Did you know most candles contain dangerous toxins? That’s right! I’ll admit, I was a candle burning junkie and I also rode the Scentsy wagon for a while. Having a fresh smelling home is great! But when I learned how dangerous those fancy smelling scents are, I decided to ditch them for a safer alternative.
What’s in a Candle?
Most aromatherapy candles are made of paraffin (a petroleum by-product). The paraffin in the candles releases carcinogenic soot when burned, which can cause respiratory problems and will aggravate conditions like asthma and allergies. These candles are also scented with synthetic fragrances. Most synthetic fragrances contain phthalates, which are known to cause hormonal disruptions.

Candle and Wax Tart Alternative
Everyone loves having a fresh smelling home, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we have to put our health at risk with candles and wax tarts. A better alternative is to diffuse pure essential oil. Diffusing essential oil is a great way to improve your mood and uplift your spirits without the toxic side effects of candles and wax tarts.
Essential Oil Diffuser Blends
I enjoy changing our diffuser blends depending on our state of mind and the time of day. Here are some of our favorite Essential Oil Diffuser Blends. You don’t have to give up your love fresh scents floating through your home. Try these Essential Oil Diffuser Blends and keep on scentin’ on! 😉
Diffuser Blends for Relaxation and Rest
We love Diffuser Blends for Rest and Relaxation in the evening or mid-day when we’ve had a busy morning and want to relax and rest to recharge our batteries. Sometimes I even encourage the kids to take a nap! Can you believe that? 😉
Spa Diffuser Blends
Since going green and ditching all the synthetic scents in our lives, I’ve really enjoyed creating a soothing spa-like atmosphere in our home. I’ve trashed all those toxic Scentsy warmers and asthma-inducing candles and replaced them with essential oil Spa Diffuser Blends. Create the ambiance of a spa in your home too. You’re welcome! 😉
