What Big Brand Candle Companies Don't Tell You

When you think of a candle you normally picture a scented candle in a jar, right? Have you ever thought about the millions of candle jars and labels that are mass manufactured each year around Christmas, Valentines Day and Mothers Day in the name of holiday gifting? You probably haven't because no one includes that in their marketing. Crazy right!?

Many big brand candle companies use paraffin wax for their candles, mainly because paraffin wax holds a higher scent load which means the candle will smell stronger for longer. But did you know that paraffin wax is petroleum based and created using crude oil, a fossil fuel!? 

So technically, paraffin wax based candles in a jar are not great for the environment. Plus, you don't want an extra fossil fuel burning in your house.
