3 Tips for Buying Nontoxic Candles

1: Skip "fragrance."

Choose brands that use transparent language around what is in their candles. Look for candles scented with “100% essential oils” or “essential oils only.”

2: Skip paraffin and petroleum wax.

Look for candles labeled “100% coconut wax” or “100% beeswax" instead.

3. Find out more about the wick.

For a clean burn, look for cotton wicks that are unbleached. This usually takes a follow-up with the brand to clarify.
