Hi! I am Dr. Nydia Dixon and together with my son, Princeton, we created Bedside Glow Chakra Candles. As a Doctor of Acupuncture, I have a desire to help improve the health of others. Along with this, I have always had a strong affinity for beautiful scents and because of this, I’ve always purchased a variety of candles. After having Princeton, I continued to burn candles daily. As a first-time mom, I would sleep in close quarters with my son and light a candle next to the bedside. The glow of the candle soothed him at night and helped him fall asleep. From this experience, the name ‘Bedside GLOW’ was inspired.
Being an Eastern Medicine Doctor has had a huge influence on my desire to begin the Bedside Glow Chakra Candle line. Using the knowledge I attained from school, I created fragrances that are not only aromatically appealing but also provide therapeutic benefits.
My hope is that you enjoy the fruits of my labor of love as much as I love handcrafting them!
Bedside GLOW homemade soy wax Chakra candles provide you the benefits of cleaner burning (no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants) thus they are less likely to stimulate allergies. They burn cooler and are 30-50% longer lasting than the standard paraffin candle.

Soy Wax Does Not Release Toxins Into the Air
In our Chakra candles, we use soy wax because soy wax is a healthier alternative to paraffin wax in that it does not release dangerous carcinogens into the air when melted like paraffin wax does. Burning and/or melting paraffin releases at least 11 known toxins—two of which are carcinogens—into the air. Carcinogens are known to cause cancer in some people.
Soy Wax is Environmentally Friendly
Since soy wax is made from soybeans, it is friendly to the environment because soybeans are a renewable resource. Paraffin wax comes from petroleum, which is not a renewable resource. This is especially important if you are pregnant, have kids, or have pets, because it’s the safest option health-wise. You want to avoid wax blends or candles that don’t state the exact breakdown of ingredients.
Soy Wax Scents are Stronger
Because soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax, the scent from its essential oils is more pleasant and stronger-smelling than the chemical scents added to paraffin. It’s common to hear people complain of headaches when paraffin candles burn, but in general, this isn’t due to the scent of the wax but rather the toxins it releases into the air. Soy wax offers many benefits over paraffin wax—some of which most people don’t even realize.
