Our candles are hand poured in Geelong, Victoria, using the finest quality Soy wax made from pure natural soy bean oil. We searched until we found the best quality soy wax. This wax is biodegradable, contains no paraffin or Genetically Modified Material, and is free from pesticides and herbicides. This results in a clean burn and longer lasting candle, with an excellent scent throw. We use the maximum amount of scent possible in all of our candles, and only choose Australian made fragrances. The wicks we use are cotton wicks, and they are lead free. We choose not to colour our soy wax, ensuring that this will not stain and is easily washed away with soapy water. You can even rub it on your skin as a moisturiser!
Our quality doesn't stop there. Our glass and packaging is also of top quality. We use moulded glass for
our candles, which is much stronger and thicker than handblown glass. This eliminates breakage when taking the lid off (as often experienced with cheaper style glasses) and this glass is safer to use for candles. Our packaging has also been upgraded to a stronger box with a lining to keep your candle stable whilst in transit.
Every time you light a Frieda & Gus soy Candle you can enjoy the beautiful scent and ambiance that is created, and also know that you are making a better choice burning a candle made with Kosher certified soy wax, that contains no paraffin.
