Are you a Fall Scented Candle Junkie?

Are you a Fall Scented Candle Junkie?
Fall is coming, and one of the biggest fall traditions is spicy smelling candles that remind us of the fall weather and the coming holiday season.  

Well, hold off on those candles until you’ve considered this: 
  
 A 2015 study by university-affiliated researchers in South Korea found that scented candles can release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) both BEFORE they are lit and while they are burning.  That’s right – even an unlit candle releases VOCs into the air you breathe! In the study, they concluded that scented candles “should act as potent sources of VOC emission in indoor environments.”
 
So what’s the problem with VOCs?  They can cause:
 
  • Headaches
  • Irritation to eyes, nose & throat
  • Nausea
  • Liver damaga
  • Kidney damage
  • Central Nervous System damage
Some VOCs have been labeled as carcinogens.  Do you really want to risk it?  

In addition to being a health hazard, the soot from candles can damage appliances, ductwork, the walls and furniture of your home – not to mention your body!

What is Clean Living?

What is Clean Living?
While visiting with a friend the other day, she asked me, "What is clean living, anyway?"  When I thought about the answer, I realized it could mean a lot of different things to different people.  My mind literally went on a crazy rabbit trail thinking about "clean living" could be talking about what we eat, or watch on TV, or listen to on the radio!  I realized, that's not what she was meaning by asking her question, so I reeled my mind in and tried to focus on what she was really wanting to know ~ what does it look like to try to have a home environment that is plant-based and free from harsh chemicals.
