A Healthier Candle Option

If you’ve been looking to be healthier in all areas of your life, an important aspect to evaluate is what you use to scent your home.  The majority of room sprays, diffusers, plug-in fragrances and candles all use very unnatural, synthetic ingredients, a lot of which are known to be hazardous to your health. The quality of the air you breathe is so important so why not control it when you can and make some healthy choices!

I love scenting my home with candles so I’m always looking for a brand that uses high quality, natural ingredients to create amazing scents at an affordable price.  Blissoma does just that. All of their candles are soy based and scented with 100% pure botanical essential oils. They never use phthalates, colorants, or additives.

The variety of blends is some of the best I’ve seen yet. So far my favorites are CELEBRATE, a spicy and warming mix of wild orange, clove and bay, and LOVE, a combination of ylang ylang, sandalwood, and balsam. Every one of their candles comes with instant aromatherapy benefits upon lighting – another plus to using candles scented with pure essential oils!


I love giving and receiving candles as gifts. What about you?

Simple & natural air fresheners!

  • White vinegar – removes odors naturally on surfaces and in the air.
  • Baking soda- absorbs odors.  Keep an open box in the refrigerator, closets, under sinks, etc.
  • Essential oils:  1. diluted in water can be used as a room spray  (try sweet orange &  lavender or lemon & cedar)   2. add to a bowl of water – adds moisture to dry, inside air during winter months   3. burn in an aromatherapy diffuser (my favorite!)
  • Soy or beeswax candles – made of natural waxes so you can enjoy the pleasant scent without harmful chemicals being released into the air.
  • Boiling spices like cinnamon in water releases its scent.
