Ostara Organics Candle and Tarts {Review/Sponsor Spotlight} #GivingGreen


Because what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put in it!


I have enjoyed my interaction with Cheyenne, the creator of Ostara Organics, over the last year. I worked with her at the beginning of the year; you can read my review HERE.  Well, we have teamed up again to bring you another review {and fabulous giveaway}!


First, a little about Ostara Organics:


ALL of Ostara’s products are soy-based, natural, and locally produced… Our soy is NON GMO certified-it is also Kosher Certified, and G.R.A.S. Certified (generally recognized as safe) by the F.D.A. ALL of Ostara’s Products are individually artisan-crafted, with the direct support of local emerging talent, to support community growth and unique abilities, especially in women and young women.


Ostara Organics uses soy because is does not emit toxins while burning (candles), emits an very small amount of soot, is biodegradable, is a renewable resource, and supports US farmers and our own economic growth. Soy wax burns at cooler temperatures than paraffin wax which makes the natural soy candles burn 50% longer than paraffin candles. Natural soy candles candles clean up easy with soap and water.



I was sent two 2oz candles: Warm Chai and Pumpkin Pie, and 3 sets of 6.5oz scented tarts: two Cinnamon Rolls and a Holiday Wassail. Can you say YUM? Everything smells absolutely wonderful! The candles and tarts are made with non-GMO soy, natural and essential fragrance oils, and a cotton wick {for the candle}.  As soon as I got my candles I lit the Pumpkin Pie. My whole kitchen smelled like a freshly bakes pumpkin pie within minutes. I haven’t had a chance to use the tarts but Ostara has yet to disappoint me! I love using candles and tarts, especially during the fall and winter. I think my house feels more inviting and comfortable when it smells sweet!



You can buy these soy fall scented products on Ostara’s website. The 2 oz candles are $5 and the 6.5oz tarts are $5. Ostara carries a wide variety of products so check them out for this holiday season! The candles and tarts are currently available in fall scents including apple pie, spiced pear, red currant and more. They would make great stocking stuffers this Christmas!
