Candle Wellness: Embrace Non-Toxic Options For Your Space | Verte Mode

Fall weather is almost here which can only mean candle season is upon on us. There’s something truly magical about cozying up your living space with fall decor and zesting up the air with the delightful scents of the season with our favorite candles. As fragrant filled as candles can be, it’s important to be mindful of the types of candles we light in our homes. Many conventional paraffin wax candles contain toxic emitting ingredients that can be harmful to our health and the planet. Luckily, Verte Mode is here to guide you through the world of non-toxic candles, ensuring a safe and eco-friendly candle experience that benefits both you and the planet. Get ready as we share everything you need to know and even share some of our favorite non-toxic candle's options. 

3 Reasons To Explore Non-Toxic Candle Options

Non-toxic candles are the best for many reasons, so let’s talk about it! Here are our top three reasons why non-toxic candles are the way to go: 

  1. Environmental Impact: Unlike paraffin candles, eco-friendly candles are made from materials that are naturally sourced. This is a great thing, as we see less demand for non-renewable fossil fuels. With the rise of sustainable goods such as candles, you’re partaking in the eco-conscious effort to minimize environmental harm.
  2. Non-Toxic Ingredients: Traditional candles often release harmful chemicals when burned, contributing to harmful indoor air quality. You get the best of both worlds using natural ingredient candles as they are not only better quality but are much safer too.
  3. Long Lasting: Both soy and beeswax candles are known to significantly burn longer than candles made from paraffin wax. In the long run, sustainable candles are much more cost-effective which is a win-win for both you and the planet.
