Our homes are our havens, that safe, comfortable place we have in this big, crazy world.  Whether my home is perfectly in place or a little messy, whether I’m here by myself or getting ready for company to come over, one thing I want to be sure of is that is smells clean, fresh and pleasant.

I have a lot of allergies and am sensitive to certain scents. This makes it difficult to find room sprays, candles, wax melts and potpourri that doesn’t bother me.  I always try to purchase soy based candles and potpourri that are naturally scented.

If you are not familiar with soy candles, let me share a little information.  Soy wax burns clean and does not produce the black soot like regular wax candles too. Soy candles do let off a little smoke, but if they are truly 100% soy, it is barely noticeable.

Not all soy candles are made alike though, so you need to be sure the company you purchase them from actually uses 100% natural soy. They should have this listed on the candle or their website.  100% soy candles burn longer and give off a stronger, longer lasting scent than the cheaper non-soy candles do.  You may pay a little more upfront for a quality soy candle, but it is going to last much longer, smell better and burn cleaner. Another great thing about soy candles is that soy beans are grown and processed right here in the USA so when you purchase them you are supporting the farmers and the American economy!

For quality soy candles, melts and potpourri you don’t have to look any further than one of our Shop from your Seat Showcase vendors – Me & Mom Wax On…   Becky Willis & her mom Linda have been making high quality 100% soy candles for over 10 years. They both take a lot of pride in offering quality products for others and giving excellent customer service.

The candles burn clean and smooth and the fragrances are amazing!  They have a huge list of everyday scents to choose from plus seasonal only scents like Santa’s Britches, Gingerbread and Pumpkin Harvest available right now.

I think my most favorite product I received to review was the potpourri though.  The smell was just right, not too strong or too light. It also was so pretty with all the different flower buds, leaves, mini pine cones and small pumpkins. (I received the Pumpkin Harvest).  I used half of 1 of the 1/2 gallon bags in the hurricane candle holder you see in the picture. I thought this made the hurricane look so much prettier. (I am using a battery operated glowing candle in it for ambiance).

  • I would love to win one of those! The Santa melts especially. I used to make soy candles as a business, and I love them! I decided the business part was too much to handle on my own, so now I have a website with info on how to make them. I also want to get into trying other companies soy candles and reviewing them, so this would be pretty cool to win 🙂

  • Any of the food based scents sound like they’d smell amazing! I’d be most interested in the Pumpkin Pie or Pineapple scents though cause who doesn’t like pumpkin pie & pineapple is one of my new favorite fruits! Would love to win this giveaway to give soy based candles a try!!

  • I would love to try the Jar candle/sweet pea or apple n’ cinnamon soy candle! Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway.

  • On the rafflecopter where it says Enter the main Shop from Your Seat Giveaway, when i enter there, there is no where to click to go to that page so i cannot get there to do what it says to receive my entry.

  • 16oz Soybean Jar Candle-$18.00 in lavender/herb scent
    Thanks for the contest.

    Also the link is broken in RC for M&M in the Leave a Comment box. (I got there from the link in the story)

  • Love the variety of scents! I would like to try the Air Neutralizer(White), as I have yet to find an air neutralizer that actually eliminated unpleasant odors. Thanks!

  • I would love to try any of these scents, but would really like Cinnamon Apple, Caramel Apple,Dewberry or Kudzu. Any spicy or fruity scents work for me lol Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I would love to try the Primitive Pumpkin Harvest Scent and some type of potpourri because I like to put it into little net bags and put them into my dresser drawers to make everything smell wonderful!

  • it’d be hard to pick only one! but i think i would go with “country store”. it would remind me of when i went shopping in amish stores with my grandma!

  • This is wonderful because all of us at my house are sensitive to smells and have to use inhalers occasionally. Good tip to look for 100% soy on the products just like you have to check the juice content on juices. Love Christmas scents and to have them in Christmas shapes is an added bonus.

  • I would like to try their Clove Soy Bean Jar Candle!! I really like Cloves I have my whole life and I would love to burn this one at christmas!!

  • I would love to try the scents Grandma’s House, and Harvest – and I love the soy melts – you can use a little or a lot depending on the room size/device size.

  • Thanks for the information. I really have no idea what soy waxes are and how they are compared to other scented waxes. It is quite promising that is why I’ll try one soon. Hope they have something that doesn’t give a very strong scent because my nose is so sensitive.
