How to choose a scented candle?
First of all not every candle is natural, so what would be the best way to choose a scented candle? If you are willing to buy a gift candle to your family or friend, better to know how to choose it. Buying candle as a gift is a really warm sign of love. Scented candles creates a very special ambiance in the space lit. But you have to be sure that this candle doesn't pollute your air, especially if the room isn't aired.
First Thing to Look in a Candle: the Wax
The main ingredient of all candles is the wax. There are mostly 3 possibilities to make a candle: vegetable wax (mostly soy wax), beeswax or paraffin wax. The most natural option for candles is the beeswax, and it's also the first type of wax used to make candle throughout history. But we have to say that beeswax isn't vegan because it's obtained from honeycombs. So here is the question: Is Soy Wax Vegan? Yes! If you are vegan you can use soy candles with a peace of mind. For the paraffin, there isn't much to say, it's obtained from petrol. Even though there are some people defending that it's not harmful to the body, when you think that you inhale the wax mixed to the air, it will unavoidably have a negative effect.
For scented candles the best base ingredient is soy wax. But What Is Soy Wax? It's extracted from soy bean, that's why soy candle is natural. The other positive aspect of soy wax is that it's the best base for scented candles. So the next time when you will buy scented candles, be sure that it's made with vegetable wax.
Second Most Important Thing: the Scent
Most of the candle companies use fragrance to make scented candles. Not only the smell of it is too strong, it is also harmful for you and for the environment. That's why as HAZE Candles, we are using only essential oils in our scented candles. Because we respect ourselves and the environment.
Using essential oils in scented candles gives our candles a more natural scent. When you smell the Aurora scented candle you will feel yourself in an impressive view before the sunrise, or in a lavender field. If you prefer more greener smells, like being in a forest just after the rain you will love Misty Woods. Or you can prefer more zesty notes, in that case Orangerie will bring freshness to you day.
Don't Skip the Wick: Cotton Wicks
A candles wick is also an important part of the candle. You don't want to have a mushroom affecting the flame of your candle, and if it's soothing it's even worse. But not only this, you have to be sure that the candle's wick is made from cotton in order to have a natural well burning light. And here is tip for all candle lovers: always trim your wick to 5 mm to have the best light.
