There’s something magical about lighting a candle. If you’ve had a stressful day, the aroma can fill the room and immediately relax your tired mind. But not all candles are the same. Though all possess the same three components—wax, wick and fragrance—some are more toxic than others. Many candle brands use refined paraffin, a type of petroleum wax that experts claim could possibly release carcinogenic soot, a cancer-causing substance. Added fragrance can also potentially release dangerous VOCs (volatile organic compounds), like formaldehyde and alcohol that can trigger asthma attacks and other respiratory issues. And if the wick is produced with a metal core, a common practice to keep the candle upright, it may also be releasing metal particles and small amounts of lead.

But before you never unwind with a candle again, natural candles do exist, and you can confidently burn them sans toxins. You’ll need to look for vegetable-based waxes like soy and beeswax and check the wick to make sure it’s not lead-based before you burn. Ahead, seven non-toxic, natural candles to help you relax.
