Parabens Uncovered: What's the big deal? Healthy Fragrance oils

Candles have been used for thousands of years to add ambiance to a room, provide lighting, and even for religious ceremonies. However, with the rise of scented candles, there has been growing concern about the potential health hazards associated with their use. Many fragrance oils used in candles contain harmful chemicals such as parabens and phthalates, which can have negative effects on both human health and the environment. Fortunately, there are candle fragrance oils available that are free of these harmful chemicals.

However, they have been linked to a number of health concerns, including hormone disruption and breast cancer. Phthalates, on the other hand, are used to make fragrance oils last longer and can also be found in plastic products. They have been associated with reproductive problems, asthma, and other health issues. You need healthy fragrance oils in your products
