We’ve all been there. Perfect day, perfect ride… until all of a sudden its not, and you find yourself face down in the dirt! But those of us who are truly dedicated pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get right back in the saddle! Hopefully you at least ended up with a good story to tell!
This candle is inspired by all the bruised and broken equestrians out there who dare to get back up on their ponies! This one is a bit more of a novelty item, the scent actually smells like dirt! Fitting, right?
Grey Horse Candle Company uses natural soy wax from American grown soy beans and premium grade fragrance oils. Each candle is hand-poured in small batches and contains a 12 ounce canning jar that may be reused for other purposes.

TRIM THE WICK
Make sure to keep the wick trimmed to ¼” This will ensure the best possible scent throw from your candle and keep it from burning too quickly. Fingernail clippers work great for this!
CREATE A WAX POOL
Soy wax has a memory and should be allowed to achieve a full melt pool on it's very first burn. This means that the pool of liquid wax should reach the edges of the container. If the candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all subsequent melt pools will not go past the first one.
To create a full melt pool, burn the candle for a minimum of one (1) hour for every inch of it's diameter. All future burns should follow the first one's path and melt fully to the sides. Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
Soy candles are natural since they’re made from vegetable oil (soybeans). On the other hand,paraffin candles are made from petroleum oil. As a result, soy wax candles do not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere like paraffin candles do. Furthermore, soy candles do not require chemicals to scent them. Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax is naturally biodegradable.
Soy candles burn 50% longer (Sometimes even more when the wick is kept trimmed!) than regular candles. Therefore, even though soy wax candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin wax candles to buy, they are still more cost-effective in the long run, because you get twice the candle!
BETTER FOR YOU.
Soy candles are non-toxic since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. Plus, they clean up easier (just use soap and water) when the wax is spilled.
Paraffin candles release a petro-carbon soot that stains your walls, furniture and is circulated through your air ducts. This soot, according to the American Lung Association, contains 11 documented toxins, 2 of which are known carcinogens — toluene and benzene.
The scent from soy candles is much stronger and more pleasant than the scent from paraffin wax candles. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, there is a larger amount of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick itself. It is from this liquid wax pool and the wick itself that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere.
When it’s said that a candle scent “throws well”, this means it fills the room with a strong, lasting scent. Soy wax candles not only have a great scent throw, but also have a cleaner smell. It’s been noted by many that paraffin wax will give them headaches. Of course it’s not the scent itself, but the additional chemicals the paraffin is putting off. Because soy burns so clean, you’ll get a cleaner scent as well!
