There are 2 factors to consider when looking at a candle what the wax is made from and also what the fragrance is made from.
Fragrance is it made with synthetic fragrances or essential oils?
Is the wax paraffin wax our natural/organic wax?
A lot of candles may have essential oils but not be natural as they use paraffin wax. It is very important to be aware of what you are buying.
Candles that are made of paraffin wax can emit potentially hazardous chemicals carcinogenics which are known to cause cancer in some people. Burning or melting parffain wax can release numerous toxins.
Inhaling petrochemicals that are derived from paraffin wax can cause damage to the brain, lung and central nervous system as well as cause developmental difficulties.
Theses findings have also been supported by environmental and pollutant experts. A candle that is not made of natural wax can cause greater damage than inhaling second hand smoke from smoking.
“The breast cancer fund states when it comes to prevention of cancer to avoid Synthetic Fragrances.”
Synthetic fragrances found in many candles can disrupt the endocrine system affecting hormonal health can trigger weight gain and set you up for diseases decades later.
Candles or products with synthetic fragrances by this I mean fragrances that are an unidentified mixture of ingredients made from chemicals. It means it contains toxins and nasty’s you don’t want lingering in your home or body!
Toxic ingredients continue to turn up in products we use and breath on a daily basis such as synthetic scents, which can be listed on the label as ‘Fragrance’.
Essential oils are made up of organic particle’s. There is no danger for essential oils as they remodulate themselves and work in a friendly way once inhaled within our body and have a therapeutic benefit to the nasal cavity also.
It was very important for me to create a product range that is natural and benefits my clients both for the mind and body.
The Monique Hart Range uses only the purest botanical essential oils they work by working their magic on the nasal cavity.
When you inhale essential oils the molecules enter the nasal cavity and trigger different receptors.
So for example our 2 scents:
Bonne Nuit (meaning good night) is packed with essential oils to aid sleep and stress.
Joie De Vivre ( meaning joy of living) is packed with essential oils to assist with energy and happiness.
Both Collections harness the power of our precious homeopathic Ingredient Bleeding Heart for happiness and stress
Natural candles are better for not only you but also the environment as they burn clean and don’t throw soot you would otherwise inhale with paraffin wax candles.
