Several months ago we started making some small changes toward “cleaner” living. We are slowly swapping out a few products here and there, where it makes sense for us. However, that does not mean that we’re going to miss out on one of our favorite things in the world: FALL SCENTED CANDLES! Today I’m sharing five favorite non-toxic fall candles that you can enjoy this season without bringing all the harsh chemicals into your home. Fall is my favorite time of year, so bring on all the cozy things!
Small disclaimer: I am aware that even soy candles are not always 100% “clean”, but they are a better option than other candles that contain chemicals like paraffin. I have read that the only true “clean” candle is one made with beeswax, which is the case for several of the options below. I encourage you to do your own research when it comes to nontoxic products, but the following are candles that I am comfortable burning in my home.
Five Favorite Non-toxic Fall Candles
I really love the Basic Bee candles. They have so many amazingggg fall scents for this season. I can’t stop burning them in my home! They make their candles with pure beeswax, organic coconut oil, and essential oils. These candles smell so good and are packaged in cute, minimal jars that would make a great gift idea. My favorites are pumpkin spice, apple crisp, and cozy autumn. They’ve made a great addition to my fall decor!
My favorite Natural Sloth scents are Fall and Home. Both are warm and delicious and fill our home with the perfect fall vibes. I love the Fall scent and the Home scent. Natural Sloth candles are MADE SAFE® certified, which means they are thoroughly screened, and 100% of registered ingredients are vetted by scientists and/or researchers to ensure that they are made without behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, fire retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high-risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, and harmful VOCs (this is straight from their website!).
Flourish is a local non-profit located in Daphne, AL that equips and empowers teen girls to succeed in life, through mentorship and life coaching. They offer a safe community space for girls to come to be part of a healthy environment. One cool thing about the organization is that they teach the girls how to make candles. Flourish puts 100% of the profits from their products towards their community center to continue to be a free space for teen girls to be mentored & developed. The girls make these candles with U.S.-grown natural soy wax & cotton-core wicks, as well as premium fragrance oil with essential oils.
My favorite scents are Sugar and Spice – oh my word it screams fall – and Pumpkin Pie!
Fontana Candle Co.
Fontana makes their candles with beeswax, coconut oil, natural essential oils, and wood wicks. They are free from petroleum byproducts, stabilizers, fragrance oils, or harmful dyes. The scents I have are Citrus Peel & Pine as well as Cypress Sage & Patchouli. You could use these scents year-round since they are so fresh and clean! I would love to try the Spiced Latte one next!
Wellness By Ari
Wellness By Ari is another brand that makes candles with 100% beeswax and essential oils. I like the “sweater weather” scent! These candles are made using 100% natural ingredients including an organic hemp wick and beeswax from local beekeepers. They have a strong, bright, hypo-allergenic burn which purifies the air and makes it smell good, too!
