Growing up, I was always sensitive to scents and quickly realised that strong fragrances triggered symptoms like headaches, nausea and even allergies. Walk into a supermarket or home fragrance store. You will find personal care products, candles and diffusers chucked full of nasty chemicals that can irritate your skin and trigger allergic symptoms. This started my journey into finding alternatives for more natural products that later also had its own challenges. For instance, these natural candles often had poor scent throw and looking for products with decent smell without side effects were harder to find. This then led down to creating our own line of natural candles years later where we have tried to incorporate scents that are mild yet welcoming with soy wax that have a slower resistance to melt, and create less smoke that we can all enjoy at the comforts of our home.
Hence if you are searching for nontoxic, clean-burning candle with amazing scent throws, you are in the right place. Keep scrolling to learn more about our 5 best candles crafted for people who are sensitive to scents.
