Candles For Those With Fragrance Sensitivities

The idea for Scented By Missi started after buying candles from a big box retailer, and getting a headache only a few minutes after the candles started burning. Does this sound familiar to you? If so, we aren't alone!  Many people have noses that are sensitive to overpowering scents.  This is what separates our brand from others, because we believe candle fragrances are meant to be a beautiful addition to your space, not overpower it.  Let's briefly go through why our candles are perfect for those who have fragrance sensitivities. 

1. Nose-Friendly Ingredients:

Have you ever experienced sneezing fits or headaches triggered by strong candle scents? It's not fun! Our candles are made from 100% soy wax grown in the USA. Made from natural soybeans, they contain fewer irritating chemicals than traditional candles, making them much gentler on sensitive noses. We also carefully select the fragrance oils we use, making sure they are phthalate free, carcinogen free, toxin free and cruelty free. Our candles allow you to breathe easy, knowing that the product you are bringing into your home is not toxic to you or your family.

2. Clean Burning:

Have you ever burned a candle and seen black smoke being released into the air? That could be the result of not only not trimming your wick, but the candle itself being over-fragranced, or other additives being introduced into the wax. When it comes to burning candles, cleanliness matters, which is why we use soy wax without any additives. Our candles burn cleaner and produce less soot compared to their paraffin counterparts, ensuring that your air stays fresh and your walls remains pristine (goodbye black spots!).

3. Earth-Friendly Elegance:

Do you care about the environment and want to make eco-conscious choices? Well, you'll be happy to know that soy candles are as kind to the planet as they are to your senses. Soybeans are a renewable resource, making soy wax a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based paraffin wax. By choosing soy candles, you're not only treating yourself to a euphoric candle experience but also helping to protect our precious planet.
