After reading all of the crafty ways candle companies hide their potentially toxic fragrances, you may feel like all hope is lost. Do not fear, there are ways to find a nontoxic scent that won’t compromise your health!

Look for candles scented with 100% pure essential oils, or “essential oils only.” The company should give as much information about the essential oil as possible, including the extraction process used (steam distilled or cold pressed) as well as the region where the oil came from.

If you're someone who loves to light candles for a relaxing ambiance or to add a little extra something to your home decor, you may have concerns about the potential toxicity of certain candle scents. It's true that many candle companies use fragrances that can be harmful to your health, but there are ways to find a non-toxic alternative. Follow me for more!

The best way to ensure that your candle is non-toxic is to look for those scented with 100% pure essential oils. These oils are derived directly from plants and have not been altered with any synthetic chemicals. When searching for essential oil candles, look for companies that provide as much information as possible about the oils they use. This should include the extraction process used (steam distilled or cold pressed) as well as the region where the oil came from. This information can help you make an informed decision about the safety and quality of the product.

By choosing a truly non-toxic candle, you can enjoy all the benefits of a soothing scent without compromising your health. So next time you're browsing the candle aisle, keep an eye out for those labeled "essential oils only." Your body will thank you for it!
