What's better than being greeted by a rush of fresh scent as you enter your home after a restless day of work, errands or children? For the girls at bella vita- nothing. We love how a great scented candle can make our homes feel cleaner than they really are, boost our energy after a long day or promote relaxation when our "me time" is long overdue.

Our favorite jar candle is the all natural Southern Soy Scents hand poured by a sweet couple in Marion, AR. Crystal and Stan strive to create fresh, clean scents that will warm your heart, all while remaining environmentally responsible. We believe they have accomplished that and more! Southern Soy Scents boasts an array of inspiring scents such as guava, tomato leaf and red current; not to mention bella vita's best seller, Chai Tea. With one breath of Chai Tea you are transported to your favorite coffeehouse.

Southern Soy Scents use 100% soy wax which means that your candle will burn 3 times longer (180+ hours) than petroleum based candles (paraffin wax based), be virtually soot free and have a stronger fragrance than traditional candles. Since soy is a common ingredient in skin care products, you can use the cooling wax as a body moisturizer! If you can't wait any longer to get your hands on a Southern Soy Scent, visit our website here to order one today! If you are in the Memphis area, we have plenty in the store and we would love to see you!
