Shevil Develjan is the mastermind behind The Good Soy. An astute academic, she completed her Master’s degree in Health and Rehab Sciences and ventured into a PhD. After a rough third year of study, she decided to take a leave of absence, using the time to focus on her mental health. She found remedy in the calm art of craft, working with essential oils. She began to remove all scented products from her home, including air fresheners and perfumes, after learning how hazardous chemicals release toxins into the air, which leads to health problems. She started making products with 100% natural ingredients and pure essential oils, allowing her customers to share therapeutic benefits.
Shevil’s candles come in classic and ballroom vessels, with the ball room vessel offering more elegant cuts of glass. Each classic vessel is topped with a cork lid. All candles are hand poured in Toronto. Below are some therapeutic candles Good Soy offers, for more information visit: https://thegoodsoy.com/collections

To get the most from your candles, here are a few tricks:
When lighting your candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt to the edge of the container, for 2 to 4 hours. This prevents “memory rings” and tunnelling. Light candles on even surfaces to allow for an even burn.
Try not to burn your candle for longer than 4 hours each time, and let it cool for 2 hours between each burn.
Remember to keep the wick trimmed to 1/4” to prevent mushrooming, soot build up, and slower burns. The most important point: Don’t leave a burning candle unattended or within reach of flammable objects, children or pets.
