Are you one of those people who can't get enough of those scented candles? Do you have a whole collection of them scattered throughout your home, filling every room with their delightful aroma? Well, I've got some bad news for you: those candles might be doing more harm than good.
You see, when you burn a scented candle, you're not just releasing the pleasant scent into the air. You're also releasing potentially toxic chemicals into the air, which can have serious health consequences if inhaled over a long period of time.
One of the main offenders is parabens, a type of chemical preservative that is often found in scented candles. Parabens have been linked to a number of health problems, including hormonal imbalances, reproductive issues, and even cancer.
But it's not just parabens you have to worry about. Many candles also contain phthalates, another type of chemical that can have harmful effects on your health. Phthalates have been linked to a number of issues, including birth defects, asthma, and allergies.
So what's a candle-loving person to do? Don't worry, you don't have to swear off candles altogether. There are plenty of natural, non-toxic options out there that can still give you that cozy, aromatic ambiance you crave. One such option is TBD Creatives, a company that offers a wide range of clean candles made from all-natural ingredients, free from both parabens and phthalates. Not only are these candles better for you, but $10 of every candle purchased goes to support people transitioning out of prison, homelessness, domestic violence, systematic poverty, and resettled refugees. It's a win-win situation – you get to enjoy a clean candle while also supporting a good cause. Check out their website at www.tbdcreatives.com for all your clean candle needs.
And if you really can't bear to part with your toxic candles? At least open a window and make sure you're getting some fresh air every now and then. Your lungs will thank you.
