Scented Soy Wax Candles, Melts and Luxury Bath Blasts.  Hand Poured and Hand Made in beautiful Heber Springs, Arkansas

PONDEROSA BLISS  is located in the beautiful Ozark Mountain town of Heber Springs, AR. We love being able to bring our amazing products to others and take pride in creating natural products which have long lasting scents.  The ingredients used in our scented soy wax candles and organic coconut bath blasts are of the highest quality and our candle wicks are 100% braided cotton. Our soy wax is made from American grown soy beans and our products are environmentally safe and at an affordable price. 

THE BENEFITS OF SOY CANDLES: Our candle store carries soy wax candles because they're cleaner burning - no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. Soy wax has no petrol carbon soot like  petroleum based paraffin candles.  Soy wax is longer lasting - it burns cooler which means it lasts 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.   Our candles are dye free - most candle dyes contain benzene, which is another chemical that you don’t want in your air.  Soy wax is biodegradable - wax spills can be cleaned up with soap and hot water - and the glass container can be recycled.

REUSABLE GLASSWARE & CLASSIC JARS:  Don’t let this be the only time you enjoy your crystal glassware or classic mason jars. To reuse, once the candle melts down and the wick no longer burns, remove the wick and as much wax as possible with a spoon.  Or, place in a warm oven (170 degrees) for a few minutes and the wick will slide off.  Wash the container with warm soapy water and enjoy!

My Story

Having spent over 36 years in the corporate world and wondering if this is what life’s really about, I finally had enough of the twelve hour work days and pointless rounds of meetings. It was time to make a break, escape the rat race and do something better. I retired and my husband and I sold our condo, packed our bags and literally ran from the big city to the beautiful small Ozark town of Heber Springs, AR. The slow pace took a bit of getting used to but I finally found my own way and started doing something I love - making natural soy candles and scented bath blasts (mini bath bombs). Oh yes, this is how I roll!

I’ve always been a huge candle lover but it was after reading an article on the dangers of burning traditional paraffin wax candles at home that I started to investigate the soy wax alternative. During that research I had a bit of a ‘Eureka’ moment and thought I’d make my own using natural soy wax produced from American grown soybeans. The soy wax candles were a huge hit and before long I was making them for family and friends. That’s when I decided to make a business of it and (drum roll) ... PONDEROSA BLISS was born! This name came about because my parents called the homestead where my sisters and I grew up "The Ponderosa". The Ponderosa was such a comforting "blissful" place for my family and me soooo ... you get the picture  : ) 

I take pride in the fact that all of my products are carefully produced by hand in my home workshop and not mass produced. Ponderosa Bliss has several fabulous fragrances to choose from and I’m convinced that you’ll enjoy our amazing products as much as my family and I have!

With Warm Regards,

Our Process of Product Making

At Ponderosa Bliss, candle making is more than a labor of love! So many variables come into play in the process … our soy wax is melted at precise temperatures so the wax and fragrance are adequately fused. The wax is allowed to cool to just the right temperature for pouring and once it's poured we monitor our candles over the next 24 hours for strict quality control. This process allows our candles to cure properly, burn evenly and hold as much fragrance as the wax can contain.  Each candle is hand poured in small batches in classic mason jars and unique crystal glassware.  Our 8 oz soy candles burn an estimated 45 hours, depending on environment and burning habits.  

Our SCENTED FIZZY BATH BLASTS are made with the finest organic coconut oil and all natural ingredients. Settle in for a good soak with an original Ponderosa Bliss invention, exploding with essential oils and tons of fizzy fun!  Whether you're after a relaxing, petal-laden floral soak or an invigorating explosion of scent, there's a bath blast perfect for every bathing experience. The fresh scent will bring a smile to your face and the calmness of the organic coconut oil will help you forget your worries!
