LoveSpoon Candles is A High Quality, Handmade Soy Candles Company. Its name was derived from a Welsh LoveSpoon. In Wales, a LoveSpoon is a wooden spoon decoratively carved that was traditionally presented as the best wedding gift that ultimately symbolized romantic intent. The spoon is normally decorated with symbols of love, and was intended to reflect the skill of the carver. Due to the intricate designs, LoveSpoons are no longer used as functioning spoons and are now decorative craft items that serve as wonderful housewarming gifts, wedding gifts, or gifts for women.
Additionally, Lovespoon Candles are 100% soy and have wood or eco-wicks that are made of cotton. Soy Candles are known to be clean burning without the release of chemicals like traditional paraffin waxes. At LoveSpoon Candles you can choose from the Cornerstone Collection that encompass their decorative tins with wood wicks that burn with a crackling sound. Or you can select our elegant colored glass jar with a cotton eco-wick from their Monogram Series. Lovespoon also gives back to others in need and donates a generous amount to a chosen charity at the end of each year.
