Local mom's soy candles headed for celeb gift baskets at Emmys

Posted: Updated:

A creation by a Vancouver mother is taking her all the way to Hollywood.

Amy Vance has been making soy candles for four years.

Vance's candles are used on the set of a TV series shot in Portland and given to guest stars of the show.

Vance Family Soy Candles was selected to be one of 30 invited to create gift baskets for celebrities at a Pre-Emmy party next month.

Amy started creating the soy candles with organic, natural mixture of soy and plant extracts, after she would get headaches when exposed to normal wax candles.

She offers a series of scents of various states, including Oregon and Washington.

Her whole family is going down to the Emmy's and hope it will be a potential game changer for the small company.

The candles are sold at several local stores and online at http://www.vancefamilysoycandles.com.
