Scented candles are a popular, easy and effective way to perfume the home, and add a sense of cosiness. They’re often lit when we’re in the bath, to unwind or to simply add a little atmosphere to our space with the flickering light.
But did you know the scent in scented candles can be incredibly toxic? Some candles may emit numerous types of potentially hazardous chemicals, such as benzene and toluene, which can cause headaches, damage to the brain, lung and central nervous system, as well as cause developmental difficulties – suddenly those vanilla-smelling candles don’t smell so tasty, do they?
At Grampians Goods Co. however, we do not use synthetic fragrances or toxic ingredients and offer a collection of natural-alternative scented candles using exclusively 100% pure, high-grade essential oils.
So, if like me, you’re one of those people who can’t tolerate the scent of cleaning products, air fresheners, insect repellants, and even supermarket deodorants, and you find these products end up giving you a headache for days, it’s probably because the toxic fragrance in those products is literally making you sick.
Another common ingredient in cheaper candles is paraffin wax which has chemicals including Acetone, Trichlorofluoromethane, Carbon Disulfide, 2-Butanone, Xylene, and Cyclopentene, and many others – sounds horrible, right? At GGCo. we use eco-friendly, vegan soy and coconut waxes infused with bespoke pure essential oil blends, which means there’s nothing artificial or harmful in our range.
As well as ensuring there are no synthetics in our scents, we use pure cotton wicks with no lead or zinc. They are 100% safe for you and your family, and they ensure your candle burns beautifully naturally!
Our non-toxic aromatherapy candle range in a variety of uplifting scents that are healthy, kind to your environment and elevate your senses. Our essential oil blends have rich, complex aromas comprised of individual scents that actually exist in nature, so not only are they non-toxic, they actually have therapeutic benefits that range from purifying the air through to calming nervous tension, and are the healthy option and best solution if you still want to enjoy fragranced home (and body!) products minus the migraine.
If you’re looking for a candle that has a bespoke blend and actually benefits you emotionally, try our Lemon & Basil for ENERGY aromatherapy candle and experience the energising blend of strong citrus and balancing basil – perfect for revitalising the body and waking up the mind. Or try our Roman Chamomile & Lavandin to RELAX. Roman chamomile has long been hailed as an antidote to stress, coupled with the relaxing ethereal French Lavandin which promotes feelings of hope, boosts mental strength and combats negative thoughts. We have a candle and blend, to suit all of your needs.
Our Aromatherapy Candle Collection and our Grampians Grown Body range are scented using high-grade 100% pure essential oil blends exclusively; not low-quality “fragrance” oils, and not a misleading fusion of essential oils and cheap synthetics.
Burning one of our candles will elevate a moment in your everyday routine and the ambiance in your home, instead of contributing to your family’s toxic load.
