Candles. They just smell so good.

But unfortunately, I had to give up candles a long time ago when I learned how toxic they really were.

The ingredients included in conventional candles have been linked to:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Cancer

That's just to name a few.

The problem is, there are no standards or guidelines for what is allowed to be included in candles. And if you take a look at the label, you will not find an ingredient list either.

A simple fragrance can actually include hundreds of chemicals, most of which have never been tested for safety.

So, I've opted for safer options including essential oils.

But sometimes you just want to light a candle and enjoy the ambiance it brings.
