Safe Swap: Pumpkin Candles

It should come as no surprise to you that conventional candles are wildly toxic.

 

Sadly many people don’t even connect the dots that their beloved candles are contributing to their…

  •  Headaches
  • Respiratory/breathing issues
  •  Eczema, hives, or skin irritation
  •  Indoor air pollution

 

And even if you and your family members don’t experience any of those physical symptoms when burning traditional candles… you’re still being exposed to the toxins that create that response for other people.

Most standard candles are created with paraffin wax. This wax can release toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air including acetone, benzene and toluene, which are known carcinogens. These are the same chemicals found in diesel fuel emissions and are known to cause allergies, asthma attacks and skin problems.

Thankfully, after a lifetime of searching for you all, I found a delightful company that uses toxin-free fragrances and complete clean coconut and soy wax blends. You won’t miss your old ones at all and your whole home will be better for it!

 

My favorite one 

Hello Autumn: “Comforting and sweet with just the right amount of spice with warm top notes of toasted pumpkin, persimmon, clove, and nutmeg infused with a base of smoked embers and buttercream. A decadent twist on a classic autumn fragrance!”

And if pumpkin candles aren’t your jam, she has a few other fall scents that are scrumptious too!
