Essential Oils vs. Synthetic Fragrances
hushus_candle_001

 

Over the past months I’ve been working on these new candles. My candle is scented with 100% Soy Wax and 100% Essential oils. Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax is naturally biodegradable. I believe that synthetic fragrances are harmful for you and the environment. Essential oils are obtained through a highly labor intensive process where the vital essence of the plant is extracted. These oils contain varies of therapeutic properties. Synthetic oils on the other hand simply exists because they are cheaper to produce.

 

More on Synthetic oils taken from wayoutwax.com: 

‘WHAT ARE SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES?
Synthetic Fragrance oils are primarily made from petrochemicals and attempt to duplicate the smell of a specific plant. By dismantling the unique chemical compound of an essential oil, chemists re-assemble a “Frankenstein” fragrance. A 1986 report by the National Academy of Sciences reports that 95 percent of the chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum and include benzene derivatives, aldehydes and many other known toxins and synthesizers capable of causing cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions.

HOW HARMFUL ARE THESE FRAGRANCES?
Even after banning methylene chloride (a known carcinogen that also causes autoimmune disease) in 1989, an EPA study two years later listed the chemical as one of the 20 most common chemicals found in fragrance products. In a 2001 study, the EPA reported that synthetic fragrances were shown to cause “possible mutagenic and genotoxic effects.” Synthetic fragrances have also been shown to contain hormone disruptors which are linked to abnormal cell reproduction and may result in tumor growth.’
