Monkey Farts, Tired as a Mother, They Whine I Wine… These are a few of the amazing scents of candles from one of my absolute favorite CLEAN candle companies, Happy Little Flame. My friend Bex was on a mission to create a clean burning candle after discovering how toxic regular candles can be.
Most candles on the market are made with paraffin wax which is made from petroleum. When burned, paraffin releases toxic chemicals into the air including known carcinogens like benzene and toluene. Bex makes her candles out of soy wax and coconut wax made from cold pressed coconut meat. She also uses 100% cotton wicks that are free of lead and zinc to keep the air we breathe in our home clean.
On top of being family friendly, her candle names CRACK ME UP. Monkey Farts, being one of my absolute favorites for summer, is a fruity pineapple scent that I keep in the patio for cocktail nights with friends and Tired as a Mother is a beautiful lavender vanilla scent that gets lit in our house when the lights go down for the evening. Even with toys strewn across the floor and unfolded laundry staring at me, this candle brings me peace in the evening after the baby goes to bed.
We all have our “things” that we are into and candles happen to be mine.. Poopy diaper in the trash? Light a candle. Cleaning old leftovers out of the fridge? Light a candle. Had a tough day? Light a candle, and open a bottle of wine…
