“Personally, I love candles, but they can also be a source of carcinogens like benzene, toluene, formaldehyde, and phthalates,” says Chen. These airborne particles can be harmful to health in high doses, all of which are harmful to health in high doses. Research has shown1 that burning a candle at home probably doesn’t release enough particulate matter to be harmful to health, but in the colder months when you tend to keep your windows closed (aka right now) there can be more of a vortex effect .
That doesn’t mean you should avoid candles altogether. Chen’s solution? “You can look for soy or beeswax. They’re better,” she notes. If you decide to use beeswax, just make sure it says 100% on the label; Many candles contain a mixture of paraffin and another wax but call it “beeswax”.
As for scent, look for products with 100% naturally derived essential oils that are phthalate-free, or further explain the “scent” as natural and non-toxic. I personally adore all of Brooklyn Candle Studio’s products, especially this Montana Forest blend.
