For someone who loves to fill her home with the scents and ambiance of a candle, there is one big downside: most candles are filled with toxins and chemicals that may not be good for you or the environment. As someone who's been on a quest to reduce my own environmental footprint, I was very excited to create my own line of eco-friendly candles instead of settling for store-bought brands. I use natural ingredients and are made from coconut wax, which means they're better for your health and the planet. Coconut wax candles can be a bit harder to find than other kinds of candles, but you can get them online or at specialty retailers like Chè Lux Boutique. If you're curious about how lighting an coconut wax candle can improve your life, here's why I think it'll help make any room feel warmer, cozier, and more relaxing.
A home just isn't a home without a candle or two.
Candles are a great way to add ambiance to your home. They can help you relax
and unwind after a long day or can help you fall asleep when going to bed. They’re also perfect for waking up in the morning and creating a cozy atmosphere that makes any home feel more like home.
Candles are an easy way to give your living space character without spending much money on decorations or furniture!
They're better for the environment than other candle options.
Coconut wax candles are better for the environment than other candle options because they contain no toxic chemicals. They don't have paraffin wax, lead or zinc, phthalates or other harmful chemicals, artificial colors or dyes, animal testing and animal byproducts like beeswax does. Because coconut wax candles aren’t made with petroleum-based waxes you won't be contributing to global warming nor will you be burning anything toxic into the air around your home!
Coconut wax candles are made without GMO ingredients so you can feel confident that when burning this candle all of your senses will remain intact with no side effects.
Their scent is derived from clean fragrance oils.
I decided to source my fragrance oils from the USA-based company, CandleScience. The company's scents are far safer than any other brand's. CandleScience's standards are rigorous, and they exclude many materials that are ubiquitous in other suppliers’ fragrance oils.
You can guarantee that the scents used at companies like Chè Lux Boutique contain no:
✖ Carcinogens: These are materials known or thought to cause cancer.
✖ Mutagens: Materials that change the DNA of a cell, harming the cell and causing diseases like cancer.
✖ Reproductive toxins: Toxins that adversely affect reproductive organs and increase the risk of birth defects.
✖ Organ toxins: These are toxins that can cause adverse effects or disease within specific bodily organs.
✖ Acute toxins: Toxins that can cause adverse effects from a single exposure.
The packaging is beautiful and sustainable.
One of the best aspects of candles from companies like Chè Lux Boutique is that they are packaged in recycled, compostable, or recyclable containers. The packaging can also be reused for storage after you have finished burning your candle. Eco-friendly brands use materials such as cardboard or recycled plastic to make their packaging instead of plastic wrap that can’t be reused.
Recycled materials: Materials used to package eco-friendly products are often made from recycled material in order to reduce waste and protect the environment.
Compostable materials: In addition to being environmentally conscious with their packaging choices, many eco-friendly brands choose compostable packaging over plastics because it reduces the amount of trash going into landfills and oceans while providing nutrients for soil when disposed of properly!
Reusable materials: Some companies, like Chè Lux Boutique, will even have jars with lids that double as decorative storage containers once you've used up all those lovely smells! These containers can then be kept on hand until the next time you want something sweet-smelling burning away on your mantlepiece!
Coconut wax candles are becoming quite the rage among candle lovers. The reason behind this is pretty simple. These candles create a soothing, relaxing, and mellow ambiance that you'll want to savor. In fact, some people say they can even change your mood just by being near them. The wax is made of natural ingredients in a responsible and sustainable way so that you won't have to worry about the impact they leave on our environment. That's why they're a great choice for eco-friendly consumers.
I highly encourage you to give them a try. Get started here at Che Lux Boutique!
