The choice of candles today is extremely wide, they can be purchased when shopping in an ordinary supermarket, in interior stores, and pick them from an endless selection of domestic or foreign online stores alike. Still, one should consider paying attention to some aspects before purchasing such an everyday product.
If you recall the time 10-20 years ago, the range of goods was incomparably smaller, and not much more than ordinary paraffin wax candles could be bought in the local stores. So, even today we tend to make a habitual choice, but before buying a candle made of paraffin wax, affordable for everyone and available everywhere, one should know about their harmful effects.
Thus, when burning a candle, paraffin wax releases various chemicals with toxic effects, such as benzene and formaldehyde, as well as many candles contain volatile synthetic fragrances into the air during combustion. Paraffin candle is certainly not environmentally friendly either, as, in short, paraffin is one of the by-products of petroleum, and petroleum is known to be a non-renewable natural resource. We cannot neglect the fact that paraffin candles emit soot during combustion, which, when burning a larger number of candles, can stain the surrounding surfaces.
Of course, the occasional use of paraffin candles does not incur major adverse consequences, but we can certainly argue that there are much more environmentally friendly alternatives available today, and one of them is TheCandledust powder candles, which have been created by us with conservation and recovery issues in mind.
One of the most important advantages of a powder candle is that the possibilities to create a completely your “own” and personalized candle are practically endless. If you buy tea candles or ordinary candles, in most cases they are packaged in glass and the case will always be left over after use. There is nothing to do with the aluminium waste remaining from the tea candle except throw it away, but you can fill the glass container of a regular candle with a powder candle in the future.
Of course, when creating a powder candle, you can use all kinds of other suitable holders, such as jars, old favourite cups or other dishes – the possibilities are endless. By creating your own candle, you can choose a candle case suitable for a particular room or situation. Candles with several wicks in large shallow containers look especially beautiful and magnificent, it is only necessary to note that the distance between the candle wicks should be not less than 8 centimeters. Of course, the containers you use as candle holders must be heat-resistant.
With TheCandledust powder candles, you can create different interior items as often as every day – you will never get bored with a powder candle! To stimulate your imagination, TheCandledust offers a wide range of filling packs for powder candles scented with different notes. When creating your own candles, the garbage generated is minimal, and when making powder candles, we use only full-plant, eco-friendly candle wax.
