
Candle Safety- Never leave a candle burning unattended. Always Burn candles in a well-ventilated area, away from fabrics, paper, or other flammable objects.
The scent of candles has a calming effect that helps to reduce stress and ultimately create a healthy environment for mind & body. The use of Scented Candles in Spas, Boutiques and during Massage Therapy makes for a tranquil atmosphere. Let the aromatic fragrance from Expressions of Essence help soothe and relax you.
