The Melted Bean
Meet Angie and Naly! They are the owners of The Melted Bean (TMB), a small business that makes hand-poured soy candles. Angie and Naly started TMB back in August of 2015, with the intentions that the revenue would be used to help pay Angie’s student loan debt (the girl loves to learn!). They are dedicated to excellent customer service and take a great pride in making a high quality hand-crafted product.
The Melted Bean specializes in uniquely scented hand-poured candles made with eco-friendly and sustainable materials. Each hand poured candle is made with an all-natural soy wax, a cotton wick, cork lined lid and comes in a reusable glass container. We strongly believe in a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” philosophy, which is reflected in our products as well as our minimalist approach to packaging. Our fragrances have been carefully selected to cover a wide range of tastes that span from floral to savory to fruity to crisp.
Derived from soy beans, soy wax is a biodegradable, clean burning and renewable material that continues to gain popularity because of the many benefits it offers. Compared to paraffin wax, soy wax can hold a larger amount of fragrance, has a lower melting point which creates a stronger scent throw and burns three times longer. The biodegradable properties of soy wax make it easy to clean with soap and water. The production of soy wax is completely renewable and the U.S. grows the vast majority of the world’s soy beans encouraging growth in the agricultural economy.
After a lot of testing, we finally fell in love. Our cotton wicks are a coreless, non-directional, flat braided wick with paper filament throughout. They are coated with a natural wax coating making them perfect for soy candles. Our cotton wicks are self-trimming and designed to promote a consistent burning flame.
This one is simple. We carefully selected fragrances that would work well independently and together. We also stayed away from traditional scents found in big box stores. A few of our oils contain a higher percent of vanilla that will turn yellow over time. This is natural because we don’t use additional additives to prevent the discoloration.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. The possibilities are endless but if you are experiencing a creative block, head over to Pinterest.
