<--COVID-19 Update-->

January  2021

River Road Candleworks hopes to resume live craft shows during 2021. But we will not resume live events until we receive both doses of a vaccine. We are at a higher risk because we are older than some of you.

--> We are *O P E N*  for business!  <--

There are four ways you can get candles that don't involve a risk of any of us catching the virus from each other

--> Free Delivery: If you order a minimum of a six plus one candle special ($45.00), and live between the C & D Canal and the Pennsylvania State Line, I will deliver your candles to your door or office.

--> Delivery for a Fee: If you live in Middletown, DE, or Chadds Ford, PA; or similarly close by, I will deliver your candles to your location for a reasonable fee which is going to be quicker and likely less than shipping. Please inquire for further details.

--> At Cost Shipping: I can ship your order to you at cost of postage and materials. I use USPS Priority Mail and Regional Rate or Flat Rate Packaging. I have been doing quite a bit of this sort of shipping in the last five months.

--> Contact-less Porch Pick-up: If you live close to my location in the Gordon Heights/Bellefonte area, or are passing through the area from time to time, you can pick up your order right from my doorstep. I am less than a mile from I-495 and about 1 . 5 miles from I-95. I can have your order waiting for you on my sheltered porch when you arrive.

Buy All Soy - Buy Sustainable

Many folks trying to sell you 'soy candles' aren't using eco-friendly, sustainable 100 % Soy Wax!

Many so-called all soy waxes use 'botanical oils or ingredients' to enhance the look or performance of their products. Guess what those might be.... Many include Palm Wax made from palm oil. Palm oils come from palm oil plantations...most of those are carved out of the tropical rain forest - which destroys rain forest habitat... 

My guess is that you want your candles to be as eco-friendly as possible. That doesn't include using non-habitat sustaining palm wax in your candles. The actual palm oil plantations may be certified sustainable, but how they got there was NOT..

They grow palms in plantations in tropical areas. Have your suppliers prove their palm wax was not sourced from plantations which destroyed rainforest to plant palm trees. Or,  better yet, buy with confidence from River Road Candleworks.

We DO NOT USE soy blended with 'botanical oils'

!!! No Palm Oils or Palm oil Products in Our Candles !!!

No Extra Goop in Your Candles

River Road Candleworks doesn't use any extra 'Stuff' in your candles. We don't use any polymer additives. We don't use any dyes. We don't use any chemical stabilizers for our scents or in our wax. We don't use any 'universal soy additive' (USA) in our wax. Our wax is 100% soy. We use a straight 100% soy container candle wax.

This wax is FDA approved and Kosher certified. It's not a soy blend or a 'botanical oil'-based wax. You get what you pay for. The use of other waxes or additives are to either make a prettier candle (colored candles reportedly look better with palm wax additive) or to change the physical properties of the wax to make it burn differently or 'throw scent' differently. 100% soy wax gives you good cold and hot scent throw.

Since we use no dyes in our candles, we need no additives to make the natural color of the wax 'prettier' .Remember that if you burn candles containing dyes, you are breathing the combustion products of those dyes,

 Ask other candle manufacturers to tell you which wax they use. 

Ask them if it is a blend...

Ask them what is in the blend.. If they can't or won't tell you, don't buy them.

Soy Allergy?? - Read this

Allergen Statement

The causative agents of food allergies are the proteins of the oilseed from which edible oils (soybean, canola, cottonseed, sunflower, corn, palm, palm kernel, coconut, peanut) are extracted. These Oils are then highly refined through the process of refining, bleaching and deodorization. These oils described in studies as "highly refined" do not demonstrate a hazard to allergic individuals, as shown in studies using the "gold standard" for food allergy diagnosis, the double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge.
