Breathe Easy: Why our Candles are a Beacon of Transparency and Wellness

Imagine curling up on the sofa after a long day, a flickering candle casting a warm glow and releasing a scent that washes away your stress. Sounds idyllic, right? But have you ever stopped to think about what's actually in those lovely-smelling candles filling your home?

At Holistic London, we believe transparency is the key to true relaxation. We’re ditching the smoke and mirrors (quite literally) and are on a mission to bring you candles that are as good for you as they are for the environment.

Why Honesty Matters: Unveiling the Truth About Candle Ingredients

Many candles use paraffin wax, a petroleum byproduct. While paraffin gets the job done, research suggests it might release harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) linked to health concerns.

But that's not all. Burning paraffin wax can also create soot, tiny particles that could potentially irritate your lungs. Holistic London says no thanks to that!

Soy Power: A Sustainable and Safe Alternative

Holistic London is all about clean burning. That's why they use 100% natural soy wax. Soy wax burns cooler and cleaner, emitting less soot and lasting nearly twice as long as paraffin candles. It's also a win for the environment – a renewable resource that doesn't rely on fossil fuels.

Aromatherapy on Point: Fragrances that Do Your Body Good

Scent is powerful. It can set the mood, ease your mind, or even boost your focus. Holistic London understands this, which is why they meticulously craft their fragrances using a unique blend of essential oils and IFRA-compliant fragrance oils.

Essential oils, extracted from plants like flowers and herbs, boast natural therapeutic properties. Feeling stressed? Light a lavender candle. Need a pick-me-up? A citrus scent might be just the ticket.

IFRA stands for the International Fragrance Association, an organization that ensures the safety of fragrance ingredients. By using IFRA-compliant oils, Holistic London guarantees their candles are free of the nasties often found in synthetic fragrances.

Cotton Wicks: The Unsung Hero of Clean Burning

The wick might seem like a minor detail, but it plays a big role in how your candle burns. Holistic London uses only natural cotton wicks. Unlike traditional lead wicks, cotton wicks burn cleanly and evenly, without releasing harmful toxins. This ensures a safe and healthy burn for everyone in your home, especially children and pregnant women who are more susceptible to lead exposure.

More Than Just a Candle: A Commitment to Wellbeing

Holistic London isn't just about creating beautiful scents; we’re passionate about creating a safe and healthy home environment. By prioritising transparency, clean ingredients, and sustainable practices, they empower you to make informed choices for yourself and the planet.

So next time you're looking for a candle, ditch the mass-produced paraffin options and choose a brand that cares. Holistic London candles are a breath of fresh air, both literally and figuratively. Light one up, breathe easy, and discover the difference that transparency can make.
