There is something incredibly soothing about the warm glow of a candle. But you may be surprised to find out that this product that provides such comfort is often made with toxic, carcinogenic materials.
Not all candles contain these harmful ingredients, and at Weax and Wicks we are committed to providing an all-natural, sustainable product devoid of unsavory ingredients. Not only do we produce these organic, beautifully-scented candles, we also give 10% of our profits to bee rescue and conservation efforts. When you purchase a candle with us, you are also supporting this critically important ecosystem.
Below, we offer a few of the benefits to making the switch to all-natural, sustainable candles.
4 Benefits of Non-Toxic Scented Candles
1. They are free from harmful chemicals
Traditionally, candles are made with some base ingredients that can increase toxin levels in the air when burned.
These candles are commonly made with paraffin wax which is a by-product of coal, petroleum, or shale oil. Products made using these fossil fuels are not only unsustainable, they are also bad for your health and the environment.
Our organic candles are a blend of beeswax and soy, which allow you to avoid harmful substances without sacrificing quality. This blend does not contain any artificial additives to provide color or improve the burn time of the candle.
Wicks made from metal can also release dangerous toxins into the air, so our products use wooden wicks. These wooden wicks do not mushroom, have little carbon build up, do not need to be trimmed, and leave no debris during the burn.
2. Eco-friendly and sustainable
Unlike paraffin, beeswax is naturally occurring and requires no additional energy or processing to be produced. Beeswax and soy are also biodegradable, so you can clean up wax spills and reuse candle containers.
Unlike many other candle companies, all of our packaging is also sustainable, compostable, or recyclable. You even get a 10% discount on your next candle if you recycle your old candle with us!
Our products take sustainability one step further by highlighting conservation. Besides dedicating a portion of our profit towards bee rescue, we also partner with organizations like The Honey Bee Conservancy that help support this critical ecosystem.
3. All-natural, toxin killers
Unlike candles made of paraffin, beeswax does not produce toxic fumes and heavy soot. Instead, beeswax actually purifies the air by neutralizing toxins, removing odors, dust, and mold.
Weax and Wicks products are also allergen-free for those with fragrance allergies. To obtain our beautiful scents, we use locally available natural ingredients, USDA certified essential oils and phthalate free fragrance oils. Our original candle contains no fragrance and can be ordered custom on request.
4. Longer burn time
The organic waxes of beeswax and soy burn more slowly than paraffin, so natural candles will last longer. While they can be more expensive than those with harsh chemicals, you are ultimately getting a better value with non-toxic scented candles because of their longevity--plus they are better for your health and the environment, too!
