Are you using scented wax bars in your home or office to create a fragrant atmosphere?

Whether you are buying scented wax bars or making your own version, you might want to evaluate if your candles release an aroma that is both deliciously scented and healthy for you.

Christina, over at The Hippy Homemaker, has developed a way to make non-toxic wax tarts; that is, wick-less bars that release a wide variety of incredible fragrances into the air when heated by a low-watt warming device.

To make these homemade non-toxic wax tarts, Christina uses a combination of soy flakes, coconut oil, and beeswax pastilles in place of any kind of paraffin wax. While paraffin wax is a petroleum-based product (think sludge waste created when crude oil is refined into gasoline), Christina’s wax tart ingredients are all natural and can even be organically sourced. Most importantly, the heating of the wax tarts does not release any questionable toxic fumes into the air. And that’s a good thing, right?

Additionally, Christina uses only essential oils to scent her non-toxic wax tarts. Similar to the wax ingredients, the essential oils can be sourced for purity, organic and/or wild-crafted properties, and even for therapeutic use. Christina asserts that essential oils should be used over any type of generic fragrance because labeling for “fragrance” can include numerous ingredients and chemicals, many of which are known to be toxic when heated or burned.

Over at The Hippy Homemaker, Christina shares her recipes for her homemade non-toxic wax tarts. You can make and enjoy these lovely scents or create your own:

Celtic Faerie
Dreamcatcher
Peppermint Bark
Oranges & Clove
Pumpkin Spice
Twilight Gypsy
Harvest Moon
Hot Apple Pie
Cinnamon Vanilla Late’
Sugar Plum Faeries
Winter Woods
Woods & Spice & Everything Nice

If you are already using scented wax bars in your home or office, you might consider checking the ingredient list.

If you want to make sure that you are using natural (organic and non-GMO), ingredients to create wonderful aromas in your living or working space, then you can use Christina’s recipes, and shop for ingredients you can trust to burn cleanly without the chance of any noxious chemicals. This way you not only will know for certain the ingredients you are using, but you’ll also know that the ingredients are safe for you and for your friends and family.

We think you’ll love Christina’s non-toxic wax tarts. They’re not only a wonderful way to scent your home or office, but they also make for beautiful gifts any time of the year. You can use all sizes and shapes of molds to create a unique look and a packaged gift, and it’s your option to include a decorative warming device to heat the tarts.
