Candles vs Diffusers

Author: Dr. Larita

Do you like aromatherapy candles? Most people use aromatherapy candles because they like the scent. You can have the scent without the toxins by using an aromatherapy diffuser. Here are three reasons why you might want to consider using a diffuser instead of candles:

  • Most candles are made of an unhealthy petroleum by-product – paraffin. If you use candles for any reason, use only the ones made of soy or beeswax.
  • If the candle has a metal wick instead of a cotton one, it is probably releasing lead into the air.
  • Too many times the aroma comes from a synthetic scent that is toxic even when it is unburned.j
  • Some experts believe burning essential oils reduces their therapeutic value.

 

I usually use an aromatherapy diffuser to burn essential oils to scent my rooms or for other aromatherapy purposes. I also love burning scented candles but I am careful of the type of candles I burn. If you simply love the ambiance of flickering candle light, you can now purchase flameless candles.
