We received Countrytrail Soy Candles in exchange for this post. All opinions and our love for soy candles remain our own.
Candles flicker at my house.
They soothe after a long day.
They fill our home with an aroma that carries us away to memories or places inspired by the scent.
We’ve been burning Countrytrail Soy Candles Orange Clove and the smell carries us into autumn.
When we received the Countrytrail Soy Candle, simplicity is the first thing I noticed.
I love simplistic. The candle is poured by hand into a glass jar, reminiscent of a mason jar.
It has a screw-on lid and a very plain label. I appreciate this.
My candle also came with Candle Burning Tips and Tricks.
I found these very interesting and as often as we are burning candles, I was surprised that many I hadn’t considered.
Candle Burning Tips and Tricks:
The tips and tricks begin with lighting your candle for the first time:
It is very important to allow approximately one hour of burn time per inch of surface diameter, or until your candle has a complete melt pool before extinguishing.
Trim Your Wicks:
Use a sharp wick trimmer or scissors to trim the wick; using a dull tool will split the threads causing the wick to mushroom excessively.
Countrytrail Soy Candles are designed to be trimmed to 1/4″ before each burn.

Never Blow the wick, DIP IT!
If you blow out the flame to extinguish the candle, it will cause the wick to smoke, ruining a delightful aroma in your room and may cause soot to cling to the warm rim of the jar.
Using a wick dipper will eliminate your candle from smoking when extinguishing your flame.
Countrytrail Soy Candles is the product of research, formulating and testing that was spawned by a shopping trip to Lancaster, where founder, Karen Zemitis, purchased a soy candle making kit.
It was the answer to her wanting to quit her full-time pharmacy technician job and be a stay-at-home mom.
That was back in 2005.
It continues to grow, between September and December of 2009, Zemitis sold more than 2,700 candles at fundraisers, donating a portion to charity.
Our candle has an incredible fragrance and burns clean.
It is relaxing and the perfect way to end a day. It offers light, a delicious scent, and ambiance that are all quality.
Countrytrail Soy Candles are available in a variety of scents, including holiday favorites, delivered to your door and offer the beauty of simplicity. They would make great gifts for yourself or for anyone on your list.
