What Are the Healthiest Candles?

Scented Candles

Many people use candles to decorate the room, create ambiance, or stimulate good moods. Most people forget that whereas some candles are great for your health, others will release pollutants into your indoor air. Baba Me recognizes this fact, and we are proud to sell some of the healthiest scented candles. Order today from our many brands of natural soy candles in stock.

Healthy candles will bring you peacefulness and sweet fragrances without compromising your long-term health and indoor air quality. Here are some qualities of a healthy candle and some of the healthiest candles that we stock.

Qualities of Healthy Scented Candles

Wax used

The healthiest candles use natural wax in place of paraffin wax. Whereas paraffin wax will release a lot of soot and toxic VOCs into the air when burned, natural wax produces less soot and minimal toxins. Therefore, you can burn them, knowing that the air in your home will not be polluted.

  • Soy wax
  • Coconut wax
  • Bee wax
  • Vegetable wax
  • Palm wax

Natural fragrance

Healthy candles use fragrances created from essential oils. These essential oils are derived from plants and flowers and do not release potentially harmful toxins into your indoor air.

If you are all about healthy products, you should therefore avoid any candle that use synthetic fragrances. Any candle that gives off compounds like limonene and formaldehyde, and esters, which may cause dizziness, allergic reactions, and asthma attacks.


Traditionally, candles have a cotton wick wrapped around a metal support like tin or zinc. Research shows that such wicks release a small amount of heavy metals like lead when burnt. Lead was banned in candles due to the risk of lead poisoning.

Healthy candles avoid this by using wicks made from 100% cotton or wooden wicks that do not create an ashy and sooty residue.

By combining the above qualities, healthy candles let you enjoy your favorite fragrance and create moods without compromising your long-term health. All the candles sold by Baba Me are naturally made from soy wax, infused with natural essential oils, and have wooden wicks.
