In our fast-paced lives, we often seek solace and well-being in the sanctuary of our homes. One way to create a calm and soothing atmosphere is by lighting a candle, but not all candles are created equal. Many are laden with harmful synthetic fragrances, paraffin-based wax, and polyester plastic wicks, posing a significant risk to our health and the environment.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce our Soothing Scented Candle - made with soy wax, a 100% cotton wick, and infused with the purest natural essential oils.
In this article, we look at the dangers of synthetic candles and why switching to our Soothing Candle is a step towards a healthier, happier lifestyle.
The Hidden Dangers of Synthetic Candles
Synthetic candles often contain a concoction of chemicals that release toxins when burned. These toxic fumes can harm our health, pets, and indoor air quality. Here's a closer look at the dangers:
- Synthetic Fragrances: Many candles use synthetic fragrances to mimic the scent of natural essential oils. These artificial fragrances often contain phthalates, a group of chemicals linked to various health issues, including hormone and endocrine system disruption, asthma, and allergies.
- Paraffin Wax: Paraffin wax is a byproduct of petroleum refining, and when burned, it releases harmful chemicals like toluene and benzene into the air. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can lead to respiratory issues and may even be carcinogenic.
- Synthetic and Polyester Wicks: candles commonly use synthetic fibre (plastic) wicks. Burning these can release particles such as phthalates into the air, which can be dangerous when inhaled. Burning plastic indoors is never a good idea for health and wellbeing.
The Natural Alternative - The KLORIS Soothing Candle
We understand the importance of creating a toxin-free environment at home. That's why we created our Soothing Candle. Here's why it's a better choice:
- Soy Wax: Our candles are made from pure soy wax, which is a renewable, biodegradable resource. Soy wax burns cleanly and doesn't emit harmful chemicals or soot.
- Cotton Wick: We use 100% cotton wicks, ensuring a safe, even burn. You won't have to worry about inhaling toxic particles from lead-core wicks.
- Natural Essential Oils: Our candles are scented with a blend of natural essential oils like lavender, patchouli, ylang-ylang, rose geranium, and blood orange. These essential oils provide a wonderful aroma and offer therapeutic benefits for your overall well-being.
The Benefits of Natural Candles
Switching to natural candles offers many benefits, including:
- Improved Air Quality: Natural candles don't release harmful toxins into the air, making your indoor environment healthier.
- Enhanced Mood and Well-Being: The natural essential oils in KLORIS' candles have aromatherapeutic properties that can help reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost your mood.
- Safer for You and Your Pets: Eliminating the risks associated with synthetic candles means a safer, more pleasant atmosphere for you, your family and your beloved pets.
At KLORIS, we're committed to your well-being, and our new 100% natural candle is a testament to that commitment. By choosing KLORIS' natural candles over synthetic alternatives, you're protecting your health and contributing to a cleaner, safer environment for everyone.
