When you want to improve the general atmosphere of your home you will choose scented candles for that.
Fragrance allergies is a serious condition that you should consider before buying the scented candles. People who have asthma will also be affected by a lot of fragrance. Strong fragrances are actually what will affect these people not necessarily the scent in the candle. When you light the candle and feel light-headed and you have shortness of breath then the fragrance is too strong. This means in general you have to be careful on the scents that you use. If you have allergies contact your doctor before you get the scented candles. Candles that are non-toxic will have less effect on you if you have allergies. Look at the ingredients carefully to determine if they are non-toxic. We have listed some factors to help you in choosing non-toxic candles.
The first factor to consider is the type of wax the candles are made of. Candles are made from three types of wax. Crude oils make some waxes. Crude oil is generally not friendly to the environment. Candles can make symptoms of asthma be worse. Beeswax has been used to make candles for very many years. AS the name suggests beeswax is made from honeybees. Beeswax candles have been used through the years by noble families and churches This is the best wax and it is non-toxic and it has a very clean burn. Ensure that the candles are made from one hundred percent beeswax, not a mixture. Candles can be made from soybean oil. Soy wax is non-toxic for it comes from a natural source. Soybean wax candles are the cheaper non-toxic candles. The soybean candles will also come in a range of scents. Other than being non-toxic the soy wax candles last longer than the other types. Look at the wax very carefully when buying the candles.
The wick used on the candle is also important you consider. The cored wick is the most famous when it comes to wicks.
It is the best wick but most companies do not use it. Nothing is wrong with this other wicks it just depends on how the particulars are produced. A non-toxic candle will also have a wooden wick. Wood often makes a great sound when it burns and it also burns very cleanly.
Lastly consider the scents. There are scented candles that are non-toxic. Go for candles with essential oils not chemical fragrances.
