It's fall, and you know what that means: cozy scented candle season! But not all candles are created equal. Did you know that many conventional scented candles can release toxic chemicals including formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen, acetaldehyde, which is a probable human carcinogen, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's), some of which are known or suspected human carcinogens?
It's important when you're indulging in the comfort of the fall season that you know what you're burning in your home and how it can affect you.
That being said, here are the top 5 non-toxic, clean burning candles that we're recommending this fall.
Pumpkin Ginger Apple
Pumpkin Ginger Apple is a great fall candle. It's made with soy wax, which is sustainable, has a better scent throw, and burns longer than regular paraffin wax. This type of wax burns cleanly, so it won't create black soot inside your home or harm your lungs.
It also smells amazing! Many refer to this one as "Autumn In A Jar." This candle's scent blends ripe pumpkin, harvest apples, and peppery ginger with cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and creamy vanilla. If you're looking for something that will kick off the fall Halloween celebrations early, this one will do the trick!
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
This candle is an all-natural soy candle that smells like a sweet pumpkin latte. The smell of this candle is warm and inviting, with notes of decadent pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugared maple, and chocolate cream. The ingredients are all natural soy wax, which burns cleanly and evenly. It's free of artificial dyes or paraffin waxes (which can be harmful to human health) but still has a strong scent throw! You can find this candle at [link].
This scent is as cozy and crisp as the fall season itself. Fresh apples are blended with a touch of vanilla, maple, and a punch of smooth bourbon in this soy candle. It's sure to be a staple for your cool months! Again, this candle is non-toxic, using all natural fragrance oils that are phthalate and carcinogen free. You can pick one up here.
This candle smells like a cozy fireplace and roasting cinnamon and brings us right back to fall. It's great for winter nights too, and can be used in any room of the house. The Fireside candle is made with soy wax, so it's clean burning and has no phthalates or parabens. It also comes with a 100% natural cotton wick that helps keep the flame stable.

This candle is hand poured in small batches in the USA.
