Scented candles - bewareScented candles - beware

The vast majority of candles are scented with fragrant oils. Fragrant oils (also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils and flavour oils) are blended synthetic aroma compounds that are then diluted with a carrier such as propylene glycol, vegetable oil or mineral oil*. Mineral oil is, of course, another petrochemical. These are fragrances created in a laboratory – there is little that is ‘natural’ about them. Candle-makers prefer to use fragrant oils because they are considerably cheaper than essential oils and they are also typically less volatile.
