I could not wait to get these tea light candles because I was curious about what would make them so special. Well I just opened the iherb box, and then the candle box. I noticed 3 things right away. One, I noticed that the candles were a buttery yellow instead of a waxy white. The second thing I noticed was that the "wax" was velvety, smooth and more like an firm oil that a hard and waxy substance. The third thing I noticed was that it looked larger than what I was used to. When I pulled out the tea light candles I'm currently using to compare, I saw that yes, even though the tea lights were the same diameter, the new one from this company was twice the height. I also noticed that the newly purchased tea lights had a craftsman-like quality and were more substantial. This makes me believe that the producer of this candle cares about the product. It also makes it easier to believe that they are a fair trade product in which the workers are paid a decent wage, work under humane conditions and have benefits -- like it says on the package and on the iherb website. I feel as though the workers care about the product too and that that care has arrived in my home, in my hands. I plan to use these candles for aromatherapy via use of a essential oil burner/diffuser. I also plan to burn these tea lights in my salt crystal candle holders. So, the care of the company and its workers has turned into the care of my mental health, and physical and spiritual well-being. The ambient glow of light, the ability to gain 60 hours of burning from one box of these candles translates to the potential for 60 hours of peace, calm, and joy. I in turn can share this with the public and the care continues.
This has a much shorter burn time than the less eco-friendly tea lites - so I'm not sure if these are actually better for the environment if I need to stock more, burn more, and have more shipped to my home. Also no matter which way I trimmed the wick - it would either be too short or too long and resulted in either too big a flame or a flame that would keep going out.

never going back to chemical wax candles again. burn clean and when the flame goes out, no smell. completely neutral scent.
I keep reordering these!

I'm not overly educated about tea lights, but can't stand the smell of regular candles, and worry about petroleum chemical toxicity, so have gone to candles made from other ingredients. Burn long and well, no pungent odour and the fact I keep buying more says it all
buy white color candles, they lasts longer
