Lighting candles around your house is more popular than ever before. Aromas and scents can quite literally set the tone and mood of a room depending on the scent that you choose. From calm and relaxing to uplifting and a sense of 'lets get this done' in your home office.
But are all candles created equal? The answer is a most definite no. A lot of candles are made using paraffin wax which is derived from petroleum and can contain various toxins, carcinogens and air pollutants and who wants to burn that in their home. Normally these candles will be cheaper in price so it is always worth checking before you buy and paying a little extra to get a good quality naturally derived wax candle that generally will last longer too.
Organic waxes, such as soy wax or beeswax, are an easy way to avoid risking exposure to these chemicals. Our teams candles of choice are the beautiful ones made by the fabulous Irish brand, Jane Darcy.
