 Natural and Renewable: Soy wax is derived from soybean oil, making it a renewable resource. It's also biodegradable, meaning it's better for the environment compared to paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum.

Cleaner Burning: Soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax, producing fewer toxins and pollutants like soot. This cleaner burn contributes to better indoor air quality and reduces the risk of respiratory issues.

Longer Burn Time: Soy wax candles typically have a longer burn time compared to paraffin candles of the same size. This means you can enjoy your soy wax candle for a longer period before needing to replace it.

 Better Scent Throw: Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, allowing it to release fragrances more effectively. This results in a stronger and more consistent scent throw, filling your space with delightful aromas.

Easy Cleanup: Spills and drips from soy wax candles are easy to clean up with soap and water, unlike paraffin wax which can be more difficult to remove from surfaces.

Support for Farmers: Soybean farming supports local farmers and agricultural communities. By choosing soy wax candles, you're contributing to sustainable agriculture and supporting farmers who grow soybeans.

Kin & Care


Kin & Care began with a chance encounter. Then a casual conversation between two immigrant women. Pleasantries were exchanged, stories were told, and the conversation slowly grew into something a little less casual and a lot more personal... expressing empathy for the challenges immigrant women experience as they try to find opportunities and kinship in their new home. And the commonality of those challenges, regardless of the many different ways immigrants arrive. Out of chance came a vision: To create a company with products made by immigrant women in the Washington, DC area thereby empowering these women to build a place of their own for themselves and for their families. But what kind of products? Candles! Hand poured, small batch, wonderfully fragrant candles to be exact. Made at home to provide security and accommodate flexible schedules. And scalable so that opportunities for refugee women grow as the brand evolves.
