The importance of good quality candles:
As the holidays approach, it’s often tempting to create a warm little cocoon. However, buying a candle for yourself or to give as a gift is not insignificant and is much more than just a decorative object. We light it to create a comforting and warm atmosphere, without realizing that it can be a real danger to our health!
1 – What is a candle made of?
There are 3 main families of candle waxes, namely:
- Animal: (beeswax)
- Mineral: (in paraffin in particular, which is a petroleum derivative. Microcrystalline wax, which is of the same family as industrial paraffins,…)
- Vegetable-based: (soya wax,…)
THE DANGER: the majority of candles produced today are made of paraffin because it is economical; however, when you know it is a petrochemical derivative, you hesitate twice before lighting it and breathing in toxic chemicals.
Usually, scented chemicals are derived from petroleum and sometimes from animal sources.
Similarly, most spark plug wicks contain lead that is released into the air upon ignition.
That’s why it’s important to choose the right candle.
As a fashion accessory that we prefer well made and with noble materials, we choose our candle AS NATURAL AS POSSIBLE. More than just a decorative object, it is intended to be inhaled once it is lit, so it’s better to choose it well.
2 – Always use a vegetable-based wax candle
Choose soy wax over oil-based candles. Soy wax candles burn cleaner and slower; they are non-toxic and do not release soot from oil and carbon.
In addition, soya is a renewable and biodegradable resource.
