Company founder Pete Evick soon found that, within the candle world, he could be part of helping stimulate the American economy. Furthermore, he could contribute to the American farming industry by using soy wax as opposed to the most common candle making wax, known as paraffin. While that alone was enough to justify the switch to soy, learning that soy wax is also clean burning and non-toxic was just as important a reason to utilize soy. Supporting our country and our environment at the same time? You just canŠ—Èt go wrong.

Next came the choice to use a wood wick instead of the traditional cotton wick. The wood wick crackles like wood in a fireplace (or campfire) and provides an incredibly relaxing vibe. While there are several wood wick candles and even more soy candles on the market today, the combination of soy and wood wick is rare due to complications that arise from being able to achieve a perfect burn pool when the two are combined. Evick was up to the challenge and called on Phil Niemerg of Candle Art to develop the perfect wick. After months of research and development the team discovered the right formula and Shining Sol was born.

The passion for candle-making grows every day with Shining Sol. The desire to continue making the best candles in the world is our only priority. Our production team continues to innovate design and improve the candle-making process, and our creative team works nonstop to come up with new exciting scents and colors, all along remaining a hand-made product of the USA.
