We eliminate highly hazardous ingredients that are ubiquitous in other fragrances, and we disclose more information about the materials in our own scented products. These unprecedented standards stretched the creativity of our third party perfumers and fragrance chemists who had never developed fragrances in this way. At the same time, we overhauled our testing processes, partnered with people with the skills, education, and experience to rise to this occasion, and developed brand new tools for evaluating fragrance oils. The first phase of this work was to reformulate our fragrances to be free of phthalates (cancer-causing ingredients that require a Proposition...

Consciously Crafted Room Sprays

Candle Knowledge

A (long) hidden, bad reputation... Most candles are made of paraffin wax (a petroleum waste product that is chemically bleached), which creates highly toxic benzene and toluene (both are known carcinogens) when burned. In fact, the petro-soot released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes and can be as dangerous at second-hand smoke. In 2001, the EPA concluded that burning paraffin candles emit harmful toxins and increase health risks with multiple exposures. Even the recent popular soy wax candles contain paraffin.  Wicks & Scents Candle wicks can also be a source of toxins in scented candles. In the US, candle wicks are supposed to be made of cotton or paper, but lead-core wicks are...
