Natural Alternatives to Toxic Candles

Does it surprise you that there are so many toxic candles out there? Here are some natural alternatives to toxic candles that can also detox your home.

Does it come as a surprise to you that many candles and their ingredients may be putting your family’s health (and even animals) at risk? I know, I hate to admit this because I love candles!

The fragrance in candles (as well as many other products containing artificial fragrance) can contain hundreds and even thousands of chemicals, many of which are linked to cancer and allergies.

Benzene and Toluene are two other chemicals in candles that can affect the central nervous system. Lead in the wicks is a possibility too!

The list goes on! Just research more and you will see what I mean. The only way to be sure what your products are made of, it is best to make your own.

Natural Alternatives to Toxic Candles:

  1. Make reed diffusers for your home
  2. Diffuse essential oils
  3. Make homemade potpourri
