Custom Scented Candles, Anyone?

The temperatures have been a bit toasty here in Montana and I’ve been taking refuge during the hottest portion of the day in the studio. All of the daily orders were complete, the studio had been cleaned, so what’s a girl to do next? Play with wax, of course!

I decided I needed some new wax melts and it seems I always return to raspberry (see our post from Sept 2017). This time I made a raspberry lime blend – A-MAZ-ING!!! The raspberry is sweet with a slight tartness and the lime adds this citrus punch that cannot be ignored. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Why limit yourself to the standard fragrances we offer when you can combine 2 or 3 to make something amazing like toasted marshmallow, almond and fudge brownie for the ultimate rocky road?

Some suggestions:

  • cucumber & lime
  • coffee bean & almond
  • blueberry & peach
  • vanilla, pumpkin & cinnamon
  • toasted marshmallow & coconut
  • fresh cut grass & rain
  • candy cane, sugar cookies & christmas tree
  • eucalyptus & garden mint
  • cherry & fudge brownie

The possibilities are nearly endless. Create yours today.

Getting Organized!

Introducing our new downloadable planners.

If you’re even a little like me when it comes to keeping track of your life, you know finding the right planner can be a challenge. After years [decades] of searching and using versions that were beautiful, but only so-so in functionality, I finally decided to put my graphic design skills to use for my planner life.

Each of the planners we offer is a complete set of pages ready to print at your convenience. The PDF file is yours to keep and use as often as you would like for personal use.

Our planners each have the same basic elements:
1. monthly calendar page
2. weekly calendar pages
3. meal planning
4. monthly tasks
5. weekly tasks

Planner 1.0 is a graphic rich planner that builds on the basic design elements.

Planner 2.0 is a color rich planner that will brighten any day you need to tackle. The basic design is the same from version to version, but the colorway is what makes each version unique. If you like the colors of the tropics or the busy city, we’ve got a colorway for you.

Each style can be used for a particular month or printed 12 times for an entire year’s worth of planner pages.

Take a look at our complete selection to help organize your day, and for a limited time, save 50% on any design.  Coupon Code: PLAN50

News from the Candle Studio


We’re experiencing a true fall this year. Often in Montana, we go straight from summer to winter, but this year we are enjoying beautiful average temperatures. We have crisp 40° mornings and warm 60° days turning into beautiful evenings pleasant enough to enjoy outside by candlelight and fire pit.

The slow changing of the seasons is one of the things I’m grateful for this year. I adore spending time outside in the morning and evenings relaxing on the deck. I can often be found there with my favorite warm beverage and a great smelling candle. During these leisurely moments on the candle studio’s deck I prefer to take care of the business side of Soy Works Candle Company. While I would like to believe that I’m going to invent something as great as sliced bread during these moments, instead it’s when I think of improvements & great offers to bring to you.

One of these improvements is the ability to review all products on our website. Even though we’ve made candles since 2000 and have been selling them since 2001 we’ve never given you the ability to review them. The main reason is technology just wasn’t on our side. Reviews were something big stores and big companies had access to and small business owners simply couldn’t afford the option. Well, at least until a few years ago. So why did it take us so long to jump on the bandwagon? Simply because scent is subjective. What I like may not be what you like and what you like may not be what others like. I wasn’t sure that reviewing scents would make sense, but then I realized the power of other people’s opinions. If you’ve enjoyed our candles, please take a moment and share your experiences with us. The ability to review each candle scent is located on the product page for that certificate

Another item that used to be limited to big stores is digital gift certificates. We are excited to introduce digital gift certificates to Soy Works Candle Company. These gift certificates can be given in any amount to anyone with an email address. You can email them to yourself to be given away later or email them directly to the recipient. Gift certificates are great for the hard to buy for, the picky and just anyone who loves candles and melts.

If you follow our blog you know that we often test new fragrances. For the last few months we’ve been working on some new Christmas and winter scents. I can say that it was interesting to have the candle studios smell like a Christmas tree in August but it was sure worth it. Take a look at the new scents of cinnamon spruce, bayberry black forest, and bonfire bliss. They will not disappoint.


Don’t forget to take advantage of the current deal we’re offering, which is 50% off all candles in the winter and holiday department. To get your discount use coupon code holiday50. While supplies aren’t limited, the coupon code is. Be sure to use it before 12/01/2016.

That’s all the news from the candle studio today; I think I’m headed outside to the deck. Be sure to take some time soon to slow down and enjoy your favorite space before the hustle of the holidays is upon us.

All the best,
Heather Gunsch
