Twilight Candles Review and Giveaway

I know i've told you how much I love candles and other scented treats but until last week, I never realized the kind of soot burns off of a regular candle!  My fiance and I were painting a house for a friend of mine and there was a thick black film of soot covering the ceiling, corners and tops of windows.  The people that previously lived there had lit a lot of candles during their stay in this house and it showed!  Not only was it extremely unattractive but it was a pain in the butt to get clean!  I was intrigued by Twilight Candles because of the fact that they are soy candles.  Soy candles are known to burn very cleanly.  You don't have to worry about the soot on your walls and ceilings and even more importantly in the air you breathe everyday!  Here are a few examples of their candles:

What is Twilight Candles?
 Twilight Candles is a small business owned by a husband and wife team in Maryland.  They make 100% Soy Candles from the comfort of their home.  They hand pour each candle using only natural wax manufactured from soybeans.  Their candles do not contain paraffin. With so many people using scented candles now, it's nice to see a healthier alternative to regular scented candles.  These 100% Soy candles burn cleanly and with a refreshingly light scent, these candles will become a must have in your home, just as they have in mine!  Each candle comes in a unique jar perfect for display in any room of your home.  They even feature a "Create Your Own Candle" section of their site where you can customize your very own candle!  You pick what jar the candle is stored in, what color the candle is and even the scent!  With scents like "Amberglow", "Sage", and "Lily" you will always find the perfect scent for any occasion.  I love to shop with small business more than larger ones because of the one-on-one time you get with employees and the store owners.  Twilight Candles is no different.  Customer Service is key and that is exactly how it should be!

So what do I think?
I received two candles to review from Twilight Candles.  The first was a beautiful gingerbread scented candle in a trendy Mexican Talavera cup shown here.  These retail for $12. 

As well as a beautiful Large 16oz Soy Candle, shown here, in Spiced Cider scent. These retail for $14 or 2 for $25.

 I loved these candles so much, I used them up almost right away!  I noticed the air seemed cleaner and the scent wasn't overpowering like some air fresheners can be.  It was a very pleasant, light scent that filled the room fairly quickly.  The glass jars that held the candles became very useful after the candle was done.  I can't think of one con when it comes to these wonderful candles!

So where can you purchase your own Twilight Candle?
There are two ways to purchase your very own Twilight Candle.  You can visit their website, Twilight Candle Shop and view their online selection and place an order there or if you live in the Montgomery County, Maryland area you can select a pick up option to save on shipping charges!  For everyone else shipping is only $10 and only within the United States.  Be sure to check out their great clearance items  as well as all the other quality products they sell.  Remember, these are 100% Soy Candles and they're also 100% Guarenteed!
