Hi, my name is Nicole Foster and I am the proud owner of Continental Wax Works. When my husband and I had our son in 2015, I wanted to make sure I got rid of all of the harmful chemicals in my home. Little did I know, the paraffin candles that I was burning daily were made from a petroleum byproduct. I began to research healthier candles and I found a few companies selling candles made out of natural soybean wax. Unfortunately, these companies had poor quality candles that didn't provide the fragrance experience I was hoping for. I began to experiment with making my own candles and giving them to friends and family. The positive feedback I received was so overwhelming that my new hobby quickly grew into a business.
Today, Continental Wax Works has grown into a 1,600 square foot retail store in our hometown of North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Through our growing wholesale division, many of our products are available at other fine retailers, also. We use only 100% natural soybean wax, natural fiber wicks, and the highest quality fragrance oils available. Best of all, soy wax burns cleaner, cooler, and longer than the dangerous petroleum-based paraffin wax that most candle companies use. Continental Wax Works is proud to use environmentally sustainable, renewable, soybean products that support American farmers!
