Irie Star based in St Louis, MO. has added three new fragrances Happiness, Delight and Lift to their aromatherapy soy candle line. Their collection now totals 10 scents packaged in charming travel tins as well as votives, tea light candles, bug repellant candles and travel tin gift sets.
The scents that I tried were Delight, a blend of nutmeg, cedar and balsam peru and Happiness a refreshing blend of lemony may chang, petitgrain, lime and frankincense.
The renewable GMO-free soy wax burns cleaner than pure beeswax candles and for a much longer time than paraffin candles with none of the toxicity which is said to be as harmful to the lungs as any other kind of second hand smoke. I was cheered by the green goodness of the BiSSoma soy candle line and look forward to sampling more of the products produced by Irie Star such as their BiSSoma skin care solutions and personal fragrances.
Bottom line? Good clean, affordable fun. Perfect for gift giving time.

Sillage: the soy candles have a 3’ scent sillage. Mild in comparison to synthetically scented candles.
