About Soy Candles by Bijou

History of Our Candle Store Chicago

We associate candles with home, warmth and love. Scented, soy candles allow us to feel good and cozy and their smell becomes just as necessary to us as in childhood  bedtime story. The view of a lit candle, its warm light and sensual fragrance, perfectly affects our mood, improving it and allowing us to relax even after a hard day. There is also a certain amount of mystery in these soy candles, as well as opportunities to move to the world of dreams. Candles accompany us in all moments of life, just as they have for centuries. There is magic in the soothing glow of a candle standing in a room.That's why we love them so much and decided to bring that love to others. We use only 100% all natural soy wax and no artificial colors or dyes. We strive to bring the perfect balance of scent, without being over powering, and affordability.


What Makes Our Soy Candles an Advantage Over Others?

100% Soy

100% Natural

Candle By Bijou is a family operated business because we have a great passion for candles that are produced to the finest standards. We use only the best quality natural ingredients to create a wonderful homemade soy candle in Chicago.
But what makes soy candles the best when compared to paraffin candles?
A pure soy candle is made from soybeans, so it is a natural, clean option that burns cleaner and lasts longer than paraffin candles, which are made from petroleum that releases carcinogens into the air. Plus, using soy supports local growers, helping to keep the regional economy going.
When burning your candle in a jar, it’s easy to notice the difference. The cleaner burn of the soy candle produces less soot, whereas a paraffin candle will often leave black spots on the jar, not a good look. And because of the slow burn and the lower burning temperature of the soy candle, you get more candle burning time for more enjoyment, without the loss of color.
That cleaner burn allows for the essential oil scent to come through in a gradual way that is not overwhelming, so the atmosphere you create is more serene than you may find with a paraffin or mixed paraffin-soy candle.
For natural candles in Chicago, be sure that you have the finest in soy wax candles from Candle By Bijou. That finer quality over paraffin wax makes all the difference.

Do You Know How To
Properly Burn Soy Candles?

Just like any other candle, soy candles in Chicago must be burned correctly to ensure that you get the most out of them as well as security reasons. Here are a couple of steps that you can do to make sure that you are burning your soy wax candle properly.


Now, a soy wax candle has something that's called a memory. This means that when you burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the soy wax will melt across as fast as it did the first time. That's why it's essential to allow the soy candles to burn across the container's edge during the first time that you burn it. It would also avoid any wax left along the sides of the jar or container.


It's always wise not to leave your soy candle in a jar burning for more than four hours. This would prevent the container from getting too hot as well as maintaining a nice cool burn. Also, make sure that your candle is thoroughly cooled before touching it. Another thing to remember is to keep your soy candles away from drafts because, when appropriately burned, it can produce little soot.
