Scented Candles

This year, instead of the usual candles and perfume, give safer, greener versions of these holiday staples. Here are some great eco-friendly alternatives to typical holiday gifts.

Many eco-icky scented candles can be extremely toxic due to the paraffin and artificial fragrances used in their production. Make sure that the candles you buy are made from either beeswax or soy and they're scented with authentic essential oils.
