Why We Pour Only Bayberry, Beeswax and Organic Rice Wax...
At Santa Barbara Coastal Candles, we offer clean-burning, healthy, luxurious, hand-poured alternatives to non-sustainable, inexpensive candles derived from a GMO, use of Hexane (soy wax) or petroleum product (paraffin).
We provide high-quality waxes from long-standing, family-owned, ethically sourced bee-keepers and other non-GMO, environmentally conscientious and sustainable producers.
Santa Barbara Coastal Candles continuously strives to protect people, animals, and the planet by hand-selecting and pouring the most honorably-sourced and safest ingredients.
A few words about soy wax; our extensive research and that of others has shown that a chemical process that uses HEXANE is used to convert soybeans, (whether organic soybeans or not) into a soy wax. This process makes it impossible for soy bean WAX to be labeled, "organic".
Soy WAX is not natural; soybean crops are being planted in the fertile land that was once the beautiful Savannah and Amazon Rainforest (which is being destroyed, along with all of its inhabitants for soybean production); BOTH plant and animal life are at risk.

"I love Santa Barbara coastal candles! They have such high quality wax and the scents are amazing. I have a different scent in each room to set the vibe or switch them around depending on my mood. The mica inside adds a gorgeous shimmery effect when they burn!"
Angie (Santa Barbara)
"Santa Barbara Coastal Candles make such gorgeous, high quality candles and are so quintessentially Santa Barbaran, especially with the sea glass. Each candle is unique and beautifully made; you can tell that a lot of heart went into crafting each one and they don’t disappoint. They last forever (don’t be fooled by their size), and burn clean as well. Their scents are also incredible: Garden by the Sea and Channel Island Mist are refreshing and divine, and I can’t live without Eucalyptus Lane!"
