Clearly, not just any candle will do! Between what you want aesthetically, scent-wise, and what’s best for your health, it can be a bit of a challenge to find the best luxury candle out there. We’ve narrowed down what you should look for when purchasing your next candle.
Choose A Soy Candle
Did you know that paraffin wax candles release harsh chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene into the air, as well as soot, that you and your family then inhale? Over time, this can cause serious damage to your body, especially your lungs and respiratory system. Soy candles, on the other hand, burn clean—meaning you don’t have to worry about those nasty chemicals. And an added bonus: soy candles burn for up to 50% longer than regular paraffin wax candles!
Choose A Wooden Or Cotton Wick
Many candle wicks on the market today have a lead core, and burning them can lead to low-level lead exposure. Some of the effects of this include:
● kidney disease
● learning difficulties
● memory loss
● loss of appetite
● difficulty breathing
When deciding on what candle you are going to buy, purchase one that shares the information about the wick in the branding or packaging. Look for a candle that states its wick is made of wood or cotton.
Choose One With A Refreshing Scent
Another reason to choose a soy candle is that the scent from one will smell considerably stronger than that of a paraffin wax candle. Soy wax has a lower melting point, allowing a larger amount of liquid wax to gather around the wick. This liquid by the flame releases the essential oils into the atmosphere and directly to your senses. Furthermore, candles that are handcrafted have a much higher probability of having unique scents. Instead of being made in mass in a factory, a little tender loving care from an artisan candle making company will go a long way in the way your candle smells.
