Let’s Get Lit! The Vegan and Eco-Friendly Candles That Are Transforming the Irish Candle Industry

There’s nothing like getting home after a long day of work/college/life, boiling the kettle and lighting a few candles to wind down. As someone who has always been obsessed with candles, I’m always looking for interesting new scents to try and am forever searching for a forever-burning candle. However, I only recently discovered the harmful chemicals that regular paraffin wax candles can emit.

It’s no coincidence that paraffin wax candles are linked to migraines and nausea, as they usually contain the following chemicals when burned:

  • Benzene
  • Acetone
  • Lead
  • Mercury

Known worldwide as potentially cancerous and allergenic ingredients, the formulas of most paraffin wax candles is a potential hazard in your everyday life, and may be doing you more harm than good. This is where the magic of soy-based candles come into play.

Emma’s So Naturals is an Irish cruelty-free and vegan brand created by Emma Fallon, who hand-makes all of her products, sources all of her ingredients from natural origins, and tests her formulas on herself only. Fallon is one of the original candle makers to develop an all-natural range of soy-based candles, using only 100% pure soy and pure essential oils. It’s no surprise that Emma’s So Naturals is taking over the Irish candle industry by storm.
