Recently I have become absolutely addicted to prize candles. I have tried several different brands, and I LOVE them all. One of the most unique prize candles I’ve seen is Precious Gem Candles. These prize candles do not contain rings, earrings, or necklaces; they contain loose gem stones.
I recently got the orange creme and a tropical papaya Precious Gem Candles. I love these highly fragrant candles because they made from an all-natural and clean burning soy wax blend. What that means is that is safe to have in your home and there will be no black stuff every where.
Why is soy wax better than paraffin wax you may ask? Well I asked the same question when I started reviewing Precious Gem Candles and the Jewelry In Candles tarts I reviewed before. Here is what I found in my research. Candles that are made from paraffin wax contain petroleum, and when burned the petroleum smoke/exhaust can contaminate the air we (and our children) breath with toxic carcinogens. If you ask me, that is kind of scary.
Not only are Precious Gem Candles safe to have around your home, but they smell AWESOME too. I have to say that the Orange Creme, with it’s blend of orange sorbet and vanilla ice cream scents, it really does smell like a creamsicle. The Tropical Papaya, reminds me of Tropical Twist gum from Trident. Both of the candles smell AWESOME!!
When getting to your prize, you will need to have some patience. For me, the orange creme candle took about 6 hours of burn time to get to the gem, and the tropical papaya took about 4 hours. The burn time may be different for you, it just depends on where they have placed your gem.
