Scented candles are probably one of the most popular gifts to give and gifts to receive. They are useful, luxurious, and often deliciously scented… however scented candles are not always a luxury to welcome. Scented candles have been known to be extremely dangerous during pregnancy.

If you are pregnant, your immediate environment is more important than ever during pregnancy now that you have a baby to nurture! Keep on reading how to make your home a healthier place.

From the moment you find out you're pregnant, your desire to keep yourself and your child as healthy as possible kicks into high gear, right?!

T]hat means eating a balanced diet, exercising moderately, and making your surroundings safe. The most difficult part: protecting yourself and your unborn child from toxins present in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and the household daily products we use.

Unfortunately, many candles on the market are packed full of synthetic ingredients as well as using paraffin wax which when burned, create toxic benzene and toluene chemicals. And when fragrance oils are incorporated into paraffin candles, they produce more soot and can even release carcinogens such as benzene and toluene.

Freshening a room with a few scented candles made from paraffin wax also can be super damaging.

If you rely on candles to de-stress, use safe options with clean, non-toxic fragrances such as NAKEnDLE’s home fragrance varieties.
