About Carefull CandlesCarefull Candles on Etsy | smelltheroses.com

Carefull Candles is a small business that launched on Etsy last year. Caroline, the shop owner, started making her own candles after discovering the hidden dangers found in the big-name conventional brand candles. In an effort to avoid her and her family from inhaling toxic fumes, she starting formulating and pouring her own candles using 100% non-GMO soy wax and 100% non-toxic essential oils/fragrances. Loving how her home-made candles came out, she decided to sell them and the Carefull Candles Etsy Store was born!

I discovered Carefull Candles last year after tirelessly researching for a candle company that met my strict standards. Although there are many soy-based candle companies, not all have a completely clean label. I wanted a candle that was safe from its ingredients to its wick to its container — you can imagine how excited I was when I found this brand on Etsy!

  • Ingredients: 100% non-GMO soy wax | 100% pure essential oils and/or phthalate-free natural fragrances | No additives/fillers
  • Wick = Flat Braid Cotton + Paper Fiber (free of zinc, tin, and lead)
  • Container = reusable glass jar
  • Charity = $1 is donated to Hearts2Honduras with every purchase

What I’m Giving Away: 

  • Pumpkin Spice Candle – 8oz ($18 value)
  • Marshmallow Campfire Candle – 8oz ($18 value)
  • Autumn Day Candle – 8oz ($18 value)
  • Total Value = $54!

These candles smell absolutely amazing.. I guarantee you will love them. Marshmallow Campfire is my personal favorite because it smells exactly like a melted marshmallow! Autumn day is the perfect “everyday” candle which will fill your home with warm yet light fall scents. 🍂 And pumpkin spice smells EXACTLY like a pumpkin spice latte! 🎃

Carefull Candles vs. Conventional Scented Candles:

Life would certainly be much more convenient if I didn’t know as much about the chemicals/ingredients in my everyday products. This time of year, Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle have so many amazing scented candles that immediately make you excited for the fall and nearing holidays. However, these seemingly harmless candles hide an ugly truth. When burned, they release toxic fumes which pollute the air and are harmful if inhaled. For instance, big-name conventional brand candles made with parrafin wax produce benzene and toluene (known carcinogens) when burned. Inhaling these toxins are similar to inhaling the fumes from car exhausts.

Remember, chemicals don’t have to have a harsh odor to be harmful; many are actually odorless! Synthetic fragrances may smell nice but they are still chemicals and can be hazardous to your health.Fall Scented Candle Safe Swap | smelltheroses.comCarefull Candles vs Conventional Candles | smelltheroses.com

Care Suggestions from the Carefull Candles Etsy Shop:

  • When lighting a soy candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container – this is usually 3/4 hours long. If you do not have 3/4 hours please wait until you do! Trust me, it will extend the life of your candle tremendously. If you do not let the wax melt all the way to the sides of the container, it may cause a “tunneling” effect, and your candle may not last as long as it is intended too.
  • The wicks need to be trimmed before EACH and every burn, failure to do so may result in black spots in the candle, a shorter burn time, and soot.

You can shop these amazing fall scents and more on Etsy! 🍂

    I just really love candles! All natural is much better for the environment in the making of them to the burning of the candles. Plus, they don’t have that artificial smell.

    I haven’t burned a candle in my house for years. When I found out how dangerous (toxicity factor) they could be I decided to stop using them. I also suffer from sinus migraines that are caused by artificial fragrance. I have never tried a soy, all natural candle and I would love to! These candles look simplistic and the scents seem like they would be amazing. Thanks for this opportunity.

    Would love to win these. I agree, there are so many chemicals and toxic fumes from other candles, that can trigger allergies, and asthma. And That marshmallow campfire sounds like it smells delectable. Thank you for three chance.
