The DVD includes safety tips from the National Fire and Protection Association and a 30-minute segment on components and making a soy candle.
A “play all” or “scene section” button is available for the “components and making a soy candle” segment, and the DVD has special graphics, close-ups and time-lapses.
The 30-minute "Making a Soy Candle" segment begins with an introduction and history of candles and delves into the benefits of soy wax, wax melting methods, soy waxes, fragrances and essential oils, dyes, wicks, wick adhesion and wick centering tools, jars, adhesives, additives and challenges of working with soy wax. Following the introduction, Falco takes readers through the steps of creating a lavender soy candle with dye and fragrance oil.
There's also a separate segment called "As Green As It Gets", in which Falco teaches viewers how to make all natural soy candles with soy wax, essential oils and recycled glass.
Falco introduces some tips for making and burning soy candles and in bonus segments, there’s an interview with Falco, a feature on selling soy candles at CenterPoint Houston and some fun bloopers.
Viewers raved over the DVD’s features.

Geoff Hoff of Los Angeles, a writer, actor and coach, JosephCoaler.com, said he became familiar with the candles several years ago at a “body-mind” event.
