A Find: Joya Candles

September 26, 2005 by Adrienne

Candles usually mean smoke and dripping wax to clean up. Not so with Joya Candles. These elegant and simple candles avoid drips and excess heat. And, thanks to vegetable wax, there’s NO SMOKE!

I was given a humble votive of lemongrass & guava as a “thank you” from a co-worker. Without lighting it, the gentle (it was very gentle) fragrance graced my cube for days and people near me smiled. A clear acrylic box and organza bow enveloped the votive — no wrapping needed. And such is the care with which each candle is presented, whether it’s a 2-inch pillar or a 2-wick jar.

And the fragrance! Unlit, it is subtle. Lit, it is sublime. I’m addicted to gardenia & honeysuckle. Lilac & cyclamen are perfect for the bathroom. Cassis & green ivy for the kitchen. Juniper & vetiver for bedroom. With 15 fragrances, there’s plenty to choose from.

Handmade in New York City, the candles comprise essential oils, palm oil kernels and cotton wicks — uber-natural. The upside: no smoke, no drips, no synthentic stuff, amazing fragrance and beautiful packaging. What more could you ask for?

A great find at joyacandle.com
