The Right Aromatherapy Candles For You

Whether a pick-me-up for yourself or a gift for that special someone, a candle is always a safe bet.


Right? Well, not really. Besides, of course, choosing the perfect fragrance, (which is borderline science), there are a lot of different types of candles to think about. And we’re not just referring to the size and shape; no, more important than those factors is what the candle is made of. But don’t stress; we’re here to help you out. By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly which ones to get. Spoiler alert– it’s aromatherapy candles.


What are Aromatherapy Candles?


Aromatherapy candles are a niche area within candles and can be tricky to pin down. It can be really difficult to know exactly what you are purchasing these days, there are so many different places selling all sorts of ‘scented candles’. Unfortunately, this title is all-encompassing and doesn’t go into any form of detail about what the fragrances are, or what the candles are made of. If you want to know more about The difference between aromatherapy candles and scented candles then read this article. Putting it simply, aromatherapy candles consist of two basic things which set them apart.


Firstly, the wax used in aromatherapy candles is always high quality, naturally derived wax, like soy or beeswax. Secondly (and more importantly), the aroma in aromatherapy candles is, well, good for therapy. The scent is made from essential oils and is believed to have positive impacts on both your physical and mental health. There’s so much information about different essential oils and all their health benefits, but we won’t get into that for now.


You can get all sorts of aromatherapy candles; from the ‘beach escape candle’ to the ‘reduce anxiety candle’ or ‘sleep candle’. They all have different benefits besides  smelling amazing. The sense of smell is the strongest of the human senses and can transform an environment more than sight or sound can. Simply by lighting our Coconut + Lime Candle you can be mentally transported to a tropical island getaway.



Why use aromatherapy candles?

To put it super bluntly, aromatherapy candles are better for you AND the environment. Lots of candles actually contain harmful toxins, such as paraffin candles which are made from wax derived from petroleum.


Yep. Petroleum, the same stuff that powers cars and is known to be a fairly harmful toxin for the air. Paraffin wax is easier to work with, and is a much cheaper product to produce, which is why so many cheap candles are made from it. But it can be toxic to humans, is not a very sustainably sourced material, and leaves soot when it’s burnt.


An American study found that burning paraffin candles regularly in unventilated areas can contribute to the development of health risks such as common allergies and asthma. So, when you take all of that into consideration, aromatherapy candles just make ‘scents’.
