Swap out those candles

Are you a candle lover? You might want to reconsider your favorite candle scents and instead turn for essential oils! Candles are a huge contributor to toxic indoor air quality and can be harmful to your health. Fragrances added to candles can contain a mixture of hundreds of chemicals and are known to emit harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Research shows that some VOCs can irritate your eyes, nose and throat; make it difficult to breathe; and can cause harm to the central nervous system and other organs. In addition to VOCs, most commercial candles are made with paraffin wax, a petroleum product that’s a byproduct of oil refining. When paraffin candles are burned, they can release benzene, toluene, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein, and black soot into the air! YUCK.

Instead of emitting harsh toxins in your home and making your air quality worse, try diffusing these essential oil blends. Not only do they smell amazing, help purify the air, and get rid of unwanted odors, but they may also remind you some of your old favorite candles! Essential oils help to set the tone of your home and their aromas can positively impact the environment around you! Throw out those candles and grab your essential oils instead!
