Toxic Candles

Why candle free? What’s wrong with candles? Plenty, if you have candles made of paraffin. Paraffin—a petroleum byproduct—which releases carcinogenic soot when burned. The soot can also cause respiratory problems and will aggravate the conditions of those who already have asthma, lung, or heart problems.

“Burning an aromatherapy candle made of paraffin is similar to preparing a healthy drink of fresh-squeezed juice and adding a shot of gasoline,” says Eric Johnson of Candleworks, an Iowa City, an Iowa-based company that specializes in wholesaling nontoxic aromatherapy candles.

Non-Toxic Candles

I know it’s nice to have a romantic candle burning at certain times. There’s something soothing about seeing a burning candle. So if you’re determined to use candles I’d suggest those made of 100% Beeswax with a cotton wick or made from 100 percent vegetable-based waxes, which are also nontoxic. Make sure it’s 100% pure beeswax or vegetable oil, as some candle makers will use a combo of those ingredients along with paraffin to cut down the costs.

Diffuse Essential Oils as a Healthy Alternative 

A much better alternative to candle burning is to buy a cold essential oil diffuser that has the ability to have some soothing lights to choose from and the ability to turn off the light and just have it diffuse the essential oil. What you have to be aware of is just like candles, there are inferior essential oils on the market too. Personally, I would suggest using only Young Living Essential oils in a diffuser. They have been in business for 23 years and are the leader in high-quality essential oils. Don’t skimp on it just because of the price. You get what you pay for most of the time when it comes to an essential oil and since Young Living has many of its own farms growing the plants and distilling them themselves, you know you are getting the best quality oil for your money.  You can buy a Premium Starter kit that includes essential oils and the desert mist diffuser. The Premium starter kit is $160.00 and allows you to enjoy so many oils an almost 50% discount if you were to purchase each item separately including the diffuser.
