Candles with a toxic overlay explaining that paraffin wax candles are dangerous.

Are Your Favorite Scented Candles Secretly Poisoning Your Home?

What if I told you that the candles you’re using could possibly be dangerous? What if the problem was so easy to fix that it wouldn’t even bother you to completely eliminate that danger from your life?

Those popular scented candles might not be as harmless as they seem. A recent medical journal article revealed that many candles, especially those made with paraffin wax, release toxic chemicals when burned. Think of headaches, respiratory problems, and even potential links to cancer. All that just because you found a scent you love.

Don’t panic just yet! The good news is, there’s a simple solution. It’s time to switch to candles made with natural waxes like soy or beeswax and opt for scents derived from essential oils. These candles offer a safer, cleaner burn, so you can enjoy those cozy vibes without worry.

We’ve done the research for you! Our research into candle manufacturers led us to our current vendor partners, who use only natural waxes in their candles. Milkhouse Candle Co, Milk Reclamation Barn, and any other small candle maker we partner with must use only natural waxes for us to even consider bringing them in.

Don’t let hidden toxins ruin your relaxation. By making a small change in your candle choices, you can create a healthier, happier home. Ready to find your new favorite candle? Check out our candle section for not only safe candles but scents you will absolutely love to have in your home.
