Whenever there is a hint of fall being near, I start pulling out all of my fall candles. It could be one brown leaf on the ground, a cool day, or it could be the fall decor that you start seeing in every store. Whatever it may be, I immediately dive into the leaves of pumpkin spice everything, especially fall candles.
I recently bought a few new natural soy fall candles and I wanted to share what I had found.
Purchasing these nice, new, hand-poured soy fall candles inspired me to take better care of my candles. I started researching how to properly care for my candles, which you can read about here! I bought a candle care set for the wick trimmer and for putting out flames. I even bought a new match set with a glass jar for decorative storage.
What makes a candle natural?
A lot of candles are made with paraffin wax, which releases carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) such as toluene and benzene. The toxins created from paraffin wax have been most commonly compared to those found in diesel fumes. I try not to inhale gasoline and diesel fumes on a regular basis, so I don’t want them in my everyday candles. Candles made with natural soy wax or beeswax are created purely from natural wax resources without the added chemicals. It’s also important to read the details for the type of wick being used. I look for candles that include cotton, wood, or hemp wick as they are natural resources.
NATURAL SOY FALL CANDLES
SPICED PUMPKIN LATTE BY VOLUSPA
You can find this candle at Anthropologie and on Amazon. It smells so delicious and feels like a more luxurious soy fall candle. It is made out of natural coconut wax with a cotton wick. The scents feature notes of pumpkin, vanilla marshmallow, cinnamon-spiced brûlée, and coconut crema.
This particular candle from Amazon Handmade seems to be out of stock, but I am linking a similar one by this shop. I love the black glass container for fall and how the inside resembles the color of a pumpkin. The smell is delicious and I appreciate that it is hand-poured natural wax. If you want to wait for the Pumpkin Sticks candle to come back in stock, follow the link and save the store as one to keep an eye out for future products!
I found this brand, Homesick while searching the Amazon Handmade page for natural soy fall candles. I love the modern look of their candles and the fun names they give all of their scents! This is a brand to follow on Instagram and keep in your back pocket of quality candle brands!
