A Los Angeles Based Soy Candle Company Promotes A More Healthful Candle Burning Experience

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2004 – Nomine Candles has created a unique line of aromatherapy pillars and botanical jars that not only promote a more healthful candle burning experience but offer a distinct European aesthetic that compliments any home.

Nomine Candles are made with 100% natural wax made with soybeans and botanical oils. They are free of petroleum byproducts, additives and synthetic fragrance. Nomine uses only 100% cotton wicks. Unlike paraffin, soy candles produce virtually no black soot to ruin walls and furnishings. Soy wax is American grown and a renewable resource. It cleans up easily with soap and warm water and is biodegradable.

Nomine Candles offers a healthy alternative to traditional synthetic fragrance by using only aromatherapy grade essential oil blends derived from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. With an increasing number of people suffering from allergies and headaches due to synthetic fragrance, Nomine’s essential oil blends offer a more subtle and clean aroma. All Nomine Candles are hand-poured in small batches for quality assurance.

Nancy Covello, owner and candle maker, was motivated to create this all natural candle line from a personal commitment to alternative health therapies and a longstanding vegetarian lifestyle. Nancy comments on her motivation, “I was concerned when my walls became black with soot from paraffin candles. I immediately sought to find an alternative. However, many soy candle companies were producing products that aesthetically weren’t as pleasing to the eye as their paraffin counterparts. My goal with Nomine was to try and make a candle that had the best of both worlds, health and style.”

Inspired by the stories and pictures of her Italian ancestors, Nomine Candles evoke the scents, moods and the nostalgic images of the Italian countryside. Nomine (pronounced

Noh-mi-neh) simply means “name” in Latin and was chosen to celebrate the power of the meaning behind names.
