Dear Isle of Candles,
Caught my husband in my soy lotion candle this weekend treating a cat scratch from the neighbor’s cat. That explains the lovely “Fresh Crisp Linen” smell of my husband. Do you have soy candles with no fragrance for those manly men so they don’t have to sneak around in my candles?

Dear Cat Scratched,
Not only do we have Fragrance Free” candles we also have a candle called “JUST FOR HIM.” It is a men’s cologne. And we have “BLUE WATER” which is the men’s cologne, “Cool Water.”

What a great idea from Good Housekeeping magazine! Fill a glass bowl or vase halfway with colorful conversation heart candies. Nestle pillar candles into the candies, twisting until they stand securely. Light and enjoy.

No More Cracked Fingers!

“This is the first product my husband has used that has prevented the skin on his fingers from cracking when the cold weather begins. Normally he has lived through the winter with Neosporin and Band-Aids on most of his fingers. This has been a wonderful discovery!”
–Jerrie T., NC

Set your table this Thanksgiving with some homespun craftiness. We love thrifty ideas and we think Good Housekeeping had a good one in their November 2010 issue.

This fall keep your eyes open for old cheese graters at yard sales. Group several together on a tray, with a votive or tealight candle inside each one. Adorn the tray and the cheese graters with autumnal flowers, leaves, pinecones, etc for a terrific display. Light the candles for a holiday twinkle that will warm your heart and scent your dining room.

Pawleys Island, SC –Isle of Candles has recently combined its retail store and candle factory. Still located in the Pawleys Island Hammock Shops Village, the retail store is now only steps away from its original location.

“We always encourage shoppers to take a dip into our soy lotion candles and soon we will also invite them to take a peek into our candle factory,” says Isle of Candles owner, Kathy Miller.

The retail store and candle factory existed for years in separate buildings. Now that the store and factory are under the same roof, customers will soon have an opportunity to look through a window into the factory and watch the soy lotion candles being made.

Come explore our new store location.

Come explore our new store location.


This full-service candle store is most known for the hand-crafted soy lotion candles produced in the on-site factory. To use the soy candles as a luxurious lotion, simply burn the candle until the pool of soy reaches the container’s edge. Then extinguish the flame and safely dip a finger into the melted soy oil. The soy lotion leaves skin feeling silky smooth. Naturally rich in vitamin E, Isle of Candles’ soy lotion candles are natural skin moisturizers and have been known to relieve eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and insect bites and diminish the appearance of scars. Soy candles burn longer, cleaner and cooler than regular paraffin wax candles. They are good for the environment and Isle of Candles’ soy lotion candles are good for use on your skin. This store is also gaining popularity with the memory candles it makes from their customers’ flowers. These everlasting memory candles are a beautiful way to forever treasure a floral bouquet from a special occasion, such as weddings and memorial services.

Isle of Candles is open daily. For more information or to shop online, visit www.isleofcandles.com. The Hammock Shops Village is located at 10880 Ocean Highway.

“We were so blessed to find the soy ball at Isle of Candles. My mother’s heel was almost raw from pushing herself up in the bed. We started using the soy ball every night and her heel is doing great. We are so happy to know the healing power of the soy ball.”
–Martha B.

Great for your feet, soy lotion balls are fragrance free and last a long time. (mine lasted a whole year)

Did you know that Isle of Candles can turn almost any glass container into a soy lotion candle? We turn wine glasses, tea cups, terra cotta pots and more into soy lotion candles. It only costs $1.25 per ounce.

To Clean Your Candle Container
The easiest way to clean your old candle containers is to pour out the melted soy oil (or wax) before it solidifies again. Then, you can usually wipe the jar clean with a paper towel.

If your wick is spent and there is soy or wax build up in the candle, get out the hairdryer. Not just for hair anymore, hairdryers are excellent sources of heat to melt away candle remains that won’t burn any longer.

Recycle the Soy Lotion Candles You Bought from the Isle
We also encourage you to bring back the glass candle containers you buy at our store so we can refill them for you. The 11 oz candles are $18.99 on the shelf. We can refill them for $13.75.

We have customers who ship boxes filled with empty glass jars to us for an annual refilling. We especially love to refill candle containers from other companies.

Each container must hold at least 4 ounces and you can pick and choose your refill fragrances at will.

Your favorite candlemaker was on television…again! If you know Ken (a.k.a. “Buddy”), you likely know he is the Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball team’s #1 fan. And the local news got hold of him again.

And if you have recently been in our retail store and received a postcard from us, turn it over–there is a picture of Ken busy at work in the candle factory.
