I’m delighted to introduce you to bug, bear & bean. Our premium soy candles are made with clean products and are poured using a unique, 5 hour slow pour technique ensuring a throughly fragranced candle. Our candles are free of toxins, carcinogens, phthalates and lead. Instead, they’re filled with USA-grown soy, strong scents, and lots of love

Specifically Soy

Soy is Healthier for You and Your Family.

Soy candles are plant-based and natural. Unlike paraffin wax candles, they are free of toxins, carcinogens, and phthalates. When you use soy candles, lungs big and small can breathe with ease.

Soy Candles Support American Farmers.

America is one of the top soy-producing countries in the world. As such, soy candles are often made using soy that is grown and produced by American farmers.

I’m a Problem Solver…

After making the switch to clean soy candles for the health benefits, I was disappointed to find that many didn’t smell as strong as paraffin wax candles. In October 2018, just five weeks after my youngest daughter was born, I tried to solve this problem and I poured my first batch of candles. They were terrible.

After A LOT of trial and error, I managed to create a five-hour slow pour technique that creates candles with the level of fragrance I love!

…a Candle Maker…

Although I had my technique figured out, I knew a good pour meant nothing without good ingredients. For creating my candles, I chose to use soy that is grown in the USA, wicks that are lead free and fragrance oils that are infused with essential oils and free of toxic phthalates.

After spending countless late nights in my kitchen filling candle orders, I found myself running out of space to work. So in March 2021, I opened my first store front!

...and a Small-Business Woman.

What started as selling candles to close family and friends in 2019 is now a successful business with both online and physical stores -- where I get to provide the larger bug, bear & bean family with quality candles. The overwhelming support for my business has been nothing short of incredible, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve my community again, this time as a craftsperson. 

Soy is Healthier for Our Planet.

Paraffin wax is unsustainable and toxic, which contributes to climate change. In contrast, soy candles are renewable, biodegradable, and carbon-neutral, which makes Mother Nature smile.

Soy Candles Burn Longer.

Candles made of soy have a lower melting point, so they can burn up to 50% longer than candles made of paraffin wax. With each candle you buy, you’re getting more burn for your buck!
