Candles are a home's best friend! Gently, they illuminate to enhance the ambiance and fill the air with rich aroma-therapeutic scents giving any space character.
The main component within scented candles is wax but there are many different types of waxes. Large companies like Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works construct their candles with paraffin wax. This wax is most commonly used because it is easy to produce at a low cost to manufacturers and is widely known as being "safe to use".
The real question is, is it healthy to use regularly? When heated, paraffin wax, a petroleum byproduct, releases benzene and carcinogenic soot which results in poor indoor air quality; If exposed to these toxic chemicals over a period of time, the pollutants can cause Cancer. At Cynthia's Southern Luxuries, our handmade candles are made with coconut wax and beeswax. Though our cost of production is higher, we find satisfaction in producing healthy products that will benefit our consumers, their families, and the environment. Coconut wax burns slowly, naturally releases scents extremely well and is the most eco-friendly wax. Beeswax is the oldest known candle wax and is harvested from honeybee hives. Smokeless and sootless, beeswax emits natural uplifting scents of honey which reduces the need for extra oils and boosters that pollute the air.
Safety and health is our highest priority and we are confident that our Crackling Woodwick Rustic Candles deliver such quality!
