More about Simply Roma

Simply Roma is our new organic goods line, which like Joy Beadz, provides jobs for Roma women. Our ladies are currently making soy candles which smell lovely and have many awesome features which are described below. Please continue to watch our site as new Simply Roma organic products are on their way!

Features of Simply Roma candles

All of our candles are made using 100% soy wax, these offer the following advantages over most paraffin wax based candles on the market:
* Look and smell the same as equivalent paraffin candles
* The fumes are non toxic and much safer to breathe in (no carcinogens, etc.)
* Burn cleaner (less soot collecting on the jar/can and walls or other surfaces in your home)
* Soybean based wax burns slower and at a cooler temperature, which means candles lasts up to 30-50% longer
* As they burn slower, the scent is retained better and is released more gradually, creating a more pleasant atmosphere (no overwhelming scents)
* Soy wax is also biodegradable and benefits the environment...

What comes in the Package?

You will receive your candle with a small decorative gift bag and a card with a picture of the lady who made your it, and their personal story. As with Joy Beadz, we encourage you to keep the card that came with your candle, on your fridge or somewhere memorable, so you can pray for her & the struggles she faces everyday. 

Below are some pictures of the candle making process and one the ladies who make them. To browse our Simply Roma products you can click on Products at the top of the page, or the link here.
