It’s no secret that paraffin wax candles emit dangerous compounds when burned, dirtying your home’s indoor air quality and affecting your health. Don’t burn toxic candles! Opt for a clean-burning candle made from soy, beeswax or palm wax. While some sustainable candles cost more than their traditional counterparts, palm wax candles are a relatively inexpensive alternative to paraffin wax candles—especially when bought in bulk from GoodLight Natural Candles.

The founders of GoodLight Natural Candles didn’t set out to create palm wax candles; they set out to make a nontoxic, inexpensive alternative to the paraffin wax candles burned in restaurants around the nation and discovered palm wax along the way. While palm wax has a number of environmental issues associated with it (mainly deforestation), the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, of which GoodLight Natural Candles is a member, is working to combat those issues while offering a sustainable option.

GoodLight Natural Candles offers 100 percent palm wax candles in a variety of sizes, from tea lights and votives to pillars and tapers. The wicks are made from cotton and contain no lead, zinc or other heavy metals that will spew into the air upon burning. Because GoodLight Natural Candles were originally developed for commercial settings, many of their products come in bulk as well as more reasonable-sized packages for home settings. Prices range from $2 for a six-pack of tea lights to $240 for a bulk box of 48 pillar candles. GoodLight’s products are packaged in recycled material printed with soy-based inks.
