We Care About Your World
We care about the environment - inside your home and outside in the world - so we made the decision to create products that are safe for your family and can be recycled.
You will feel safe in your home because our fragrances are free from harmful chemicals and our wax is petroleum-free and vegan.
Ritual Tree soy candles are plant-based and sustainable. Our soy wax is sourced from American growers. In fact, the soy was a healthy plant growing in the Midwest just last year! Not only are soy candles made from a renewable resource, they also have the benefits of being safer for indoor spaces than paraffin candles because they burn clean and longer.
Each of our candles are made with:
Our soy candles are hand-poured in small batches, therefore there could be slight irregularities and differences in color. These "irregularities" are characteristic of natural soy candles and in no way inhibit the beautiful fragrance, clean burn, or long burn time.
Indoor Air Pollution?
Yes. It's really a thing!
You wouldn't want to burn leftover residue from the oil refinery at your dinner table, would you?
That's what you're doing when you burn a candle made from paraffin wax. "Soot from paraffin candles includes probable carcinogens toluene and benzene, as well as other toxic chemicals including methyl ethyl ketone and naphthalene," says my favorite podcasters from howstuffworks.com. Yuck.
We choose to use soy wax in our candles because it burns cleanly and doesn't pollute our home. Compared to cheap paraffin candles, your home environment will have about 90% less soot in the air. And soy candles burn longer!
Now, that's a breath of fresh air!
