To avoid exposure to paraffin candles, talk to your local spa about the products they use before booking. Many spas will make it clear in their name that they avoid harmful products by using terms such as ‘green spa or ‘organic spa’, however we still recommend checking with staff about exactly what types of products they are using. If they are burning pure beeswax candles, then you can sit back and relax, knowing you are not breathing in harmful fumes and enjoy the warm glow that only pure beeswax candles can provide.
If you can’t find a spa whose products you are comfortable with, then head to the Honey Candles online store and put on your own home spa day!
