With the Autumn officially here and the nights drawing in, there is nothing better than a cosy evening at home with the aroma of your favourite vegan candle burning gently.
We all love candles, they create and change an atmosphere in a room and can affect your mood, depending on the essential oils used for the fragrance. They are ideal to give as vegan gifts all year round.
With our lives seemingly getting busier, it is important to create a calm space to relax and unwind. Candles play a big role in providing us with heavenly aromas to do just that. But choosing the right candles isn’t always easy with so many to choose from it can get confusing.
Not only do we want the most amazing aromatic scents filling our home, but we also need them to be natural, non-toxic and vegan.
Here on MettaLife we guarantee all this, let’s explain why these things are so important to us.
Why Eco-friendly vegan candles are better.
If you buy cheaper candles made with paraffin based wax which may smell nice and have pretty colours, they can fill your air with poison gases and create black soot. They can contribute to the cause of ill health such as asthma, allergies and even some cancers.
They are also a false economy as they don’t last as long and the scents are never long lasting compared to natural candles.
Investing in a good quality vegan candle is much better for you, your family and the environment.
What is a vegan candle?
The most popular wax used in vegan candles is soy, coconut or a blend of natural vegetable waxes. These are usually cream/white in colour as they contain no artificial colours. They are fragranced with essential oil blends to create wonderful scents and provide aromatherapy benefits for every mood.
- Research shows they are safer and non-toxic.
- Cleaner burning candles.
- Soy wax will last longer as it has a lower melting point.
- Knowing that No animals were harmed while your candle was made.
