Ditching the Candles: Fall Essential Oil Blends

I think it’s safe to say it’s officially the Fall Season! Pumpkins are out, leaves are changing, pumpkin breads are baking, and all the fall smells are filling everyone’s homes. This fall season, ditch the candles and replace them with essential oils! Candles are filled with toxins, such as acetone, lead, benzene, and toluene, all of which are either cancer causing or have negative impacts on your brain, lungs, kidneys or nervous system. If you need more reasons why you shouldn’t be burning candles in your homes, go visit Wellness Mama’s post “Why I Don’t Use Scented Candles.” I was in shock at some of those facts! Switching out your candles for essential oils not only removes these toxins from your home, but essential oils have positive impacts on your overall wellness.

So, cozy up with your favorite oversized sweater and a glass of apple cider, and let these blends fill your home with all the warm smells of fall!
