Autumn is here and with it the drive to snuggle up, hunker down, get the jumpers and cosy blankets out and light a few candles.
That early part of autumn, all woodsmoke and conkers, is one of my favourite times of year and I used to go overboard with cheap Ikea candles all along the windowsills and tea lights everywhere.
It was full on Hygge at my place.
Then I read about what chemicals are actually given off by paraffin wax candles and I stopped all that.
Instead of burning cheap, disposable, chemically candles I bought high quality soy wax candles - they burned more cleanly. Instead of fragrance oils I chose ones with high quality essential oils only.
If I'm going to burn candles next to my bed, or in the bathroom, or snuggled up reading a book then I want them to be adding to my wellbeing - not clogging up my lungs!
So when I decided to create a range of candles for Snapdragon it made sense to have ones which I would happily burn in my own home.
That is why I decided to collaborate with Julie from The Melt Pool - an artisan candle company based in Glasgow - who uses only the best quality soy wax and 100% essential oils.
If you care about what you are breathing in - especially if you or anyone in your home is at all asthmatic - I would say always double check what is in the ingredients of any candles you light around your home.
I was quite shocked when I looked into the ingredients of many of the incredibly expensive branded candles I had been burning in my bedroom - they may have looked swish and smelled lovely but they were sending a streak of chemical soot right up my wall.
