How to choose sustainable candles

Choose candles that are made with unscented beeswax. Not all beeswax is created equal, though, so look for USDA-certified organic beeswax. To minimize soot, look for candles with a spherical shape to allow for more complete combustion. Keep an eye out for MADE SAFE®-certified candles, a certification that makes sure that your product doesn’t contain ingredients known or suspected to cause human health harm.
