Many of our customers ask: what is the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils? At 1502 Candle Co., we use exceptional fragrance and essential oil blends to create our soy wax candles and refresh fragrance mists. In the simplest terms, this allows us to create a line of home fragrances that are unique, affordable and highly fragrant.
Michael Richards, a candle maker, discovered soy wax in 1991. Michael was looking for an inexpensive alternative to beeswax. As he experimented with different types of vegetable products, he eventually discovered a relatively cheap way to create wax from soybean oil. His invention paved the way for a new kind of candle, which burned cleaner than paraffin and was less costly to produce than many alternatives.
