Toss a bottle if you notice pills flaking or capsules sticking together-both signs of moisture damage.

- Did you know soy candles are rapidly gaining popularity because they are so earth friendly?
- Soy candles, made from soybeans, the "Miracle Bean", use cotton wicks to accommodate the low melting point of soy wax.
