Choosing a clean burning candle is complicated. Brands like Goose Creek are doing better than most, but still haven’t crossed over to natural fragrances–but maybe one day! Regulation lines are blurred and it’s hard to find information on what is and isn’t okay to breath. But we do know that petroleum based, parrafin wax and lead wicks are major “no no’s”, and non toxic fragrances and essential oils are better options. We’ve filtered through reviews and ingredient lists to bring you a selection of candles that are better than the rest. So get ready to fill the house with warm scents and lots of cozy “feels”.
Fontana Candle Company
Fontana Candle Company was dreamt up by a trio of folks who realized the negative impact of toxin exposure. Beeswax candles have been around for ages, but are less common because they don’t release blended scents very well. Fontana created a perfect balance of coconut oil and beeswax into their product, which turned out to be the trick. The result is a completely clean candle, which they add incredible natural aromas to, such as pressed coffee oil. Swoon.
Edens Garden also opts to use coconut oil in their junk free candles. A ribbon wick ensures the natural smells disperse well across the room. Each one is hand poured into a lovely frosted glass container that can be recycled either at a facility, or within your home. Tobacco patchouli is a warm, welcoming scent that fits any season.
