What's a cozy night at home without a great scented candle? They are the perfect addition to a relaxing night after a stressful day, and yet so many of them out there are not safe for you or your home; emitting toxins, chemicals and contributing to air pollutants.
We found that the best candles are those made with all-natural ingredients like beeswax, coconut, soy or vegetable wax (not paraffin). Besides avoiding candles made of paraffin, look for those with a cotton or wooden wick and an all-natural fragrance. Bonus tip: trim the wick of the candle to 1/4 inch each time you light it to reduce the amount of soot being released in the air.
