Do you know that conventional candles you find in the stores or online are responsible for indoor air pollution?
Their toxic components release pollutants that circulate into our environment, creating toxins that are inhaled into our lungs.
Do you experience headaches near a candle or just simply when you get close to smell a candle even when it is not burning?
That is one of the effects of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) typical of fragrances, including those classified as toxic or hazardous by federal law.
When these scents are burned in a confined indoor space such as your home, without outdoor air diluting these toxic particles emitted, they react with ozone in the air and form harmful secondary pollutants such as formaldehyde.
Here is the list of toxic chemicals in Candles:
FRAGRANCE: Linked to development and reproductive harm
FORMALDEHYDE & BENZENE: Known Carcinogens
INDOOR AIR POLLUTION: Candles contain substances that can build up indoor
PARAFFIN WAX: Non-biodegradable and suspected to release toxic substances.
LEAD WICKS: since 2003 the lead wicks are being banned in the USA
Why deal with all these when we can simply opt for safer, organic, truly natural candles made by responsible brands that are willing to protect the environment?
I will keep updating this list, so come back to check new products! 🌾 🌸🍯
Here are some tips to avoid toxic candles:
1. Avoid Fragrance: choose unscented or candles made 100% with organic pure essential oils.
2. Avoid Paraffin: Conventional paraffin wax is derived as a byproduct of petroleum, coal, or oil shale and contains controversial and harmful chemicals such as benzene and toluene. Choose 100% beeswax, coconut
3. Avoid Soy Wax: soy candle companies won’t tell you is that they are not 100% soy, as the processing still requires small amounts of paraffin.
3. Avoid Toxic wicks: wooden wicks or unbleached 100% cotton wicks
4. Avid colored candles: their pigmentation can be toxic, Pigments used in candles can be toxic to humans and the environment. choose a natural color

Soy wax: often not 100% soy, it still involves paraffin
Unscented: they may still have paraffin wax
