Soy Candles and Wax Melts – Local Made in Battle Creek, Michigan


At the Battle Creek Gift Shop, you’ll always find a big selection of soy candles in many fine scents. We also have scented wax melts.

Clean Burning and Less Irritating to Allergies

If you’re familiar with the benefits of soy candles, you’ll know that they provide long burning times and no exposure to the carcinogenic soots released by petrochemical paraffin candles. If a candle does not say what it is made out of – like many that you’ll find at the big stores – then it’s probably made from any cheap goo leftover from the oil refining process.

Scott makes almost all of the soy candles that we sell. He hand pours them and takes care to use the proper size wick for the size of jar. Did you know that the diameter of a candle determines the wick size. If you’ve ever bought a candle and had it burn a hole down into the wax and go out, it was because the wick was not the right size.

The majority of our candles are priced $6.99 to $8.99.
