BENEFITS OF AROMATHERAPY
Aromatherapy Candles are the perfect solution to help with relaxation, anxiety, stress relief and for sleep preparation.
Aromatherapy is a modern version of plant medicine. It uses the therapeutic properties of plant materials and aromatic plant oils to help improve health and well-being. The oils can positively impact the mind and body through inhaling their scent or applying to the skin. The fragrance of essential oils are known to stimulate the area of the brain that controls mood and emotions.
WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID PARRAFIN AND SYNTHETIC CANDLES
It is argued that paraffin and synthetic fragrances, which are found in many candles, can have a negative impact on physical health. Though they seem safe, regular scented candles that use synthetic fragrances and paraffin wax can be a big source of indoor air pollution. The emissions from paraffin candles contain many of the same toxins produced by burning diesel fuel and can lead to problems such as aggravating asthma, causing allergy-like symptoms, or irritating the respiratory tract.
A study carried out by Professor Alastair Lewis of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of York found that an ingredient commonly used to give candles their scent mutates into formaldehyde upon contact with the air:
‘The majority of candles sold in the UK are made from paraffin wax, a by-product of the petroleum industry. These have been shown to release an alarming range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), substances that can be problematic to health. Unless your candle is clearly made of 100% soy, rapeseed or some other natural wax it will be paraffin.
When researchers burnt a range of candles in a laboratory for a study the chemicals released in harmful amounts included human carcinogens and chemicals known to cause asthma attacks, such as toluene and benzene'.
