Candles are usually considered as a medium for a fragrance that makes your room or home smell pleasant. Apart from the light, they are now more used as decor for events and celebrations but only a few of us are aware of the fact that not all candles are good for one’s health. Most of us are aware of the source of a candle’s fragrance and that’s where the Candle Boxes play a big role.
It is of utmost importance to consider the source of the fragrance of the candle. At times, what you are referring to as fragrance is the collection of harmful chemicals aroma. The reality behind a few amazing fragrances is that many of the chemicals use to create fragrances. Today synthetic petrochemicals derived from crude oil that carries carcinogens and has reproductive toxicity warnings. However, it doesn’t give the absurdity that all synthetic materials are unsafe or all-natural ingredients are safe for consumption. It varies from component to component depending upon its sources and properties.
The wax that melts your Candle
Petroleum-based paraffin wax has long been portrayed as a villain in the discussion of toxic candles. No health risks have been identified, but if avoiding paraffin makes you feel better, there are other options. Plant-based waxes such as coconut, soy, and beeswax can offer a more natural and sustainable approach. But still, that needs to be chosen wisely. Earlier, the lead wick was banned, this was a much bigger problem, but it’s still advisable to buy a cotton or wooden wick. Some cores have metal cores for support that may not be easily visible.
Clean Burning Candles
A clean burning candle doesn’t emit any harmful chemicals. It is consider safe to inhale and doesn’t affect organs. However, it is still a controversial topic since some people believe plant-based wax burns clean without releasing soot but it still doesn’t have any solid evidence to back up.
Types of Candle Wax
Different types of candle wax have different properties and different uses. You can select the type of wax considering your product. Few candle wax types include:
Paraffin is the most commonly used candle material. Paraffin has a high melting point petroleum by-product to provide the strength and rigidity required for votive candlesticks and tall pillar candlesticks. Many candle scents and colourants are specially formulated for paraffin, so the combination of scents and colours makes them stronger and more vibrant.
Soy wax candles do not contain any type of pollutants and hence do not produce any sort of petroleum or carbon. The wax also burns cooler than other candles, allowing it to last 30-50% longer.
As compared to other waxes, palm wax is thicker and more sustainable. It is biodegradable and eco-friendly hence does not harm the environment. Its compose of fatty acids which are separate from palm oil under extremely high temperatures and pressures.
Liquid Wax Candles
Liquid waxes are made from a variety of oils including mineral and paraffin oil, these candles burn without smoke or soot. They are a clean alternative to traditional candles as they do not require the handling of melted wax. In addition, it looks great even after hours of burning.
