Perfect Candles for Spring
The clocks have gone forward and a change of season is on the horizon. As the days are getting both longer and lighter the mood is getting sunnier and turning to scents that remind us of the great outdoors and blossoming nature. For Mistik Spa, this means the candles that remind us most of spring. Fill your house with its aroma and massage your body with the properties of our uplifting 100% vegan essential oils. We’d recommend:

Please also know that as spring is the time for new life we think about preserving the one we’ve got at Mistik Spa, with a commitment to both our customers’ health and the environment in which they live.
When conducting our research into the cosmetics industry, we were shocked at the amount of harsh chemicals that are currently used, in particular with candles. Some candles still contain lead wicks that emit dangerous amounts of lead fumes to be inhaled by you and your children. Paraffin wax which needs to be processed with 100% strength bleach, creating dangerous dioxins and containing volatile organic compounds such as formaldehyde and vinyl chlorine, correlative to serious health problems. Even sulphates, which most people will have no problem with, but can cause irritation, particularly for people with sensitive skin.
At Mistik Spa we understand the frustration that people with sensitive skin have when buying skincare products, so we go that extra mile to make sure our products can be used with no fear. Likewise, our commitment to our customers extends beyond simply their own minds and bodies, to the environment in which we all must live. Let’s start with the candles that we burn in our homes. The black soot from paraffin candles gives of the same kind of soot as from the exhaust of a diesel engine. These kinds of candles also contain silicone, which does recycle but only a special facilities as it doesn’t decompose. Most likely, these candles will end up at a landfill and never decompose.Back to List
