Whether you buy from us or another amazing small batch maker, please choose to shop for a candle that is clean burning. Remember to check the label and ingredients so you can enjoy the warm and relaxing glow of candles without having to sacrifice the air you breathe in.
Choose a candle that is made free of paraffins. Paraffin wax comes from the refining process of lubricating oil and is the end product of petroleum and contains carcinogenic compounds. When burned, paraffin releases toxins like benzene into the air that can be damaging to the lungs. While the amounts released can be small, we don’t like to take our chances.
All of our candles are crafted with 100% natural coconut-soy wax. Coconut wax is made from the meat of the coconut, its organic, renewable and pesticide free. Soy wax is made from soybeans, a renewable resource that is non-toxic and gmo-free.
Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastic flexible and harder to break. In fragrance oils, Diethyl Phthalate (DEP) are used to dissolve raw materials and as a fixative to make scents last longer. However, Phthalates have been associated to negative health impacts and while it is not clear whether the levels that people encounter cause adverse effects, it is clear to us that our products would be better off if they didn’t pose any such risks.
We only use premium fragrance oils that are 100% phthalate-free as it’s always been important to us to create non-toxic candles that smell good and are safe to use in any space.
