Why candles are so great?

It is absolutely refreshing to pamper yourself, as well as your home, with natural scented candles that feels like bliss all around you. It helps you to be at ease and relax while you get on with your daily routines.



Only the natural and toxic free candles can make an impact to your health, home and environment that will empower you with wonderful benefits and incredible scents that’ll make you smile wholeheartedly.

With so many natural scents that are available for you to choose, it’ll be difficult to resist any scent whatsoever.

Like I, many of us have a collection of candles that includes sweet notes of vanilla, charming lavender fragrances, zesty spicy lemon and many other exhilarating scents that can give tremendous benefits which can be seen down below:)




Chemical Candles

Candles made from beeswax, plant based wax such as soy wax, coconut wax, bayberry wax and many more produce sustainably sourced candles that are free from chemicals, pollutants and harmful substances.


It is ideal to check the labelling for candles, to ensure that there are no unnecessary chemicals and that they are of great quality. Most candles out in the market are made from paraffin wax which is a left over substance from refining petroleum or even chemically bleached.

Studies have shown that burning these chemical candles such as those with petroleum wax is a cause of concern to health, it releases harmful fumes and is relatively dangerous when breathed in :-

  • The air in your home can contain chemical fragrances and some leftover fumes that can sit even on the furniture and the surroundings of your home. It releases toxic waste such as benzene and some known cancer causing agents known as carcinogens.


  • The lungs are overworked a bit more as it has to deal with an array of toxic fumes entering into our bodies. Although, it does depend on how often these candles are lit and used but the more you are exposed to these sort of fumes, the more potentially harmful chemicals are dealt with such as formaldehyde levels from the body.


  • Soot can be produced from these chemical candles and you can sometimes see it released from the flicker of the candles flame. It is now exposed to the body, inhaled and can stain the respiratory tract!


  • Burning candles that contains heavy metals such as lead are not ideal for health as it can affect your brain and cells within the body. It is recognized as a waste product that your body will try to remove and may even lead to disruption in sleep or even difficulty in concentrating.


Although it is difficult to gain 100% pure candles, it certainly isn’t worth lighting and breathing in low quality candles that can provide serious consequences if lingered on for too long. Most of us feel the unpleasant effects that it can bring straightaway and can be seen similar to smoking.


Why use candles?




We are always looking for ways to improve our well-being and as humans, it is only natural to be on the lookout for better and healthier options that can bring out the best of us and those around us. Don’t put up with negative side effects, no matter big or small, it is always best to go for safer options overall.


There are many ways to simply relax and be present at the moment, for many of us reading can allow us to get immersed, excited and our imagination can get sparked. Simply lighting a home made, natural and gentle candle can arouse our feelings of calm and reassurance to emerge.

We can breathe in the earthy scents that stem from the candles that are toxic free and full of natural ingredients.


You can feel calm and energized when a candle is lit and feel the warmth glow from it while inhaling the cleaner impurities that it gives off.



You can use candles while you are practicing yoga, having a massage or meditating to create a more relaxed atmosphere that encourages better performance.


You would be inhaling cleaner and safer fumes that will not provide your organs, in particular the lungs with ‘dirty’ inhalation or dangerous fumes.


Sweet smelling and fresh fragrances are provoked to enhance your senses and providing greater benefits for the environment and to your home.


There are endless benefits in using natural and pure candles that can be used regularly. Just ensure that you keep candles away from furniture or close to clothes, bedding and things that can catch fire quickly. It is imperative that you light the candle out of reach from children and pets and away from an area that can easily get knocked over.

    I love a good candle, I burn them all the time. Yes, it is definitely important not to burn chemical candles. 

    I have found that good quality candles are a little more expensive but it is worth it knowing the health benefits alone. I see the Paddy Wax candles have free shipping on orders over $70. I live in Australia does include shipping to Aust?
