Non-Toxic Scents to Use in Your Home

Are your favorite candles and fragrance sprays hurting you? While some researchers say that frequent and prolonged exposure to burning candles or scented sprays can put your health at risk (as many contain chemicals like alkanes, alkenes, and toluene, which could contribute to respiratory issues like allergies and asthma), there is too little information to be sure. Without clarity on the impact these products have on our bodies long-term, we say it’s always better to play it safe. Here are some of our favorite non-toxic home fragrances and candle brands.

Grow Fragrance

Grow Fragrance started with the goal of creating luxurious scents that could be used stress-free around families, children, pets, and friends by using clean, safe, natural ingredients. All of its candles and sprays are 100 percent plant-based and toxin-free, so there’s no question about the air that you’re breathing.

Slow North

With a focus on sustainability and safety, Slow North sells everything from skincare tools to tea to candles. Its candle line is all-natural, and ingredients are proudly printed on the packaging. Slow North offers wonderful natural scents like Grapefruit + Spearmint, Orange + Clove, and Lemongrass + Tangerine. It also has fun fragrances like Hello Sunshine and Forest Bathing. Another must-ha fr ve is the Not Today, Bugs citronella candle.

Grove Collaborative

Grove Collaborative is your go-to destination for paraben-free and formaldehyde-free home and health products, vitamins, makeup, and fragrances. All items are scented with natural ingredients and essential oils. Grove Collaborative also has everything you need to freshen up any room, including laundry products, sheets, pillows, blankets, couches, and carpets.

Scent Fill

This brand offers all-natural scent refills for popular plug-in air fresheners in scents like peppermint, citrus, lavender, eucalyptus, cucumber, and more. The small U.S.-based business allows you to subscribe for regular deliveries, making it easy to keep your home safe and smelling great! Refills can be purchased alone or in a “starter kit” that includes the wall plug-in.

Whether you’re looking for a new signature scent to diffuse throughout your home or simply want to make healthier choices, all-natural and non-toxic fragrance brands should be at the top of your list.
