Why Choose Soy Scented Candles?

In this article, I am going to introduce you to some of my favorites in the Soy Candle ranges from Archipelago.

Archipelago Soy Candles come in four main collections, the Archipelago Botanicals candles are branded AB and come in a large and small size, hand-poured soy candle. The other collections are Excursion Soy Candles, Private Reserve Soy Candles and Signature Soy Candles.

The Archipelago Botanicals brand is designed on the premise of creating beautiful, natural products to help people to relax and unwind from their busy schedules. In essence, all the Archipelago products are designed to pamper us – so give in to a little indulgence and spoil yourself.

Choose these soy candles and be safe in the knowledge that the natural soy wax has a clean burn and will last a long time, making it economical as well as luxurious. The combination of soy wax and metal-free wicks are safe for you and the environment and the fragrance will create the mood you are looking for in whichever room you choose to light your candle.

How To Care For Your Soy Wax Scented Candles

Archipelago soy wax candles are easy to use and care for.

  • Trim the wick to about ¼” before lighting the candle.
  • Burning your candles for periods of around two hours will help them burn longer and more evenly.
  • Extinguish your candle with a snuffer or candle extinguisher rather than blowing it out (never use water)
  • Always allow your candle to cool and the wax to solidify again before relighting.

If Fragranced candles give you a headache, try these!

In my online research, I found that Archipelago Soy Candles got great customer reviews.

In one review I read, the reviewer wrote that out of all the scented candle brands she had tried, Archipelago Soy candles were the only ones that did not give her a headache.

I was interested to read in one review that some candle manufacturers seem to put the most highly fragranced wax in the top one inch or so but Archipelago candles can be relied upon to be consistent throughout the whole candle.

Each 14 oz Archipelago Soy Candle in the Archipelago Botanicals Home Collection is designed to burn for at least 90 hours which I think represents amazing value for money at only about 30 cents an hour! That’s not many cents for your scent! Each hand poured candle contains more that 50% natural soy wax. If you are buying the candle as a gift, it is nice to know that each one comes complete in a beautiful gift box.

The links below are only a small sample of the range - click on any of them to see the rest of the collection available.

The Excursion Range

The Archipelago Botanicals Excursion Soy Candles Collection

The Archipelago Botanicals Excursion Soy Candles Collection all have names of exotic places and travel destinations (and maybe not so exotic as I notice one called Stonehenge which is just up the road from where I live and is maybe romantic, but definitely not exotic!).

These wonderful candles are all hand poured and made of only the finest, premium wax blend containing more than 50% natural soy wax (some candles in the range, more than 60%) and a safe lead-free wick. All of which makes them burn longer and more cleanly and the average burn time for each of these 9.5 oz candles is approximately 60 hours. The fragrance for each is complex, made from blends of concentrated essential oils which give a delightful room filling aroma. My favourite candle in this range is Positano and the aroma of this is a delicious blend of persimmon, pomegranate and white nectarine.

The links below are just a small selection of the range available. Clicking on any of the links will enable you to browse more of the collection.


There are five distinctive and unusual fragrances in the Private Reserve Collection, Leather,Zest, Lust, Stem and Grass.

Archipelago Botanicals Private Reserve Collection

The Archipelago Botanicals Private Reserve Collection really is, in my opinion something special.  The first thing you notice is the unusual and stylish black on black graphic design which echoes the brand’s LA roots.  The black glass candle holder is also sleek and stylish and the candles themselves are unusual in that the fragrances for each of the five candles in the range have been hand-picked by the creators of the Archipelago brand and made with high end essences not often found in retail products.  The fragrances are unusual and complex and well worth the extra expense.  One of these candles would certainly make a great gift.

Each candle weighs 8.64 oz (245 grams) and burns for approximately 55 hours.

With 26 different fragrances currently in the Signature Collection, you are spoilt for choice!

Archipelago Botanicals Signature Collection Soy Candles

The Archipelago Botanicals Signature Collection Soy Candles get fantastic reviews online. Many of the fragrances particularly appeal to men too, like the Bergamot Tobacco and all give a full bodied, clean scented home filling aroma. If you would like to give one of the candles in the signature collection as a gift to a special someone, there are currently 26 different fragrances to choose from so you are sure to be able to find the perfect fragrance for everyone.  Each candle comes in a beautiful gift box.

Each aromatherapy candle will burn for around 60 hours.

Archipelago Botanicals also make a fabulous range of beauty products.  This is the link to the Archipelago Botanicals Bath and Body products range and this is the link to the Archipelago Botanicals Skin Care products range - enjoy!

    I love scented candles. I haven't heard of Soy candles before, but they sound like something worth trying.
