The thing that scares me the most, is how most people are totally ignorant to what ingredients are in a normal candle ( this includes well known high end brands).
Most candles you buy from retailers are made from paraffin wax.
This wax is made from petrolium wast ( a by product from making petrol).
When you burn this wax, it creates toxic fumes, benzene & toluene chemicals.
They are carcinogens. Basically similar to letting someone smoke or run their car in your house....
If you've ever suffered from a headache whilst burning a scented candle, this will be the reason why.
Now we've tackled the wax, let's discuss where the scent comes from.
Most candle makers use synthetic perfumes, so basically you are burning a cocktail of toxic chemicals in your house..
There is a better way.
As with most things there is a natural alternative.
I use soy wax for lots of reasons.
first of all I like the colour...
However I like that soy is a vegan product, it also burns at a lower temperature, making it safer and more stable.
It also helps to keep the essential oils stable.
By using essential oils instead of using a chemical, I am using the power of nature to help with certain ailments whilst scenting your space.
I have personally tested every scent in my own home.
Every candle is make by me personally with a little bit of love.
