The benefits of using natural candles…
Natural candles are the perfect way to create a cosy, relaxing environment in your home: the warm golden glow, the soft flickering ambience, the delicious aromas.
As a candle lover, I have burnt through my fair share of candles, both mass-produced and hand-crafted. And whilst mass-produced candles are cheaper to purchase, they are also more cheaply made. Hand-crafted candles maybe a little more expensive to buy, the benefits are worth every cent. So, if you have not switched to Hand-crafted candles yet, don’t wait any longer. Buy and try a few, and you will never look back, and here is why…
Why are natural candles better?
They don’t contain nasty chemicals and solvents. Organic waxes, such as soy, cocoa, or beeswax, are easy to avoid exposure to risky chemicals.
Wicks are made from natural materials such as cotton, wood or hemp and are a better option than metal-cored wicks, which can release toxins or even leave traces of lead. Fragrances are natural and are not chemically enhanced.
They burn longer.
Natural waxes have a lower melting point, so they last longer. This means you get more for your money and more enjoyment from your favourite candle and fragrance.
They produce less soot.
Natural waxes and fragrances burn cleaner. As a result, you will not have black soot gathering on your walls or surfaces.
Natural Waxes are Biodegradable.
Making it easier to clean spills and re-use or re-purpose empty candle containers.
Help support Small and Local Businesses.
Purchasing Natural Hand-crafted candles made in New Zealand means you are supporting local communities rather than large corporates that have bought in bulk from larger offshore countries, which creates a large carbon footprint not only here but also in the manufacturing country. New Zealand’s small and local businesses have a much smaller carbon footprint.
