WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
Have you ever questioned where the scent of your candles come from?
Perfume oils and "fine" or "luxury" fragrance oils are all buzzwords with one common meaning: they are either partially or entirely synthetic in nature. Often, they are composed of toxic chemicals which, with prolonged exposure, can lead to many health concerns. Headaches and allergies are commonly experienced side effects.
What do we do differently at The Good Soy? We've opted to scent our candles with essential oils - basically, plant extracts, nothing artificial. Essential oils are made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce fragrance.
So, you can breathe easy and rest assured the candle you are burning is not a source of any harmful chemicals. It's what you deserve.
We all know essential oils smell amazing but did you know they have real-life benefits?
Often used in the practice of aromatherapy, essential oils are known to have positive effects on emotional wellbeing. In fact, aromatherapy has been used for centuries!
Fun fact: When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.

Welcome to The Good Soy Candle Co.!
I'm Sevil, founder and artisan. I often get asked why I started The Good Soy. Simply put, I wanted to craft a candle that puts you and your wellbeing first.
Conventional candle brands are largely unconcerned or simply uneducated about the health of their consumers and of the environment.
At The Good Soy, our approach is different. We want to give you a healthier way to experience scent, one that is more mindful and supports your emotional wellbeing.
This, along with thoughtful packaging and chic design, means you don't need to make any compromises!
