WHAT could be more relaxing than the scent of an aromatic candle after a hard day working, shopping or looking after the kids?
However recent research presented at the American Chemical Society conference indicates that candles made from paraffin wax can give off toxins that have been linked to asthma, eczema and cancer.
Luckily the range of candles from Cowshed, the brand renowned among beauty editors, is not only indulgent but made with 100 per cent natural wax.
Launched in 1998, it was one of the first brands to specialise in the use of plants and their oils, proteins, essential fatty acids and vitamins.
Every product contains a herbal infusion sourced from the walled garden at Babington House. The products are plant-based and contain naturally-derived ingredients.
Cowshed candles contain GM-free, organic and certified vegan ingredients. The wicks are lead-free and made from natural fibres. The ingredients are sourced from renewable and sustainable sources and are free from chemicals, palm, paraffin and petroleum waxes.
Whether you’re feeling, Knackered, Horny, Lazy or Wild there’s a fragrance to match every mood and occasion.
Cowshed Room Candle RRP £28, Cowshed Travel Candles RRP £20.
