We often get people asking us what the difference is between "big brand" candles (such as Yankee Candle and Nest Fragrances) and ours. The most apparent difference of our candles is that they are handcrafted in small batches, ensuring the finest quality of every candle made.
The second difference is most often the type of wax used. All LeafBird candles are made with 100% soy wax. Most of the "big brand" candle manufacturers, typically make their candles with either all paraffin wax - or a blend of paraffin wax and vegetable-based candle waxes. By using a 100% soy wax candle by LeafBird, you'll experience the following key differences:
Other key differences, in our opinion, include a ban on the use of phthalates in any of our fragrance oils. Many experts believe phthalates are harmful and potentially toxic when burned. The "big brand" candle manufacturers typically won't ban the use of phthalates, as using fragrance oils without them adds cost to the materials used in making the candles.
Lastly, we take a clear stand on banning the use of any supplier, ingredient or product in our soy wax candles that use animal testing. Next time your shopping for candles, ask if they have a clear policy on the use of animal testing with their product and you'll be surprised.
We believe you'll love our candles, as much as we love making them. We invite you to try for yourself and discover our collection.

As a small business, we know how important it is to listen to our customers, and obtain feedback on preferences, as well as customer wants/needs.
Over the last year, we heard loud and clear that while many of our customers loved our candles, they wanted a candle design that would complement their homes better. We also learned that many of our candles are given as gifts, and the packaging is an important part of the gift-giving experience.
