Chip and Joanna’s Magnolia Candle

Nothing makes the home cozier than in-season candles. They are an absolute staple in our home. I’ve been loving the Hearth & Hand With Magnolia candles by Chip and Joanna Gaines.

My favorite scent right now is Cedar Magnolia.

The brown-hued glass container fits any aesthetic in the house. It sits on our end table in the living room beside the couch and I look forward to lighting it every evening. The smell is especially relaxing while watching a movie or reading a book.

I found this gem on a Tuesday night trip to Target browsing the Hearth & Hand collection. To my surprise, there were so many other scents and sizes from the collection to choose from. All of the scents had an earthiness and freshness to them. Not one candle smelled artificial or heavy on the perfume.

Not only does it smell amazing, but it’s not harmful to my health. Most convenient store-bought candles contain a toxic melting chemical called paraffin wax. Paraffin is derived from petroleum and hydrocarbons — the two chemicals together produce a dark spot that gets into linens and lead to respiratory problems. Daily use of toxic candles can increase the risk of developing chronic illnesses, asthma, and even some cancers. The next time you shop for candles, try avoiding anything with paraffin wax listed on the ingredients.

Why I Choose Soy Candles: Soy candles are a safe and natural alternative to petroleum-based candles because they’re made up of soybeans. Soy candles do not release the toxins found in paraffin, but ensure clean burning without detracting from air quality.
