Vegas Handmade Candles
The Picky Wick
Let me tell you why I hate candles.  I said what
I said.  Sadly they aren't made for our health. 
I will tell you how they are made though... make
sure you're sitting down!  The fragrances we
enjoy wafting through our homes are typically
synthetic and when burned they releases a
multitude of volatile organic compounds (VOC's)
like formaldehyde for instance, into the air. 
Probably the most alarming thing about these
synthetic fragrances are the use of phthalates.
This is a manmade chemical that is used in almost
anything you can think of.  They make plastics
more flexible, they make nail polish more chip
resistant and they make candles carry a stronger
scent, which would make them responsible for the
headaches people tend to get with candles. If you
thought that was all, it's not please stay
seated!  Phthalates act as endocrine disruptors. 
This means they disrupt your body's natural
hormone production by mimicking hormones
themselves causing mass confusion for your body. 
When you burn your candle you send these littler
chaos inducing jerks into the air where they can
be both inhaled or absorbed through your skin. 
Is anyone else grossed out??
The Picky Wick
Then there is the wax... oh the wax!  It is
common to use paraffin wax which is a petroleum
waste product that is also bleached to make a
creamier color wax.  This creates highly toxic
carcinogens when burned which is known to be as
harmful as second hand smoke.   Traditional
cotton wicks have a lead core.  So what happens
when you light the candle?  You burn heavy metals
into the air.  Yikes! What is there to like about
The Picky Wick
Something had to be done!  I missed the soft glow
of a candle while I enjoyed a book or a cup of
coffee.  Enter The Picky Wick where we don't
allow any non-scents!  Take that in... appreciate
that play on words would you?  We are picky about
our ingredients and what goes into people's homes
so only 100 soy wax is used which is a vegetable
based wax and burns clean with no worrisome
chemicals.  The fragrances are high quality and
use essential oils.  The wicks are wood make from
fruit trees so it gives a soothing crackle as it
burns.  I make them in small batches and usually
made to order!  There are no carcinogens, no
mutagens, no reproductive toxins, no heavy
metals.  Just a clean candle with a fragrant but
not overpowering scent.  Everyone deserves to buy
a product with their hard earned money that
doesn't poison them!  Seems like a fair trade
The Picky Wick
These amazing standards were set forth when The
Picky Wick was Sin City Candle Co. and have only
gotten better!  The original owners, Dave and
Nexie Rose created a foundation on which to build
and it's a mission I continue to seek
wholeheartedly.  As a way to thank them for what
they began a candle in their name, "The Rose" is
a staple scent.  When purchased a percent of the
proceeds is saved and  will be given to a charity
of their choice every year.   I hope you enjoy
these little guys as much as I enjoy making them
- from my home to yours!
