If you're anything like me then you love the soft, warm, flickering light that a candle creates. Even better if it's got a subtle aroma too. Nothing better than soaking away the week with a long soak in a candle lit bath while reading your favorite book.
We know that not all candles are healthy. No one wants to inhale vapourised Parraffin or lead and other heavy metals from candle wicks, which is common in the cheap store bought candles, especially those little white tealights, you know the ones. Then there are those brightly coloured ones with that relaxing "FRAGRANCE" which really is code for "CHEMICAL NIGHTMARE" and is not reason to relax but more like RUN THE OTHER WAY!! Here's the scoop on that Fragrance by The Environmental Working Group. Often people are opting for Soy wax candles in the search for a better option but even that poses some problems as most Soy candles generally also contain parrafin and most Soy now a days is GMO and that isn't something that we want to encourage. All these toxins from these nasty candles can lead to some serious health issues including endocrine disruption (aka messing with your hormones), allergies, central nervous system toxicity of which your brain is the major component and it goes on and on...
You want to stay healthy and there's just so many candles out there that you don't even know where to start!
It's all good, just BREATHE...... We've got your back!
We have recently added 100% Natural Beeswax Tealight Candles with cotton wicks to our gorgeous range of products. So what's the BUZzzz about Beeswax candles I hear you ask. Well the really cool thing is that Beeswax candles emit negative ions which help to clean and purify the air. Those lovely, little negative ions bind to pollutants, allergens and toxins in the air and the bonus is that negative ions make us feel good too. Moving water emits negative ions and that's one of the reasons that being by the ocean or even a water feature makes us feel so good. Rest assured that the Australian made cotton wicks are free from lead and all those other nasty heavy metals too. Probably the only time in your life that some negativity is a good thing huh?
Your after a subtle aroma too? Why not add a drop or two of your fave essential oil to the melt pool after your candle has been burning for 5-10mins. Be sure to place the drop close to the outer edge of the candle cup. I love adding some Organic Lavender when I'm having a candle lit soak in the bath to relax after a long week. Don't forget to give yourself lashings of Self Care!
So there you have it, clean, safe , healthy candles. Once again we've done all the work for you so that you can just sit back, relax, breathe easy and blossom!
