anatomy of


the process

Wine bottles are collected and processed from wineries, bars, and restaurants in Ohio – offered as a free and cost saving service to ensure that they don’t end up in landfills!

These bottles are then cut, sanded, cleaned, and filled by hand with 100% Soy Wax for the cleanest and longest burning candle available – lasts 50% longer than a paraffin equivalent!


Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make certain plastics softer, more flexible and less fragile. There are over 20 different types of phthalates that are commonly used in hundreds of products – and they are very widely used in fragrances!

The greatest concern is the way phthalates adversely affect reproductive organs and hormones, especially in prepubescent males. Some have been linked to breast and other cancers, allergies, obesity, thyroid, and other hormonal disruptions.

That being said, if we can avoid this chemical compound, we ought to! This is why Foertmeyer & Sons Candles do not contain any Phthalates whatsoever :)

Soy Wax burns cleaner and longer than traditional paraffin – which is known to be a carcinogenic petroleum product. The photos to the left show the difference between our 100% Soy Candles and the leading competitor which we will name here, only as Crankee Candle. The same soot which you see coating the side container of the Crankee Candle is the same soot that will coat walls it is close to, your homes air filter, and the lungs of the people in your family. By comparison, our Foertmeyer Candle leaves no soot deposit because it is a clean burning vegetable derived wax. In addition, our 12oz Swircle candle burns over twice as long as a 14.5oz Crankee Candle.
