How Our Candles Are Different

Peace love and Kesim candles are proudly hand poured in small batches in Ontario, Canada. All our candles use 100% plant-based soy wax, 100% pure essential oils and lead-free cotton wicks. Our candles are clean, natural and safe.  All our labels feature one-of-a-kind nature-inspired creations, renew your love long term and re-purpose your vessel!

Conventional candles compromise health. Paraffin or a paraffin-blend is the go-to wax in most of the candles on the market. Paraffin is a biproduct of the petroleum industry. Leftover sludge is deodorized and chemically bleached before mixed into the candle wax. The addition of synthetic colors and artificial scents offer an array of fun smells, but once lit, toxic toluene, benzene, formaldehyde, and acetaldehyde to name a few, become airborne. Inhaling chemicals, released in second-hand smoke produced by conventional candles can cause headaches, but worse than that, conventional candles target the central nervous system. Toxins released from conventional candles increase the effects of asthma and linked to cancer. Peace love and Kesim candles use cotton wicks instead of lead.

Peace love and Kesim candles are plant-based, using 100% soybean wax. Because 100% soy wax has a lower melting point, our candles burn 50% longer than conventional paraffin candles sold in the marketplace.

Peace love and Kesim candles bring holistic happiness to any space!
