Why natural candles are better

Posted by Sarah Shaaban on

Everyone knows that scented candles can add to the atmosphere of any room. However, not all scented candles are created equal – and that does not just apply to the scents of each candle.

Whether it is soaking in the warm glow and calming scent of a candle for relaxation purposes, or to set a mood, it is important to make sure you are making the best possible choice for not only yourself, but your home and your environment. This is why natural candles are your best scented candle option.

Skylark Candles Health & Wellbeing

At Skylark Candles, our range of wonderfully scented candles use only natural soy wax, which is much more environmentally friendly than other scented candles made of paraffin wax. Also, unlike paraffin, soy is renewable.

Skylark Candles Renewable Soy Bean Plants

We like to be kind to the environment so all of our packaging from the glassware to the boxes and tape we post our items in have been specifically chosen so they can all be recycled. Soy wax is a natural product derived from soy bean plants. Soy is renewable. The plants grow back providing not only a wonderful product but life giving Oxygen back in to our environment. Candles made of non-natural products like paraffin wax have to undergo vast chemical processes in order to be sourced and then refined. Paraffin comes from crude oil a non-renewable substance which when burnt produces nasty chemicals in the atmosphere. As oil is a non-renewable substance it will eventually run out. However, soy wax when burnt in candles is a lot gentler to the environment not producing the toxic chemicals that paraffin gives out. Having a cleaner burning soy wax candle helps add to a healthier, calming atmosphere around your home or work place.

Skylark Candles Natural Scents

With a lot of industries making strides towards being healthier, and focusing on what is “better for us,” we at Skylark Candles are proud to be producing a more natural product, being conscientious about our environment, health and wellbeing. We applaud the use of more natural ingredients rather than chemically-filled synthetic materials that can cause more harm than good. 

Not only are our scented candles made of 100% soy wax, we also use essential oils to achieve our signature scents. We go right to the core with all of our candles and use cotton wicks at their centre. Each candle is contained in a glass votive jar with natural cork lid – all of which are fully recyclable and can be used again.
