True & False Aromatherapy

Posted on 28 May, 2011 at 19:42
Being a candle maker, I am often checking out competition and one thing really drives me bonkers (well, not bonkers, but it bothers me!).  That is the majority of candles that claim to be "aromatherapy" or "made with soy" or
"all natural".   In order to be aromatherapy, a candle needs to actual have the true aroma (in other words, essential oils or essences) in the candle.  I am amazed at how many candles have absolutely no real oil in them!  Only synthetic fragrance derived from petroleum that is labeled TOXIC by the FDA (but candles and body products do not have to label it as so , they just have to put fragrance).  The FDA has said that due to the low percentage of the synthetic fragrance, it does not have to be labeled.  You will find synthetic, toxic, cancer causing fragrance in ORGANIC body products, Natural Soy Candles, Aromatherapy Candles/Body Products& Natural Home Products.  This minuscule amount of fragrance can kill me!  Or at least send me to the E.R.!   What kind of "aromatherapy" is that?!  Customers are becoming more aware of the dangers of burning paraffin candles but are still learning that most products still contain petroleum & phalates in the form of fragrance.  All it takes is for us to get the word out!  We like to trust our manufactures and the labels on items.  Just like you read the ingredient list on foods, I highly recommend reading the ingredients on candles.  If it doesn't say made of: 100% soy, Essential oils (or plant essences/botanicals), and a cleaner burning and sustainable cotton wick.......stay clear!  Your lungs are at stake!
